Vatican Not Persuaded To Sign Ambiguous UN Convention

Although many people around the world assume that initiatives of the UN are always with the good of mankind at heart, increasingly the UN has been pushing vigorously the mandate of the 'Culture of Death'.

ZENIT
...The Holy See will not lend its support to U.N. conventions that hide a defense of abortion and same-sex marriage under a cover of legitimate rights, explained a Holy See representative....

...In regard to the convention on persons with disabilities the prelate said that "while recognizing the importance and urgency of putting many of its aspects into practice, the Holy See abstains from signing it because the text lends support to abortion as a form of so-called reproductive health."

The Holy See delegation worked to bring the convention in line with a true defense of human rights, he said, but without success.

In the negotiation phase, the delegation pointed to the ambiguity of the wording, asking "not that it be deleted but made precise once and for all so that it would exclude abortion from among the possibilities of its interpretation," Archbishop Migliore noted....

... "In dealing with rights that have to do with life and the conduct of persons, communities and peoples," he observed, "discernment foresees that we must ask every time whether demands for the recognition of new rights promote a true good for all and what the relationship is to other rights and with each person's responsibility."...


We need to keep ourselves informed about what is going on in our name. The UN is NOT government. Our governments give the UN its mandate. The end to the 'Culture of Death' starts at home!

This statement "The Holy See will not lend its support to U.N. conventions that hide a defense of abortion and same-sex marriage under a cover of legitimate rights, explained a Holy See representative...." should be assigned to a meeting next week with Nancy Pelosi!
Why has she received a Papal meeting when she favors and promotes abortion, contraception and gay rights?

I guess we'll have to see what comes of it!

I'm sure her Europe mission is to reassure her 'culture of death' allies that she's accomplishing the UN/EU goals at home. Soon we'll all be one big happy family...without kids!
