38 Latin American Nations Sign Document Urging Radical Support for Abortion, Homosexuality

Sofia Vazquez-Mellado, Life Site News, August 27, 2013

Representatives of 38 Latin American and Caribbean countries have signed onto a document that includes language urging the region to, “Ensure . . . the availability of safe, good-quality abortion services for women with unwanted and unaccepted pregnancies.”

The document, titled the “Montevideo Consensus,” calls on governments that ban abortion “to consider amending their laws . . . relating to the voluntary termination of pregnancy in order to protect the lives and health of women and adolescent girls.”

The representatives met from August 12th to the 15th in Montevideo, the Uruguayan capital, with the stated purpose of examining the progress of the UN Cairo Conference on Population and Development held in 1994.

The document also declares that countries should “guarantee universal access to assisted fertility treatments,” and the “access to a wide range of culturally relevant, scientifically sound modern contraceptive methods, including emergency oral contraception.”

Ensuring “the effective implementation from early childhood of comprehensive sexuality education programs,” is also among the agreements the participants reached.

The meeting was organized by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), and the Uruguayan government with support from the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA). It also brought together 24 regional and international agencies and 260 non-governmental organizations.

Over 800 participants attended the meeting, which made it one of the largest intergovernmental conferences in recent years in the region, according to ECLAC.

The document also contains language that could be used to force homosexual “marriage” on the signatories, claiming that it is necessary to “promote policies that enable persons to exercise their sexual rights, which embrace the right to a safe and full sex life, as well as the right to take free, informed, voluntary and responsible decisions on their sexuality, sexual orientation and gender identity, without coercion, discrimination or violence, and that guarantee the right to information and the means necessary for their sexual health and reproductive health.”

In what seems a direct address to Costa Rica, the document also reads: “a secular State is one of the elements fundamental to the full exercise of human rights, the deepening of democracy and the elimination of all forms of discrimination.”

Costa Rica is the last and only confessional state in Latin America, as it holds the Catholic faith as official in its Constitution.

The Inter-American Commission of Human Rights has recently started putting pressure on the country to change its laws and allow abortion, In vitro fertilization, the morning-after pill and same-sex ‘marriages’. The country may face trial if it does not comply with these impositions.

    Make no mistake, this small country in Latin America is just a test-run for the rest of the world, particularly for here in eastern Europe, where you’re more likely to find people claiming they’re aliens than people that support this filth .

      Pura Vida – Pure Life – a weird little localism there. Used as a greeting.

      The revisionist liblefty wants to squeeze every last drop of individuality OR fraternity to anything other than itself. Latin American leftism can go down some strange rabbit holes. In Costa Rica’s last civil war, 1947 or 48, I believe, the Catholics actually were allied with the commies (and lost…) to a center-right free marketesque crowd. The Catholo-commies eventually came back and formed the liblefty sort of party while the sort of conservative free maketeers adopted a lot of Euro-socialist programs and got rid of the army.

      My personal doctor had once run for president as a Communist but was in private practice…good commie doctor, nice guy, no belief in the afterlife so he took care of me. Cheap too, since he had to compete with the state system (plodding but functional, it’s plodding nature making it possible for private communist physicians to make a living).

      Latin America can be a strange, baroque, magical-realist place.

        Hey, Catholicism has always denounced usury. Although its been less vocal about it since Vatican II. Usury is the root of all economic malaise, and the reason that bulit into our system, as the old saying goes, “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer”.

      The world is hugely over-populated. If humans don’t begin to do something about it themselves, nature will. It is inevitable. The calculation is mathematical and has been repeated hundreds, likely millions of times by every student in a microbiology class. The earth is the same as a petri dish; both are closed biological systems. There is a growth, long stable period, followed by a steep decline, when nutrients are disappearing and by products of life overwhelm that life with toxicity. People like the late scientist/science fiction writer (real science fiction) Issac Asimov and his Futurists (group that met every ten years to peer into the future), predicted what is happening in the 21st century. He also demonstrated that we are at the point in the mathematical model where a steep crash of biological life was due. So it doesn’t matter if communists or Catholics or Muslims are trying to reduce the size of the human population, especially the third world population, it’s a good idea and if it isn’t done, no one will be left, not even smart whites. But it’s too late already anyway. Hold on, it’s going to be quite a ride down!

        I’m thinking first of quality, not of quantity. If the world were overpopulated with 7 billion Whites, we would manage. We would invent new agricultural techniques, or colonize Mars, or something. We would handle it. Not so much with these worthless dark-skins .

        • me

          Whites would be just fine if we had self-determination, freedom of association, and our own country–like before, when the Marxists weren’t in charge.

          • Fr. John+

            So, what’s keeping us from doing same? Even Thomas Jefferson said rebellion against a corrupt Gov’t was both necessary and legitimate. And the Obamanation certainly is corrupt, AND racist to the core…..

      • me

        I’m sure all of the illegals and ‘diverse’ imports by our govt. are all given a clean bill of health, like they did at Ellis Island….NOT. It’s just a matter of time before some formerly-controlled disease, like smallpox, will decimate the USA, Europe, Australia, and any other formerly-White country.

      • Alexandra1973

        No, we are not overpopulated.
        The average birth rate world wide was 1.8 twenty years ago. Replacement level is about 2.2.
        We have the NWO types pushing homosexuality, abortion, and euthanasia. They only want so many people around.
        Abortion is completely wrong. However, should this country once again determine abortion to be murder, it should be done at the same time we’re deporting third-worlders back to their countries.

        • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

          I am talking about total world population. And if you dispute that, you are arguing against both biological and mathematical science.

          If it there were only whites on the earth, there would be plenty of room.

