Washington D.C., Dec 13, 2018 / 14:21 pm
A bill was introduced Monday in the US House of Representatives to require that the State Department include "reproductive rights" in its annual human rights report.
The Reproductive Rights are Human Rights Act of 2018 was introduced Dec. 10 by Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA-5), and was referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
The Trump administration's State Department included statistics on "coercion in population control" rather than "reproductive rights" in its 2017 annual human rights report.
The State Department's decision was applauded by pro-life leaders.
