Unborn Children Not Considered Worthy of Right to Live by U.N. Human Rights Committee

Stefano Gennarini : Nov 6, 2017  Lifesitenews.com

No expert expressed concern for children in the womb capable of feeling pain, or brought up the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which expressly requires states to protect children "before birth."

The committee added language about access to abortion not just being a right under the covenant, but that it must also be "affordable" and "effective," as abortion groups recommended to the committee. U.S. law professor Sarah Cleveland said this was needed to make it easier for rape victims to obtain abortions.

No expert expressed concern for children in the womb capable of feeling pain, or brought up the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which expressly requires states to protect children "before birth."
