    Redefining Human Rights

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/...hts-commission

    The Trump administration said Monday that it will review the role of human rights in American foreign policy, appointing a commission expected to elevate concerns about religious freedom and abortion.
    So much of this administration's actions enrage me. As an atheist with female reproductive organs? This is duct tape over my mouth. (And I know I'm not the first one to experience this, but yeah.)

    My kid is 15. Feeling pretty strongly she's not safe in this country.

    ETA this gem:

    The commission will be chaired by Harvard Law School professor Mary Ann Glendon, a former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. A conservative scholar and author, Glendon turned down an honor from Notre Dame the year President Barack Obama was scheduled to deliver a commencement address over his support for abortion rights.
