Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality of the European Parliament (FEMM) shows that the world's population is "missing" almost 200 million women.
The FEMM Commission acknowledges that among main reasons of this highly dangerous phenomena is a widespread practice of selective abortion. Nevertheless, the FEMM Ctee is not willing to discuss the issue of abortion in general in this context.
Ordo Iuris already pointed to the fact in its comments to the draft report on WHO Health in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. OI emphasised that the spread of abortion creates favorable conditions for the development of the most brutal forms of discrimination against women in the world.
Taking advantage of the special consulting status bestowed by The UN Economic and Social Council, Ordo Iuris calls for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein to take a stand against a series of human and children’s rights violations which took place in the case of Alfie Evans.
