Reproductive Rights! Yes. Women have the right to not become pregnant. Rape? Less than 1% of all abortions in the US take place as a result of rape or incest, whereas, 70% of all abortions occur because the woman feels: she can’t afford it, she is not ready, or relationship problems. Overwhelmingly, abortions are thus simply a personal choice. Reproductive rights? Yes. Women have the right to not become pregnant and not get raped.
Ireland allows abortion only in specific circumstances; if the mother’s life is at risk. Ireland is its own sovereign nation, but apparently the UN wants to control that sovereignty. The UN and The Center for Reproductive Rights are fighting to change Ireland’s law concerning abortion.
And today the UN has over-reached again and declared that Ireland and Scotland are violating the human rights of children by compelling them to take part in Christian classes in school. Both of these nations are predominantly Catholic/Christian accounting for over 84% of the citizens in Ireland. The parents have no objection. But the UN is declaring that they, the UN, will decide what is best for the children of these sovereign nations.
We know who the UN is – an organization that was formed to perform international cooperation… Obviously they have expanded on that definition considerably and now would fancy themselves the overseers of all nations, all parents, all people. They will decide what is best for my children.
Who is the Center For Reproductive Rights: An ngo funded by; Soros Open Society, Hewlett Foundation, Buffett Foundation, Wellspring Advisors, JPB Foundation, Laura Arnold and HJW Foundation.
Their 990 tax return shows they had gross receipts of over $16.67 million in 2014. Of that, they spent about $740,000 on marketing, $12.76 went to wages (76.5%), travel and conferences was $1.37 million, and rent was $1.8 million. Of their $35 million in assets, $10 million are in investments and $14+ million in cash. Sounds like a pretty lucrative gig for a charitable organization protecting ‘reproductive rights’!
The Buffett Foundation was by far the largest donor. Managed by Allen Greenberg, according to it’s 2014 – 990, their total contributions to CRI was $14,230,000. The foundation is considered ‘enormously’ non-transparent and is headed by Turkiz Gokgol, a Turkish woman who previously worked for Pathfinder International. Founded in 1957, Pathfinder was a part of the eugenics movement advocating for sterilization. Pathfinder is now an NGO whose primary purpose and function is ‘birth control in Africa, Asia and South America’.
The other key figure at the foundation is Tracy Weitz, previously employed by Planned Parenthood. I think the agenda is pretty clear –
The Buffett Foundation also backs, International Projects Assistance Services, which manufactures a hand held suction pump used in developing countries to initiate abortions. The stated advantage to their device is that it does not require a doctor to perform the abortion and may be used by local midwives… and such – as in self-administered abortions.
Who is behind the human rights issue for children? The National Secular Society based out of London. They feel that religion is a threat to ‘open societies’, and that secularism protects the basic liberties of all citizens… except the religious of course. In seeking to create equality and unity, this Society wants to eradicate the beliefs of the majority and they have enjoined the UN to work for them.
The problem is that these organizations who claim to be “standing up for the minorities”, are actually attempting to quash the majorities thru control and suppression. Communism was a form of control and suppression that thrived within a secular state. And while the argument that religious institutions should not have a role in the state could just as easily be argued that secularism should not have a role in the state, the family, or the rights of religious peoples.
Having ‘nothingism’ is a faith. And pushing that nothingness on everyone, and not just the ‘minorities’, is bullying and suppression.
The UN and these NGO’s would be better organized to target states that behead, kill, torture, and maim its citizens, burn women alive and rape as a societal norm: Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Ukraine are currently at the forefront and yet – the UN simply claims it will again extend a ‘watch and wait’ while the deaths continue unabated… Priorities.
Personally, I think we have forgotten what democracy means – it is a voting right in which the majority make the decision. Instead, the UN, the NGO’s, would have us believe that the minority should determine how the majority lives.
Abortion? Apparently, because my government grants billions of dollars to various pro-abortion organizations, my tax dollars are complying despite the fact that nearly 70% of Americans do not support this.
Religion? According to a 2015 Gallup poll, 78% of Americans identify with a Christian religion. Yet my tax dollars will not support this because that would be ‘devisive’.
The point – hypocrisy reigns King.
