On November 4, the U.S. State Department announced its updated “2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices” where it slandered the DPRK in the field of public health of women while touching upon the “wrong policies” of other countries taken to ensure women’s sex and reproductive health together with the situation of public health of women.
On the next day, the spokesperson for the U.S. Agency of the International Development vilified and slandered the DPRK for its “human rights” and humanitarian work, reeling off nonsensical talks of defaming our state.
The U.S. launched into the work to criticize us by insulting our women who are loved and respected as “flower of the life” and “flower of the country” and by distorting and fabricating the popular public health policy of our state. It is fair to say that such an action of the U.S. came from its inborn evil way of thinking like a guilty party filing the suit first.
Thanks to the state policy of respecting women and loving women, our women are giving birth to a baby under the special care of the state in Pyongyang Maternity Hospital where the jewel-studded carpet is laid. They not only enjoy the benefits of 8-month maternity leave but also get a free supply of honey and other health promoting medicines during this period.
In the U.S., inhumane crimes of selling and buying even the internal organ of an abortus are committed with impunity. It is really preposterous for the U.S. to criticize other countries for women’s health issues, and it is an insult to the public health of women.
Still vivid in the memories of people is the fact that the U.S. Family Planning Association made a big splash in December, 2015 by making public the crime of using the internal organ of an abortus for commercial purpose.
On October 7, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that 65% are the non-whites among more than 140,000 children who lost their parents due to the COVID-19 form April 2020 to June 2021, and it acknowledged that non-white women are receiving less benefits of the social public health. This speaks volumes about the human rights situation in the U.S.
Recently, it has become disclosed that a two-year-old African American girl, who was reported missing in February 2016, was still not found even after five years, evoking sympathy among the general public.
In relation to this, United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) pointed out that, though the U.S. belongs to one of the richest nations in the world, it has the worst policy for women’s right to a childbirth, noting further that, in the U.S., salary is not paid in case of pregnant and lactating women, not to mention the fact that the maternity leave does not exist at all.
Unless the U.S. discards its bad habit of poking its nose into others’ businesses instead of minding its own business, the miserable human rights situation in the U.S. will be much more serious in the future.
