‘This is your Nuremberg moment’: Amal Clooney urges UN to adopt sexual violence resolution

‘You owe it to the thousands of women and girls who must watch ISIS members shave off their beards and go back to their normal lives while they the victims never can’, said human right lawyer Amal Clooney, who was representing Yazidi survivors of sexual violence. She challenged the UN security council members to vote in favor of a resolution against sexual violence in conflict. The resolution passed but only after the Trump administration threatened to veto the document over references to reproductive health. The US said such language implies support for abortions.
