In 1948, the United Nations published the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, stating that “Recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”
Moreover, Article 3 of the Declaration states, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”
and Article 6 states: “Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.”
Isn’t it time for nations to pay attention to these statements when they craft their policies about abortion? After all, everyone means every human being, and the child in the womb is undeniably human. Let’s spread awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. See priestsforlife.org.
