The United States on Thursday signed an anti-abortion declaration along with more than 30 countries representing over 1.6 billion people.

Overnight, women in Poland took to the streets to protest a clampdown on abortion rights in that country.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar took part in a virtual signing ceremony of the Geneva Consensus Declaration. Egypt, Uganda, Brazil, Hungary and Indonesia co-sponsored the pact along with the U.S. Thirty-two nations signed it.

The nonbinding declaration says it seeks to improve women's health, preserve human life and strengthen the family unit.

"We, the representatives of our sovereign nations do hereby declare in mutual friendship and respect, our commitment to work together to: Reaffirm that there is no international right to abortion," the declaration read.

5. Boo! Hiss! Boo!

This administration wants to turn back the clock. Bring back Jim Crow and making it the woman's fault if she's raped.
