This vote made by the U.S. supports the persecution of the LGBTQ+ community and reflects homophobic beliefs. It is necessary to take actions that continue to protect underrepresented groups, and votes should not be made based on other policies when individuals’ lives are at stake. The U.S. cannot proudly wave a rainbow flag when, according to our government, homosexuality qualifies for the death penalty.

The United States voted in opposition of the United Nations’ resolution on Sept. 29 condemning the death penalty as a punishment for same-sex relations. This decision to vote essentially in favor of the death penalty as a consequence for homosexual relations is detrimental for the U.S.’s progressionSource: U.N. vote contradicts established U.S. values by supporting death penalty for gay relationships
