Really? I'd like a citation for that in the dogmatic teaching of the Church.
Coincidentally (or providentially), the U.N. was established the same year C.S. Lewis' novel That Hideous Strength was published. The evil bureaucracy in his novel could be the model for the U.N.! Sometimes I wonder if the Holy Spirit was involved using Lewis (who certainly had great insight into the workings of Screwtape and his Father Below) to send a warning about the new Big Brother in town getting ready to unleash incredible evil on the world.

At any rate, while I was doing my research I visited C-FAM (Center for Family and Human Rights), the watch dog organization founded by Austen Ruse. If you want to know just how evil the U.N. is, go peruse his website. While I was visiting various pages, I came across their petition on the Right to Life in International Law. Every Catholic in the world should sign on! It's two years old, but the issue continues to be a major one at the U.N. They never miss an opportunity to promote abortion and contraception using buzz words like "women's reproductive rights" and "sustainable development."
So I urge you to sign and circulate the petition to everyone you know and on social media.
The preeminent issue of our day is the murder of babies in the womb waiting to be born. What can be more evil than for a mother to kill her own child and to have the father, the grandparents, and friends all urging her to do the bloody deed?
Please...sign the petition! It's two years old, but it's never too late to send a message to the bureaucrats at the U.N. that human rights begin with the baby in the womb.
