The Russian Federation has joined the Geneva Consensus Declaration on Women’s Health and Protection of the Family, said Valerie Huber, president of the Institute for Women’s Health, on October 28 in Washington.
During the celebration of the first anniversary of the Declaration, at the U.S. Capitol, Huber said that “it is alive and growing; […] what is moving more and more countries to join the consensus is the need to challenge harmful policies, imposed by international organizations, that compromise life, the family and our own sovereignty”.
The governments that sign the Declaration establish a coalition that works for women’s health, the defense of life in all of its stages, the integrity of family and the sovereignty of all nations; and, together they resist the pressure exerted by international organizations to impose abortion as a right, or regulations that violate families.
The initiative was launched in October 2021, originally by the United States, Hungary, Egypt, Brazil, Indonesia and Uganda. There are currently 36 signatory states, with Russia and Guatemala, which joined on October 12.
