The Lancet, known for its medical journal, and highly esteemed at the United Nations, has released a new report, “Our future: a Lancet commission on adolescent health and well-being”, through which it addresses the health of adolescents, the group who “will be the policy makers of 2030”, the year the SDGs conclude.
The report begins by acknowledging that today’s youth are the “largest generation of 10 to 24 year olds in human history” reflecting concerns by population control elites for the reproductive potential of what is called the “youth bulge”.
Access to abortion is cited throughout the report and listed under various categories. Abortion is described as an ‘essential health-care response’ for all girls with the report declaring, “Health services should provide all essential health-care responses, including modern contraception and safe abortion regardless of age, marital, and socioeconomic status; providers should have the skills to provide confidential and non-judgmental care.”
Abortion is included as ‘accessible preventive health care’ which is described as: “Care should include guarantees of preventive care to all sexually active adolescents, maternal health care when necessary, and access to affordable modern contraception, particularly long-acting reversible contraceptives; if unwanted pregnancy does occur provide access to legal, safe abortion.”
Abortion is also listed as a ‘health service intervention’ detailed as: “Health service interventions involve the provision of information and counselling, contraception, prenatal and postnatal care and delivery, abortion services and post-abortion care, treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections, HIV testing and counselling, and care for sexual and gender-based violence.”
PNCI notes that it is regrettable that the Lancet commission does not hesitate in promoting access to abortion, an act, more than any other action, that negatively impacts a country’s development by eliminating its very future, its children.
