The UN Human Rights Committee has thrown away whatever little remained of its prestige and credibility by issuing a new draft for a General Comment on Article 6 (Right to Life) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights that explicitly excludes unborn children from being holders of that rights. The move, which is ontologically and legally flawed, has been made to suggest to the public that mothers may kill their unborn children in good conscience.
The UN Human Rights Committee has no authority to legislate, nor does it have any judicial powers. However, due to the prestige it once possessed, its interpretive “General Comments” are often referred to when interpreting the scope and meaning of human rights.
A second reading of the text is likely to take place in March.

Following the introduction of sodo-“marriage” through a referendum in 2015, the – logical next step for the promoters of the culture of death in Ireland is to seek to overturn the explicit constitutional protection for unborn life in the Irish Constitution. To this purpose, the government has set up an ideologically biased so-called “Citizens’ Assembly”, which, consisting mainly of radical anti-life activists – has come up with the recommendation that the Eighth Constitutional Amendment, which obliges the State to protect and vindicate the life of unborn children, should be overturned. Such a step backward in human rights protection would be loudly applauded by the mass media and many politicians in Ireland and abroad – yet even now, even after the moral aberration of sodo-“marriage” has been accepted, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, an openly declared homosexual, feels unsure whether the electorate will go along when it comes to legalizing abortion.
The referendum is expected to take place in March or April 2018.
Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi. While the liberal left in Europe is in a never-ending state of moral panic over the US Administration’s decision to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, or over Russia’s and Hungary‘s respective decisions to exercise a somewhat tighter control over foreign-funded NGOs (which more often than not are George Soros’s or the European Commission’s sock-puppets), Sweden has now announced its own anti-NGO gag rule, pledging to stop giving aid to any organisations that “neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations”.

It seems that at last some politicians in Europe are waking up to realize that something has gone seriously wrong with the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), an institution that in radical contradiction to its mandate is turning into the most dangerous threat to human rights in Europe. MEPs from 15 EU Member States have today published an open letter in which they criticize the Court for its Inadmissibility Decision in the case of Charles Gard and Others v. the United Kingdom (Application no. 39793/17), expressing their “deepest concerns about the outrageous outcome of Charlie’s case, which infringes Europe’s most fundamental values, particularly the right to life, the right to human dignity and personal integrity.” Continue reading “MEPs condemn Human Rights Court for “infringing Europe’s most fundamental values””
Europe’s most dangerous anti-human-rights institution, otherwise known as the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), has released yet another incredible decision through which it totally undermines both the human rights that it should be protecting, and by consequence its own position as a guardian of those rights.
The Decision in the case of Charles Gard and Others v. the United Kingdom (Application no. 39793/17), issued by an (unidentified) “majority” of the seven judges of the Court’s First Chamber (so that the public will never know who is responsible…) has declared inadmissible the complaint of two parents who wanted to protect their child from being euthanized in a UK hospital. The Court found that it was “in the best interest” of the child, which had been diagnosed with a very rare and severe mitochondrial disease, to be left to die, and that the persons who were entitled to make that decision were the doctors, not the parents. As a result of this decision, all life-sustaining treatment (supply of water and nutrition) has been stopped, and the parents have been left to watch their child being starved to death. Continue reading “Human Rights Court allows the forcible “euthanizing” of a child!”
Poland’s President Andrzej Duda has signed into law a bill that restricts the use of the (until now freely available) so-called “morning-after” pill by subjecting it to medical prescription. Pro-abortion fanatics (picture) are enraged, as this is an (albeit small) step into the right direction. Continue reading “Poland restricts (but fails to prohibit) use of “morning-after” abortion pill”
Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny is coming closer to his objective of destroying the moral texture of Irish society. Two years after the constitutional referendum that re-defined marriage as a union of “two persons” (thus opening it to the absurd notion of a “marriage” between persons of the same sex), his next target is the abolition of the constitutional protections for the right to life of the weakest and most helpless members of society, unborn children.
