Abortionist Appointed to UN Position on Health

The president of the Human Rights Council announced the appointment of Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng from South Africa as the new UN Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health. Holders of the position in the past have promoted abortion as necessary for the enjoyment of health.
The appointment of a leading abortionist, who is also an abortion activist, as the new UN Special Rapporteur on health takes the UN to a new low in allowing radical pro-abortion activists to hold key positions that monitor and oversee policies regarding countries' access to abortion. Such actions take place relentlessly while Member States continue to voice objections to UN promotion or abortion/reproductive health or rights during negotiations.
This appointment excels in extremism as pro-abortion organizations celebrate appointment of one of their own, Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng of South Africa, who has an extraordinarily radical pro-abortion and pro-sex work resume:
-Serves on the board of the Safe Abortion Action Fund
-Serves on the Global Advisory Board for Sexual Health and Wellbeing, self-described as "an independent group that has come together in recognition of the lack of equal attention to sexual health, sexual rights and sexual pleasure in research, education, training, policies and programmes regarding sexuality."
-Serves as co-lead for Global Doctors for Choice, South Africa which states that she "delivered a briefing to the U.S Senate on the impact of U.S foreign policy and the Global Gag Rule"; delivered "a keynote address at Population Action Fund on Capitol Hill during Advocacy Week"; and gave "the first ever civil society statement on behalf of 286 global organizations to the Human Rights Council in Geneva for action to ensure safe and legal abortion access globally."
In her application, Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng listed her abortion credentials and also stated that "in 2017, I presented the first ever civil society statement at the 36th Regular session at the Human Rights Council on using human rights standard for access to safe abortion care."
IPPF issued a congratulatory statement:
"The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) warmly welcomes the appointment of Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng...
"Dr T, as she is known, is a South African doctor, women's rights and sexual and reproductive health activist, and the author of the bestseller 'Dr T: A Guide to Sexual Health and Pleasure'.  She is a long-time and powerful advocate for women's rights and has repeatedly highlighted the importance of access to safe abortion as part of comprehensive sexual and reproductive healthcare."
The Safe Abortion Action Fund could not contain its enthusiasm writing
"A long-time and powerful advocate for women's rights, Dr Mofokeng has repeatedly highlighted the importance of access to safe abortion as part of comprehensive sexual and reproductive healthcare."
"As a member of the SAAF Board Dr Mofokeng has been actively involved in providing direct expertise on how we can be more effective in our mandate to work towards a world where the right to safe and legal abortion is established and protected, women and others are empowered to exercise these rights and lives are saved."
Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng explains her vision of the new role writing in her application, "In my role as the Special Rapporteur...I would be dedicated to monitoring the states commitments to the obligations to respect, protect and fulfil the right to health."
Pro-life countries need to be aware of her abortion extremism.
