The right to life is the most basic and important human right. Without it all other rights are meaningless.
The right to life of the unborn child has been included among the fundamental human rights acknowledged by the Irish constitution, and procured abortion is thus seen as an abuse of that human right.
Were the European Court of Human Rights to rule in favour of such human rights abuses as racial discrimination, slavery or torture, it would be reasonable to presume the Government would condemn such a judgement.
The Government, if it is truly concerned with protecting human rights, must condemn this anti-life ruling and do all it can at EU level to ensure the right of all states to protect all human life, born and unborn, is upheld under international law.
