Charter of the Rights of the Family

Readers will be aware that SPUC has been campaigning to uphold marriage. SPUC has a position paper, and a background paper. There has also been several posts about this issue on the SPUC Director's blog, including a recently signed joint letter that was published in The Sunday Telegraph. Another post detailed the recent attempt by the pro-LGBT lobby at the European Parliament, which successfully and covertly carried a resolution that included support for same-sex civil partnerships and same-sex marriage. We also had a post on this blog about why SPUC defends traditional marriage, and another on the sad effect abortion had on one couple's marriage. recently, we had a post on this blog about the UN Doha Declaration on the Family. As a follow up, here is the Charter of the Rights of the Family.

Amongst the many excellent points contained the this charter, are the following taken from the Preamble: 
  • The family is based on marriage, that intimate union of life in complementarity between a man and a woman which is constituted in the freely contracted and publicly expressed indissoluble bond of matrimony and is open to the transmission of life.
  • marriage is the natural institution to which the mission of transmitting life is exclusively entrusted.
  • The family, a natural society, exists prior to the State or any other community, and possesses inherent rights which are inalienable
