Pro-abortion NGOs [Non-Governmental Organizations] petitioned UN officials to officially mark and designate September 28 as ‘UN International Safe Abortion Day’.

September 28 is a date that has been used by pro-abortion activists to protest pro-life laws and stage events promoting abortion since 1990.

The Open Letter states that the purpose of an official UN day for so-called ‘safe abortion’ is “to send a strong signal to the international community and to all our governments, with a simple but highly symbolic statement of support for safe abortion.”

The letter is filled with pro-abortion falsehoods and arguments.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon received his letter in person, delivered by Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi from South Africa, the Special Envoy on Gender of the African Development Bank. The letter was also addressed to the heads of UN Women, UN Development Programme, World Health Organization, UN Population Fund, UN Children’s Fund, UNAIDS, and UNESCO.
