MCCL GO speaks in defense of life at the U.N.’s Human Rights Council
Today Mary Langlois, representing Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life’s Global Outreach program (MCCL GO), made the case at a session of the Council meeting in Geneva, Switzerland that legalized abortion is neither necessary to ensure women’s health nor required under international law.
“Legalized abortion is not required by the right to health. Maternal health depends on the quality of medical care, not on the legal status or availability of abortion,” Langlois said. “We can save women’s lives in the developing world by ensuring proper care before, during, and after childbirth, including adequate nutrition, prenatal care, skilled birth attendants, emergency obstetric care, clean water, and sanitation.”
