UN report advocates universal access to abortion

.- The United Nation’s recent Millennium Project Report openly advocates legalized abortion, says the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute in their latest issue of Friday Fax. The report, released last month by the Secretary General's advisory body, argues that advances in “reproductive rights,” which in UN parlance refers to abortion, are necessary to achieve the UN’s Millennium Development Goals.

The report will be presented in September to member states at the Millennium Summit, which has been scheduled to review the UN’s five-year-old initiative.

The report states that "ensuring universal access to sexual and reproductive health...is essential to the attainment of many" Millennium Development Goals.

The report is supplemented by 13 task force reports, including a report on gender equality, which state the same thing. However, the Millennium Development Goals do not make any mention of reproductive rights; neither does the Millennium Declaration on which they are based.

The Millennium Project Report has been endorsed by major UN agencies, including UNICEF, whose outgoing head Carol Bellamy stated: "We could not support it more strongly."

The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) referred to the report's insistence on universal access to reproductive health as "critical" to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
