SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The Trump administration signed an anti-abortion declaration Thursday, joining 30 other largely authoritarian countries and pushing its domestic and foreign policy in a more conservative direction. 

The nonbinding Geneva Consensus Declaration calls for the promotion of women's health but pushes back on the idea that abortion is a human right. 

Some countries that joined include Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Belarus — places notorious for suppressing the rights of women.
