  • Abortion games between Brazil and UN

    Last Days Watchman ^ | Julio Severo
    Abortion games between Brazil and UN By Julio Severo Last week the Dilma Rousseff administration was pressed by CEDAW (Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women) about an alleged number of 200,000 deaths of women each year because of illegal abortion in Brazil. The Brazilian representatives showed no willingness to question this patently inflated number. Official data from the Brazilian government show that 146 women, whose pregnancy ended in abortion, died in 1996. In 2004, 156 women died. Where did CEDAW get the extravagant figure of 200,000 deaths? From Brazilian feminist NGOs funded largely by US pro-abortion institutions as...

    The Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), a prominent U.S.-based public interest group litigating and lobbying for pro-abortion policies world-wide, has released its annual report for 2007. The reported CRR budget confirms that large US foundations continue their heavy financial support for radical social policies not only in the US, but all over the world. The report shows that close to fifty percent of CRR’s $14 million budget is financed by more than forty American foundations. The Hewlett and Packard foundations lead the way. Other prominent donors include Ford and MacArthur foundations as well as George Soros’ Open Society Institute. CRR...

    Poland Abortion Group Says Women Head to Other Nations for Abortions by Steven Ertelt LifeNews.com Editor August 28, 2007 Warsaw, Poland (LifeNews.com) -- In an effort to promote abortions in this pro-life nation, pro-abortion advocates in Poland are trying to make the case that abortion should be legalized because so many women travel to other European nations for them. The Polish Federation for Woman and Family Planning claims several thousand Poles head abroad every year. Wanda Nowicka, the head of the pro-abortion organization, says “Women from Warsaw most often choose either Britain or the Netherlands." The British Pregnancy Advisory Service,...

    In 1999 the CEDAW Committee, which regulates the operation of CEDAW in countries that ratify and domesticate it, told Columbia that the provision of its law outlawing abortion was a violation of the rights of women to health enshrined in article 12 of CEDAW. On July 1, 1999 the CEDAW lambasted Nepal for criminalizing abortion. On July 9, 1999, CEDAW Committee told Chile that the Chilean laws punishing abortion were violating the rights of Chilean women.

    Document gives U.N. committee authority to dictate family policy. Senate Democrats may be on the verge of resurrecting a treaty that could be used to require U.S. compliance with liberal policies, such as a right to abortion and legalization of prostitution.  The treaty -- the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women  (CEDAW)  -- was signed by President Carter in 1980, but was never ratified by the U.S. Senate and has been in limbo ever since.  More than 180 countries have ratified the treaty, which established a United Nations committee to monitor participation in CEDAW ....

    In the last four decades, a feminist revolution has swept the globe. To be sure, this revolution has brought many beneficial changes to our world. Now, for instance, much of the world allows and encourages women to bring their talents into the public spheres of work and public policy. But this revolution has also brought less welcome developments to the global scene. What might be described as the androgynous impulse—an impulse that seeks to deny any essential or biologically based differences between men and women—is one of those developments. Androgynous Impulse This impulse can be found, among other places, in...

    Feminists of a certain political stripe are accusing the Bush administration of "flip-flopping on its commitment to women." "In a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, 14 leaders from women's health, human rights and development organizations questioned the U.S. commitment to halving world poverty by 2015," asserts a Sept. 13 press release from the International Conference on Population and Development. "With less than 24 hours until the start of the World Summit at the United Nations, the U.S. refuses to endorse policies that would significantly advance poverty goals by advancing women's rights."

    Unusual things are happening in the feminist world. The Hungarian representative to UN’s Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) said that, in the future, abortion will be viewed by women in the same way that torture is now viewed by human rights advocates. Now, given how often the UN turns a blind eye to torture, Saddam Hussein’s regime being a fine example of the carefully shielded glance, we may justifiably wonder if this means torture will become acceptable or abortion unacceptable. But even so, the possibility that CEDAW members are beginning to question the practice is telling....

    Unusual admissions were made yesterday by a member of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, a UN committee that monitors compliance with the Convention of the same name (CEDAW). The CEDAW Committee is notorious for pressuring countries to liberalize their laws on abortion. However, at yesterday's meeting, Hungary's representative called abortion "bad for women," and said that in the future, abortion will come to be seen the same way that "torture" is currently viewed in the area of human rights. The Committee has convened for its 33rd session to examine the progress reports of six countries including...

Yet, the timing of Beijing +10 couldn’t be worse for radical feminists.  They were counting on this conference to be the capstone of...

Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meeting in New York has not dropped a contentious proposal to make clear that a key document on women's equality does not uphold a "right" to abortion. Spokesman for the U.S. Mission to the U.N., Richard Grenell, told CNSNews.com mid-afternoon Thursday New York time that the reports were wrong.

The final approval prompted cheers, applause and a standing ovation by some participants.

CEDAW issued a press release January 24, in which it complained that, despite having set up a Ministry for Women’s Affairs, the role of married women in Samoan society was too traditional and mostly oriented towards family life. It said not enough women run for political office, and that abortion is still illegal despite...

    Peter Sprigg begins his new book on same-sex marriage, Outrage, with a paradox: Most Americans oppose it, "yet in terms of political action, the pro-family, pro-marriage majority has been strangely muted." Sprigg attributes this to a lack of intellectual ammunition and aims to remedy that deficiency with this book. He is certainly qualified to do so. Director of the Center for Marriage and Family Studies at the Family Research Council (FRC), Sprigg has also co-authored a more scholarly book published by FRC that assembles the scientific research on homosexuality. Some highlights of that research provide the factual foundation for...

