Pro-life congressmen thwart US support for UN abortion initiative
Pro-life U.S. congressmen, lead by Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Bart Stupak (D-MI), rescued a congressional resolution supporting reduction of women’s mortality at home and abroad from surreptitiously advancing the UN's pro-abortion agenda. House Resolution 1022, as now drafted, promotes both "maternal health and child survival" without a stealth promotion of abortion.

The language that was removed by Smith and Stupak called for funding of "global initiatives" and the recognition of maternal health as a "human right." Using such language would have lent U.S. support for a new pro-abortion initiative launched at a London conference last October called “Women Deliver.” At the Women Deliver conference pro-abortion advocates launched the International Initiative on Maternal Mortality and Human Rights that seeks to link the maternal mortality issue with access to abortion while furthering development of "soft law" norms that include abortion as a human right.[...]

In a statement preceding passage of the bill, Rep. Smith pointed out that "when women receive proper prenatal care, they are less likely to die in childbirth," adding that the final form of the resolution "does not endorse – in any way whatsoever – the cruel ideology that pits women against babies by suggesting abortion as a means of combating maternal mortality."
