A group of international women medical experts, who gave testimony before the United Nations Commission for the Status of Women (CSW) on Wednesday, condemned the pro-abortion agenda of the United Nations and its pressure on countries to fall in line.
Their testimony follows a report from Juan E. Mendez, the U.N.'s special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment, stating that refusing a woman an abortion is tantamount to the “torture” of women.
Experts who participated in the International Symposium on Maternal Healthcare presented their research to United Nations delegations this week, including evidence that countries where abortion is illegal or severely restricted enjoy the lowest maternal mortality rates.
They point to Ireland as a prime example. It is consistently considered by the U.N. and WHO as one of the safest places in the world for pregnant mothers, without recourse to abortion.
