UN Human Rights Committee Pushes Abortion to Eradicate Disabilities

U.N. Human Rights Committee member Yadh Ben Achour of Tunisia suggested that the committee continue to push abortion as a “preventive measure” against such disabilities as Down syndrome. “[This] doesn’t mean that we are against the disabled or that we won’t help the disabled when born disabled,” Ben Achour said. “But that does not mean that we have to accept to let [sic] a disabled fetus live. This is a preventive measure.” Apparently for Achour, the right to life only begins at birth.

In response, a Down syndrome woman known as Charlotte Fien produced her own YouTube video in which she said, “If any other heritable traits, like skin color, were used to eradicate a group of people, the world would cry out. Why are you not crying out when people like me are being made extinct? What have we done to make you want us to disappear?”

Drag Queen Story Time Comes to London

Seven of Britain’s London Early Years Foundation nursery schools will introduce Drag Queen Story Time starting in mid-November to promote LGBT themes and “tolerance” to children as young as 2.

The drag queen group was started by an Englishman through a crowdfunding campaign after learning about New York City’s Drag Queen Story Hour. If the program is a success, it will appear at 37 other sites in England.

Dr. Michelle Cretella, the president of the American College of Pediatricians, says that this kind of educational program “is disruptive to preschool and early elementary school children’s cognitive and psychological development to expose them to drag queen story hours and gender-bending storybooks. Schools and public libraries that embrace transgenderism are gaslighting our kids.”

Majority of Australians Favor ‘Same-Sex’ Marriage, Survey Results Show

On November 15, 62 percent of Australia’s registered voters said yes to same-sex “marriage” on the non-binding, nationwide mail-in survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

While liberals touted it a victory for “love,” the Australian founder of Answers in Genesis, Ken Ham, said, “Australians didn’t vote ‘yes for love’ as the Prime Minister claims. They voted ‘yes’ for sin, ‘yes’ for darkness, ‘yes’ for man’s word over God’s Word, ‘yes’ for a perversion of the only true marriage that God invented—one man, for one woman.”

After the survey results were released, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull seemed intent to have same-sex “marriage” legalized by Christmas, but not without pushback from the conservative party, which is concerned about religious liberty exemptions for those in wedding businesses.

“If a ‘yes’ vote is returned,” said Lyle Shelton, a spokesman for Australia’s Coalition for Marriage, “we will do what we can to guard against restrictions on freedom of speech and freedom of religion, to defend parents’ rights, and to protect Australian kids from being exposed to radical LGBTIQ sex and gender education in the classrooms. We promise our supporters that no matter the result, we will continue to work to defend Australian families.”

UK Tries to Redefine Who Can Be Pregnant

After reviewing the U.N.’s International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, a document written in the 1960s, U.K’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) wants to change the term “pregnant women” to “pregnant people” to avoid offending “transgenders” who have given birth.

But that request brought outrage from a British feminist. Quoted on The Christian Institute website, Sarah Ditum noted: “This isn’t inclusion. This is making women unmentionable. Having a female body and knowing what that means for reproduction doesn’t make you ‘exclusionary.’”

Despite the protest, FCO stood by its desire for the change, saying, “We strongly support the right to life of pregnant women, and we have requested that the Human Rights Committee does not exclude pregnant transgender people from that right.”
