· A meeting of the High-Level Political Forum on the Sustainable Development Goals, in which Poland, among others, participates, is taking place in New York.
· The subject of its deliberations will be some of the goals set out in the Agenda 2030 framework.
· The Agenda 2030 program has been the subject of much controversy due to, among other things, the pushing of so-called reproductive and sexual rights.
· UN independent expert Viktor Mardigal-Borloz has published a report on the relationship between freedom of religion and conscience and protection from violence and discrimination based on "sexual orientation" and "gender identity."
· The report was presented at the 53rd session of the UN Human Rights Council.
· The publication is the result of work carried out by the expert, as well as opinions submitted by stakeholders.
· The Ordo Iuris Institute has made its fourth appeal to the Office of the President of the Republic of Poland to oppose international recognition of abortion as a human right.
· Ordo Iuris points out that UN resolutions moving in this direction could become a binding international law norm for states, obliging them to expand access to abortion.
· The UN Independent Expert on Protection against Violence and Discrimination on the basis of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity is gathering information from states and civil society on how the protection of freedom of religion or belief affects the freedom of "sexual orientation" and "gender identity."
·The information gathered will be used to compile a report to be presented at the 53rd session of the UN Human Rights Council in June 2023.
The Office of the President of the Republic of Poland has responded to an appeal by Ordo Iuris, in which the Institute points out that the UN General Assembly resolution on violence against women could be a tool to pressure states to position the so-called right to abortion as a human right. Before and after the document's adoption, the Institute issued appeals to the President highlighting the dangers of the resolution and calling for opposition to the UN's imposed interpretation of human rights.
The UN General Assembly's Third Committee has adopted a draft resolution on preventing violence against women, stating that "access to safe abortion" is to be part of "the human rights of all women." There is no doubt that a powerful lobby at the UN is pushing for the comprehensive inclusion of abortion in the human rights system - against the majority of countries in the world! Characteristically, abortion is combined with extreme ideology in the draft. In just 14 pages of the resolution, the word "gender" appears as many as 80 times.
