Pregnancy as Torture!!

My son Michael emailed me this article from the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute,  A U.N. Committee is actually claiming that Nicaragua's pro-life laws are... are you ready?.......


"The United Nations (UN) committee charged with monitoring compliance with the Convention Against Torture has declared that Nicaragua’s full protection of fetal life violates the country's obligations under the Convention. This is the first time this committee has reviewed Nicaragua since that government outlawed abortion for any reason three years ago."

And get this.  Amnesty International supports this U. N. Committee!!!!

"Among the human rights lobbyist organizations that have increasingly lent a voice to abortion advocacy in the developing world is Amnesty International, which abandoned its previous neutrality on the issue in 2007. In a shadow briefing to the torture committee, Amnesty asserted that Nicaragua's legislation banning all abortions was equivalent to government commissioned “torture” or at least “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment” banned by the Convention. "

OK.  Now I've heard Everything!!!
(not really.)

Pregnancy is torture!!??!!??!!??!!??!!??

Carrying a baby, bringing a new human being into the world, not killing your baby......this is torture.

I'm sorry, but those who have actually articulated this position can only be described as very, very sick people.

To have such profound disrespect for the sacred gift of human life is, well, I don't know how else to describe it, diabolical.

That this idea has not been met with utter disgust and contempt is frightening.

Lord have mercy.

And may God bless C-fam as they fight against this horror.
