UN Dismisses Declaration Granting Sexual Rights to Youth

In what is being hailed as a huge victory for life, the United Nations General Assembly roundly rebuked a controversial declaration granting "sexual rights" to youth, signaling that the assembly is growing weary with the constant and aggressive push for "reproductive rights" by abortion ideologues.

The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) is reporting that the document, known as the "Bali Declaration", was the focus of an expense Global Youth Forum last year that was orchestrated by the virulently pro-abortion UN Population Fund (UNFPA).

It was at this conference last year that participation by the Girl Scouts' international umbrella group, the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides (WAGGGS), invoked a barrage of criticism upon the organization. WAGGGS was part of a steering committee for the declaration that included Planned Parenthood. The groups were pushing for the provision of legal abortion and recognition of the “sexual rights” of youth regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity in countries around the world.

However, nearly a year after this conference took place, the document was not only dismissed, diplomats refused to even "take note" of it.

"This rejection is a resounding rebuke to the UN Population Fund (UNFPA). As a key organizer of the Bali conference, it threw its weight and untold amounts of funds behind the strategy to arrange 'youth delegates' to attend the conference and push abortion and sexual rights," writes Rebecca Oas, Ph.D., for C-FAM.

"Seasoned UN observers speculate that the UN General Assembly is weary of arguing over these perennial controversies, and of UNFPA’s bare-knuckled approach of pushing abortion and sexual rights onto countries, rather serving its mission given by countries."
