Pro-life movements to propose amending Universal Declaration of Human Rights

.- A coalition of European pro-life and family organizations, led by the Italian organization Movement for Life, will present a proposal to amend the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to include recognition of the rights of the unborn.

Carlo Casini, president of Movement for Life, said on Monday after a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI that various pro-life groups in Europe will present the petition called “For The Sake of Life and the Dignity of Man” in December to a host of European institutions, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.

The proposal would amend the declaration to recognize the right to life of the unborn and would acknowledge marriage as the union between a man and a woman.

“We think the Magisterium of the Pope should be translated into works that have a far outreach and firm conviction, especially now as we mark 30 years of legal abortion in Italy,” Casini said.
