In what critics denounced as the Trump administration\u0026#039;s latest attack on women\u0026#039;s rights across the globe, U.S. officials are reportedly threatening to veto a United Nations Security Council resolution seeking to end the use of rape as a weapon of war over its language on reproductive health.\u0022In the latest step in Trump\u0026#039;s war on women, U.S. opposes healthcare for survivors of rape during war. Yes, you read that right.\u0022 —Heather Barr, Human Rights WatchAccording to the Guardian—which first reported on U.S. opposition to the measure late Monday—Trump officials are objecting to the resolution\u0026#039;s \u0022language on victims\u0026#039; support from family planning clinics.\u0022\u0022In recent months, the Trump administration has taken a hard line, refusing to agree to any U.N. documents that refer to sexual or reproductive health, on grounds that such language implies support for abortions,\u0022 the\u0026nbsp;Guardian\u0026nbsp;reported. \u0022It has also opposed the use of the word \u0026#039;gender,\u0026#039; seeing it as a cover for liberal promotion of transgender rights.\u0022The Trump administration\u0026#039;s opposition to the measure, proposed by Germany, quickly sparked international outrage.\u0022If we let the Americans do this and take out this language, it will be watered down for a long time,\u0022 an anonymous European diplomat told the Guardian. \u0022It is, at its heart, an attack on the progressive normative framework established over the past 25 years.\u0022Heather Barr, acting co-director of the women\u0026#039;s rights division at Human Rights Watch, tweeted: \u0022In the latest step in Trump\u0026#039;s war on women, U.S. opposes healthcare for survivors of rape during war. Yes, you read that right.\u0022Others also took to Twitter to condemn the Trump administration\u0026#039;s efforts:The Trump administration is so obsessed with ensuring women remain walking incubators that it is willing to destroy an anti-rape resolution.US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape as weapon of war, officials say https://t.co/Gk8vQ5m39h— Mona Eltahawy (@monaeltahawy) April 22, 2019A reminder of how morally despicable the US is on the global stage https://t.co/irJQpVKWSa— Jonathan \u0022Boo and Vote\u0022 Cohn (@JonathanCohn) April 22, 2019Pramila Patten, U.N. special representative on sexual violence in conflict, told the Guardian that the resolution\u0026#039;s passage is now in serious doubt due to U.S. opposition.\u0022We are not even sure whether we are having the resolution [Tuesday], because of the threats of a veto from the U.S.,\u0022 Patten said.The resolution seeks to improve monitoring of sexual violence in conflict, punish perpetrators, and increase support for victims.Patten said the language on reproductive health \u0022is being maintained for the time being and we\u0026#039;ll see over the next 24 hours how the situation evolves.\u0022\u0022It will be a huge contradiction that you are talking about a survivor-centered approach and you do not have language on sexual and reproductive healthcare services, which is for me the most critical,\u0022 said Patten.
