An expert on the international issue of life debunks the United Nations' latest attempt to promote abortion.
The United Nations International Safe Abortion Day has passed, but as Brian Clowes of Human Life International reveals, it was promoted by the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
"Their experts agree unanimously that abortion should be legalized worldwide,” Clowes says. "This is just one of their sneaky tricks. They only pick pro-abortion experts. They prohibit and ban pro-lifers from being on their committees or even testifying before their committees."
Clowes says the World Health Organization acknowledges that there are 56 million abortions annually worldwide and also admits that 45 percent of them are unsafe. But they automatically classify all legal abortions as safe.
“Now, once these guys get abortion legalized, their job is done,” Clowes says. “The problem is that the same quacks who were performing abortions before it's legalized are still doing them after abortion is legalized. They don't get training. It's the same people but they're doing many, many more [abortions], so more women are dying, not less.”
If so many women are dying from illegal abortions, Clowes says jailing those abortionists is a common sense answer. But the U.N. committee claims that passing restrictions on abortions doesn't reduce abortions and such laws have no effect.
However, Clowes says, that is not true.
