In 2011, the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights – an NGO that pushes for abortion around the world with a focus in the Global South º declared September 28 to be “International Safe Abortion Day.” Their de facto declaration was good enough for the abortion supporters who staff international institutions, and thus an entire day each September has been committed to celebrating the greatest global atrocity perpetrated annually against hundreds of millions of children in the womb.
The World Health Organization, predictably, is leading the charge, and this year they are partnering with the Human Reproduction Programme (HRP) to “promote the fundamental importance of access to safe abortion care for the health and rights of women and girls through a photo exhibit co-hosted by the United Nations at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.” Around the world, abortion activists will march, protest, and make political demands, calling for the legalization and normalization of a procedure which poisons, pulverizes, and pulps pre-born children in the womb under the brazen lie of “safe abortion.”
There is, of course, no such thing as a “safe abortion.” The sole purpose of an abortion is to end a life that has already begun. (Illustrating this fact to abortion supporters is simple. Ask them to what point they believe abortion should be legal, and when they give their answer – say, at 12 weeks, or 24 weeks – ask them: 24 weeks from what? What happened 24 weeks ago? The answer to that, of course, is obvious: 24 weeks from the moment that child’s life began. It would be nice if the WHO and the elites would follow the science for a change.)
What the “safe abortion” propaganda phrase means, of course, is that a child is violently removed without obvious physical harm to the mother, with any psychological damage simply being ignored.
Abortion is not a “right,” either – it is a human rights violation. Indeed, the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child, which was ratified by 196 countries, states explicitly that “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth.” I would challenge those dignitaries and elites lining up to listen to abortion activists today to ask them, directly, if they believe that a child does in fact have any rights before birth – and if those rights are in fact based explicitly in his or her dependence and vulnerability. Indeed, the very reason that abortion activists cite as justification for killing – that the pre-born child is totally dependent on the body of her mother – is the reason that the U.N. Declaration of the Rights of the Child cites as necessitating special protections.
