Bad UN Treaty Fails in Senate

Bradley Mattes   |   December 17, 2012

Pro-lifers won an important victory in the United Nations. The Senate recently voted on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The title sounds nice, but it would call for abortion in health care and population-based public health programs. This means they’d be using abortion to weed out persons with disabilities, not take care of them. It would also give the UN authority to oversee what we’re doing in America regarding these areas of providing service. As the president of the International Right to Life Federation, I opposed this treaty along with other pro-life leaders. Our efforts paid off and the Treaty didn’t pass in the Senate. This is a clear example of how important it is to contact your elected officials when we sound the alarm. Lives will be saved.
