The OAS will attempt to impose abortion and euthanasia
UPDATE, JUNE 16: Victory! The speakers representing Civil Society on the topics of Human Rights, Development, Democracy, and Security, took a strong positions in favor of the protection of the right to life from conception to natural death, in favor of marriage between a man and a woman (and against gender ideology), and in favor of religious freedom!
Our CitizenGO representative at the OAS made a statement to the Secretary General, telling him about the signatures collected by CitizenGO, and telling him that the vast majority of people in OAS member states want the OAS to stop focusing on promoting abortion (against the American Convention on Human Rights) and an agenda promoted by a group of radical sexual activists. Instead, our petition signers want the OAS to focus on the real issues: clean drinking water, food, and democratic governance. The OAS is ignoring political abuse in Venezuela and Cuba. They need to focus on these things instead of the controversial issues promoted by a minority of radical sexual activists.
From June 15-16, the 45th General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) will meet in Washington D.C. Unfortunately, the discussion will no doubt return to abortion and homosexual "marriage," but this time the promotion of euthanasia has also been added to the agenda.
After the defeat of the radical pro-abortion and pro-LGBT lobby at the OAS Summit of the Americas in Panama a few months ago, they vowed to take their revenge at the General Assembly in Washington D.C. Now, they are planning to be stronger than ever--and we need your help to make sure our voice is heard!
CitizenGO will be there to defend life and family together with other pro-life and pro-family lobbyists. This year will be particularly difficult because the new secretary general, Luis Almagro from Uruguay, has already declared openly his favor of abortion, euthanasia, homosexual "marriage," and the legalization of drugs.
It an agenda of death which also violates the sovereignty of states, goes beyond the mandate of the treaties, and certainly far beyond the values and traditions of the peoples of the Americas.
In addition, the Assembly will discuss--and eventually approve--a Convention on the Elderly. In the draft of this treaty, references to the "right to autonomy" could be misinterpreted as including a right to euthanasia. Moreover, the draft calls for the right to "sexual and reproductive health" for the elderly and "non-discrimination" based on "sexual orientation." We all know what that means.
For now, Jamaica, Nicaragua, the United States, Canada, and Peru have already announced their reservations to the text, but the goal is to achieve greater rejection of the controversial aspects.
Moreover, the Assembly will also debate a resolution on "sexual orientation." (The featured image at the top of the page is an actual photo from the OAS headquarters this week. It's incredible...) It's the same as in other years, but this year is particularly delicate because it coincides with the U.S. Supreme Court's upcoming decision on imposing homosexual unions. Also here we will fight, although--this is encouraging--there are already 14 countries that have expressed their rejection of this text.
Finally, although no official documents have been released yet, it is fairly predictable that the "right" to abortion will be openly raised as it was by the Inter-American Commission of Women on the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8.
Write to your representatives of the OAS and ask them to respect the sovereignty of states, national law, our culture and our traditions!
