Radical social engineering is being pushed at the World Health Organisation (WHO)

Last week Pat Buckley represented SPUC at the World Health Assembly at the World Health Organisation (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland. Two resolutions of most concern to SPUC were on HIV and on youth. Both resolutions reflect the radical social engineering which the anti-life and anti-family lobby is seeking to impose upon the world via the international system. The aim of this engineering is not just permission for the unlimited practice of abortion, contraception and homosexuality*, but also the creation of an international legal framework in which even criticism of such practices will be prohibited. Pat's work for SPUC in conjunction with other pro-life/pro-family groups was able to help blunt somewhat the extreme nature of the resolution on youth; though sadly this good result was not repeated regarding the resolution on HIV. These resolutions will now be the basis of WHO's contribution to high-level UN conferences over the summer. We must pray that Pat, Peter Smith and SPUC's partners lobbying at the international institutions will be strengthened to blunt further these attacks upon life and family.

Below are some very helpful insights by our colleagues at Family Watch International, in the context of the HIV resolution:
"[N]ote that 'gender equality' as defined by sexual rights activists does not just mean equality between men and women it also means equal rights for heterosexuals, transgenders, lesbians, bisexuals, male, homosexuals, cross dressers, etc.

[T]ransgenders, prostitutes (using the euphemism of 'sex workers'), and homosexuals -calling themselves 'sexual minorities' and/or 'vulnerable groups' or 'key populations' - [have] demanded that their sexually promiscuous lifestyles be not only accepted but also respected and promoted by laws and programs and with UN funding. They demanded that funds addressing the HIV/AIDS pandemic be prioritized to support their advocacy groups.

It is a travesty that groups that engage in the highest risk sexual behaviors for HIV have managed to convince many to call for a 'human rights' approach to HIV/AIDS prevention which in reality is an aggressive campaign to destigmatize these risky behaviors under the guise of HIV prevention.

The 'International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights' which is supported by and created by UNAIDS and other UN agencies actually calls for the legalization of same–sex marriage, prostitution, and penalties for people that criticize the homosexual lifestyle and also calls for graphic sexuality education for children without parental consent all under the guise of HIV/AIDS prevention.

[T]here is no 'human right' to engage in risky sexual behavior that endangers sexual partners, yet sexual rights activists have managed to exploit the AIDS pandemic to demand such fictitious rights and they are gaining more and more support for this so-called 'human rights' approach to AIDS.

If we are to save more lives and prevent the indoctrination of future generations through corrupted 'human rights education and learning' and 'comprehensive sexuality education' that teaches youth they have a right to 'sexual pleasure' and to express different 'sexual identities' among other things, especially in areas with high HIV prevalence rates, we must push back against this agenda.

Fortunately there is plenty of good science and research on our side, the problem is most people are unaware that the evidence shows that the sexual rights approach to HIV/AIDS actually spreads AIDS rather than curbs it."
* The late Pope John Paul II, the great pro-life champion, taught in paragraph 97 of his 1995 encyclical Evangelium Vitae that it is an illusion to think that we can build a true culture of human life if we do not offer adolescents and young adults an authentic education in sexuality, and in love, and the whole of life according to their true meaning and in their close interconnection.
