New American: The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) — a body that currently includes such paragons of human rights as China, Cuba, Pakistan, and Venezuela — is set to hear a report on Wednesday that prioritizes abortion and treatments for so-called transgender individuals over things such as hospital access and lack of medications in some countries during the COVID-19 pandemic.

There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death.” Proverbs 14:12

The UNHRC is set to meet from June 23 until July 13 in Geneva, Switzerland. According to the organization, Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health for the UNHRC Tlaleng Mofokeng of South Africa is set to deliver a report that will “shed light on the current status/level of realization of the right to sexual and reproductive health and the availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of related services, during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Among Dr. Mofokeng’s credentials are her focuses “on gender equality, policy, maternal and neonatal health, universal health access, post violence care, menstrual health, and HIV management.”

Dr. Mofokeng also boasts being on the boards of the Safe Abortion Action Fund — an organization formed in 2006 specifically to target the United States’ so-called global gag rule prohibiting abortion funding for NGOs outside of the United States — and the Global Advisory Board for Sexual Health and Wellbeing, Accountability International.

Both groups have close ties to the International Planned Parenthood Foundation and are pro-abortion in the extreme.
