U.N. Plotting Takeover Of Internet: ‘Several nations are set on asserting intergovernmental control’

    Steve Elwart at WorldNetDaily: The hope of several countries is that they can expand the ITU’s jurisdiction to the Internet, replacing the current governing system with one that is controlled by a U.N. bureaucracy. The member nations will also consider an “Internet tax” designed to collect money from more affluent nations and redistribute it to poorer nations to improve their Internet infrastructure. ITRs do not currently include regulation of the Internet within their jurisdiction, since they have not been revised since the beginning of the Internet communications era.

Report on Intolerance Against Christians Submitted to UN Human Rights Commission

Fire Alarm Goes Off As Diplomats Criticize Human Rights Boss

    C-FAM: The OHCHR has become a principal promoter in the UN system of new special rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons. The African Group and other delegations asked the Ms. Pillay to concentrate on “universally recognized human rights.” Roughly half of all UN member states perceive the efforts of the OHCHR to advance LGBT rights as offensive, given the many pressing human rights issues they face.

    C-FAM: The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is continuing to spearhead efforts to make lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights into human rights.

UN Schools for “Palestinians” refuse to teach the holocaust, U.S. funds 22%

Abortion: USAID is proposing a plan of implants | DiarioPanorama.com

    DiarioPanorama.com (translation from Spanish by Google): The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID, for its acronym in Spanish) announced on World Contraception Day partnership with international donors to distribute Jadelle (second generation Norplant) among women poor in developing countries. This contraceptive is not marketed for use in more affluent countries. The product was developed by the Population Council, a group known for its eugenic roots. “The most likely eugenic goals will be attained under another name than that of eugenics” wrote Frederick Osborn, the first president of the Population Council, founded by John D. Rockefeller III in the fifties . . . One of the topics discussed was related to the interaction between domestic legislation and the institutions that protect the life and “soft law” transnationalist, that pro-abortion activists demanding liberalization of practice frequently mentioned. Nikolas Nikas, the Bioethics Defense Fund presented a panel on international law which was attended by Jane Adolphe, Ave Maria University, Stefano Gennarini, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-FAM Friday Fax editor) and Piero Tozzi, Defending the Freedom Alliance. Another of the speakers was Francisco Javier Borrego Borrego, former member of the European Court of Human Rights

New Study Reignites Abortion Drug Controversy

    C-FAM: A new study critiquing a drug’s effectiveness in childbirth sparked a vicious backlash from the abortion lobby this week, deepening concerns over the politicization of international maternal health research. A study published in the prestigious journal of the Royal Society of Medicine investigated how well the drug misoprostol prevents life-threatening bleeding in women who have just delivered a baby. It found that existing research is insufficient to justify the inclusion of misoprostol on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) list of essential medicines.

U.N. Secretary General: Free speech OK only if it doesn’t provoke or humiliate

    Eugene Volokh at the Volokh Conspiracy quoting the UN Secretary General: All human beings have the inalienable right to freedom of expression, freedom of assembly. These are very fundamental rights. But, at the same time, this freedom of expression should not be abused by individuals. Freedom of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected, when they are used for common justice, common purpose. When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way. So, my position is that freedom of expression, while it is a fundamental right and privilege, should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act.

    Stefano Gennarini at C-FAM: C-FAM (publisher of the Friday Fax) along with Alliance Defending Freedom and Focus on the Family filed a brief with the Commissioner last month pointing out that UN Treaty Monitoring Bodies overreach their mandate when they rewrite hard law treaties to include a right to abortion and then direct governments to adhere to the new norms . . . C-FAM has been working in the UN arena for 15 years. Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly Alliance Defense Fund) is the largest pro-life and family non-profit law firm in the world and has won 38 cases at the Supreme Court. Focus on the Family is the largest pro-family organization in the world. The organizations have been working closely together for months on treaty body reform.
