Abortion advocates want more than to keep Roe vs. Wade intact. They want to establish an international right to abortion, overriding the decisions of individual nations to protect preborn children. But, as usual, these people have it completely wrong. The international right that has to be proclaimed and protected is the right to life.
After the horrors of the Second World War, people around the world realized that there was a need for an international body to acknowledge and protect basic human rights, in case individual nations fail to do so. This led to the development of the United Nations. The UN Charter states that its purpose is quote “to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person” end quote. Let’s apply this to the unborn.
