U.S. refuses to join U.N. pact on women's rights

The Associated Press reports:

"The United States has refused to join 85 other heads of state and government in signing a statement that endorsed a 10-year-old U.N. plan to ensure every woman's right to education, health care and choice about having children.

President Bush's administration withheld its signature because the statement included a reference to 'sexual rights.'"
