Leading global pro-abortion advocates speak at Vatican conference

5 May 2015

UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon addressed a Vatican workshop last week

Two of the world's leading pro-abortion advocates addressed a workshop at the Vatican last week. Ban-Ki Moon, the UN Secretary-General, and Jeffrey Sachs, the prominent environmentalist, participated at a workshop on environmental issues.

Voice of the Family issued a statement expressing its "grave concern" at their involvement, especially "in anticipation of the new papal encyclical on the environment." [Voice of the Family, 28 April] Following the workshop, a statement signed by the heads of both the Pontifical Academy of Science (PAS) and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS) endorsed the UN’s proposed creation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As a result, the PAS and PASS will be endorsing abortion and the violation of parental rights. Voice of the Family called on both Pontifical Academies to strongly reject the UN’s population control agenda, which is being pursued under the cover of protecting the environment.
