It was announced on Capitol Hill today that the Russian government has joined the Geneva Consensus Declaration on Women’s Health and Protection of the Family. To mark the historic pro-life agreement’s one-year anniversary Congressional pro-life leaders introduced a resolution to affirm the declaration principles.

“When other nations or international agencies interject unhealthy and harmful policies upon you that compromise life, family, and your own sovereignty —they must be challenged,” said Valerie Huber, president of the Institute for Women’s Health which hosted an event to mark the first anniversary of the declaration in the Kennedy Room of the Russell Senate building.

The pro-life agreement was the first time that a broad coalition of countries jointly rejected attempts by the United Nations to promote abortion as an international right.
