U.N. Group Calls for Abortion as Human Right for 10-Year-Olds, Decriminalization of Prostitution for Youth


Y-PEER, a youth initiative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), has issued a call to make access to abortion and contraception an international human right for children as young as 10 years old.

The U.N.-affiliated group also issued what U.N. analysts say is a call for the decriminalization of prostitution and drug use, and for “confidentiality” in health-care services for youth.

The “Joint Youth Statement on the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Young People” was released in preparation for the U.N. Youth Conference, which began Wednesday in New York.

“In order to fully recognise young people’s sexual and reproductive rights, especially the right to choose, we must achieve universal access to safe and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health care services, including access to evidence-based comprehensive sexuality education, in formal and non-formal settings,” the document states.

The phrase “reproductive health care services” is shorthand for abortion, which the statement further underscores.

“Young women’s health is threatened by policies and services that do not provide life-saving access to family planning and contraception," the Y-PEER document said. “It is vital to implement key effective measures in the continuum of care for maternal health, including access to safe abortion.”

It further stated: “The rights of marginalized young people, including those who are living with HIV, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, young men who have sex with men, sex workers, injecting drug users, disabled youth, young people in crisis situations and other vulnerable youth continue to be violated through policies and programmes that criminalize them and ignore their specific needs.”

Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., said the statement constitutes an endorsement of prostitution. He also said the statements are shocking, especially because they come from a United Nations-affiliated organization.

"I think the plain implication of this statement is that ‘sex workers,’ which is a euphemism for prostitutes, and injecting drug users should not be criminalized, which means, presumably, that their conduct should not be criminalized,” Sprigg told CNSNews.com. “So, yes, I think this is a statement calling for the legalization of prostitution and drugs, and it’s shocking that any -- you know, that any self-respecting international organizations would endorse that idea."

Paul Rondeau, director of communications for the American Life League, agreed, saying the statement  reveals that the United Nations has a pro-abortion agenda for children.

“The United Nations has become the unsupervised playground and laboratory of the sex-industrial complex,” Rondeau told CNSNews.com.

“Organizations like UNESCO, International Planned Parenthood, and now Y-PEERS demand more sexua/l rights and more abortions as the solutions to more HIV infections and more abortions for the ever-younger victims they pretend to serve," he said.

Y-PEERS did not respond to attempts by CNSNews.com to obtain comment. The organization describes itself as “a network of young people from dozens of countries and hundreds of youth clubs and organizations, with thousands of members around the globe. We work to mobilize youth about issues related to sexual and reproductive health and rights.”

Rondeau said the organization appears to be “one more front group -- wittingly or otherwise -- for sex-based profiteers and cultural revolutionaries posing as concerned global citizens.”

“Within the statement absolutely stuffed with gobbledygook, it calls for disordered sexual behavior, prostitution, and IV drug use to be decriminalized,” he said. “Yet the leading cause of the spread of AIDS is sexual promiscuity followed by sharing needles in IV drug use. So, who benefits from decriminalizing these behaviors:  youth or sexual health agencies, providers, and pharmaceutical companies?”

Tyler Ament, a spokesman for the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), said these statements show that the U.N. is clearly focused on pushing a sexuality agenda instead of focusing on the real problems that youth face.

“The statement says that the U.N.'s youth agenda isn't really focused on the fundamental needs of youth,” he told CNSNews.com. “Most of the youth they focus on are youth in developing countries, and developing countries still don't have good access to water, basic health care, and jobs. Thousands of children die every day because of malaria, and the majority of maternal deaths occur in developing countries. Shouldn't these be higher priority development items than ‘sex rights’?”

Regarding confidentiality for youth, Ament pointed out that 10-year-olds naturally rely on their parents for most things.

“This has been the way to do things since humans have been around,” Ament said. “If non-governmental sex rights groups can convince a 10-year-old that their parents don't really have what it takes to care for their ‘sexual health needs’ and then have the law to back up their manipulation, the negative consequences are many.” 

