Stop Abortion at the United Nations

skynewsafrica Stop Abortion at the United Nations


The United Nations is quickly convening the members of its International Conference on Populations and Development (ICPD) on Friday, May 29, 2020. This session was initially scheduled for March 30 – April 3 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 
Now they are asking members to urgently attend a cyber meeting where they will negotiate how to use international aid funding towards their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sadly, international aid funding for abortion is one of the top priorities. 

No abortion! Sign our petition to the Bureau Chairs of the United Nations ICPD to demand they stop using the COVID-19 crisis to push abortion.This action alert has a deadline of May 29. Because we are running short on time, we will deliver your signature directly inbox of the Bureau Chairs of ICPD. They work with the representatives of each country to develop the negotiated document. 
If approved in its current form, international aid funding meant to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic will be directed…

  • Abortion 
  • Demand countries to implement a strategy to increase access to abortion.
  • Condoms and birth control.
  • Sex education to children

We need your help to send a clear message at the international level. There is no international right to abortion.

Add your name: No abortion at the United Nations ICPDThe document that will be negotiated on May 29 is titled “Draft declaration on population, food security, nutrition and sustainable development in the context of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).”
Food security and nutrition are vital needs all over the world. By reading the title, one would think the United Nations is trying to use international aid funding for important needs. 

However, it reads, “We, the representatives of Governments, on occasion of the fifty-third session of the Commission on Population and Development, at the time of an unprecedented crisis caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic… (15) Commit to ensure, by 2030, universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes, and ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the” Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences.

They are hiding abortion in a document that should be advocating for some of the most vital needs. 

Sign now to help us demand to the United Nations NO ABORTION. Respond before May 29th. Because we are running short on time, we will deliver your signature directly inbox of the Bureau Chairs of ICPD.
