Reflections of Cowardice: UN honors abortionist, never says “abortion”

The Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights at the United Nations has honored abortionist Willie Parker by featuring him in a video entitled “Reflections of Courage: Defending Human Rights for Women.”

What’s missing from the video and the web page is the word abortion. Parker never uses the word abortion despite being an abortionist and being featured in a video talking about what he does.  Euphemisms like “reproductive health care,” “reproductive rights” and “the type of services I provide” are used instead. If committing abortions is such a great service to human rights, then why don’t the United Nations and Parker ever say “abortion” in the video? 

For years, human rights have been a complete joke at the United Nations as serial human rights violators have been members of the United Nations Human Right Council.  Currently, China, Cuba and Saudi Arabia are current members of the United Nations Human Rights Council despite having awful records on human rights.
