THE SERVANT GENERAL
ASSAULTS ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
UNITED NATIONS’ ATTACKS ON PRO-LIFE
May 18, 2017
The United Nations (UN), especially through its bureaucrats,
has been very much a promoter of the culture of death for
a very long time. This is all in the guise of human rights.
How ironic. All have rights except the baby in the womb. The
UN keeps pushing member-nations to accept abortion, contraception
and same-sex unions.
Those that assault faith, family and life are very powerful
forces -- the UN, the EU, the US under Obama (thank God Trump
is starting to reverse all the liberal craziness Obama and
the Democratic Party of Death put into place), rich and powerful
corporations, liberal philanthropists, and so on.
It is difficult to resist, and there will always be costs.
But if we love and serve the one true God, if we are to be
authentic Catholics, if we are to be committed members of
CFC-FFL that stands for the renewal of the family and the
defense of life, then we must.
Calling all holy warriors!

pro-life country to give women the right to safe and legal

western countries about new laws thought to be limiting independence
of the judiciary and public media, as well as a reported increasingly

The debate took place Tuesday in Geneva during a session of
the Human Rights Council.
The Council is an intergovernmental body within the UN composed
of 47 member nation states elected by the UN General Assembly
to be responsible for the promotion
and protection of human rights around the globe. The Council
periodically reviews all UN members.
The session was the first review of Poland in five years,
and also the first since the 2015 election of the country’s
conservative Law and Justice party, which is facing accusations
of violating the rule of law from the European Union (EU).
Sheila Leonard, the U.S. representative at the session, said
her country remains “deeply concerned about judicial
“We are also concerned about the continued discrimination
and incidents targeting minorities in Poland,” Leonard
said,” including homophobic, xenophobic, and anti-Semitic
speech and acts.”
Turkey’s delegate voiced concern about an anti-Muslim
attitude in Poland, and the Russian delegate condemned a recent
wave of vandalism on memorials for a Soviet soldier who died
in World War II.
Polish officials defended their record and said the changes
the Law and Justice party initiated were in accord with European

state with Poland’s Foreign Ministry, reported how her

recent attempts to ban abortion entirely have fallen short.
Feminists took to the streets throughout the country last
fall to protest the proposed ban.

the Child called on Poland to give children wider access to
abortions, fight against “gender stereotypes,”
and amend its penal code to allow for prosecution of “hate
