Rebuking ‘General Comment 36’

On October 31 this year, the United Nations Human Rights (CCPR) adopted a General Comment (General Comment No 3 6 on Article 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, on the right to life) that seeks to bully sovereign nations into legalising abortion (in the cases of rape, incest, health of the mother and fetal disability) and euthanasia.

The recommendation calls on states to cease introduction of new pro-life laws, and to remove laws which create a “barrier” to obtaining an abortion. Even the right of health-care workers to the exercise of conscientious objection to participating in abortion procedures is considered one such “barrier”.

The CCPR consists of human rights “experts” charged with monitoring the implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), and ensuring that state parties respect the rights enumerated by the Covenant.