  • Puggg

    All those family values that don’t stop that the Rio Grande. Aren’t they?

    I read on QD’s blog a story about how some Catholic Bishops are having second thoughts about wanting to import these people to boost moral values. Maybe they read articles like these.

      Push this stuff onto the RC clergy if it is likely to discourage their immigration mania.

    “Conservative Hispanic family values” my butt. There is a reason why Hispanic females are stereotyped as being sexually promiscuous at a very young age.

    • Sacramento County, California wants to give out free testing kits for certain STDs to the “young women” (read: mamacitas) of the county, because chlamydia and gonorrhea are running rampant.

      • Erasmus

        Don’t you know the United States is a better place with lots of mamacitas with raging chlamydia and gonorrhea infections?

        BTW, I’ve already seen several girls with the name “Melena,” can “Chlamydia” and “Gonorrhea” be far behind as popular names with a nice multi-cultural ring to them?

      • White Mom in WDC

        So much for chaste and pure Latin Catholic girls saving it for marriage.
        Must have gotten STDs from the toilet seat

          Hard to imagine a group that dresses in a more slutty manner than young mestizos.

      • Stentorian_Commentator

        Well, you know what a quinceniera is? It’s a combination fifteenth birthday party and baby shower. Waa, waa, wahhhh . . . .

        • From what I understand, the quince is more of an availability advertisement than anything. Open for business, if you catch my drift.

    • jeffaral

      We must take into account that Latin Americans, like blacks, sexually mature at an younger age. Having babies at 12-13 is quite common. No wonder the Pope is quite happy with his Latino brethren: multiply, multiply, multiply…..

    • stantonlore

      I think young hispanic boys have a good deal to do with how promiscuous hispanic girls are. More hispanic gangs than other races and where there are boys there will be girls, claiming gang affiliation.

    moderater..next time i see you post i am giving you a thumbs down for deleting or removing my post no matter how well stated your comment is.

    Alternately… We could just sterilize the lot of ’em.

    I wish the black ghetto thugs who mugged me had been aborted.

      Hey, where is your sense of Christian camaraderie? Just kidding.

      In all seriousness, though, the Catholic church is in favor of amnesty for illegals in the US.

      I’ve met many a Catholic/Christian Identity nationalist, and to those people I say: choose. You can either follow a Jewish cult, lead by (regardless whether catholic or protestant) the worst progressive, universalist types around, or you can choose your people and give up that filthy foreign religion.

      Think about what Christian dogma did to the Romans, and that it is doing the exact same thing to us now.

      Progressives, even atheist progressives, are almost entirely Christian in their morality.

        You must though acknowledge that in matters of rape the Bible gives good guidance. For instance: “If your daughter or wife is raped sell her to the rapist”, (Deuteronomy 28). Sound advice eh?

        • Alexandra1973

          I just read through that chapter–King James version. Sounds to me what will happen to Israel if they don’t obey God. I don’t see rape mentioned.

        • ed

          Fantastic advice.

          Christianity has little in common with the Western soul, and does nothing to promote the spiritual growth of our people. It is a religion of ignorance and weakness.

  • bigone4u

    Found this on the blonde on a mission blog (her mission is race realism).

  • Anan7

    Why isn’t the USA considered a Hispanic nation now?

    • jeffaral

      Good question!

  • Nick A Siggers

    Abortion and homosexuality in hispanic or black communities are the least of my worries.

  • ed

    Christianity is foreign, and that is reason enough to purge it.

    I can’t imagine the old cults of Odin or Thor going down this road. Can you?

    We need strength from our religion, not “turn the other cheek”, and “the meek shall inherit the earth”. Christian principles are leading us to ruin. It’s that simple.

  • John Smith

    If the president doesn’t respect America’s views on marriage, what makes us think he would respect other countries’? Certainly not his latest USAID project. In April, to relatively little fanfare, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) embarked on one of the most shocking abuses of taxpayer dollars in the last five years. With help from the Levi Strauss Foundation and millionaire liberal Tim Gill, the U.S. government is spending $11 million to train homosexual activists in other countries.

    The Washington Blade, D.C.’s gay newspaper, praised the Obama administration for creating an army of international lobbyists for same-sex “marriage,” anti-discrimination laws, and homosexual “rights” around the world. According to USAID, the first phase of the program is focused on countries with a strong Catholic influence: Ecuador, Honduras, Guatemala, and other developing nations that oppose homosexuality.

    This week, the first in a series of USAID “gay trainings” took place in Colombia, a nation specifically targeted for its rejection of same-sex “marriage.” The goal, an agency spokesman says, is to teach people how to infiltrate the political process and advocate for laws that a majority of Americans, who are paying for the program, object to. “It can be a real game-changer in the advancement of LGBT human rights,” she insisted. In essence, U.S. taxpayers are being forced to groom the next generation of the world’s Human Rights Campaigns — a stunning exploitation of Americans’ money, and more importantly, their trust.

      I recommend they begin operations in Russia.

    While it can be argued that the apostate Western White nations led the way, for all actions are inherently religious- it just matters WHICH religion the populace is believing) I am not overly surprised that nations that once held human sacrifice as normative (Mayans, Aztecs, etc.) would even flinch at both the cavalier treatment of the unborn, as well as the legalization of perversion in sodomite unions. They’re just reverting back to their pagan ancestor’s past. Now, in Europe and the White West, it’s different. It’s downright apostasy.

    • Pelagian

      You’re right … that looks pretty much like a racial propensity to align oneself with the Devil. Yet, the pre-Vat II church understood this propensity and had a system of faith in these countries that was designed to make sure that Christian baptism bore fruit unto salvation. The Vatican II reforms took the lid off of that and the result is fewer Catholics and fewer Catholic laws.
