Ireland Government Rejects UN Call to Legalize Abortion
Life Site News
The Irish government is drawing praise from pro-life advocates for rejecting a call from the United Nations and UN member states to legalize abortion.
The Irish Government’s decision to reject recommendations made by a number of UN member states for Ireland to legislate for abortion “recognizes the reality that Ireland is the safest country in the world for women to give birth” the Pro Life Campaign (PLC) has said.
Last October, the Irish government appeared before the UN Human Rights Council as part of the Universal Periodic Review process and rejected calls made by six countries for Ireland to legislate for abortion. The countries were Holland, Germany, Denmark, Slovenia, Norway and Spain.
