Holy See's Objection to UN Convention on Disabled

The Vatican continued to stand up for the disabled and the unborn yesterday by refusing to sign the UN's Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities because of its guarantee of the "right" of abortion, which is often offered to pregnant women if their unborn child is found to have a disability prior to birth.

Archbishop Celestino Migliore, papal nuncio and permanent observer of the Holy See to the United Nations said, "It is surely tragic that, wherever fetal defect is a precondition for offering or employing abortion, the same convention created to protect persons with disabilities from all discrimination in the exercise of their rights, may be used to deny the very basic right to life of disabled unborn persons."

The UN is sold to the devil. In the past I used to buy their Christmas cards but not anymore since I know about the culture-of- death agenda that they are trying to push down the throat of all the countries in the world especially those still considering abortion an evil due to their good Catholic tradition.

The idea of a UN makes sense to us as long as the group in question agrees with our value system. When it beging to turn aside from our values, and force their values on us, that is when it becomes problematic.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
