Vatican delegate objects to gender ideology in UN development document

By September 3, 2015 No Comments

Commenting on a UN development plan, the Vatican’s representative has taken exception to language that promotes access to abortion, contraception, and gender ideology.
Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the Holy See’s permanent observer at UN headquarters in New York, also emphasized that development problems and environmental concerns must be weighed in light of the overarching demands of human dignity. He reminded UN delegates that Pope Francis, in his encyclical Laudato Si’, had emphasized that “environmental problems cannot be separated from the analysis of human, family, work-related and urban contexts, nor from how individuals relate to themselves, which leads in turn to how they relate to others and to the environment.”
