Pop quiz: identify ten insanely stupid and evil things

From Orwell's Picnic:

1. UN Committee on Human Rights has no moral credibility whatsoever being recognized as an anti-Israel pro-Islam PR organization. 

2. If they had any credibility they would clean house first dealing with abuses of women in Islamic states. 

3. Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights does not include the obvious religious rights which are part of the abortion question.

 4. Abortion is presumably socially and culturally unacceptable in Nicaragua which means that the UN Committee should be opposed to forcing abortion on them. 

5. The Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women does not include elimination of sex selection abortions which is the ultimate in discrimination against women. 

6. Torture is being committed on the babies. 

7. Reversing a ban on abortion denies human rights to babies. 

8. "the prohibition of abortion exposes women ... "to a threat of serious violations of their rights."" actually, walking outside of your house puts you in a threat of serious violations of your rights. You might be rapped, murdered, kidnapped. Maybe the Taliban has a point after all. 

9. Allowing women to get abortions can lead to serious violations of their rights. They may be pressured into getting abortions against their will. If abortions are illegal they would probably be less likely to succumb to such pressure. 

10. Presumably the vast majority of women in Nicaragua are not in favour of legal abortion. Otherwise it would probably be legal. Nagging of husbands can produce excellent results, even in so-called patriarchal societies. 

And if I get a bonus for extra: 

11. Amnesty talks about the rights to be free from "torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment." Abortion is torture, cruel, inhuman treatments that degrades unborn women. 

P.S. I can see for allowing abortion if the Mother is actually about to die from the pregnancy. However that should only be done if there is no viable hope of saving both lives and all other options have been exhausted.
