An expert is sounding the alarm against the United Nations for using the worldwide pandemic to push for the termination of more preborn babies.
Elyssa Koren, director of United Nations advocacy in New York City for Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) International, points out that the U.N. was established largely to help maintain peace. But now the international organization has announced that its affiliates will be pressing for the promotion of abortion as part of its campaign against COVID-19.
"The bureaucracy of the U.N. has really taken over, and this is the perfect example of that," Koren submits. "You have the agencies, the bureaucratic machine of the WHO (World Health Organization) really leading the course instead of the governments, [but] you still have a number of very stalwart pro-life governments across the world, and this announcement, this new campaign really flies in the face of the vision that these governments have had for the United Nations."
Koren says the abortion promotion policy is actually creating a number of problems with member states.
"One of the most egregious examples that we saw in this announcement was the decision for the WHO to move forward in conjunction with these groups to push for increasing access for abortion via telemedicine -- so abortion access for a woman or even a girl at home via access to a screen, potentially without any medical intervention at all," the pro-lifer explains.
That amounts to less medical help, which makes it all the more important for opposing nations, including the United States, to use their muscle to push back against the program.
