New York, NY ( -- At United Nations (UN) headquarters this week, the Obama administration continued its push for ever increasing access to legal abortion around the world. The Obama team has introduced language that has thrown a high level negotiation into a roil.

The U.S. proposal calls for “universal access” to “sexual and reproductive health services including universal access to family planning.”

The document under consideration will culminate in the 2009 Annual Ministerial Review, which convenes next week in Geneva. Full story here.
