Why the silence on Christian elimination?
Sheila Liaugminas | Sep 1 2014 | comment  
Pope, patriarchs and prelates are crying out for intervention. Where are the presidents and prime ministers?

Vatican attacked again by UN committee
Sheila Liaugminas | Feb 18 2014 | comment  
If the Catholic Church is so out of touch and irrelevant, why the concerted efforts at the UN to drive out the Vatican’s influence?

Run-up to Syria

What’s about to happen?

UN studies ‘status of women’
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 25 2013 | comment  
That requires a qualifier, depending on what constitutes the UN, and which group there is being cited.

Advancing radical agenda
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 22 2013 | comment  
Sometimes, it seems like we’re dwelling in Wonderland. But some of us who are aware are doing a lot of wondering. Especially about headlines and stories that are too bizarre to make up, but too extreme to be true. Except…they are.

‘Unfounded population fears’
Sheila Liaugminas | Jul 26 2011 | comment  
The myth of overpopulation has been widely debunked for a while now. So did activists who based their global ‘reproductive health’ efforts shift attention to real human needs? No. They changed the language and spun it.

Let the UN look at itself
Sheila Liaugminas | Nov 7 2010 | comment  

The U.S. is being judged by the United Nations Human Rights Council for our record and performance on human rights protections.  According to what? The guidelines spelled out in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Or so they say. It’s not really as pristine a cause as that. It’s providing a forum for tyrants to blast the U.S.


UN conference on women: Shedding light
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 12 2010 | comment  
Many thousands of women, organizations and NGOs descended on New York for the recent global checkup with the annual  ’Commission on the Status of Women’, with the Beijing conference as sort of a benchmark. It was heavy on the agenda of spreading access to abortion under the mantle of ‘reproductive rights’, but there was a large pro-life contingent there to stake claims that authentic dignity for women comes from true universal human rights….for all human beings.

Religious restrictions in the name of freedom?
Sheila Liaugminas | Feb 11 2010 | comment  
This happened during the Enlightenment. Nations and states and societies with short memories, or the gullibility to succumb to revisionist history, are letting it happen again. Even where people are not losing their faith, they’re losing their rights to freely express their religiously informed voices. 

What deserves attention at the UN
Sheila Liaugminas | Nov 27 2009 | comment  

C-Fam reports the goings-on in some of the United Nations’ committees. They’re covering issues that deserve more widespread attention.


‘A radical redefinition of the term gender’
Sheila Liaugminas | Oct 15 2009 | comment  
In a report on the protection of human rights? In the context of counter-terrorism? What’s this about….?

Without actually using the word ‘abortion’
Sheila Liaugminas | Oct 15 2009 | comment  
The Obama administration’s UN ambassador gave a rundown of the sweeping changes they have made to advance abortion rights and access globally.

UN-characteristic
Sheila Liaugminas | Sep 22 2009 | comment  
For all the ink spilled today on those notorious speeches on the floor of the United Nations General Assembly, I haven’t seen anything focus on what President Barack Obama referred to as the UN founding charter, its mission, and that of the United States….the universal human rights of all people everywhere.
