UN: Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women

Current status: please sign the petition, here, to ask the US Senate not to ratify this treaty, which gives power to one of the most anti-family and anti-life organs of the United Nations. The actions of the United States in this matter have implications for countries across the globe.

From Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute: The CEDAW Committee, before which signatory countries must appear every four years, regularly coerces and bullies nations into changing their laws far beyond the scope of the treaty itself.

CEDAW is silent on abortion yet many countries have been ordered by the CEDAW Committee to legalize abortion. CEDAW actually condemns prostitution, but countries have been directed by the Committee to legalize prostitution. The CEDAW Committee went so far as to criticize the country of Belarus for establishing Mother’s Day, what the Committee referred to as a “negative cultural stereotype.” The CEDAW Committee is hostile to organized religion. It ordered Libya to reinterpret the Koran to fall within Committee guidelines. It criticized Ireland for allowing the Church to participate in public policy discourse.
CEDAW may have been conceived with good intentions, but it has been hijacked by radicals bent on using it for dangerous social experiments that are harmful to our countries, our families, our mothers, wives and daughters.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
