On November 25, the United Nations will celebrate International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. On this noteworthy and noble day of remembrance, Family Watch International calls on governments, civil society and the UN to recognize, respect and protect ALL women and girls, including both born and unborn.
The Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women issued by the UN General Assembly in 1993, defines violence against women as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women.” Certainly killing an unborn girl or boy child qualifies as such violence.
It is, therefore, imperative that we educate public citizens, public officials, and UN officials of the permanent and irreparable damage abortion causes to both the mother and the baby. On International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, let’s stand together to eliminate the senseless killing of our future mothers, daughters, friends and leaders. Let’s stand together to save our future women and girls.
