People who live in glass houses

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, which has instructed the Vatican on proper treatment of children, includes representatives from Ghana, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Russia, and Sri Lanka.

Would you rather have your child raised at the Vatican or in one of those countries?

The UN committee, which criticized the Vatican for discrimination against girls, includes members from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Egypt.

How well are girls treated in those countries?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
