The U.N. Human Rights Committee, one of the oldest U.N. treaty bodies, is using its power to attack the right to life of unborn babies. The committee is currently drafting a legal commentary on Article 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights on the Right to Life, aimed at excluding unborn children’s right to life in international law. The human rights of all members of the human family, including unborn babies, must be protected!
FRC is joining C-Fam, Americans United for Life, United Families International, and other concerned organizations in a petition to the U.N. Human Rights Committee urging them not to define the unborn child out of the right to life. The U.N. Human Rights Committee needs to hear from you that this is an unacceptable overreach that discriminates against the rights of an entire group of people, unborn babies. Please sign the petition here. It will be presented to the committee prior to its final decision this October.
