.- During its 32nd biannual meeting, the controversial UN Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women recommended the country of Paraguay review its laws against abortion and opt for a separation of Church and State from an “anti-Christian perspective.” The Committee was created by the UN to verify the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. Its authority has been freely ratified by each nation.

Due to the markedly pro-abortion and feminist leanings of the Committee, numerous pro-life organizations have pressured their respective nations to abstain from ratifying its protocol, which would give the Committee the ability to interfere in internal politics.

According to the news agency Noticias Globales, during the last meeting of the Committee in New York from January 10-28, its “experts” expressed their concern for “the connection between high maternal mortality rates and the criminalization of abortion under national laws that have not yet been struck down.”

According to the Committee, many women obtain clandestine abortions under unhygienic conditions and the mortality of women as a result of unsafe abortions continues to be a very serious problem, and “even more serious is the inaction of the government in this matter.”

The report by Noticias Globales stated, “Quite some time ago feminism took a markedly anti-Catholic turn.  For lesbian feminists, who ignore the natural order that is common to all men and women regardless of their religion, it’s the Church that prevents the ‘development of women’s human rights,’ such as reproductive and sexual rights (abortion, contraception, and homosexuality).”

“For them, the ‘separation’ between Church and State is more a totalitarian attempt to pull up the Christian roots of society through a renewed ideological persecution against Christians,” the report warned.

Committee “expert” Salma Khan expressed “great concern for the high maternal mortality rate, a result of the lack of family planning services and because of illegal abortions” in Paraguay, and she told the delegation that according to the Convention women should have complete access to family planning services,” that is, to unrestricted abortion.

Therefore, she “recommended the Paraguayan government reconsider the legalization of abortion and reform its current legislation.”  Likewise she insisted Paraguay “boost its sex-ed programs and family planning services.”
