Human Rights For All Persons, Not Special Rights For Elites And Sexual Radicals
Stand with the World Congress of Families (WCF) as we push back against the elitist liberal sexual agenda and embrace the values of family and life. Sign this petition to pledge with us and to ask other human rights organizations to do the same.
Next week, thousands of people from across the globe will converge in Salt Lake City for the World Congress of Families. The individuals and organizations in attendance will listen to speakers and dialogue together to strengthen the international defense of the family and life.
This year's World Congress of Families pledge states that we will defend the original principles of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This is a pledge of non-violence, justice, diversity, and true tolerance:
"We pledge to respect and uphold the dignity, sanctity, intrinsic value, and human rights (as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - United Nations, 1948) of every human life from conception to natural death."
WCF is challenging other so-called human rights and civil rights organizations of the world (including Human Rights Campaign, Amnesty International, and Southern Poverty Law Center) to sign this pledge and also protect the basic human rights of all people.
If these organizations refuse, it will confirm their capitulation to the Sexual Revolution and their support for elitist campaigns that support "special rights" for sexual radicals over policies that help children, women, families and religious believers fight poverty, disease, corruption, persecution, and abuse.
The World Congress of Families is committed to upholding the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as adopted by the United Nations in 1948 and to rejecting special rights and privileges for elites or narrow interest groups.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948, was the result of the experience in the Second World War. The first line of the UDHR states "the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is generally agreed to be the foundation of international human rights law. It represents the universal recognition that basic rights and fundamental freedoms are inherent to all human beings.
- In Article 3, the UDHR defends the right to life by saying that “everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”
- Article 6 says that, ”everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.”
- Article 18 defends the right to freedom of thought and religion by explaining that “everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”
- Article 16 unequivocally states that, ”Family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State." Article 16 also states that "Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and found a family.”
- Article 25 states that "motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance,” and that "parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given their children."
The UDHR mentions sex (defined as the two biological sexes, male and female) as entitled to equal human rights without distinction. The UDHR does not speak to the rights of sexual behavior or sexual gratification.
Please pledge with us to defend the UDHR and sign this petition to thank the Salt Lake City conference organizers for their efforts to defend life and the family. This petition will be delivered, in person, to the organizers of the conference, to show that the international community stands with the World Congress of Families.
