UN ratchets up campaign to impose abortion worldwide

Anand Grover
Pat Buckley, one of SPUC's representatives at the United Nations (UN), blogged yesterday about the debate on a new UN report which demands that every country in the world removes all legal and practical restrictions on abortion and contraception. This report was presented by Anand Grover (pictured), the UN special rapporteur on health, at the UN in New York on Monday. Do read Pat's blog-post in full. Fr Bene, the Holy See's representative, spoke out strongly against one of the report's most sinister aspects. He said:
"The proposal of the Special Rapporteur to circumvent spousal and/or parental consent for the implementation of contraceptive and sterilizing techniques stands in stark contravention of the very nature of marriage and parenthood."
