UN, World: Vatican refuses to sign document on protecting the disabled: aborting children to get rid of disabled does not prevent discrimination

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. EWTN News 05/Dec/2008)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The Holy See is is not in agreement with a UN document, which they contributed to: due to the fact that vital parts are excluded, and other acts are unwisely, or politically: allowed. The document includes parts still allowing for killing off, sterializing, or selectively aborting those with disabilities. All of these would be called genocide: if the world would acknowlege that the young and disabled are truly a section of humaniy, as much as hair colour, or race or belief allows for a group to be named as a valid population group.

The Vatican believes that killing disabled people will not cure the problem of discriminating against them. The actual issues were pointed out by the president of a Christian group in Italy: applauding the Catholic City State's choice not to sign the document. 23b and 25a, are the issues pointed out by the "Christians for Service" association.

Comments by the Vatican itself, are only indirectly hinted at by EWTN. Their reasons for not signing however seem to be due to the ideologically motivated flaws in the document. Their refusal followed a request to allow for additional clauses to close off the possibility of such genocide or "euthanasia" against the disabled.
