    Two tiny countries have taken on the United Nations, defending unborn children and the traditional family. The Third Committee of the General Assembly met recently to discuss Malta and Fiji's stances on the issues. Although UN officials deny it, some countries are being strong-armed into taking courses contrary to their culture, their religion, and their own laws. Piero Tozzi of Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, or C-FAM, was present for both speeches at the session. "The nation of Malta gave a very strong speech in which [the representative] spoke about abortion and how Malta is a pro-life nation and they would not be bullied on their laws respecting life," Tozzi explains. Malta's ambassador, Saviour F. Borg, noted that abortion is still illegal in his country and any position regarding "women empowerment and gender equality" should not be used to make anyone consider abortion as a valid form of "reproductive health rights." http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=303726
