New Attack on Irelands pro-life laws by pro-abortion NGO
The pro-abortion NGO, Human Rights Watch today issued a report entitled “A State of Isolation” on the lack of access to abortion in Ireland, in which they accuse the Irish Government of violating so called "human rights" in its treatment of abortion and related issues including "health, information, privacy, freedom from cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, life, equal protection under the law, and non-discrimination ".
The report says the Irish Government have been "erratic and divisive" in the face of the "need for abortion" and it calls for a change to its restrictive abortion laws to meet its obligations under international law.
This report is dishonest in that its authors know full well that there is no such thing as a right to abortion under international law. The report is therefore more about trying to create such aright by exerting pressure on the Irish Government to permit the slaughter of the youngest and most vulnerable members of the human family in Ireland.
