Resisting United Nations Abortion Pressure

This excerpt from Catholic World News should prompt you to read the whole story...

However, in an unusual twist, Krisztina Morvai of Hungary [a member of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women], seemed to express dissatisfaction with the committee's relentless focus on widening the availability of abortion. Speaking soon after Pimentel, Morvai said, "One thing that is invisible and lost in the debate is that abortion is bad for women."

Morvai then added, "No woman actually wants to have an abortion. We have this illusion that women have free choices. But abortion is a terribly damaging thing psychologically, spiritually, and physically." She said that she hopes one day that "abortion will be the past," and that it will be considered "like torture in the field of human rights."
