Official U.N. Human-rights: U.S. Bans Abortion is ' Extremist Hate ' and ' Torture '

On Tuesday, the UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights called for the recent stringent abortion bans passed in some U.S. states "torture" and "extremist hate" and said that they constitute a "women-driven crisis."

"We haven't called it out the same way we have other types of extremist hate, but it's gender-based violence against females, no question," said Kate Gilmore, Deputy High Commissioner, The Guardian. "It's evident that it's torture — it's a deprivation of a right to health." "It's a crisis. It's a women-driven crisis, "she added.

Gilmore, who since 2015 has served as Deputy High Commissioner, said a U.N. committee. Experts devoted to evaluating how nations enforce the principles of human rights have proclaimed an absolute ban on abortion separately.   It's against human rights. "Mississippi, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, North Dakota, and Ohio lately enacted bills banning abortions after just a few weeks, and Alabama passed a bill banning the proceedings at any stage except when the mother's life is endangered, the nation's most restrictive.

Pro-life proponents hope court challenges will ultimately reach the Supreme Court, where a fresh conservative majority will consider overthrowing Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion nationwide.

Gilmore took a shot at conservative organisations campaigning for the advancement of U.N. pro-life policies, stating their agenda is not fact-based.

"It is an attack on the values and norms of reality, science, and universality," she said. "You are entitled to your own view, but you are not entitled to your own facts," Gilmore continued. "We have to stand with the proof and facts and in solidarity with females, especially young females and minority females, who are really under the gun." "This does not impact well-off females in the same manner as females without funds, or capable females in the manner it impacts females with disabilities, and urban females in the manner it impacts rural females." She also called the Trump administration's April push "profoundly distressing" to remove language on sexual and reproductive health in a rape resolution, with the rationale that such language encourages abortion.
