On October 22, 2020, 34 countries signed the Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women’s Health and Strengthening the Family. Though it lacked any legal obligations, the statement was intended to express that it was indeed possible to advance the health and wellbeing of women and protect the lives of the preborn at the same time.  

The original list of countries included the United States. In fact, then Secretary of State Mike Pompeo helped to architect the project. Eight days after becoming president, Joe Biden removed the United States from the list of signatories in line with the foreign policy of the last two democratic presidents, who used access to U.S. aid to advance abortion and LGBTQ ideology around the world.  

On Tuesday in Washington D.C., seven U.S. Congressional leaders and ambassadors from Guatemala and Hungary hosted 36 original signatories to the Geneva Consensus Declaration, to reaffirm the commitment to protect “both the rights of women and unborn children.” Senator James Lankford from Oklahoma put it bluntly: “When families are strong, nations are strong. When families are weak, nations are weak.”
