CWN Editor's Note: “It’s a sad commentary on our times that more than 70 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, gross violations continue throughout the world, sometimes even in the name of human rights,” said Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, as he announced the formation of the commission, chaired by Professor Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard Law School. Glendon, 80, is former US ambassador to the Holy See and former president of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.
