U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice is facing opposition from Senate Republicans in her potential bid to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Perhaps it's because Ms. Rice hopes to enforce strict population control measures on a global scale.
According to LifeNews, "as recently as June, she was upset the document the United Nations adopted at its Rio20 conference last week did not promote abortion by inserting items like 'reproductive rights' into the language of the text."
The Vatican had successfully rallied a diverse group of other countries to remove any mention of reproductive rights or population control from the final outcome document produced by the last round of UN negations at the Rio20 conference. The UN Population Fund (UNFPA), as well as Norway, Iceland, Catholics for Choice and the International Planned Parenthood Federation, tried to enforce global abortion on demand laws along with population control.
"However," as reported by LifeNews, "nations like Nicaragua, Chile, Russia, Honduras, Syria, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Egypt all rejected the introduction of 'reproductive rights' into the Rio20 outcome document."
