11 Oct Petition on the Right to Life in International Law
We’re in the last few days of collecting signatures to present to a United Nations body that is setting up to issue legal commentary on an international treaty that excludes unborn children from a “right to life.”
United Families International has joined with other groups to collect signatures that are going to be presented to these UN bureaucrats, very soon, urging them to not to recommend language which has the potential to create an international right to abortion.
You can help! Go to this link and add your voice to over 85,000 other citizens around the world who are standing up for the unborn. The goal is to gather 100,000 names on the petition and we’re getting close. Help us push it over the mark by clicking here and adding your name.
United Families has also submitted a statement directly to the Human Rights Committee – the group that is drafting General Comment 36 on Article 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. (How’s that for a mouthful!) Again, the Human Rights Committee “experts” have been charged with giving guidance on many aspects of the “right to life.”
Part of the draft language recommends the legalization of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide (PAS). As there are a number of pro-life groups submitting statements to the HRC speaking to the crucial and inalienable rights of the unborn, UFI made the decision to address the fallacies and dangers associated with euthanasia and PAS. We share that statement with you, below.
Lastly, in a statement submitted by the country of Denmark to the above mentioned HRC drafting committee, Denmark objects to the usage of the term “pregnant woman” stating it “exclude[s] transgender people who have given birth” (i.e., women who feel they are men who give birth). It seems surreal that Denmark would be so concerned about the feelings of those who label themselves as transgender, but would openly advocate for ending the life of an unborn child through abortion. You can find Denmark’s statement by clicking here and scrolling down toward the bottom of the page.
United Families International fully supports pregnant women and their unborn children! We dedicate significant amounts of effort to doing so. We hope you’ll join us and you can start right now by signing the petition supporting unborn children’s right to life.
