William Saunders of AUL blogged about the case today at LifeNews.com. An excerpt is below.
Tomorrow, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is expected to announce its ruling in the case ABC v. Ireland.
The plaintiffs, three anonymous women A., B., and C., are asking that the Court create a right to abortion in the European Convention on Human Rights (the Convention) to trump the right to life Ireland guarantees the unborn in its Constitution. It seems ironic that the Convention designed to protect against injustice may be used to stomp out a nation’s right to legally protect its smallest and most vulnerable members.