Rondeau added: “Offering confidentiality to minors not only violates parents’ rights, it protects sex offenders, rapists, molesters, and child sex traffickers.  It also exposes the child to additional exploitation.   This is well documented in the United States where Planned Parenthood has been caught on video ignoring mandatory reporting laws on suspected **** or child abuse and coaching young girls to lie on admission forms.   All this is done under the guise of serving and protecting youth.  Of course, these same girls then come back for contraceptives and abortions all without parental knowledge or law enforcement removing them from high-risk environments.”

United Nations Backs Report Calling Abortion a Human Right

While world attention may be focused on the UN General Assembly as it grapples with Palestinian statehood, the methodical drive by United Nations officials to promote legal abortion internationally goes on largely unnoticed.  During the summer months, when press coverage of UN activities is minimal, the UN Secretariat released a report from the UN Human Rights Council calling on all nations to accept that women and girls must be granted access to legal abortion in order for them to fully enjoy their human rights.

The report, written by UN Special Rapporteur Anand Grover, links abortion on demand with the fundamental right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health. According to Grover, “Criminal laws penalizing and restricting induced abortion are the paradigmatic examples of impermissible barriers to the realization of women’s right to health and must be eliminated.”

Grover goes on to say that legalizing abortion, alone, is not enough for states to avoid violating women’s right to health. States must also actively promote the procedure. “States must take measures to ensure that legal and safe abortion services are available, accessible, and of good quality. Safe abortions, however, will not immediately be available upon decriminalization unless States create conditions under which they may be provided. These conditions include establishing available and accessible clinics; the provision of additional training for physicians and health-care workers; enacting licensing requirements and ensuring the availability of the latest and safest medicines and equipment.”

Grover also claims that women must have access to abortion in order to protect their mental health. According to Grover, “while the psychological impact of seeking an illegal abortion or carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term is well documented, no corresponding evidence supports the existence of long-term mental health sequelae resulting from elective abortion.”

Grover shows concern that women who abuse drugs while pregnant may be charged with child abuse: “In some instances, civil legislation related to child welfare has been expanded to include punitive sanctions for prenatal drug exposure, where such exposure may provide a ground for the termination of parental rights and the removal of the child upon birth. A pregnant woman’s positive toxicology report or clinical signs of drug exposure in newborns, may be regarded as proof of child abuse or neglect under these legislative schemes.” Therefore, Grover calls upon States to “Suspend/abolish the application of existing criminal laws to various forms of conduct during pregnancy, such as conduct related to treatment of the foetus, most notably miscarriage, alcohol and drug consumption and HIV transmission.”

The report begins with a note from UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, stating that he “has the honour” of presenting the report to the UN General Assembly. While such a note follows normal UN protocol, it bears wondering how the UN system can still maintain a stance of official neutrality on abortion in light of the contents of this particular report.

States that recognize the right to life of the unborn may also seek to assert that doing so does not make them violators of their female citizens’ right to health.

U.N. report calls for decriminalizing prostitution

 Thailand and New Zealand sound like the best places for prostitutes in Asia and the South Pacific, because they don’t face the repressive laws that exist in the rest of the region, according to a new U.N. report that calls for the decriminalization of the voluntary sex trade.

The worst countries to be caught possessing a condom while appearing to work as a prostitute include China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.

In those countries, an unused condom can be used as evidence that a person is an illegal sex worker.

Renting bodies for money in Asia also involves niche demographics.

On the Indian subcontinent, for example, so-called “flying” sex workers are people, such as students, who work part time.

Organizations focusing on prostitution, HIV/AIDS and related legal problems discussed these and other issues at a recent meeting in Bangkok, where they discussed the U.N. study “Sex Work and the Law in Asia and the Pacific.”

“Nearly all countries of Asia and the Pacific criminalize some aspects of sex work, … [but] criminalization increases vulnerability to HIV,” said Cherie Hart, a spokeswoman for the U.N. Development Program (UNDP), describing the dangers of contracting the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

The report called for the decriminalization of prostitution because it found “no evidence from countries of Asia and the Pacific” that outlawing the sex trade has prevented HIV epidemics among sex workers and their clients.

The report also called for euphemisms.

