Alexis Fragosa is the Director of Government Relations for the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam) in Washington, D.C. She is also the Director of the International Youth Coalition. She is here to discuss President Biden nominating Sarah Cleveland as the Chief Legal Advisor to the Department of State
While serving on the UN Human Rights Committee, Cleveland was a champion of abortion, advocating for General Comment 36, which asserts that governments must “remove existing barriers that deny effective access by women and girls to safe and legal abortion.” *One of the primary concerns is that under her guidance, the Department of State could incorporate a radical pro-abortion policy as part of the vast foreign assistance the US government issues worldwide.
*Even self-professed Pro-Life Senators seem to have no desire to fight her nomination. Not a single one brought up her extreme track record or questioned her suitability for one of the most important positions at the Department of State.
The Major Point: Alexis talks about how devastating this could be to the moral standing of the United States to allow a person with such radical views the keys to the kingdom of the State Department, and how this could lead to the US following the UN's lead in insisting that abortion is somehow a human right that must be promoted by all governments.
