MANILA, June 25, 2012–The Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development meeting in Rio de Janeiro last week rejected inclusion of the term “reproductive rights” in the final document. Headed by the Holy See along with Russia, Chile, Egypt, Syria, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, all voted against what could have been a major catalyst for worldwide population control as a means of achieving sustainable development.
The Nicaraguan delegation pointed out that the attempt to include the term “reproductive rights” in the final document, titled The Future We Want, which was signed by 52 heads of state Friday is a “code at the UN for abortion.”
Among the proposed agreements at the Brazil confab are spending billions of dollars to achieve 80% reduction in CO2 emission by 2050, enforceable worldwide environmental regulations, global currency, “sustainable diet” for all humans, and population control at “sustainable levels.”
David Rothbard, president of Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), said that the The Future We Want document is full of troubling policy proposals. He admitted that “there are many more ill-conceived proposals in the current draft and there are still worse things being pushed behind closed doors by bureaucrats and pressure groups.” (CBCP for Life)
