Thank Hungary for promoting family at the UN!
UPDATE: On March 10, we delivered 22,664 signatures to the Hungarian Secretary of State for Family Katalin Novák and Hungarian Ambassador to the United Nations Katalin Bogyay! They were impressed by the massive outpouring of grassroots support for their work to protect the family at the United Nations.
Hungary has taken an important role in promoting marriage and life at the United Nations... and they deserve our thanks!
On Friday, December 5, CitizenGO joined Hungary at the United Nations to sponsor the Political Network for Values' Transatlantic Summit on the role of the family in sustainable global development!
Mr. Zoltan Balog, the Hungarian Minister for Human Capacities, told participants that "family is the most important national resource of Hungary.” He said that the Hungarian constitution is committed to marriage between one man and one woman, since it is the best structure for children.
Mr. Balog also told the Summit that Hungary is working to defend the personhood of all human beings, from the moment of conception. He quoted from the new Hungarian constitution, which says: "Human dignity shall be inviolable. The fetus shall be protected from the moment of conception."
This was a major international victory, as we were able to join Hungary in bringing together so many policy-makers who support family and life! It was a breath-taking success!
More than 60 parliamentarians from 20 countries in Africa, South America, North America, and Europe came together to sign the "Declaration on the Rights of the Family," which affirms that “family is the natural and fundamental unit of society” and that "everyone has the inherent right to life, commencing from the moment of conception until natural death.”
Hungary's support for marriage and personhood was vital! In fact, they delivered the Declaration to the U.N. Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon!
Will you join CitizenGO in extending a warm thanks to the Hungarian Mission to the United Nations? Their stand for the family deserves to be recognized. Sign the petition to send a "thank you" to their Ambassador to the U.N., Minister Balog, and the Hungarian Secretary of State.
