The wonderfully enlightened organization, the U.N., is taking a break from picking on the Jewish state of Israel to pick on the largely Catholic state of Northern Ireland for its laws against abortion.
According to LifeSiteNews, “the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) said that Northern Ireland is violating women’s rights by restricting their access to abortion.”
Northern Ireland is under the rulership of the United Kingdom, but unlike the U.K., Northern Ireland allows abortion only when the mother’s life is physically endangered.
“Denial of abortion and criminalization of abortion amounts to discrimination against women because it is a denial of a service that only women need. And it puts women in horrific situations,” stated CEDAW spokeswoman Ruth Halperin-Kaddari.
Halperin-Kaddari claims that the pro-life laws in Northern Ireland “constitute(s) violence against women that may amount to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.”
Northern Ireland rejects the slander and pointed out to the U.N. that women who want abortions for whatever reason can get one in the U.K.
The U.N. has played this card against pro-life nations before, even attacking the Vatican’s pro-life stance as “psychological torture” against women.
According to the Washington Examiner, in 2014, the United Nations Committee Against Torture said at a meeting in Geneva that the Catholic Church is guilty of forcing women into having “dangerous abortions.”
The U.N. also questioned the negative effect the church’s anti-abortion stance has had on women’s minds, saying the “restrictions amount to psychological torture.”
“They are almost blaming the Catholic Church for unsafe abortions,” said Ashley E. McGuire of the group Catholic Voices USA. “The church doesn’t believe there is anything as a safe abortion.”
In January of that same year, the Committee for the Rights of the Child issued a report blasting the church for its past sex scandals and commanded they drop their stance on abortion, contraception, and gay marriage.
“Abortion is among the most egregious forms of torture that can be perpetrated against a child, and attacking the church’s moral and religious beliefs violates the religious liberty of the church, a human right which the United Nations affirms. Yet, the U.N. Committee Against Torture seems to be setting the stage that if you are pro-life you are pro-torture,” said McGuire. “There is a strong bias against the Vatican.”
Conclusion: the United Nations hates Jews and Catholics.
