UN Draft Redefines Sanctity of Life : Please Sign ACLJ Petition To Save Lives Of Unborn, Elderly & Sick

This morning I signed the petition to stand against the UN’s attack on unborn babies, the elderly & the sick. They are redefining the sanctity of life in a way that will make the killing of children and other vulnerable sectors of society legal. I urge you to consider signing it as well. I am including the letter I received via email asking me to participate by signing the petition below as well as links to their full article and the UN Draft. Please take the time today to do your part and help those lives that this would effect.

The ACLJ released an article detailing exactly what the UN is attempting to draft against the sanctity of life. This is not only an attack on the unborn, but also the elderly, and tries to implement doctor assisted suicides. The article also links to the UN Draft if you would care to read it in its entirety.

“Following the horrific violations of human rights that occurred during World War II, much of the world recognized the importance of establishing laws to protect the inherent right to life of all persons. As such, Article 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) states, “Every human being has the inherent the right to life. This right shall be protected by law.” Yet the U.N. Human Rights Committee is rewriting the definition of the “right to life” to mean the right to an abortion: the right to kill innocent children.

The ICCPR is a treaty that was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1966 and went into force in 1976. The ICCPR is part of the International Bill of Human Rights and enumerates the right to life, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. It has been ratified by 169 States.

The U.N. Human Rights Committee is attempting revise its General Comment on Article 6 to now include support for abortions and even assisted suicide. The draft forbids States from introducing “burdensome requirements on women seeking to undergo abortion,” and provides that States “must provide safe access to abortion.”

The article goes on to say…

“It is not only the unborn that are at risk, but also the elderly and sick. In the draft, they also include protections for assisted suicide: “State parties [may allow] [should not prevent] medical professionals to provide medical treatment of the medical means in order to facilitate the termination of life of [catastrophically] afflicted adults, such as the mortally wounded or terminally ill, who experience severe physical or mental pain and suffering and wish to die with dignity.”

This is just the latest move in the attack against the sanctity of life. Recently, we have witnessed Iceland embrace the practice of eugenics in order to “cure” Down Syndrome through abortion. In England, doctors decided to take Baby Charlie off of life support and leave him to die even when there were other options.”

To read the article in its entirety : The Right To Life Is Not The Right To Kill

The following is the email I received this morning that from the ACLJ. I urge you to read the article The Right To Life Is Not The Right To Kill and then stand for the sanctity of life. 

The Bible says in Jeremiah 1:5 “”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” I hold firm to the belief that life on earth begins at conception not at birth. 

The Email From ACLJ

Babies are being slaughtered worldwide at a horrific pace.

It’s estimated that 27 million babies have already been aborted so far this year across the globe – Planned Parenthood alone murdered over a million.

Every life is precious. Every baby deserves to live. Now we have an opportunity to act.

The world has recognized a right to life through the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Yet the U.N. Human Rights Committee is rewriting the definition of the “right to life” to mean the right to an abortion.

It’s infuriating. If we don’t act, millions more babies will die.

Yet we have a voice. The ACLJ, along with our international affiliates, have been asked to submit critical legal filings at the U.N. to defend the lives of unborn babies. This is the most critical U.N. filing for life we’ve ever made.

Our U.N. deadline is looming. We urgently need your voice now.

  1. God Showed me something special in Jeremiah 1 when I preached about the sanctity of human life over 4 years ago. Through the phrase “before I formed you in the belly I knew you”, I saw that life begins before conception. We were created in the mind and heart of God before there was a physical manifestation. This passage is special to me also because God reminds me that He set me apart, and I must not fear those who would oppose me.

  2. The Mother of Abortion is Unwanted Pregnancy. And the Father of Assisted-Suicide is Unwanted Pain. When I think about these topics, I try to put my efforts & sweat into the preventive side of things: how can I convince people before having sex that an unwanted pregnancy would be bad/wrong/inconvenient; what can I do to comfort someone with the symptoms of M.S. or late-stage cancer? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In one case, education & guidance seems to be needed. In the other, our own compassion perhaps. I’m certainly against eugenics. It’s a complicated mess.
