Last week, questioners on the United Nations Committee Against Torture called pro-life speech “torture.” This move is part of a broader push by the radical abortion lobby to essentially criminalize the pro-life movement. The Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR), an extremist international abortion syndicate that is spearheading the anti-life push, sent a letter last month to the U.N. body on torture claiming that church leaders in the pro-life movement have “perpetuated torture” by taking a stand against abortion. In a deadly irony, an organization that promotes the indiscriminant slaughter of defenseless babies is urging the U.N. to view those who promote life as committing torture. While specifically aimed at the Catholic Church, the vile assertions could affect all Christians and the pro-life movement as a whole. The abortion lobby specifically alleges that church leaders have “contributed to torture and ill-treatment perpetuated by other states by negatively interfering with the development of state policy on abortion, in violation of its obligations under Articles 1, 2, and 16.” More
