.- A leading pro-life activist in Nicaragua has denounced two UN officials for appearing before the countryâs Supreme Court in order to argue in favor of the restoration of therapeutic abortion in the country, using false information that âhas all the ingredients for confusing and deceiving.â
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 âtherapeutic abortion.â
The case is intended to make Nicaragua âconform to the pro-death UN conventions of Cairo and Beijing, in which Nicaragua always expressed reservations about abortion and gender control.â
Cabrera denounced the officials for attempting to quash âthe 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the justices and for insinuating that Nicaragua would lose the financial aid it has a right to if the law is not rescinded.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 âno rightâ to âalter the sovereign will of the citizens of the countries they are supposedly serving,â Cabrera emphasized, and he said top UN leaders should work to keep the organization faithful to itâs original mission of serving human dignity and avoiding holocausts. âWith their attitude, these UN officials are promoting a new holocaust,â he added, âthe Holocaust of the innocent unborn.â