“The terms ‘prostitution’ and ‘prostitute’ have negative connotations and are considered by advocates of sex workers to be stigmatizing,” said the 210-page report, authored by Australian human rights lawyer John Godwin.

“The term ‘sex work’ is preferred,” said the report, issued by the UNDP, the U.N. Population Fund, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and several nongovernmental organizations across Asia.

New Zealand and Australia’s New South Wales province are models of how decriminalization of prostitution boosted condom use and slowed the spread of HIV, resulting in “extremely low or nonexistent” transmission of sexual diseases among prostitutes, said the report.

“I would like to be a sex worker in New Zealand,” said Mandeep Dhaliwal, director of the UNDP’s HIV, Health and Development Practice, when asked which countries in Asia were the best places for them to earn a living as a prostitute.

Thailand is also a relatively safe place to be a prostitute. Although prostitution is illegal, authorities usually ignore the sex trade, enabling many upmarket Thai and foreign sex workers to enjoy higher wages, cleaner environments and less hassle compared with elsewhere in Asia, said Chantawipa Apisuk, who directs Empower, a Thai foundation led by prostitutes.

“In Thailand, although it’s illegal, it’s still open, and a lot of people, my friends, are working,” she added.

Considering it's a world issue, then they can do what they want. They already turned their backs on God, so have at it. The biggest voice against such carnal things are the outspoken religious zealots that want to enslave people in the works of the law, and are not speaking about grace.

It's kind of silly for a "religious" group in the world to attempt to hold the population to a standard the world doesn't even believe in. And then they get mad because the heathens want to act up and do all kinds of carnal things?

In the world, people should be able to do what they want. They are already lost, so where is the sin? It's in everything they do already, less they repent, so who cares what they do?

You can't make people stop sinning, by legislation, opinions, or whatever. Nor can you force people to believe something.

UN report: Religious objections to contraception and abortifacients violate human rights

A newly released United Nations Population Fund report calls on governments to counteract “religious” objections to “emergency contraception,” which the report says stand in the way of fundamental human freedoms.

The UNFPA’s 2012 annual report, which declared birth control a “human right,” was released this week.

It states that UN general comments are “the authoritative interpretation of the standards” that “help translate the right to family planning at the abstract…level into policies and programs.”

The committee on Economic Social and Cultural Rights in its General Comment Number 14 ruled that one of the “normative elements” is “acceptability.”

According to the report, “‘duty-bearers’ (governments and others)” have a responsibility to assure that all forms of contraception – including sterilization and abortion-inducing ‘emergency contraception’ – are viewed as acceptable.

“Information and services may exist,” the report states. “But if they are not acceptable for cultural, religious or other reasons, they will not be used.” (Emphasis added.)

In a “case study” in Mexico, the global body “found that married Catholic women…said that modern contraceptives, such as the pill or intrauterine devices, were against their religious beliefs and were therefore unacceptable to them.”

The report makes clear it includes “emergency contraception,” such as Plan B and Ella, as among basic human rights.

Although the report claims emergency contraception “does not cause abortion,” two sentences earlier the report states: “A single emergency contraceptive pill, when taken within up to five days after unprotected intercourse, prevents a fertilized egg from implanting.” 

The IUD also acts as an abortifacient. 

Without such services, Mexico’s faithful Catholic women had to wait until “after their reproductive years” to “have the ‘possibility of enjoying sexual intimacy free from the worry of an unintended or unwanted pregnancy,’” the report stated.

The world body declares it will support those who combat views that make contraception, including aboriton-including drugs, unacceptable. “UNFPA commits in particular to…supporting both men and women to transform gender attitudes and cultural barriers that impede access to and use of family planning,” it states.

Many believe the declaration of such “birth control” measures is intended to pave the way for a global approval of abortion-on-demand.

“What is to stop the UNFPA from declaring that abortion is a ‘basic human right’?” Brian Clowes of Human Life International asked in a statement e-mailed to LifeSiteNews.com.

The UNFPA report states, “The right to family planning is also a gateway to the achievement of other rights.”

