Just Wow: UN Denounces The Vatican’s Pro-Life Policies

With all of the horrific human rights violations going on throughout the world, right now – political prisoners, genocidal attacks on Christians, etc — this is what the UN Human rights Council focuses on.

The bulk of the report deals with the sexual abuse that went on for years – fair game, and obviously something to be denounced – but  the U.N. committee “also severely criticized the Holy See for its attitudes toward homosexuality, contraception and abortion and said it should review its policies to ensure children’s rights and their access to health care are guaranteed.” Are you kidding me?

Via USA Today:

While most attention has focused on child sex abuse, the committee’s recommendations extended far beyond into issues about discrimination against children and their rights to adequate health care. By making specific recommendations to review Vatican policies on abortion and contraception, the committee waded deep into core church teaching on life. As a result, such recommendations will certainly be dismissed by the Vatican, which has a history of diplomatic confrontation with the United Nations over reproductive health care and similar issues.

Church teaching holds that life begins at conception; the Vatican therefore opposes abortion and artificial contraception.

Members of the UN Human Rights Committee:

The Human Rights Committee is composed of 18 independent experts who are persons of high moral character and recognized competence in the field of human rights.

Members are elected for a term of four years by States parties in accordance with articles 28 to 39 of the Covenant. Members serve in their personal capacity and may be re-elected if nominated.

Father Z weighs in:

Let me get this straight.

While berating the Catholic Church for sexual abuse of children, the United Nations criticized the Church for opposing legalization of abortion… the ultimate child abuse… and wants the Church to change her teachings.
