Melanne Verveer, an abortion advocate who served as chief of staff to former First Lady Hillary Clinton, will occupy the new post.
Her role as the new Obama ambassador to women abroad? Promote abortion and overturn pro-life laws in nations across the world.
Verveer was nominated to the post based on her close ties to Clinton and her experience as co-founder of Vital Voices Global Leadership. She will hold the rank of Ambassador-at-Large.
Verveer founded Vital Voices with assistance from pro-abortion former UN ambassador Madeline Albright to reaffirm the population and development goals of the United Nations conference in Beijing in 1995.
In 2005, while marking the ten year anniversary of Beijing, then-Senator Clinton applauded the role of Verveer's group and talked about the kind of measures needed to advance the interests of women. Clinton placed advancing abortion in third-world nations at the top of the list.
