UNITED FAMILIES INTERNATIONAL TO CELEBRATE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, SUBMIT 300,000 NAMES TO UN IN FAVOR OF LIFE AND FAMILIES

UNITED FAMILIES INTERNATIONAL TO CELEBRATE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, SUBMIT 300,000 NAMES TO UN IN FAVOR OF LIFE AND FAMILIES

 

ufilogoUN Headquarters, New York – Tomorrow, December 10th, on the 60th Anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNDHR) by the UN General Assembly, United Families International (UFI), along with a coalition of social conservative groups from around the world, will present a petition of 340,000 names requesting that all member nations and states interpret the UNDHR to mean that:

The right to life, liberty and security is for every person; that each child born or unborn, has the right to birth and a full, natural life. That a child has the right to a mother and a father, of full age, within the bonds of marriage defined as between a man and a woman.  And, that the parents have the right to raise and educate their children without any limitation due to race, religion, culture or nationality.  

The petition is a response to opposition petition efforts by pro-abortion groups International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International that demand that the UNDHR be interpreted to include that access to abortion is a human right and the UNDHR should be interpreted as such.

“During a time when family values are under attack in nations and states across the globe, tomorrow should be a celebration of the family, freedom of religion, and marriage between a man and a woman.  Tomorrow should be a declaration that 60 years ago the United Nations stood up for what is most important.  Tomorrow we should all feel safe that life, our families, marriages and religions will be protected because of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”  Said Beverly Rice, President of UFI, a non-profit organization that has been fighting to protect the family at the UN since 1978. “But, instead, we fear tomorrow will just be another day on the battlefield, another day when those who wish to destroy the family will make another attempt.  They will use deception as their weapon.  Their desire is to create a genderless society that is run by the state – void of religion, marriage and parents.”

UFI, along with a Pro-Family Pro-Life coalition including the Pro-Life Federation of Poland, the Institute of Family Policy of Spain, Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, and US-based Concerned Women for America will present the petition at UN headquarters and in private meetings with Ambassadors from several UN missions.

Those who wish to join the celebration of the family as the fundamental unit of society and of the right to life may continue to sign the petition after tomorrow at unitedfamilies.org.

    The United Nations are crazy.

    On one hand they want to inflict abortion and contraception upon the world and then turn around and say that there are not enough young people in the world.

    “Last year the United Nations released its global population estimates, revealing an alarming population shift that will have serious worldwide consequences within the near future. The blame lies on the rapid spread of abortion, contraception and sterilization in the past century.”

    Please protect the unborn, but very much human. Everyone has the RIGHT to life. The right to choose their own life, not have that choice made for them.
