Brian Dixon, senior vice president of media and government relations at Population Connection Action Fund, said:

“The Trump administration’s refusal to support a UN resolution calling for access to reproductive and sexual health care for women and girls raped in conflict settings is reprehensible. It’s another abdication of responsibility to stand up for human rights and betrays a shocking disregard for human life and, frankly, basic decency.

We are horrified and ashamed.”
