In December 1997 The United Nations established the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture as June 26th, with a view to the total eradication of torture and the effective functioning of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment.
However there is glaring hypocrisy between the way the UN views persons who are born from those who are waiting to be born. The unborn child is a human person. Torture is violence inflicted on the human person. Therefore violence against the unborn is a violation of human rights and is always to be condemned.
Are you aware that the United Nations promotes the torture of the unborn? Right to Life finds it unbelievable that the UN also proclaims that any attempts which seek to deny women the right to kill their unborn children by the violence of abortion, are in themselves a form of torture. It is extraordinary that the United Nations is promoting the violation of its own Convention opposing torture.
Why does the New Zealand government also continue to allow the torture and killing of unborn children? Both internationally and in New Zealand we refuse to recognise that abortion is government sanctioned and funded murder of our unborn children. Abortion is institutionalised torture and is openly being practised as a matter of public policy.
The violent murder and torture inflicted on a child in surgical abortion by the tearing off of the arms and legs of a child in the womb is an unspeakable injustice. Chemical abortions starve the child to death. Abortion is also violent torture inflicted on women who are its second victims. Why is there no cry of outrage from UN Committees? Why is there no cry from the community which while rightly outraged at the torture and murder of little Moko, remain strangely silent at the torture and killing of more than 12,000 unborn children each year in New Zealand?
Right to Life makes no apology for speaking up for those who have no voice and who have been tortured and murdered in our Hospitals on the pretext that it is a health service. We demand that the New Zealand government stop the torture of the unborn, the weakest and most defenceless members of our human family.
