Want to sign a pro-life petition to the UN?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Oct 21, 2008

The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute has joined with other pro-life groups in the US and abroad in a petition to the UN, calling for protection for the unborn. The petition asks the UN member-states to interpret the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as conferring the right to life on unborn children. The petition will be presented to UN officials on December 10, the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In just 3 weeks, the organizers of this petition drive have collected more than 45,000 signatures. They hope eventually to reach 100,000. If you'd like to be counted in that number, you can find the petition online here.
