The link is from the "Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute." I've never heard of the organization, but their board of directors includes a member of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace... 

According to C-FAM and other organizations involved in life issues, "On December 10th, radical pro-abortion groups will present petitions asking the UN General Assembly to make abortion a universally recognized human right." The Petition is an attempt to head this off at the pass by submitting an overwhelming number of signed petitions affirming the right to life of all persons from conception to natural death, and the right of parents to educate their children and choose the kind of training they wish their children to have. 

In seeking to verify the content of the C-FAM message, I also found this (from "...the Office for the High Commissioner on Human Rights, which is responsible for overseeing treaty compliance committees, released the concluding observations of the most recent sessions of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Committee and Human Rights Committee (HRC). Both committees used the July sessions to pressure countries appearing before them to liberalize abortion laws, even though no UN human rights treaty mentions abortion." (One of the nations being pressured in this regard is Ireland.) 

So please consider signing the petition, doing a little something toward promoting the culture of life.
You can also download a pdf file of the petition (presumably to distribute it widely) and mail it in.
