UN Officials Tell Supreme Court to Maintain Abortion Precedent

The United Nations is using its power in an attempt to influence a Supreme Court case challenging the legality of abortion in the United States.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health is set to be heard by the Supreme Court this December. In this case, abortion advocates challenged a Mississippi law prohibiting abortions after 15 weeks gestation. Mississippi is asking the court to overturn its Roe v. Wade ruling, which created a federal right to abortion.

An amicus brief filed by UN officials is arguing that overturning Roe v. Wade would violate international human rights law.

This is a new kind of intrusion by the UN into the US legal system. The Supreme Court is supposed to make rulings based on the text of the Constitution, not the whims of foreign governments. Despite this, the UN officials make no attempt to cite the US Constitution.

“The United States would contradict international human rights law by overturning its established constitutional protections for abortion access,” the experts say in their brief. Abortion is “necessary for women’s autonomy, equality and non-discrimination,” they argued.

In their brief, the UN officials openly stated that they deny unborn babies the right to life: “The right to life emanating from human rights treaties does not apply prenatally,” they wrote.
