UN attempts to promote abortion in Africa as a ‘healthcare human right’ — Peter Hammond

CitizenGo activists present a petition to a representative of Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyata in November 2019, urging him to reject the agenda of a major pro-abortion summit in Nairobi sponsored by the United Nations Population Fund and Denmark

Under the “Newspeak Double Think” deceptive headline: “Abortion is Health Care – this Makes it a Human Right,” an article published in the Daily Maverick on August 14, authored by Dr Tlaleng Mofokeng (who is described as a United Nations Commission on Human Rights special rapporteur for physical and mental health) caught my attention.

The Daily Maverick identifies the article as “first published in Section 27’s Abortion in Eastern and Southern Africa publication.”

Just as George Orwell’s dystopian 1984 novel describes the Ministry of Truth as dealing in lies, disinformation and propaganda, the Ministry of Peace waging war, the Ministry of Love engaging in torture and the Ministry of Plenty dealing with rationing and ensuring shortages and starvation, this UN propaganda piece is a classic of disinformation and inverted reality.

Targeting Africa for abortion
The fact is that abortion is recognised as the taking of an innocent life throughout almost every country in Africa, with the notable exception of South Africa. Every abortion stops a beating heart. Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being. Abortion leaves one dead and one wounded. All women who have had an abortion suffer severe psychological consequences. The medical term for this is post-abortion syndrome. However, according to this UN propagandist, all states in Africa should legalise abortion, which she describes as “reproductive health” and as a “human right!”

Evidently unconcerned about the right to life of pre-born babies, Mofokeng writes of “dignity”, “bodily integrity”, “equality”, “safety and security”, “health…”, “reproductive justice”, “freedom to choose” and condemns pro-life legislation, which outlaws abortion throughout almost every country in Africa as “oppression and discrimination”, “legalised discrimination”, “oppression of women” and singles out Malawi, Botswana and Namibia for “laws that seek to punish those who work in the abortion services…”.

Mofokeng also rants against US president Donal Trump’s “global gag rule” which she identifies as “the President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)” which “forces” recipients to “be contractually bound to abandon work related to abortion provision, advocacy, law reform and information dissemination”.

She then rants on about how the developing world is still trying to “recover from the damage done during the George W Bush presidency to sexual and reproductive health rights and the provision of related service in public health systems”. Apparently, donors should not have the right to stipulate that their funds provided for healthcare be used for healthcare and not for killing babies.

Radical rhetorical rant against right to life
For muddying the waters, poisoning the well, weaponising words and using toxic terminology, all of this is pretty hard to beat. Mofokeng complains about “the disconnection of abortion from primary health and sexual and reproductive rights” which she condemns as “systemic anti-choice positions”.

Then, ominously, UN propagandist Mofokeng complains about South Africa’s “Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1996” where she alleges “many women in the country are denied access to abortion services on the grounds of moral and religious beliefs and those of health providers. There are only a few practitioners and public health facilities who provide abortion services”. Evidently, Mofokeng and the UN who finances her, do not tolerate conscientious objectors on moral and religious grounds and want to criminalise those doctors and nurses and other health professionals who do not want to pervert their healing profession by taking innocent lives through the violence of abortion.

Her article is an ominous warning of a new concerted effort to not only stigmatise those countries that seek to protect the most innocent life of all from the violence and injustice of abortion, but to criminalise Christian and other pro-life doctors and nurses and other health professionals from their right to choose to be conscientious objectors in such a highly controversial matter as abortion.

Mofokeng urges her readers to “achieve the United Nation’s sustainable development goals” by removing all obstructions to, what she calls “sexual and reproductive health care”, which is a euphemistic term for killing pre-born babies.

It is absolutely vital that we speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, that we have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. “Who will rise up for Me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for Me against the workers of iniquity?” — Psalm 94:16

    Why do normally sane people promote abortion as a “reproductive HEALTH” issue? It is because they focus on the “health” of the mother, the desire of the mother to get rid of the consequence of their (often-immoral) sexual behaviour. They focus on the “health” of the mother, not of the baby. The unborn baby is labelled a ‘foetus’, a part of the mother, to be disposed of by the mother to suit her convenience. I encourage a more nuanced Pro-Life activism that proves that the unborn baby has a human identity distinct from the mother, making him/her an individual human being in their own right. To kill a human being is murder. To prove this: Compare the unborn-baby’s DNA with that of the mother. It is similar but NOT identical. This is a scientific argument, which cannot be dismissed as easily as moral and religious arguments. (If I am wrong, please correct me.)
