Rights and Dignity

There is a petition from C-Fam, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute calling for the UN to support the Rights and Dignity
of the Human Person and the Family, specifically these points:

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person (Article 3)

Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family (Article 16).

The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State (Article 16).

Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance (Article 25).

Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children (Article 26).

So, please click here and add your name to the half a million already there, all these rights are being eroded. Thanks to Mike Telford for letting me know about the petition.
