Beijing Declaration and ICPD do not include new rights, US Administration confirms

25-american-flag-les-cunliffeThe UN Human Rights Council has adopted a resolution  on the elimination of discrimination against women and girls. While there is general consensus that women and girls should not be discriminated against, the problem with such resolutions is that abortion advocates, or governments influenced by them, habitually try to use them as an occasion to promote the notion that legalizing the slaughter of unborn children is a requirement deriving from that consensus. In that context, it is long-awaited good news that the US, which under the Obama Administration was the most aggressive abortion promoter world-wide, has changed its position.  Continue reading

US: employers no longer obliged to pay for their employees’ “birth control”

President Trump signs the Executive Order on Promoting FreeUnder President Trump, sanity and justice seem to slowly return into US politics.

Following up on a pledge by President Trump made during his election campaign, federal officials have drafted a provision contained in former President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act” (aka “Obamacare”) that required employers to provide so-called “birth control” coverage in health insurance plans. The provision, which cynically defined contraception (including some methods that objectively must be qualified as chemical abortion) as part of “health care” and thus obliged employers to pay for (some of) their employee’s questionable lifestyle choices, was one of the most controversial in Obama administration policies adopted under the Affordable Care Act, and it generated scores of lawsuits by employers that had conscientious objections to it.

US House endorses bill to replace controversial “Obamacare”

obamacareWith 217-213 votes the House passed a health care bill on Thursday that would repeal and replace major parts of fomer US President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act”. While there is broad consensus in the US on the objective of making health care more affordable, Obamacare was highly controversial because it used “health care” as a pretext for promoting abortion and contraception, making it an obligation for employers, including even faith-based institutions whose professed ethics prohibit such abominations, to finance both.

Today’s vote is an important step forward towards the restoration of liberty of conscience, and a severe blow to the abortion industry. However, the bill still needs to pass a vote in the Senate.

Ireland: “Citizens’ Assembly” makes radical proposals to legalize baby-slaughtering

the_rock_of_cashel_ireland_europe-t2Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny is coming closer to his objective of destroying the moral texture of Irish society. Two years after the constitutional referendum that re-defined marriage as a union of “two persons” (thus opening it to the absurd notion of a “marriage” between persons of the same sex), his next target is the abolition of the constitutional protections for the right to life of the weakest and most helpless members of society, unborn children.

CoE´s “Human Rights Commissioner” wants Ireland to cancel unborn children´s right to life

The Council of Europe’s “Human Rights Commissioner” Nils Muižnieks (a former director of the Soros Foundation) has claimed that Ireland’s 2013 Abortion Act is still too restrictive and has a “chilling” effect on doctors who must decide who meets its requirements.

Mr Muižnieks made his criticisms of Ireland’s abortion law in a report covering a range of human rights issues in Ireland. Continue reading
