UN "World Survey" seeks women's equality and development through sterilization, abortion and population control.

The new UN report on women makes for grim reading, if you can decipher it. The reason that you may have trouble doing so is that the report, called the World Survey on the Role of Women in Development 2014: Gender Equality and Sustainable Development, is written in a kind of code. Words and expressions are used that sound reasonable – what could be wrong with “gender equality,” for example? – but which, in the femspeak used by the UN, actually have quite radical and subversive meanings that are lost on the general public.

There is a reason for this linguistic deception. Properly understood, this World Survey – the first published in five years – is nothing less than a battle plan for a deadly assault on life and marriage. If its recommendations were to be fully adopted by UN’s member states and carried out, it would mean the end of families as we know them, and a top-to-bottom restructuring of societies and economies as a whole.

If these revolutionary goals were clearly stated, the public outcry would be deafening, and resistance would grow. So UN bureaucrats disguise their true goals by using code words that only they and other progressives, who are also in the know, can understand.

Let me translate some of the World Survey’s recommendations back into plain, straightforward, unambiguous English, so you can better understand the road down which the UN wants to take us.

“Reproductive health” = Sterilization Campaigns

The phrase “reproductive health,” littered throughout the document, sounds unobjectionable. But it is actually a double deception, since it has nothing to do with reproduction and nothing to do with health. The goal of “reproductive health” programs is actually population control – reducing the birth rate by chemically or surgically disabling as many female reproductive systems as possible. For example, when the report says:

Respect, protect and promote sexual and reproductive health and rights for all, particularly women and girls, across the life cycle; (page 113)

This should be read to mean that women and girls are to encouraged to contracept, sterilize, and abort their children. The reason why this “recommendation” is included in the section “On sustainable development,” is that it is really about limiting population growth.

“Sustainable” = Limit, Restrict

Whenever you read the word sustainable, as in “Sustainable Development” or “Sustainable Population” you should substitute the words “limit” or “restrict.” For example, when the report says:

"Ground sustainable population policies in sexual and reproductive health and rights, including the provision of universally accessible quality sexual and reproductive health services …" (page 114)  

It actually means something like, “Population control policies should be based on the promotion of sterilization and abortion.”

“Safe abortion” = Abortion on Demand

Safe abortion sounds more woman-friendly than simply saying abortion. But it is used within the UN system to refer to the legalization of abortion on demand. So when you read:

"
Ground sustainable population policies in sexual and reproductive health and  rights, including the provision of universally accessible … comprehensive sexuality education and safe abortion;" (page 114)

You should understand this to mean that “Population control policies should be based on cradle-to-grave sex education and the legalization of abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy.”

“Gender Equality” = The End of Marriage

Under this seemingly harmless rubric – who could oppose equality between men and women? – hides a cultural revolution. For the kind of equality that UN bureaucrats have in mind would end the natural complementarity between the sexes that binds husband and wife together. Read the following sentence:

"Recognize, reduce and redistribute unpaid care work between women and men within households, and between households and the state by expanding basic services and infrastructure that are accessible to all;" (page 113)

This really means that the radical feminists at the UN are instructing the nanny state to go into homes of their married citizens and force husbands and wives to do equal amounts of cooking, cleaning, childcare, etc., regardless of their own preferences in the matter.
