THE IRON PEN by Daniel Hite

USA at the UN

When I was at the UN last week, several in our delegation heard Sec. of State Hillary Clinton speak to the entire Conference on the Status of Women (CSW). As you may know, we were there lobbying with a pro-life, pro-family message.  If you do not already know or suspect, the policy of the current US administration is pro-abortion as well as very weak on traditional family values and structure.  We saw firsthand at the UN how the USA is leading the charge for reproductive rights and other controversial issues.  This makes it very difficult for small, undeveloped and developing nations that have taken a stand for traditional family and life issues.  They can be pressured in many ways by nations of means to be supportive or silent to the anti-life/anti-family agenda. In the UN consensus process, silence is consent. So that you will not think that this is conservative spin on this situation, I have linked a Youtube video of Sec. Clinton testifying before a Congressional committee  last year on this administration’s foreign policy objectives regarding these issues. This administrative policy extends to the work of the US delegation to the UN. In the video, the simple answer to Congressman Smith’s question to Sec. Clinton is “yes, yes, yes” without any reservation or apology. It is this kind of hubris, resolve, and aggressive tactics that characterize the opposition. Judge for yourself:

God help us.  He is the only One who can confound the counsel of the enemy. (Isa. 19:2,3)  Pray for the pro-life/pro-family coalition that battles these issues in the UN conferences, treaty formations, and personal work with delegations. Their work goes on throughout the year, behind the scenes, unnoticed, quietly, but intensely.
