Tell the UN: Protecting the life of the unborn is not torture
This June, the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva will discuss the "Report of the Working Group on the issue of discrimination against women in law and in practice."
Although the document is appealing in some ways - it attempts to eliminate female genital mutilation, properly treat menopause and female aging, combat the feminization of poverty, and ensure proper maternal care in childbirth and postpartum - it also has several significant flaws, such as proposing the legalization of prostitution.
But above all, the document focuses on abortion. It seeks to legalize abortion, permit uncontrolled access to contraception (including emergency abortive contraception), and to indoctrinate women and children on sexual and reproductive “rights.”
A key point in the document outrageously claims that outlawing abortion is typical of a "patriarchal" culture, violates the dignity of women, threatens their health and life, and can be described as "torture".
The document states: “The Committee against Torture and the Human Rights Committee have determined that, in some cases, being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term amounts to cruel and inhuman treatment.”
The document proposes to eliminate all "restrictions" on abortion, penalties for those who practice them, bans on access to information, conscientious objection without alternatives, requirements for third party consent (husband, parents, judge, etc), mandatory periods of reflection, and limits on public insurance coverage. In other words, the document seeks to ensure unfettered access to abortion without any controls or limitations.
Sexual and reproductive health education is also proposed in the document. The curriculum should be based on science, they say, away from "taboos" and “religious stereotypes” ...
Of course, they must admit that no contraceptive is 100% effective, so it is necessary to legalize abortion "for women to have control over their own body."
Write now to the ambassadors of the UN Human Rights Council to tell them what you think. Defending the life of the unborn is not a form of torture.
