🚨Pompeo announces new State Dept commission to review the role of #HumanRights and "natural law" in American foreign policy. "Natural law" sets off alarm bells, as its narrow philosophy of rights excludes abortion, same-sex marriage, and much more. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
The State Dept's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights & Labor (DLR) already reviews countries' #humanrights records. Critics fear Pompeo's new "natural law" commission will undermine DLR, which for more than FOUR DECADES has been responsible for holding abusive govts to account.
Surprise! Pompeo's new "inalienable rights" task force, which aims to "reexamine" how the State Dept defines human rights, includes commissioners who are on record praising human rights abusers. pbs.org/newshour/world… via @AliRogin h/t @joshrogin
