Biden Administration Repudiates Unalienable Human Rights, Elevates Sexual Rights Instead

These people are the most radical we have ever seen in the White House.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken made two recent moves that will raise alarms among pro-lifers and other conservatives.

First, he “repudiated” the work of the U.S. Commission on Unalienable Rights, founded by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and chaired by Harvard Professor Mary Ann Glendon.

At the same time, Blinken promised to elevate “sexual and reproductive rights” in the annual human rights report issued by the State Department. This is also a reversal from the Trump administration that removed abortion from the annual report because abortion is not recognized as a human right.

The moves drew praise from abortion groups and criticism from conservatives.

The lobbying arm of the global abortion industry in Washington D.C., a group called CHANGE, praised Blinken’s remarks and launched a social media campaign to support him.

Blinken chided the Trump administration for seeking to prioritize unalienable civil and political rights that are in line with the U.S. Constitution over social and economic rights, saying there was no “hierarchy” of human rights.

“All people are entitled to these rights, no matter where they’re born, what they believe, whom they love, or any other characteristic,” Blinken emphasized.

Conservatives expressed confusion and disapproval.

At the Council on Foreign Relations, former Bush and Trump White House advisor Elliot Abrams called Blinken’s characterizations of the U.S. Commission on Unalienable Rights “unfair” and “unworthy of the State Department and the Secretary.” He accused Blinken of bowing to political pressure and questioned whether Blinken had even read the report of the commission.
