Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made it clear at a recent event that the Trump administration disagrees with the international push to make abortion a human right. He also stated that he tries to make decisions based on God’s truth.

“Abortion quite simply isn’t a human right,” Pompeo declared during an appearance at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa last week. “It takes a life.” He maintained that “this administration appreciates and knows that our rights come from God, not government.”
