March 2, 2021 (C-Fam) — A new UN report on children and privacy might shock parents if they ever knew about it. Produced by a “special rapporteur” and published by the UN Human Rights Council, the report probes the far-frontiers of sex.
The report asserts that “sexual expression” is part of the “interwoven fabric of children’s privacy.” The report defines children as anyone under the age of 18. Presumably, this includes children in swaddling clothes.
The report asserts that “adolescents need to be able to make decisions regarding their well-being and bodies, and to safely and privately explore their sexuality as they mature, whether offline or online.” However, the report explains, bodily integrity and autonomy rights are infringed by “governments, commercial entities, health-care providers and other professionals, parents, and peers.” How are bodily integrity and autonomy rights infringed? Denial of abortion. Requiring parental permission for abortion and contraception. Therapy for unwanted sexual attractions. And slut-shaming.
The report insists that children have diverse gender identities, sexual orientations, and expression. A recent poll out from the Gallup polling organization shows that more children do believe these things. The numbers for “trans” and “bi” have increased substantially in recent years. Advocates say this is the result of increasing societal acceptance. Critics will say it is because of LGBT propaganda in the media and schools. It could be possible that children are announcing these changes under peer pressure and being au courant.
The report charges that children with these conditions are subjected to a long list of negative consequences, everything from violence and discrimination to denial of medical treatment and lack of legal recognition.
The report is part of a more extensive UN program on “Artificial Intelligence and Children’s Rights.” UNICEF has issued a lengthy report on the topic. It speaks to the power of massive coordination for messaging and programs possessed by UN agencies and other actors. One of the human rights regime’s strengths is that it is universal and applies to all. Many years ago, however, the UN began ghettoizing human rights. Rather than universal human rights, the UN has pushed for rights that are not universal since they apply uniquely to women, homosexuals, and children.
One of the most universally accepted UN treaties is the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It has been acceded to by almost all the world’s governments, except for the United States. While President Bill Clinton signed it in 1995, it has never been voted on by the full U.S. Senate. This is because acceding to treaties requires 2/3 of the Senate voting in favor, and the Democrats have never been able to muster that much support. Conservatives view the children’s rights convention as too radical in that it alleges children are rights bearers entirely separate from their parents. Moreover, it calls for children to receive information of any kind from any source.
The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.
But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.
Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.
Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!
This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.
Yes, it's THAT important.
The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.
It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.
It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!
We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!
SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!
And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.”
"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."
"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."
ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:
Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:
"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."
And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.
On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."
The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."
And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"
Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."
It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

LifeSiteNews opinion and analysis of the so-called 'Equality Act':
The latest report issued by the Human Rights Council takes children’s rights even further. The challenge for parents worldwide is they will never know about this document, neither will they understand its impact on their national governments, which can be considerable. Lawyers and judges, however, use such reports to impose new ideas on national governments and even school systems.
