Another reason To Leave U.N.: Contraception Basic Human Right

From the Washington Times: The radical feminists’ push for universal access to contraception went on steroids with the just-released report from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Its annual report, “The State of World Population 2012: By Choice, Not by Chance: Family Planning, Human Rights and Development,” was released in numerous languages and in more than 100 capitals around the world, including Berlin, Geneva, Madrid, Paris, Tokyo and Washington. The basic message of the report is that contraception is a “human right” that is fundamental to the “sustainable development” of nations.
Making contraception a “human right” enables the UNFPA (formerly the U.N. Fund for Population Activities) to support those people around the world who want to “transform gender attitudes and cultural barriers that impede access to and use of family planning.”…
Keep in mind, too, that the UNFPA report brands as unacceptable any and all cultural or religious objections to contraception, including sterilization, IUDs and emergency contraceptives like Plan B and Ella (which many consider to be abortifacients because they prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus).
The champion of “women’s liberation” that it is, the UNFPA nevertheless sees nothing wrong with encroaching on liberty by forcing believers around the world to give up their deeply held, long-established religious convictions in order to grant someone else’s far-fetched, newly minted “human right.”
Gee, and here I thought that having food, shelter and freedom were basic human rights.  I guess not.
And now we know where Obama and his ilk got their free contraception plans for ObamaCare (or maybe vice versa) despite objections from the religious communities.
Just another reason for the U.S. to get out of the U.N.  Seriously, other than providing jobs in New York City, what does the U.N. do for the United States?
