Note This! UN -- Women's Rights -- or Wrongs? -- Appropriate Moral Authority? -- & Petition

U.N. Wrong Forum for Women's Rights March 02, 2005, Wendy McElroy

The shadows of children allegedly raped by United Nations peacekeepers in the Congo and the women allegedly molested by a top U.N. official fall across the 49th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women

From this past Monday to March 11, the U.N. will meet in New York City to review global progress on the "women’s human rights agreement" known as the Beijing Platform (1995). [UN Beijing Declaration and Platform for Women -- "women’s human rights agreement" ]

[. . . . ] But if abortion is center stage, a more fundamental question still remains: By what moral standard is the U.N. a proper stage on which to negotiate women’s rights? How much blood and corruption has to splatter before the U.N.’s moral authority is washed away?

Its credibility on human rights has been broken beyond repair by the oil-for-food scandal that, as FOX News series stated, "ended up with Saddam Hussein pocketing billions to become the biggest graft-generating machine" in history [. . . . ]


Mention is also made in the article of the COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN (CSW)




Watch for UN's upcoming Conference on Women -- "documents and agreements reached at these conferences become part of international law, norms and standards" -- UN "Moral Authority" so loved by our PM

"UN Ambassadors need to hear from people everywhere that the world does not want the UN to become embroiled in unproductive controversial negotiations over homosexual and abortion rights at the upcoming conference on women."


Help Defend Family, Marriage and the Unborn at the UN! -- Urgent Action Alert! February 26, 2005

This is from a letter sent by those who wish to protect the family. This is important because what is decided at these UN talking fests comes back to haunt the rest who were at home, too busy looking after their families to notice. Pay attention. You may link to the above site to sign the petition.

[. . . . ] UN Ambassadors need to hear from people everywhere that the world does not want the UN to become embroiled in unproductive controversial negotiations over homosexual and abortion rights at the upcoming conference on women. [Go to the site for additional information]

Through our website you can easily send a pre-written email to 129 key UN ambassadors with only a single mouse click. These ambassadors have either supported pro-family provisions in the past or have not yet declared a position on these issues. Just click here to make a critical difference in this battle.

What happens at the UN can have a direct and negative impact on our efforts to protect marriage, the family and children in our own countries! This is because the documents and agreements reached at these conferences become part of international law, norms and standards that shape and influence national laws and policies worldwide.

The anti-family, anti-children forces understand this, which is why they are constantly working to slip things into these international documents and agreements that will help achieve their goals at the national level. They count on the fact that most people who are dedicated to defending marriage, the family and children in their own countries do not understand the power of international consensus documents.

But you have helped us stop them before!

For example, in just the past year, United Families International supporters like you flooded key UN missions with emails that helped us to successfully defeat the “sexual orientation” human rights provision at the Human Rights Commission. Your emails also helped to achieve recognition of the Doha Declaration on the Family by the UN General Assembly.

Please help us do it again! [. . . . ]


Think Kyoto accord and the impact that is going to have in Canada. It's the same with other agreements that come out of the UN.
