The battle over abortion is extremely hypocritical.
On one hand, some states argue that an unborn child is not a “person” and therefore abortion is allowed. On the other hand, some of the same states had ratified the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which is considered the cornerstone of human rights, and which, in part, reads:
“Art. 6.5: Sentence of death shall not be imposed for crimes committed by persons below eighteen years of age and shall not be carried out on pregnant women.”
WOW!!! So is an unborn child a “person” whose life shall be protected? It looks like it, doesn’t it?
And once you are at it, check what other rights you also have:
For some time now, we are observing a clever attempt at clouding the entire concept of human rights. Publicly advertised information on this topic is being reduced to the rights of ethnic groups, feminists, gays, lesbians, and such. While, in fact, these groups are included in human rights, such selective presentation aims at fading out public knowledge about these documents and the 99 percent of the remaining rights that our government and our media don’t want you to know about. In my opinion, of course 🙂
