The Washington Examiner Opinion Piece: Debasing Women’s Rights at UN with Same Old Mantra

By | Blog, News and Events, United Nations | No Comments

CWA’s Shea Garrison, the organization’s vice president of international affairs, writes in a new opinion piece: “The use of rape as a method of war is one of the most egregious acts of domination and debasement of women that the world has ever seen. Supporting a United Nations resolution to stand against this cruel crime is something that all international organizations can get behind to honor and elevate women.

Insisting that abortion language is included in these resolutions is not. It is a worn-out political agenda masquerading as the promotion of women’s rights — just because you repeat something over and over.

Victory for All Americans

Washington, D.C. –  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has issued a final rule to protect the “conscience” rights of our nation’s health care professionals. This new rule will allow health care workers to follow their moral and religious convictions about the services they provide without discrimination. President Trump made the announcement at a National Day of Prayer event Thursday.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America (CWA) applauded the administration’s move and made the following statement:

“Religious liberty lies at the foundations of American values. President Donald J. Trump’s Administration honors and respects the very essence of liberty by ensuring these principles are protected. The hundreds of thousands of Concerned Women for America supporters around the country stand with him in this endeavor and applaud his unwavering commitment to the protection of liberties for all Americans and not just a privileged few.

“We count this as another promise kept by President Trump who is simply living up to the vision he unveiled on the campaign trail. These regulations fully implement longstanding protections that had been shamefully neglected under previous administrations. We are grateful for these much-needed developments.”
