Groups Unite to Support the U.S. Commission on Unalienable Rights

NEWS PROVIDED BY

Concerned Women for America

Aug. 9, 2019

 

WASHINGTON, Aug. 9, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently announced the U.S. Commission on Unalienable Rights to ground U.S. foreign policy on human rights in America's founding principles of individual dignity and freedom. A letter, signed by forty-six of the most influential human rights, women's, and religious freedom organizations and leaders applauds Sec. Pompeo for his leadership in creating the Commission.

 

Concerned Women for America's CEO and President, Penny Nance, and Vice President of International Affairs, Dr. Shea Garrison, had this to say:

 

"We applaud Secretary Pompeo for creating the U.S. Commission on Unalienable Rights. This is a significant moment in our history as we refocus U.S. foreign policy on the principles of America's founding--that all people are created with unalienable rights such as "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

 

Many activists today promote their objectives as "human rights," confusing government-given social and economic goals with God-given fundamental or unalienable rights. This waters-down the essence of human rights, leading to less individual freedom, not more. Dilution of human rights takes the focus off of real victims of abuse and gives authoritarian governments cover to promote economic or social benefits as fundamental human rights, all while oppressing religious liberty, censoring the press, or imprisoning political dissidents.

 

But, when our fundamental or unalienable human rights are protected, we then have the freedom to advocate for our goals, ideologies, and political preferences.

 

We are grateful for Sec. Pompeo's leadership in creating the U.S. Commission on Unalienable Rights. We believe the Commission can do more than secure unalienable rights and remedy human rights abuse, it can reassert the right kind of American leadership in our world today.

 

The world is freer when America leads."
