Tell Council of Europe: Ireland Does Not Need Your Abortion Agenda

Once again, Ireland has received advice from an international foreign body telling the Irish people how best to run their own country. This time the Council of Europe’s Human Rights Commissioner, Nils Muiznieks, has said that Ireland must make progress towards a legal abortion regime that is “more respectful of the human rights of women”.

As usual, the Commissioner is

• ignoring Irish law and culture which rightly respects both the life of the mother and her son/daughter in her womb
• setting up a false conflict between the pregnant woman and her son/daughter
• utterly failing to respect the human rights of the unborn women, whilst trumpeting the alleged rights of born women
• attempting to set a precedent by assuming that there is such a thing as a human right to abortion, which does not exist in any internationally recognised legal framework.

Furthermore, the Commissioner is also being extremely patronising in his recommendations and ignoring the sovereignty of the Irish nation which continues to have an excellent maternal health record.

Ireland does not need abortion. The damage it causes to women and their son/daughter does not help anyone.

Please sign this petition to Nils Muiznieks, telling him to cease interfering in such a profoundly unhelpful manner.

Regarding Abortion in Ireland

Dear Council of Europe Human Rights Commissioner, Mr. Nils Muiznieks,

I find your declaration that Ireland needs to change its abortion laws so that it is “more respectful of the human rights of women”, not only deeply offensive and patronising, but also confused and lacking any basis in (legal) reality

As you well know, there is no human right to abortion to be found anywhere in international law, European law and certainly not in Irish law. This is no surprise as such a law would be profoundly contradictory, discriminatory and thus, no law at all.

In this respect, I must ask: when you refer to the “human rights of women”, to which women do you refer? The born ones or the unborn ones? And why not both?

As is well known, there are over 100 million “missing” women in India and China due to sex selective abortion and female infanticide. Are you concerned at all about the human rights of these women?

I respect the human rights of women both before and after birth and it is not clear to me why you do not.

Ireland continues to have an excellent maternal health record and I, and many other Irish people, are sick of international bodies, such as the one you represent, telling us how far behind the times we are, and how we need to do more to help women.

I would greatly appreciate it if you would cease making such patronising and profoundly unhelpful recommendations. I ask you to respect our national sovereignty and to stop promoting your abortion agenda here. Instead, I ask you to encourage the state to promote change which is genuinely helpful for pregnant women such as

1) offering psychological and medial support for those suffering from depression and other medical problems in pregnancy

2) providing financial aid for those genuinely in need during pregnancy

3) promoting adoption in a neutral non-stigmatising manner

4) promoting charities which aim to help women in crisis pregnancies through means other than abortion

5) offering post-abortion counselling for those suffering as a result of having had or participated in an abortion.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
