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?
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?
