Friday Nov 16, 2012 18:43 EST UN report: Religious objections to contraception and abortifacients violate human rights
"The world body [UN] declares it will support those who combat views that make contraception, including aboriton-including drugs, unacceptable. âUNFPA commits in particular toâŚsupporting both men and women to transform gender attitudes and cultural barriers that impede access to and use of family planning,â it states.
"Many believe the declaration of such âbirth controlâ measures is intended to pave the way for a global approval of abortion-on-demand.
âWhat is to stop the UNFPA from declaring that abortion is a âbasic human rightâ?â Brian Clowes of Human Life International asked in a statement e-mailed to LifeSiteNews.com.
"The UNFPA report states, âThe right to family planning is also a gateway to the achievement of other rights.â"