France Tells United Nations Abortion Should be an International Human Right

France claimed abortion is a right under international humanitarian law at the U.N. Security Council last week even though the claim is widely viewed as far-fetched and inappropriate.

Abortion groups claim the Geneva Convention includes a right to abortion for victims of **** in situations of conflict. France, Israel, Lithuania and Estonia lent their support to these groups at the debate on Friday.

The “refusal of abortion is a violation of international humanitarian law,” said Gérard Araud, France’s ambassador to the United Nations. He explained that this was an “especially dear” issue for France. A diplomat speaking for Israel lamented women giving birth to children conceived in ****. Few countries are on board though.

Prior to 2013, mentioning abortion in the Council chamber was unheard of. Countries instead focus on ending impunity and other preventive measures, as well as ending discrimination against victims of **** and their children.

A diplomat involved in the Security Council debate told the Friday Fax that abortion supporters raise the issue “where it just does not belong.” The Geneva Convention and its protocols have never been understood to include such a right. And there is no support within the United Nations framework to claim a right to abortion under any circumstance.

No U.N. treaty mentions abortion or can be fairly read as including abortion rights. The consensus among U.N. member states is that abortion is a domestic matter that should be left up to national legislation. The U.N. Charter forbids the United Nations to compel action by states except when the Security Council imposes sanctions or intervenes in conflict situations.

Last year the Security Council adopted a resolution that mentions sexual and reproductive health as part of humanitarian responses and another that mentions unwanted pregnancies. The U.N. Population Fund and abortion groups have interpreted the resolutions as mandating abortion as a humanitarian response. This year’s debate appeared to take a step back from the contentious interpretation.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon lent his support to abortion as a humanitarian response last spring. He said it should be an “integral component” of humanitarian interventions, repeating as much in a report later in the summer. But this year he backtracked.

In the report prepared by the secretariat ahead of Friday’s debate, abortion is no longer essential. The issue of children conceived in **** requires “further research and information,” it states.

Ban Ki-moon presented his report to the Council while a visibly pregnant woman at an advanced stage of gestation sat in the seat immediately behind him. He did not mention abortion or commonly used euphemisms like sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights in his statement and his special envoy on sexual violence in conflict was equally silent about abortion.

The toned down approach reflects the reality of lack of consensus on this issue.

While abortion groups have been insisting in recent times for abortion to be part of humanitarian responses, humanitarian groups have not made that request. Abortion is likely to be unsafe if carried out in conflict situations where basic sanitation, health infrastructure and access to medicines are not good. And U.S. law actually prohibits foreign assistance from being used for abortions or abortion advocacy.

A 2011 U.N. report surveyed victims of **** in war torn areas and detailed their stated needs. They included security from violence, health, education, job education, social acceptance and other basic needs for both themselves and their children conceived in ****. The victims did not ask for abortion or sexual and reproductive health services.

Will the UN Criminalize the Pro-Life Movement as 'Torture'?

Last week, questioners on the United Nations Committee Against Torture called pro-life speech “torture.”

This move is part of a broader push by the radical abortion lobby to essentially criminalize the pro-life movement.

The Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), an extremist international abortion syndicate that is spearheading the anti-life push, sent a letter last month to the U.N. body on torture claiming that church leaders in the pro-life movement have “perpetuated torture” by taking a stand against abortion.

In a deadly irony, an organization that promotes the indiscriminant slaughter of defenseless babies is urging the U.N. to view those who promote life as committing torture.

While specifically aimed at the Catholic Church, the vile assertions could affect all Christians and the pro-life movement as a whole. The abortion lobby specifically alleges that church leaders have “contributed to torture and ill-treatment perpetuated by other states by negatively interfering with the development of state policy on abortion, in violation of its obligations under Articles 1, 2, and 16.”

In other words, they are claiming that anyone, especially Christians, who promotes pro-life policies is guilty of “torture” under the U.N. Convention Against Torture.

Article I of that international treaty provides:

"For the purposes of this Convention, the term 'torture' means any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him or a third person information or a confession, punishing him for an act he or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed, or intimidating or coercing him or a third person, or for any reason based on discrimination of any kind, when such pain or suffering is inflicted by or at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity."

