The UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health Anand Grover has said abortion should be an option for women where their health is affected and not only where the life of the mother is at risk. Speaking to RTÉ News, Mr. Grover said he is concerned about the health of women around the world, but in particular the health of women in Ireland following the death of Savita Halappanavar. Incidentally RTE FAILED to indicate that Mr. Grover has issued a radical pro-abortion report.
Really Mr. Grover!!. It is none of your business how Ireland regulates its health service. Your intervention is ill-timed, ill-judged and idiotic. Three inquiries are ongoing into Savita's death. You do not have the full facts in relation to this case. Yet you are pontificating in relation to it. Much of the coverage in the international media on this issue was and is deeply flawed and was/is influenced by Irish pro- aborts. You appear to be strongly influenced by pro- abortion lies in the international media. The UN is a deeply discredited organisation which has become a pro-abortion front. Where for instance is UN concern on gendercide? Yet for sometime it has been busy interfering in Irish internal affairs on the abortion issue. Essentially Mr.Anand Grover is arguing for abortion on demand in Ireland. Now of course he will not state that openly. That is the only conclusion that can be drawn from his injudicious intervention. Where is your concern for the unborn child Mr. Grover? The pro-life position is that a seriously ill mother is entitled to all treatment necessary to save her life even if the unborn child unintentionally dies in the course of the treatment. That is the situation in Ireland at present.
Now suicide should not be a grounds for abortion: Eleven top-level Irish consultant psychiatrists have sent a letter to FG TDs and Senators opposing suicide as a grounds for abortion. The letter states that "termination of pregnancy is not a psychiatric treatment for suicidality, nor is it mentioned as such in any of the major textbooks of psychiatry'. The letter also expresses the belief that "offering an abortion to a distressed person who is psychiatrically ill would be strongly ill-advised since the person's capacity to make important life decisions is frequently impaired". These are the experts not you Mr. Grover. Ireland does not need your concern. The maternal mortality rate in INDIA is 540 per 100,000. That is YOUR country Mr. Grover. It has legalised abortion. In IRELAND (without abortion) the maternal mortality rate is 6 per 100,000. Based on world wide statistics for maternal mortality Ireland is one of the safest countries in the world for pregnant women.
The UN has morphed into an organisation that denies the unborn the right to life. A so-called human rights organisation is now attacking the human rights of the unborn. Yet it fails to attack gendercide in China. It is a cowardly discredited body that increasingly promotes the CULTURE OF DEATH. Hopefully Irish politicians will have the good sense to ignore its moronic pronouncements on the unborn.
