The Pro Life Campaign has said that it is “bordering on ridiculous the way some UN bodies are issuing what appear like twice monthly condemnations of Ireland’s pro-life Eighth Amendment.”
Speaking today following the release of the latest UN report on the Eighth Amendment, Cora Sherlock of the Pro Life Campaign said:
“Today’s report from the UN’s CEDAW committee in effect calls for the overturning of all meaningful protections for the unborn child under the Eighth Amendment.
“The purpose of the CEDAW committee is to highlight and seek to eliminate discrimination. Abortion is the ultimate discrimination as it targets the most vulnerable in society, namely unborn babies. The CEDAW committee has no authority to decide who should live and who should die. Certain UN committees like CEDAW are losing all credibility as defenders of authentic human rights and have, in recent years, become nothing more than cheerleaders for the abortion movement.”
