ROME, November 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — With so much attention focused in recent weeks on the violation of the first commandment, further attacks on the fifth and sixth commandments have gone unnoticed in Vatican City.
In the middle of the Amazon Synod, a smaller but not insignificant gathering was also organized by the Holy See and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), directed by pro-abortion globalist and sustainable development guru, Jeffrey Sachs.

Founded by former United Nations General Secretary Ban Ki-moon in 2012, donors and partners of SDSN include the pro-abortion, pro-gender theory Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. One of Sachs’s biggest supporters over the years has also been far-left financier George Soros, who donated $50 million to his Millennium Villages Project.
The Oct. 15 Vatican youth symposium, hosted at the headquarters of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Casina Pio IV, was titled: “Intergenerational Leadership: Laudato Si’ and the Sustainable Development Goals.”
The conference, which has taken place in the Vatican for the fourth consecutive year, was designed to discuss the promoting of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), numbers 3.7 and 5.6 of which include “sexual and reproductive health services,” which is a euphemism used in the United Nations to refer to abortion and contraception.
SDG 3.7 reads: “By 2030, ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes.”
SDG 5.6 states: “Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences.” ….
