These explosive directives came in an official report issued by the Committee on the Rights of the Child, a committee that grilled Vatican officials for eight hours last month.
The Committee--consisting of independent experts from 18 countries including Saudi Arabia, Norway, Italy, and Spain--is charged by the UN with overseeing implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a hard-law treaty the Church ratified in 1990 and that has been ratified by every country in the world except the United States and Somalia. Every signatory country must appear before the committee to report on implementation.
The Committee specifically told the Church “to review its position on abortion which places obvious risks on the life and health of pregnant girls and to amend Canon 1398 relating to abortion with a view to identifying circumstances under which access to abortion services can be permitted.”
The Committee lamented “the negative consequences of the Holy See’s position and practices of denying access to contraception, as well as to sexual and reproductive health and information.” The Committee directed the Church “to access the serious implications of its position on adolescents’ enjoyment of highest attainable standard of health and overcome all the barriers and taboos surrounding adolescent sexuality…”http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/...rch-report
