U.N. Demands Poland Allow Abortion

Another reason to abolish the United Nations...

From LifeSite Special Report - U.N. Demands Poland Overturn Laws Against Abortion:

"The United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) concluded a review on Poland's compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), demanding that the mostly-Catholic nation 'liberalize' its abortion laws. The UN committee composed of 18 UN human rights 'experts' from various countries met with Polish officials on October 27 and 28, making its observations and recommendations on November 4.

While, the UN itself and the ICCPR specifically does not officially promote abortion, both the organization and the committee enforcing the ICCPR have often been criticized for meddling in the contentious issue. The November 4 statement of the UNHRC is particularly blunt in demanding Poland legalize abortion. 'The State Party should liberalize its legislation and practice on abortion,' it said."