If anything, that sounds like more of a fitting description of committing abortion—the killing of an innocent unborn human being. We should be preventing abortion, not labeling those who promote life as torturers.

There is nothing humane about the process of abortion (described in painstaking detail by the Supreme Court itself).

If anyone is promoting torture, it’s not the church; it’s the abortion industry. But in this backward world where up is down and down is up, abortion is a “fundamental human right” and pro-life speech is promoting “torture.”

The worse part is that members of the U.N. Committee Against Torture seem to be going right along with the extremist abortion position. In fact, according to reports, the U.N. committee’s “Vice Chairperson Felice Gaer, an American, ... repeated verbatim some language that had been in a letter the CRR had sent to the committee on April 11.”

The reality is this isn’t just a U.N. matter. If pro-abortion radicals are successful in getting pro-life speech and legislation labeled “torture” in international law, don’t be fooled. It will trickle its way into U.S. courts.

The Center for Reproductive Rights is already preparing for a constitutional showdown, asserting that “religious freedom does not trump” its redefinition of torture.

If the pro-life movement is silent now, it may be silenced permanently.

At the American Center for Law and Justice, we’re working directly at the U.N. to fight back against this outrage. Not only would it negatively impact our pro-life work here in the U.S., but it would also be a major setback for our numerous affiliated organizations worldwide.

We’re fighting back, but the U.N. must hear from the pro-life community loud and clear. We won’t stand idly by and allow these defamatory and dangerous assertions to go unchallenged. Join us at the U.N. by signing our petition to stop the U.N. from criminalizing the pro-life movement.

UN Calls Catholic Pro-Life Stance Torture

 In a novel attack on pro-life groups and nations, the United Nations has accused the Roman Catholic Church of torture for advocating against abortion.

Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), said Western powers for years have tried to use the UN to force a liberal social agenda on conservative nations. The Vatican has signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention Against Torture. During reports to those committees in the last 90 days, the UN tried to further press the Vatican to change its teaching.

“Committees have started trying to rewrite treaties and add new language, which they don’t have a right to do, and try to foist these new obligations on the governments that have already ratified the treaties,” Ruse said.

The children’s rights committee in February told the Vatican to change its teaching on abortion and homosexuality, including the practice of excommunicating abortionists. On May 5, the torture committee accused the Vatican of torture in both its pro-life views and its handling of child sexual abuse by priests. The committee’s theory is that by advocating against abortion, especially for women who are younger or victims of crimes, the Church is committing a form of psychological torture.

“This is a violation of freedom of religion,” Ruse said. And Archbishop Silvano Tomasi told the UN as much. Abortion itself is a form of torture, he said, accusing the United Kingdom and Canada directly for their practice of late-term abortion. Other voices have added to those remarks to create a movement. European Centre for Law and Justice Director Grégor Puppinck and other pro-life activists said 622 babies in Canada from 2000-2011—and 66 in the United Kingdom in 2005 alone—died after botched abortions resulted in live births.

Committees cannot create binding resolutions, and “don’t really have any authority,” Ruse said. The American Center for Law and Justice said the torture committee “could begin an international legal process that would cause the UN to review statements or actions by pro-life public officials.” But ultimately, the torture committee’s power is slim.

That’s a victory for the pro-life community, according to C-FAM. Yes, the UN climate chief also lectured religious groups to teach their followers to accept the UN’s climate change position. Yes, the UN used battles against HIV and AIDS to intimidate African nations into abandoning teachings on abstinence, monogamy, and fidelity.

But despite the ongoing efforts to promote abortion and twist past resolutions to manufacture rights, C-FAM said, pro-abortion activists have failed to gain traction toward a binding international right to abortion. They don’t have the enough countries on their side. “Our opponents on this issue have tried for 20 years to get an international right to abortion, and they have failed,” Ruse said. “Repeatedly.”

Not just abortion but being against SODOMY also. If you commit torture, well you must be a terrorist. That is the next step. This just isnt against the RCC. This is against all who believe these stances. This is all so these sick people can have sex with children world wide.
