G7 Development Ministers Meeting Focused On Women, Girls But No Mention Of Reproductive Rights In Declaration

Devex: No mention of reproductive rights in declarations out of G7 development ministerial
“Official declarations released by the G7 at the conclusion of a three-day development ministerial focused on women and girls — but with no mention of reproductive rights. Instead, the Declaration on Unlocking the Power of Adolescent Girls for Sustainable Development said the G7 countries committed to ‘promoting and protecting adolescent health and well-being, through evidence-based health care and health information.’ … Delegates and observers of the meetings speaking on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss confidential briefings told Devex that the U.S. delegation at the meeting of the seven most advanced economies was responsible for the softer official language in the declarations…” (Welsh, 6/4).
