UN LGBT Czar Attacks America on Transgender Issues
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 16 (C-Fam) The UN Czar for homosexual and transgender ideology attacked the U.S. Supreme Court and pro-life and pro-family Americans in his latest human rights report.
The report condemns the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade as a “devastating action for the human rights of lesbian and bisexual women, as well as trans men and other gender diverse persons with gestational faculties.”
The report links the abortion industry and the expensive health complex that sustains homosexual and transgender lifestyles. It is often the same clinics that provide abortions, transgender hormone protocols, and artificial insemination and surrogacy for homosexual couples to contract children, according to the report.
The report complains that restrictions on abortions have shut down “clinics that are critical sources of sexual and reproductive health care for LGBT persons: contraception and abortion services, wellness services, examinations, STI (sexually transmitted infections) testing and treatment, hormone replacement therapy and insemination services.”
The report also denounces a “veritable plague of anti-LGBT bills sweeping across the nation.”
“I am deeply concerned by a widespread set of State-level actions aimed at regression of the human rights of LGBT people by legislative, executive, and judicial action,” states Victor Madrigal-Borloz, the UN independent expert on violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Madrigal-Borloz referred specifically to pro-family policies in Florida, Texas, and Alabama. These include laws and policies to shield children from homosexual and transgender propaganda in schools, laws banning transgender hormone protocols and sex change operations for children, and policies that ban boys from competing as girls in girls’ sports.
The report showered praise on the Biden administration for fighting these State level efforts and their work to promote homosexual and transgender issues through an “intersectional approach that includes sexual orientation and gender identity.”
The Biden administration has challenged State laws and policies in federal courts and has threatened to withhold federal meal funding to 22 states that do not allow homosexual and transgender issues in meal programs.
“The Biden-Harris administration has adopted powerful and meaningful actions that are in conformity with international human rights law,” says the report.
The Harvard law professor said the Biden administration’s efforts to promote homosexuality and transgender ideology showed a “combination of values, knowledge, and muscle that can drive social change.”
The report calls the U.S. a “vibrant democracy” and “a land of unique opportunity” but criticizes America for “deep grooves carved by colonialism and slavery, as well as – until relatively recently – criminalization of same-sex intimacy and pathologization of LGBT persons.”
The report also attacks conscience protections and religious exemptions. Madrigal-Borloz said that a meeting with religious leaders led him to the conclusion that religious exemptions are a “misuse of religious narratives.”
Madrigal-Borloz published the report following a country visit to the United States this Summer. He is the first of several UN experts invited by the Biden administration to assess the U.S. human rights record.
“I consider it an honor that my visit is carried out as part of this reintegration to the international human rights architecture,” said Madrigal-Borloz.
