In a press conference, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about this issue: But, to your... read more

At first glance, one may feel very impressed by an amicus brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court in the Dobbs case by eight experts of the United Nations. These experts – also called U. N. Special Rapporteurs and mandate-holders – are using their authority to try and convince the Supreme Court of the existence of a “right to abortion” based on human rights.
