The United States signaled it may drop a demand for anti-abortion language that raised hackles at a U.N. women's conference, but the top U.S. delegate insisted on Wednesday that many nations agree with Washington.
I hope that is true, although this may be a sad day for Pro Lifers out there.
Update: It looks like this information appears to be false. Pro Life Blogs has the scoop.
Diplomats close to the negotiations here said the Bush administration, which opposes abortion at home and abroad, probably would drop the demand, and the top U.S. delegate hinted at it in an address to participants.
"The United States recognizes the ... principle that abortion policies are a matter of national sovereignty," said Ellen Sauerbrey, who heads the U.S. delegation.
Next thing you know they will be saying the same thing about Euthanasia.
Update: Euthanasia.com? Hmm...
