UN committee overstepped mandate in pro-abortion attack on Catholic Church

6 February 2014

SPUC is a key pro-life lobbying organisation at the UN in New York and Geneva

A United Nations (UN) committee on the Rights of the Child overstepped its mandate in its pro-abortion attack on the Catholic Church, said lobbyists for the SPUC at the UN.

SPUC was responding to a report published by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child which attacked the Catholic Church's teachings on abortion, contraception and homosexuality, under the guise of a critique of the Church's handling of child sex abuse cases.

SPUC is recognised officially by the UN at a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and provides most of the pro-life lobbying efforts at the UN institutions in New York and Geneva. [SPUC, 5 February]
