UN agency lies to support forced abortions

Briefing. Note that the Bush administration is acting as almost the only brake on the anti-life tendencies of the UN.

From SPUC: President Bush has withheld funding from the United Nations Population
Fund (UNFPA) for the sixth year running because it continues to support
forced abortions and sterilisations. Mr Bush's decision was based on research by the Population Research Institute between 1998 and 2001, which
found that there were violations in UNFPA's work in several countries
including China, Peru and Pakistan. [CNA on EWTN, 13 September] The US
delegation to the United Nations has rebuked the executive director of
UNFPA for claiming that there is a UN global goal related to "sexual and
reproductive health". While presenting UNFPA's strategic plan and its
proposed global and regional programs, Ms Thoraya Obaid referred to "the
target on universal access to reproductive health under Millennium
Development Goal (MDG) 5." The US representative told her that there is no
global target on reproductive health and that only a resolution of the
General Assembly could generate one. Ms Obaid later claimed that UNFPA
held a neutral position on the legalisation and promotion of abortion.

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
