The UN's continued disrespect for women

From LifeNews:

Like the Chinese government, officials in North Korea practice a regime of forced abortion and infanticides, according to a human rights report released Monday by the Bush administration.

Written by the State Department, the report says, "The [government of North Korea's] human rights record remained extremely poor, and it continued to commit numerous serious abuses."

It cites instances of forced abortion and infanticide in prisons and detention centers.

"Prison conditions were harsh and life-threatening, and torture reportedly was common," the report explained. "Pregnant female prisoners reportedly underwent forced abortions, and in other cases babies reportedly were killed upon birth in prisons."

"Defectors have reported that government officials prohibit live births in prison," the Bush administration report details.

North Korea officials also torture women from China who are fleeing that Asian nation to escape its coercive one-child policy that has resulted in similar forced abortions, forced sterilizations and imprisonment.

North Korea, like China is one of the 179 nations the UN brags about being a party to their “Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women” Obviously a meaningless distinction.

Michelle Malkin links to an OpEd by Wendy McElroy that says:

How can a self-respecting woman, let alone a feminist, legitimize the U.N. through her presence? The CSW [Commission on the Status of Women] should be in the forefront of those crying out for justice and U.N. accountability. Instead, the CSW will almost certainly call for expanding the U.N.’s power and funding.

Rage will be directed instead at President Bush who has already created pre-meeting controversy. On Thursday, the Bush administration signaled its refusal to renew an unconditional commitment to the Beijing Platform, a declaration of women’s rights promoted by the Clintons, which many consider to be a radical feminism’s global agenda.

The Commission on the Status of Women is the meeting to determine the status and future of the CEDAW. Already Liberals and their totalitarian allies are demanding that abortion be treated as a human right.
