The Holy See addresses the UN on the issue of "Gender"

Vatican Radio has a report on the Holy See's intervention before the "UN Human Rights Council" on "gender rights". In concluding his remarks, Archbishop Tomasi said:

We raise serious concern with attempts to define new categories, introduce new terms, or posit new rights, for special groups of people, within human rights law and instruments that already enjoy universal consensus. Such attempts pose a threat both to the universality of human rights, to national sovereignty, and to the social, cultural, and religious institutions that are working to promote and attain the common good of all members of the human family.

The full radio report can be listened to here.
