WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senators Steve Daines (Mont.) and James Lankford (Okla.) today introduced a Senate resolution to celebrate the second anniversary of the signing of the Geneva Consensus Declaration and urging that the United States once again be added as a signatory to the coalition of now 36 countries making a shared commitment to defending life, the family, and national sovereignty.
“The Geneva Consensus Declaration is not just a piece of paper—it’s a family of nations anchored in the universal principles of life, family and national sovereignty,” Daines said. “President Biden’s withdrawal from the Declaration did not mark the end of the American commitment to protecting life and family. Instead, President Biden should reverse this decision and have the United States rejoin the Declaration. Protecting the most vulnerable among us is an all-hands-on-deck battle and together we can work towards a future that recognizes the dignity of every life, everywhere.”
“Oklahomans know that every life is precious, and signing onto the Geneva Consensus Declaration Resolution signifies that the US supports promoting women’s health and strengthening families. It is embarrassing that the United States would surrender it’s moral leadership on the international stage, but this resolution affirms the United States’ commitment to protect life and uphold families,” Lankford said.
