Precious Life will expose hypocrisy of 'human rights' Commission

Precious Life will hold a protest outside Belfast High Court tomorrow - Wednesday 26 May at 9.45am - in response to a judicial review of abortion by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC). Our protest will expose the hypocrisy of the Commission that seeks to deny the human rights of babies in the womb.

The NIHRC has lodged judicial review proceedings in the High Court against the Stormont Executive and Department of Health for “...failing to commission and fund abortion.” NIHRC Chief Les Allamby said the Commission was “deeply concerned” at the LACK of abortions in Northern Ireland.

Abortion was forced on Northern Ireland by the Westminster Parliament in October 2019 through Section 9 of the NI (Executive Formation etc) Act. Their new abortion regulations came into force on 31 March 2020. Official figures released in February revealed that 1345 babies were killed by abortion since March 2020

Precious Life will be outside the court as a voice for the unborn child. The so-called Human Rights Commission is taking legal action over what they describe as a ‘delay’ in providing abortion across the whole of Northern Ireland. Since March last year over 1345 little babies have already been killed by abortion in Northern Ireland. But the Commission aren't deeply concerned about these little humans. Through this court case, they want to force the Stormont Assembly to facilitate the killing of even more unborn babies – even right up to the moment of birth.

The hypocrisy of the Human Rights Commission must be exposed. Their legal action is a direct threat to the most basic and fundamental human right of all - the right to life - without it, all other rights are meaningless!

Every person in Northern Ireland - born and unborn - must have the right to life. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states "...every child has the inherent right to life...the child...needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, BEFORE as well as after BIRTH."

Precious Life will continue exposing the hypocritical pro-abortion agenda of the so-called Human Rights Commission. We will continue campaigning to REPEAL SECTION 9 and restore full legal protection and human rights for our unborn babies.
