The Institute for Marriage and Family (IEF), of Vienna, noted that the US circulated the declaration as an official document of the United Nations in mid-December and presented it to the General Assembly. The undersigned states emphasize that there is no right to abortion and that the classic family is the basis of society. The goals formulated in the declaration include improving health care for women and protecting national sovereignty. There could be no international obligation to finance abortion, the statement said. The declaration is not binding, but documents the attitude of the signatory states, in which a total of 1.6 billion people live.
While, it can be assumed that UN organizations will continue to promote abortions, many member states that have signed the declaration could hold the UN accountable in the event of abuse of abortion. The “Geneva Consensus Declaration on Promoting Women's Health and Strengthening Families” was jointly initiated by Egypt, Brazil, Indonesia, Uganda, the USA and Hungary.
