Conservatives know better than to be surprised when Biden attacks pro-life and anti-woke thought on American turf.
But now he’s taking this agenda internationally. . .
He is enlisting the UN to squash pro-baby and pro-family voices.
In a startling move, the Biden administration, in collaboration with Belgium and Macedonia, has called upon UN agencies and governments worldwide to intensify efforts against what they label as “anti-rights” and “anti-gender” movements.
These statements were made during a meeting on discrimination against women, sparking concerns among pro-life Americans.
At the heart of this issue lies a fierce debate on gender equity, equality, and the rights of unborn children.
The U.S. Adviser for the Third Committee, Patrick Breen, urged for a future UN report that would shed light on the detrimental impact of these so-called “anti-rights” and “anti-gender” movements on gender advancement.
However, critics argue that such rhetoric is an attempt to delegitimize socially conservative organizations, branding their beliefs on unborn life, marriage, and sexuality as “dangerous” and “anti-rights.”
In May, the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) released a working paper singling out organizations such as C-Fam, the Vatican/Holy See, Family Watch International, International Organization of the Family (IOF), World Congress of Families (WCF), Family Policy Institute, and the UN Family Rights Caucus as “anti-gender.”
The paper called for further investigations into pro-life and pro-family groups, sparking concerns about the UN’s impartiality and objectivity.
The UNRISD paper also recommended that progressive and feminist groups collaborate with pro-abortion and pro-same-sex marriage faith leaders.
This collaboration aimed to counter the influence of “anti-gender/pro-family actors” who, according to the paper, use religion to restrict rights to sexual and bodily autonomy.
Furthermore, the attempt to sideline pro-life and pro-family organizations at the UN transcends mere rhetoric.
Last year, the NGO Committee of the UN Commission on the Status of Women issued participation guidelines, demanding that all participants share the same view on sexuality and gender.
This move effectively excluded pro-life and pro-family groups from participating in significant parts of the Commission on the Status of Women.
The Commission also denied several event requests from pro-life organizations, deepening concerns about the fairness and inclusivity of the UN platform.
In response to suggestions from groups supported by the EU Mission to the UN to remove pro-life organizations from the UN entirely, pro-life groups rallied, gathering over 10,000 signatures in a petition demanding that all voices, regardless of ideology, be heard at the UN.
This groundswell of support highlights the importance of defending freedom of expression and protecting the values cherished by many Americans.
Amid these challenges, the EU’s stance has raised eyebrows, with critics pointing out a perceived double standard.
While the EU condemns efforts to intimidate civil society groups at the UN, it seems to celebrate engagement only with organizations that align with progressive values on gender, sexuality, and abortion.
The ongoing battle at the UN not only underscores the global clash of ideologies but also serves as a clarion call for Americans to stand firm in their beliefs.
As the UN becomes a battleground for values, defending faith and freedom becomes not just a choice but a necessity in preserving the principles that have shaped societies for generations.
