I listened to the news story and arguments on the radio, just now.
Agreeing with this statement was the Irish head of ‘Amnesty International’, i.e. the human rights:rolleyes: organisation that is also trying to get Catholic schools reduced, if not annihilated, in the whole island of Ireland - as that also discriminates against ‘human rights’! Looks like this NGO was set up with worldwide secularisation, as it’s main long term goal.
Fortunately, another speaker, Dr Tom Finnegan, from the Iona institute, was superb in his arguments against.
*A woman carrying a foetus with a fatal abnormality was subjected to discrimination and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment due to Ireland’ s abortion ban, the United Nations has found.
It called for the strict prohibition to be reversed, including reforming the right to life of the unborn in the Constitution if necessary, to allow women to voluntarily terminate a pregnancy safely.
The independent experts, from the Geneva-based Human Rights Committee, said Amanda Mellet was forced to choose between carrying her baby to term, knowing it would not survive, or travelling abroad for a termination.
The UN body also hit out at the Government for putting her through financial and emotional suffering.*
