Vatican Cardinal Rips United Nations for Promoting Abortion

ROME, September 16, 2004 (CWNews.com/LifeSiteNews.com) - Cardinal Renato Martino has denounced the involvement of UN agencies in promoting abortion, pointing out that this policy violations the agreement struck by UN member-states at the Cairo Conference of 1994.

The president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace told the Italian daily Avvenire that the UN member-states have a duty to restrain the activities of agencies such as the UN Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), and to control the expenditures of UN funds. He charged that the UNFPA is violating the terms of the Cairo agreement, which stipulated that "no UN agency can be allowed to promote abortion."
