Leading United Nations Abortion Advocate a Prof at a Pontifical Catholic University

The United Nations pushes abortion rights. In an article by John-Henry Westen, he writes in his first paragraph (for LifeSiteNews.com) that "Silvia Pimentel, has distinguished herself as one of the leading promoters of abortion on the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). Elected to sit on the committee in January 2005 and currently serving as Vice Chair, Pimentel is one of the 23 'experts' on the UN body which monitors compliance with the UN convention of the same name."

Emphasis is mine. See the connection? "Eliminate discrimination of women and abortion." Get it? If you do, please let me know.
"While it may not be surprising that a CEDAW committee member encourages countries to permit abortion, even though abortion does not fall within the UN committee's mandate, the fact that Pimentel is a Professor of Legal Philosophy at the Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo is raising eyebrows."
"In the most recent round of CEDAW committee meetings which ended last week, the UN body took up compliance reports and made recommendations on eight countries. During the meetings concerning Togo and Thailand, Pimentel promoted abortion."
