United Nations Committee Urges Abortions

Mr. Yadh Ben Achour,  a prominent member of the UN Human Rights Committee, is arguing that abortion is “OK” when it prevents having children with down syndrome and other disabilities.

As told by Mr. Ben Achour:

If you tell a woman, “Your child has Dow…” — what is it called? Down syndrome, Dawn syndrome — if you tell her that, or that he may have a handicap forever, for the rest of his life, you should make this woman… it should be possible for her to resort to abortion to avoid the handicap as a preventive measure:

“and ensure they have a life, a possible living.”

“But that does not mean that we have to accept to let a disabled fetus live,” he said. “This is a preventive measure.”

    An abortion is alright anytime an educated woman and her doctor decide to have one. It’s HER choice, no one else. A fetus remains that until first breath. I am a Christian, and my Bible tells HOW to abort a fetus, WHEN to abort a fetus, and, in one case, has a priest perform one on an altar. YES,REALLY.
    The problem with the PRO LIFE movement, is that the members are PRO FETUS, not PRO CHILD.

    • Big Ed

      I’d sure as hell like to see a copy of your Bible. I’ve read mine cover to cover and have never seen anything even remotely like what you describe. I am pro-life and that includes pro-fetus, because a fetus is an incompletely formed human being, but a human being none-the-less. Your educated woman did have a choice-she could have kept her clothes on and her legs together. When she decided to let it fly, she added another human life to the equation and that should be enough to affect her further decisions.

        They didn’t have abortions when the Bible was written. The Bible does say thou shalt not murder. Taking the life of another even if it’s unborn is murder.

    • Tom

      I think that the father of that fetus should have a say in that childs life, after all that child would not be possible without his participation, I realize the woman has to carry that baby for nine months, but it was the mans sperm as well as the womans egg that created that life. And if the woman wants to terminate that life but the father is willing to support and raise that child, then he should have a say, like I said the woman has to carry that fetus for nine months, but if she didn’t want that child, she shouldn’t have laid with that man, after all there is such a thing as condoms, which should be used not only to prevent STD’s but also un-wanted children.

          What the Bible says about Abortion

          Abortion is not murder. A fetus is not considered a human life.

          If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life. — Exodus 21:22-23

          The Bible places no value on fetuses or infants less than one month old.

          And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver. — Leviticus 27:6

          Fetuses and infants less than one month old are not considered persons.

          Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD. — Numbers 3:15-16

          God sometimes approves of killing fetuses.

          And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? … Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. — Numbers 31:15-17

          (Some of the non-virgin women must have been pregnant. They would have been killed along with their unborn fetuses.)

          Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. — Hosea 9:14

          Yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb. — Hosea 9:16

          Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up. — Hosea 13:16

          God sometimes kills newborn babies to punish their parents.

          Because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die. — 2 Samuel 12:14

          God sometimes causes abortions by cursing unfaithful wives.

          The priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell. And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen. …

          And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed. — Numbers 5:21-21, 27-28

          God’s law sometimes requires the execution (by burning to death) of pregnant women.

          Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. — Genesis 38:24

          • Estell Newton

            A fetus is a living breathing human. If it weren’t we wouldn’t have kids.

    • Bernie

      Will,
      If there was a way to determine if a fetus will be a left-wing loon, then I’d make it mandatory to abort.
      Your turn….

    • Estell Newton

      Sorry dummy. You can’t have a child without it being a fetus first.

    • Michael Villwock

      Christians do not support murder.. the Bible does not agree with murder..God is the Author and the giver of life.. consider God told Jeremiah, “I knew you while you were in your mother’s womb.”..Life begins at conception, not birth.. you are misquoting the scripture because you don’t know the scripture.. it isn’t a “fetus” as men and you like to say to ease your conscience.. it is a baby.. just like you were at one time.. maybe you would have supported your mother aborting you

    • ErnieLane

      Please us tell us how _your_ Bible tells you this . . . and what book it
      is. It’s obviously not _the_ Bible, or you would have used that term.

  • Tom

    I am pro life, but I don’t want any child to be knowingly born with a handicapped life, I think that every child should experience a good productive life, not a miserable life where he or she suffers everyday, that’s no way to live, that’s the reason we have laws against inbreeding, so in those cases I do believe in abortion.

