The UN Committee Against Torture feel that the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill is inadequate. They feel women should be given access to an abortion in Ireland
Good Counsel Network Ireland have reflected somewhat on the latest decry from the UN on abortion-less Ireland. The UN Committee Against Torture are requesting information from Ireland, about the short comings of the recent Irish abortion bill. What we are seeing now is the Committee Against Torture go head to head with the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill. The UN Committee Against Torture are questioning whether adequate services for carrying out abortions exist in Ireland. The UN’s most prominent anti-torture “experts” believe the Irish Government must act to end the degrading treatment of women seeking an abortion in Ireland.
UN Committee Against Torture – Pro abortion? A touch ironic?
Just like the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill, the UN Committee Against Torture seems filled with irony. Any Good Counsel Network Volunteer would suspect as much. Abortion is torture, both for the baby and the woman. A lot of women who go through with an abortion, often live with deep regrets. This carries over for years, as post abortion women go through life emotionally & mentally tortured. Crisis pregnancy counselors deal with post abortion issues regularly. The Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill, seems tilted towards terminating life. The life of the baby is not given much protection status.
The irony for the Irish government
Good Counsel Network Ireland believes that the Irish government really pushed for abortion in Ireland. The politician’s blinkered approach has received little thanks from anybody. Instead of receiving international acclaim, Ireland have been criticized, and by the UN. Good Counsel Network volunteers are not at all surprised. Abortion advocates will not be satisfied by any governmental measures to appease them. This is the irony for the Irish government. How thankless the Protection of Life During Pregnancy bill was. No thanks of course from the pro life community. No thanks from the Pro Choice lobby. Most of all, no thanks from the UN Committee Against Torture.
