UN Gets Wings Clipped

The United Nations has long been an effective tool of international pro-abortion activists. The UN has even threatened to withhold desperately needed funds from poorer pro-life countries unless they change their abortion laws. Recently, African nations and the small island state of Saint Lucia pushed back—and won. They attached three resolutions to efforts promoting sex education and reproductive health for young children. “Reproductive health” is code word for abortion. The pro-life nations added amendments requiring “appropriate direction and guidance from parents and legal guardians.” A common UN approach is to promote sex outside of marriage and abortion without the parents being involved. It’s good to see the UN get its wings clipped when pushing an extreme agenda.
