A proposal from the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Committee is pushing for the passing of legislation that they say is “aimed at keeping the country in line with an international treaty on civil and political rights”. The report on this was published by the Philippine Star last November 5, 2022.
Some of the legislative reforms being proposed by the UN panel include the following:
- Repealing of criminal penalties imposed on women and girls who undergo abortion and the medical providers who help them do so.
- Guarantee access to safe, legal, and effective access to abortion
- Legalization of divorce
- Comprehensive anti-discrimination bills
Editor’s Note: Anyone who is abreast with what is happening globally should realize that these are all issues being raised by the woke community. Unfortunately, the good intentions behind these policies have been undermined.
Our lawmakers should be careful about copy-pasting provisions from other countries if we do not want to experience the cultural wars happening in the West.
We also want to say that there is no authority that can dictate to the Philippines what it must do, not even the United Nations. We hope that our leaders have at least learned enough to know when our country’s sovereignty is being impinged upon by these international organizations which are not accountable to the citizens of this country.
