WATCH: Canada pro-life organization tells UN there’s no ‘legal right’ to abortion
April 11, 2019 (Campaign Life Coalition) — On April 4, CLC's Global Policy and Research Coordinator Emily Price delivered a hard hitting pro-life statement to the United Nations 52nd Session of the Commission on Population and Development (CPD).
Pro-abortion delegations (including our very own Canadian government), U.N. agencies, and other non-governmental organizations have been inundating these plenary sessions with their battle cries for abortion and contraception on demand, so called 'sexual rights', and radical sex-ed programs in schools.
Our statement was very clear. We reminded the United Nations that there is NO universal legal right to abortion.
With the current Canadian government's foreign policy prioritizing abortion and gender issues, Canada's reputation at the U.N. has significantly gone downhill. As a matter of fact, when Emily finished delivering our statement, several delegates from various countries approached her to thank her, and expressed their shock that she was representing a Canadian organization. Others were surprised there are pro-life Canadians.
