No surprise there, to those who have been following the goings-on at the UN.
But the forces pressing for international access to abortion, spread by this international body, have launched their latest effort.
Take this pull quote…
On the left, the George Soros-funded Human Rights Watch called it “the first international human rights treaty signed by the United States in nearly a decade” and identified “several other important outstanding treaties” that should be signed and/or ratified, including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
George Soros pushing this (and CEDAW) is a big red flag that the elimination of human beings (of a certain class deemed unworthy of life) is in the language.
This is an informative article. Follow the trail it lays out. And note this especially:
The treaty’s “right to life” Article 10 provision would seem to outlaw not only abortion but using abortion to terminate unborn children with disabilities. The treaty affirms that “every human being has the inherent right to life.” However, Communist China insists that the right to life applies only to those people “who have been born and are now living on this earth” in order to justify its population control and forced abortion programs. This view is shared by the Obama Administration and most European socialist nations.
This is insidiously deceptive.
Jeanne Head, the U.N. representative of the National Right to Life Committee, says this is the first time that pro-abortion language has been included in any “hard law U.N. document” which is binding on those nations which sign and ratify it. As such, ratification would help establish abortion as a fundamental human right not only globally but in the U.S.
At the time of adoption of the document by the U.N. General Assembly, the Vatican declared that “…we opposed the inclusion of such a phrase in this article, because in some countries reproductive health services include abortion, thus denying the inherent right to life of every human being, affirmed by Article 10 of the Convention. It is surely tragic that, wherever fetal defect is a precondition for offering or employing abortion, the same Convention created to protect persons with disabilities from all discrimination in the exercise of their rights, may be used to deny the very basic right to life of disabled unborn persons.”
Hence, in the name of protecting people with disabilities, the treaty would in fact authorize their destruction.