That’s where we get our phrase, “stalking horse.” The horse out front is meant to deceive -- behind it, lurks an unseen threat. Today, there are yet fowlers among us. This week, at the United Nations, a group of fowlers from 23 nations are meeting to assess various nations’ progress on women’s issues. They are hiding behind a stalking...

Congress should accelerate and make permanent the tax cuts voted in 2001. In particular, Congress should remedy the ridiculous and deceitful current law that eliminates the death tax in 2010 but reinstates it at high levels in 2011 and imposes a brand new tax on the heirs...

    Two main problems exist with the United Nations’ treaty on Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) – what it says and what it does. At first blush, some may believe the sweeping language and personal issues it addresses would benefit women. But it is, in fact, the broad language and intrusiveness – embodied in something as powerful as a treaty – that makes CEDAW a tool for mischief. Family law, parental rights, religious exercise, education, abortion regulation, employment pay scales, quotas in educational institutions, workplaces and elected offices, and homosexual privileges – these...

Yessir, the repeatedly defeated ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) has been reincarnated in the form of a 900 pound gorilla called CEDAW (rhymes with HEE HAW). Basically, CEDAW is a U.S. treaty with the world that calls for the International eradication of Mother's Day, Father's Day, parental rights, heterosexuality, and manhood in exchange for the legalization of prostitution and for one "choice" — abortion. That's it in a nutshell. (Sorry, just being colorful.) By now it's old news that the ever spineless...

    After more than two decades of the U.S. Senate refusing to ratify the United Nation's Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination Against Women, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved the treaty July 30, sending CEDAW once more to a full Senate vote. What is CEDAW? The treaty requires all signatory nations to condemn sexism and to establish legal mechanisms, such as legislation, to protect women against discrimination. Ratification of CEDAW could be disastrous for the United States. CEDAW would give an intrusive, corrupt, non-elected foreign body -- the U.N. -- the power to sculpt American laws and...

    The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted out the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, known as CEDAW. Every single Democrat and two Republicans voted in favor of this measure. The two Republicans supporting CEDAW were Sen. Lincoln Chaffee (R-RI), who is consistently at odds with his Republican colleagues, and Senator Gordon Smith (R-OR). Smith is in a tough re-election campaign and Oregon is a very liberal state. It is encouraging that two moderate Republicans, Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) and Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), voted against the treaty. That is probably because the treaty...

    For those who doubt that the UN wants to interfere in the internal affairs of the US and every other country, here's an article from the Illinois Leader. Thursday August 8, 2002 In a last-minute vote before summer break, the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 12 to 7 in favor of the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). Ratification requires two-thirds of Senators present when the vote is taken. On July 31, the New York Times reported that the treaty needs 3 more votes to pass. In January 2002, Uruguay, a...

    The Washington Times ^ | August 7, 2002 | Janice Shaw Crouse
    <p>Score one for the far left. Its political maneuvering paid off on CEDAW (a treaty known erroneously as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women). The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, by resurrecting and jumping it ahead of 18 other bills and then passing a treaty that had, wisely, been buried for more than 20 years, handed liberals what they hope will be a winning issue for the fall congressional elections and gained momentum for their radical domestic agenda. The problem is that, in the process, they have betrayed both women and their country.</p>

    "The 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up. ... An end run around sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault." So wrote diplomat Richard Gardner in 1974. And there is no better illustration of conducting an end run around sovereignty than the feminist drive to have the Senate ratify the U.N. "Convention to End All Forms of Discrimination Against Women." Crafted by radical feminists, "CEDAW" was adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in 1979 and signed by Jimmy Carter in 1980. When the Reagan Revolution...

    Opening salvo on treaty for women Endorsement by Senate panel puts Republicans in tough spot WASHINGTON The Democratic-controlled Senate Foreign Relations Committee, over the objections of the Bush administration, has approved an international treaty intended to eliminate discrimination against women. The vote set up a politically divisive floor fight pitting women's rights groups against religious and social conservatives. The treaty, known as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, requires member nations to reduce barriers against women in housing, politics, employment, health care and legal systems. It requires that women have equal rights to work,...

    From Concerned Women of America: We ask you to take action on one very urgent item today! This time, we need to ask you to make a phone call to have the maximum impact -- an email will take too long. (It's not often you hear that, is it?) CEDAW. Last week, Senator Joe Biden (D-Delaware), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, postponed the committee's consideration of a resolution to ratify the United Nation's Anti-Mother's Day treaty -- officially called the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). He has rescheduled it to be...

    Dear Colleague, US Senate extremists are insisting upon voting the UN's dangerous CEDAW treaty out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. They are going to vote on CEDAW this Thursday morning. They seek to make this radical treaty US law! They must experience your anger. You must call the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Senator Joseph Biden's office and tell them you are against CEDAW (telephone numbers below). As you recall, CEDAW is the radical anti-woman treaty that seeks tolegalize prostitution, end Mother's Day, and violate US sovereignty! CEDAW established a UN committee that pressured China to legalize abortion, pressured...

    UN Feminist ThreatBy Christina Hoff SommersFrontPageMagazine.com | July 22, 2002 For more than two decades, the United States Senate has wisely resisted signing on to the United Nations' Treaty for the Rights of Women. But every few years, feminist groups pressure politicians to reconsider it. Now, once again, the treaty is back. Senators Joseph Biden and Barbara Boxer, with the help of Clinton administration holdovers in the State Department, are pushing for ratification of "The Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women" (CEDAW). The Bush administration and the Senate Republicans oppose CEDAW and seem to...
