The 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
The United Nations Human Rights Council has adopted a resolution on the protection of the family and its role in the protection and promotion of the rights of older persons, by a recorded vote of 30 Member States in favour, 12 against, and 5 abstentions. A number of hostile amendments submitted by Malta on behalf of the European Union and by Switzerland, seeking both to replace recognition of the family as an institution with “families” (including in the title) and to recognise the existence of “various forms of the family,” were defeated, prompting EU members, the United States, the United Kingdom, and a number of Latin American countries to vote against the resolution.

In this week’s edition of Politico.eu, there is an interesting article on the influence exerted by Microsoft founder Bill Gates over the World Health Organization (WHO). In it we read:
Over the past decade, the world’s richest man has become the World Health Organization’s second biggest donor, second only to the United States and just above the United Kingdom. This largesse gives him outsized influence over its agenda, one that could grow as the U.S. and the U.K. threaten to cut funding … The result, say his critics, is that Gates’ priorities have become the WHO’s. … The Gates Foundation has pumped more than $2.4 billion into the WHO since 2000, as countries have grown reluctant to put more of their own money into the agency, especially after the 2008 global financial crisis.

ILGA Europe, the sodomy-and-gender-perversion lobby lavishly funded by the European Commission and George Soros, has released a report that explains how the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism is used at the UN to promote new “LGBT rights” that actually have never been internationally recognized and therefore have no basis in international law. Continue reading
Thanks to the outcome of last year’s presidential elections the US, which under President Obama was the most radical supporter of baby-slaughtering, is now taking a clear stance in favour of comprehensively protecting human rights, including the right to life, at the United Nations. This suddenly leaves the European Union rather isolated in its absurd attempt to get the deliberate murdering of unborn children recognized as a “women’s right”.

8 March, the so-called “International Women’s Day”, was first celebrated in the Soviet Union thanks to V. I. Lenin and his People’s Commissioner for Social Welfare, Alexandra Kollontai. It was also under Lenin and Kollontai that the Soviet Union became the first country to legalize the murdering of un-born children, and to abolish the institution of marriage (which, however, was re-introduced soon afterwards). Nowadays, it is institutions like the UN and the EU who force this Communist holiday on citizens.
The UN today issued a statement by “Women’s Human Rights Experts”, which laments the fact that some countries still dare to protect the human right to life as from the time of conception. Continue reading
As the Friday Fax reports, the new UN Special Rapporteur on alleged “discriminations” of people with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) disorders, Vitit Muntarbhorn, has outlined a strategy for his three-year term before dozens of supportive UN bureaucrats, delegates, and activists in a meeting last week.
Participation in the consultation was limited to States and NGOs supportive of the LGBT agenda. Others who had opposed the creation of the controversial Rapporteur’s post did not want to legitimize his agenda by attending the event. The outcome of the meeting cannot therefore be described as representing a wide consensus, even if the UN bureaucracy may have wanted to make it look that way.
Muntarbhorn described education as an entry point for children to be “born and bred from a young age” with the right attitudes. Continue reading
