UN Condemns Texas Pro-Life Law More Strongly Than It Condemns the Taliban

'It is profoundly discriminatory and violates a number of rights guaranteed under international law...'

The United Nations condemned Texas’s new law restricting abortion as a violation of international law, which is harsher than its condemnation of the Taliban’s recent human rights abuses in Afghanistan.

Texas’s law, which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, is “structured sex and gender-based discrimination at its worst,” claimed Melissa Upreti, the chairwoman of the UN’s working group on discrimination against women and girls.

“This new law will make abortion unsafe and deadly, and create a whole new set of risks for women and girls,” she continued, according to the Guardian. “It is profoundly discriminatory and violates a number of rights guaranteed under international law.”

Upreti also blasted the US Supreme Court for not striking down the law, claiming the justices have “taken the entire country backwards.”

The in a 5–4 vote last week, the court said it would not strike down Texas’s law because the defendants did not have sufficient legal standing to sue since the law empowers private citizens, not state officials, to enforce it.

Reem Alsalem, the UN’s independent monitor on violence against women, also denounced the Supreme Court for allowing the Texas law to stand, arguing that bench “has chosen to trample on the protection of women’s reproductive rights, thereby exposing them and abortion service providers to more violence.”

Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council has refused to outright condemn the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, instead asking the terrorist organization to make sure that all nations have “full, safe, and unhindered” access to the region and not to affiliate with other terrorists.

The Security Council “expects that the Taliban will adhere to these and all other commitments,” the resolution states.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley even said she would not be surprised if the international organization eventually recognizes the Taliban as a legitimate government.

“The U.N. already has a terrible track record when it comes to giving human rights abusers a seat at the table,” she said.

Despite the Islamic extremists’ atrocious record of raping and murdering women and children, some warned that the Taliban might even inherit a spot on a UN’s women’s rights commission.
