Abortion – “international human right”???

The numbers are staggering. I am not against a woman’s right to choose, I am just against abortion. I think there must be a better way. From The Brussels Journal

Every year one in three pregnancies worldwide ends in an abortion. A total of 40 million abortions are performed each year, which means that since 1980 one billion children have not been allowed to be born.

New EU members, Lithuania, Poland and Slovakia – are overwhelmingly Catholic and the doctor’s rights to object to performing abortions are overwhelmed by the EU stated right for a woman to choose to have an abortion.

A European Union advisory panel has issued a statement saying that medical professionals are not allowed to refuse to participate in abortions. According to the EU Network of Independent Experts on Fundamental Rights doctors should be forced to perform abortions, even if they have conscientious objections, because the right to abort a child is an “international human right”.

Suppose our Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, could we be “forced” by the UN to perform abortions because of an “international human right”?

  1. The question about law &international agreements is one that conlaw profs love. There’s no clear-cut answer (IIRC), but many do think that if we sign a treaty mandating abortion rights, the US is bound by that and must maintain the legality of abortion (since treaties are the law of the land per the US Constitution).
