UN: Guaranteeing a "Right to Death"?

I have just received an e-mail from the European Centre for Law and Justice, but this is NOT just a European issue, the UN Human Rights Committee affects the whole of our world. The e-mail says:

Do you think it is normal that a few persons can impose to the whole world the legalisation of abortion and of assisted suicide?

Yet it is what will probably happen if nothing is done to counter the activism of a few members of the Human Rights Committee in Geneva.

This Committee, composed of 18 experts, has indeed undertaken to draft a new official and universal interpretation of the “right to life”. On this occasion, a few of its members want to introduce a “right to death” by forcing the States to legalise abortion on demand and euthanasia. (see the text here, § 9).

THIS AFFECTS YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES, YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS AS THEY AGE AND THOSE NOT YET BORN.

If you have not already done so please sign this or another of the petitions against this abomination at:

Thank you.

  • This is from the European Center for Law and Justice. It was in my emails this morning. You've probably seen it already, but I thought I'd share.

    The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of the United Nations officially stated that abortion of children because of a disability violates the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

    While an important pressure takes place to impose the legalisation of eugenic abortion, the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of the United Nations has just declared in an official document that “Laws which explicitly allow for abortion on grounds of impairment violate the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Art,. 4,5,8)”. This Committee further explained that this type of abortion is often based on inaccurate diagnosis and that “even if it is not false, the assessment perpetuates notions of stereotyping disability as incompatible with a good life”.

    In this declaration, the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities directly opposes the Human Rights Committee, which has undertaken the reinterpretation of the “right to life” as implying a right to abortion “most notably … when the foetus suffers from fatal impairment”. The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities asks for the removal of this assessment.

    The declaration of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is very important. It reminds, once again, of the necessity to firmly oppose the eugenic temptation, which relies on disdaining weakness. In 1947 already, the writers of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights had to oppose the attempt aiming at allowing the “prevention of the birth of children mentally handicapped” and children “born from parents suffering from mental illness”. The similarity of these propositions with the Nazi ideology was then denounced.

    The ECLJ rejoices in this declaration which goes along with its numerous interventions before the Human Rights Council. The ECLJ will continue to denounce prenatal eugenics as well as late abortions and to reiterate the fact that the rights to life and to care must be guaranteed to every person.

    The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities also took a stand against a so-called “right to euthanasia”, for, according to them, it “perpetuates stereotypes about severely impaired people suffering and being better off dead”. Just like with disabled unborn children…

    The ECLJ also submitted a memorandum to the Human Rights Committee in support of the right to life, memorandum which was supported by more than 130,000 persons. The ECLJ will attend the work sessions in Geneva, on the 27th of October and 1st and 2nd of November.

    We invite you to sign this petition and to share this information around you.

    Thank you!

    I wrote a paper on euthanasia in my Business Law class. I figured no one else would write about it. I was right. I can't find the paper I wrote. Sorry about that. I'm kicking myself. It's about 18 pages of legal dribble. American law is rich in information. The Human Rights Committee may push for euthanasia of the elderly and sick, but they must conquer many years of law. As far as the not yet born, it is up to us to take a stand for those who cannot speak for themselves.

    My Gary had said he wanted to be kept alive. Some how between the time I last saw him on the 5th floor of the hospital and he got moved to ICU, those orders had changed. They had it not to keep him alive by any extraordinary means. I was shocked, and I was scared for Gary. If they honored what he had said, he would die. A lot can change in 12 hours. It was not entirely the ICU staff's fault. I'm not sure how that change happened and who was responsible. I know the ICU staff didn't believe me when I said there was something wrong and Gary wasn't completely aware of what was happening. It was only when Gary didn't know where he was and what year it was, that I got to step in and speak for him and act for him. I'm very thankful to God for having the chance to save Gary's life.

    It was just recently Gary asked when did he have an ulcer. He doesn't remember how close he was to death.

    God bless,

    Mary

    • I'm sorry, I don't know how to fix the dark print.
