VANCOUVER (LSN) – The UN’s chief prosecutor in the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda Justice Louise Arbour addressed the International Bar Association yesterday calling for “human rights enforcement.” Arbour told the assembled conference participants that “In legal terms, the field of human rights is moving seriously into an area of enforcement.”“If enforcement, through the use of criminal sanctions, can be made to work, it will be an extraordinary credit to the international legal community,” she said. Although her comments came in the context of her recent dealings with war crimes, they are of particular concern to pro-life UN analysts. Campaign Life Coalition notes that the UN treats abortion as a human right. Recent UN conferences have established that “women’s rights are human rights” and that women have the “right to reproductive health” which includes abortion on demand. Arbour also expressed her hope for the soon realization of a permanent International Criminal Court.
