US Senate Committee Denounce Torture of Prisoners but not of Unborn?

Ken Orr

Spokesperson,

Right to Life

Are you aware that the United Nations promotes the torture of the unborn? Right to Life finds it unbelievable that the UN also proclaims that any attempts which seek to deny women the right to kill their unborn children by the violence of abortion, are in themselves a form of torture. This is patently absurd and the fact that it has been accepted within UN circles is extraordinary.

Torture is a violation of human rights and is always to be condemned. The torture of detainees by the American CIA is thus condemned. It is disappointing that Congress and indeed the international community including the New Zealand government, refuse to recognise that we have government sanctioned and funded murder of unborn children. This is institutionalised torture and is openly being practised as a matter of public policy.

The violent murder and torture inflicted on a child by tearing her arms and legs off in the womb is an unspeakable injustice. Why is there no cry of outrage from UN Committees? Why is there no cry from the victims of torture for justice. There is only the silent scream from the victims being murdered. Right to Life makes no apology for speaking up for those who have no voice and who have been tortured and murdered in our hospitals on the pretext that abortion is a health service. We demand that the New Zealand government stop the torture of the unborn, the weakest and most defenceless members of our human family.

Pro- abortion Senator Dianne Feinstein, supports partial birth abortions and the torture of the unborn. It is outrageous hypocrisy for her as chairman of the US Senate Intelligence Committee, to proclaim that the findings of the US Congress reveal in grim detail torture of CIA detainees. She said it was necessary to “confront the ugly truth and say never again.” The UN Convention Against Torture & Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, provide that no one may be subject to such treatment. Why then do UN Committees and member states not recognise that the torture of human beings begins in the womb?

The UN Committee on Torture earlier this year claimed that the Catholic Church’s position on abortion was inflicting torture on women. In 2013, the UN rapporteur on torture, in his report to the UN Human Rights Council claimed, that the denial of access to abortion is torture. Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, Apostolic Nuncio for the Holy See at Geneva early this year, in addressing the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, rejected the baseless accusations of the Committee and stated that the Holy See condemns the torture of anyone including those tortured and killed before they are born.

Why then do UN Committees continue to deny the torture of the unborn and in fact, claim that withholding access to abortion is torture imposed on women? Right to Life asks when is our government going to stop the torture of our children in their mother’s wombs?
