UN officials push for therapeutic abortion before Nicaraguan Supreme Court

.- A leading pro-life activist in Nicaragua has denounced two UN officials for appearing before the country’s Supreme Court in order to argue in favor of the restoration of therapeutic abortion in the country, using false information that “has all the ingredients for confusing and deceiving.”

According to Dr. Rafael Cabrera, president of ANPROVIDA, on April 18 officials from the UN in Nicaragua appeared before the Supreme Court to argue in favor of a constitutional challenge to a new law that prohibits “therapeutic abortion.”

The case is intended to make Nicaragua “conform to the pro-death UN conventions of Cairo and Beijing, in which Nicaragua always expressed reservations about abortion and gender control.”

Cabrera denounced the officials for attempting to quash “the will of 290,000 Nicaraguans who signed a petition asking lawmakers to pass this law, which was approved by a massive majority, without a single vote against it.  He denounced UN officials for attempting to deceive the justices and for insinuating that Nicaragua would lose the financial aid it has a right to if the law is not rescinded.

UN officials have “no right” to “alter the sovereign will of the citizens of the countries they are supposedly serving,” Cabrera emphasized, and he said top UN leaders should work to keep the organization faithful to it’s original mission of serving human dignity and avoiding holocausts.  “With their attitude, these UN officials are promoting a new holocaust,” he added, “the Holocaust of the innocent unborn.”
