Ask a Question
Pro-homosexual activists are now claiming that same sex marriage is already a human right. Why? Because the United Nations says so - in its 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Let's not forget that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) asserts that states which have signed (e.g., Australia) "recognise that every child has the inherent right to life ..." and "shall ensure to the maximum extent possible the survival and development of the child."
It stipulates also that "the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth".
So will Australia's secular media now campaign to spread the word that abortion (killing the child before birth) is illegal - because the United Nations says so?
Perhaps not. Perhaps the UN is only invoked when what they say happens to suit current fashionable thought.
