On October 22nd, 2020, the Geneva Consensus Declaration was formally signed by 32 nations representing over 1.6 billion people (approximately one-fifth of the world’s population).
The Geneva Consensus Declaration, signed by the United States, Brazil, Egypt, Hungary, Indonesia, Uganda and 26 other countries, makes clear that there is ‘no international right to abortion, nor any international obligation’ on the part of nations around the world to finance or facilitate abortion. The declaration affirms what we already know from international law—that while there is no human right to an abortion, there is a right to life, and it must be protected.
Under the Geneva Consensus Declaration, signatory nations have endorsed a number of bold pro-life, pro-family declarations. For example, signers have committed to the following:
-Emphasize that “in no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning”...
-Reaffirm that “the child needs special safeguards and care before as well as after birth”...
-Reaffirm that “the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State”; that “motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance,” that “women play a critical role in the family” and women’s “contribution to the welfare of the family and to the development of society”.
-Reaffirm that there is no international right to abortion, nor any international obligation on the part of State to finance or facilitate abortion...
The Geneva Consensus Declaration advances the right to life and the centrality of the natural family at the United Nations and around the globe.