    • Estell Newton

      Doctors have been known to be wrong. There are many cases where a fetus was said to have massive handicaps. The women had the children anyway and the kids turned out to be normal.

      • Tom

        Well, I might have to reconsider my opinion then, because I certainly don’t believe in killing a perfectly nomal fetus, because like I said I am pro-life.

        • Estell Newton

          doctors rely on tests and if the test is tainted so are the results.  And a lot of things happen during birth and after birth that also cause problems.  To allow a fetus to be killed because of a test that may not be accurate would open the door to killing people who have an accident during their lifetime.

          • mrpoohead

            …………and if you don’t allow a lot of abnormalities that will require funding.

      • mrpoohead

        Proof please.

        • Estell Newton

          Abortion is killing a living person.  It’s murder.

          • mrpoohead

            Technically not a person until birth, 60 million fewer Americans – thank God.

          • Estell Newton

            Wrong again as usual.  They are a living breathing being from the time of conception.  If the weren’t, you would never have a baby.

          • mrpoohead

            Actually they do not breath until birth – who’d breath in amniotic fluid? Yuk!

          • Estell Newton

            Actually they do.  They cannot live if they don’t breath.  They breath through the mother’s naval cord dummy.

          • Estell Newton

            Actually they do.  They cannot live if they don’t breath.  They breath through the mother’s naval cord dummy.

          • mrpoohead

            They are supplied with life through the cord, they are not physically breathing.

          • Estell Newton

            They are still breathing and alive so it is still murder.

          • mrpoohead

            In your weird world maybe, in legal terms? No!

          • Estell Newton

            You need to get out of your liberal world and into reality.

          • mrpoohead

            Legally I’m correct, kind of makes you the dummy.

          • Estell Newton

            You’re the dummy.  The law is wrong.  A fetus is a living being whether you like it or not.  If killing a living fetus is ok then so is turning off all ventilators since they are artificially keeping people alive.  en you love killing people.  Stupid liberal.

          • Estell Newton

            Well I suggest you run for office then and change it, until then “right” is on my side. Duh!
            60 million fewer Americans thanks to abortion – phew!

      • mrpoohead

        ……..and the doctors excuse for you?

  • jjmcl431

    In my life time (I am 74 years old) i have met many children and adults with down syndrome and other disabilities and if given a chance and training in most case are just as bright and productive (sometimes more) as most so called “normal” people.

  • Carol Ann Bowker

    SICK

  • JOANIE

    shame his mother didn’t kill him!

    • Judy

      Yes I agree with you and if you do not want a child get fixed like animals

  • Richard I Ellis

    And the “WRATH OF BAAL” continues on!

  • Ken

    Are you kidding me man. What the kinda of bible are you reading because THAT IS NOT WHAT THE WORD OF GOD CONDONES.You seriously need to re-educate your self as God’s Word does not allow this . All human life is sanctified. and don’t try and come back on me that I do not know what I am talking about as I have my Master of divinity and law from the Trinity Western University. If you have more incite I am willing to hear your incites and educational back ground to continue this ill informed discussion.

  • don lavrich

    abortions are nothing but modern sacrifices to satan, as It was 2000, years ago children were sacrificed to the pagan god, baal. this procedure is barbaric and is nothing more than murder. in the eyes of God every one of these lives are precious. see what the Lord tells you about your immortal sin when you stand before Him on judgement day!

    • Will

      bullshit. it’s all about controlling women’s sexuality; always has been

      • Estell Newton

        No. It’s about giving a living fetus a chance to live. Keep your zipper and her pants up and you won’t have an unwanted pregnancy.

      • Snufy

        It’s mostly about birth control. It’s murdering a living human being, nothing less. Look at yourself. Nobody aborted you, yet.

  • Will

    If men got pregnant, abortions would be, by now, elevated to a Holy ritual, and birth control available at every drive through, nacho or bar b Q flavored. it’s about controlling women, period.

  • Estell Newton

    Abortions is murder. Life begins at conception.

  • The Pro-Life movement is pro-child! The fetus is a living, breathing human being! No child should be aborted because it is a life. When you say, Will, that it’s a woman’s choice, they’re forgetting something. It’s a child, not a choice.

  • ErnieLane

    And yet we keep paying for this crap. Why are still in the UN at all?

  • Snufy

    Even Jesse Jackson said that if it’s growing, it’s alive.
