Trump administration insists UN resolution opposing rape in war cannot offer 'sexual and....

.....reproductive health' assistance to victims

The UN Security Council passed a resolution that seeks action against rape as a weapon of war, after impassioned pleas by activists including Amal Clooney.

The resolution, sponsored by Germany, only received a green light after sections that vowed to offer “sexual and reproductive health” assistance to survivors of sexual violence, were removed at the insistence of the US, which had otherwise threatened to veto it entirely.

In language that was notably stern about one of its allies, France’s UN ambassador, Francois Delattre, told the 15-member body it was inexplicable that an undertaking to provide such help had been removed.

“It is intolerable and incomprehensible that the Security Council is incapable of acknowledging that women and girls who suffered from sexual violence in conflict – and who obviously didn’t choose to become pregnant – should have the right to terminate their pregnancy,” he said.

I honestly think the UN should have told the US to fuck off on this one. The US spreading theocracy one resolution at a time. Especially classy when they use rape victims to spread their bollocks

2. As a permanent member of the Security Council the US gets a veto

so unfortunately they couldn't just say "no, fuck off".

3. Yeah - because God forbid a raped woman gets pregnant & a sexually transmitted disease and wants to

.....have medical attention....

Or a man is raped anally and torn and needs medical attention.

Or a child is raped and their internal organs so badly damaged and injured...

Yeah - God forbid that the rape victims get sexual and reproductive medical attention...

Disgusting

7. If a raped victim gets pregnant...

Do they really want to go the "It was God's will that this child is born through a war-crime" route?
