Here is a petition emailed to me related to the thread title. They hope to achieve 100,000 signatures.
Defend the Vatican at the UN.
Why This Petition?
The Holy See is under renewed attack by powerful forces that intend to silence the voice of the Vatican at the United Nations. The Vatican has the status of Observer State at the UN, which allows it to negotiate documents. In this capacity, it has used its voice to prevent an right to abortion and defend human life and the family.
These forces wanting the Vatican out at the UN include the most powerful non-governmental organizations in the world including International Planned Parenthood Federation, Marie Stopes International, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States).
