At a recent meeting of the UN Human Rights Council, six national delegations urged Ireland to legalise abortion. Norway, the UK, Denmark, Slovenia, Spain, and the Netherlands all urged Ireland to make changes to its abortion laws. The Irish government has rejected all six demands, but the episode is a classic example of how pro-abortion governments attempt to bully (usually small or impoverished) pro-life nations into changing their laws. It also illustrates the efforts being made to reinterpret international conventions on human rights to create a "right" to abortion.
The Health Service Executive (HSE) is sponsoring a Masterclass for healthcare professionals on abortion. Orginally entitled “Termination of pregnancy: A lawful choice”, it has been renamed “Termination: Dealing with complex issues,” following complaints pointing out that abortion is not lawful in Ireland. It seems, however, that nothing but the title has been changed. The session still features a presentation by Sherie de Burgh, a veteran of the pro-abortion IFPA.
The report 'Your Rights - Right Now' is being submitted to the Universal Periodic Review which will examine Ireland's compliance with the UN Convention on Human Rights in October. The document calls for legalised abortion in Ireland and will be used by pro-abortion groups like the IFPA to put pressure on the Irish government.
