This is an excerpt directly from a recent article by the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute. Please read and consider how this treaty is being used to open many other doors into our family life. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
(NEW YORK - C-FAM) International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has started distributing a brochure to inform children that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has established for them an international right to abortion. (the underlines are my addition to highlight the worst of this).
According to the brochure, just posted on the IPPF website, both the CRC's recognition of a child's right to life as well as a child's right to health can be interpreted to mean that children should have access to abortion. For example, the CRC's broad right to health includes the right to "visit a doctor or nurse to receive the full range of sexual and reproductive health services that are available and legal in your country, including contraceptives [and] abortion services" Also, because children have a right to life, they must be protected from reproductive problems that could threaten their lives, "such as...unsafe [illegal] abortion."
The brochure also informs children that the CRC frees them from any parental interference in their sexual education or in the provision of reproductive services. Because children have a right to health, "No one should turn you away or stop you from receiving services, or demand that you get someone else's permission first (e.g. the permission of a parent)." The right to privacy means that "If you tell a medical person or a teacher something that you don't want anyone else to know, then he or she should respect your privacy."
According to IPPF, the CRC firmly establishes a child's right to complete sexual freedom and autonomy. As the brochure tells children, "You should be given wide-ranging and easy to understand information on sexual and reproductive issues that will let you feel comfortable with yourself, your body and your sexuality. This information should enable you to make your own decisions about your sexual and reproductive health."

Our nation is steadily marching towards the loss of freedom for parents to direct the education and upbringing of their own children. Please read carefully and share broadly so that as more and more parents realize the present danger, our voices can combine to put a stop to this insanity.
