Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 25, 2019

The United States has been roundly criticised for insisting that a UN measure opposing rape in wartime, could not offer "sexual and reproductive health" help to survivors of such incidents. The UN Security Council passed a resolution that seeks action against rape as a weapon of war, after impassioned pleas by activists including Amal Clooney. The resolution, sponsored by Germany, only received a green light after sections that vowed to offer "sexual and reproductive health" assistance to survivors of sexual violence, were removed at the insistence of the US, which had otherwise threatened to veto it entirely.

Shameful to pander to right wing Christians through our foreign policy.

Our president is an admitted sex offender so this shouldn't come as a surprise.

Conservatives love rape.

If it wasn't for rape, many of them would never have been born.

If God didn't want women to be raped, God would have made them the stronger gender.

What an ignorant comment. You should be ashamed of yourself, clown. If we're going to try to be fair, the UN as a whole has a big problem with covering up rape, so it's unlikely that this problem is confined to a single ideology.

any self-respecting european-american, male or female, needs to get out of the DNC ASAP. They've already poisoned you, and are positioning to deal the fatal strike while are too muddled to discern otherwise. You have a target on your back, and it's been preapproved. The only variable is when you become an official target. www.youtube.com
