Excerpt of UPI article that quotes GJC President Akila Radhakrishnan.
The Global Justice Center lambasted the Trump administration Thursday, saying despite its rhetoric it has never put the health of women first.
"This administration has consistently [put] both women's bodies, here at home and abroad, last," Akila Radhakrishnan, president of Global Justice Center, said in a statement.
"Just because these regressive governments keep asserting that abortion is not a human right, doesn't make it true; the international human rights framework is clear on this issue," Radhakrishnan said. "There is a reason why none of the U.S.' traditional allies, nor countries with strong records on human rights, joined this declaration -- if flies in the face of decades of hard-fought victories for the rights for women."
