Under the Newspeak Double Think deceptive headline: “Abortion is Health Care – this Makes it a Human Right,” published in the Daily Maverick, 14 August 2020, authored by Tlaleng Mofokeng (who is described as a United Nations Commission on Human Rights special rapporteur for physical and mental health). The Daily Maverick identifies the article as “first published in Section 27’s Abortion in Eastern and Southern Africa publication.”
Disinformation and Distortion
Just as George Orwell’s dystopian 1984 novel describes the Ministry of Truth as dealing in lies, disinformation and propaganda, the Ministry of Peace waging war, the Ministry of Love engaging in torture and the Ministry of Plenty dealing with rationing and ensuring shortages and starvation, this U.N. propaganda piece is a classic of disinformation and inverted reality.
Targeting Africa for Abortion
The fact is that abortion is recognised as the taking of an innocent life throughout almost every country in Africa, with the notable exception of ANC ruled South Africa. Every abortion stops a beating heart. Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being. Abortion leaves one dead and one wounded. All women who have had an abortion suffer severe psychological consequences. The medical tern for this is Post-Abortion Syndrome. However, according to this U.N. propagandist, all states in Africa should legalise abortion, which she describes as “reproductive health” and as a “human right!”
Condemnation of Pro-Life Countries in Africa
Evidently unconcerned about the right to life of pre-born babies, Mofokeng writes of “dignity,” “bodily integrity,” “equality,” “safety and security,” “health,…” “reproductive justice,” “freedom to choose” and condemns pro-life legislation, which outlaws abortion throughout almost every country in Africa as “oppression and discrimination,” “legalised discrimination,” “oppression of women” and singles out Malawi, Botswana and Namibia for “laws that seek to punish those who work in the abortion services…”!
Ranting Against Trump
Mofokeng also rants against president Trump’s “global gag rule,” which she identifies as “the President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief,” (PEPFAR) which “forces” recipients to “be contractually bound to abandon work related to abortion provision, advocacy, law reform and information dissemination!” She then rants on about how the developing world is still trying to “recover from the damage done during the George W. Bush presidency to sexual and reproductive health rights and the provision of related service in public health systems.” Apparently, donors should not have the right to stipulate that their funds provided for health care be used for health care and not for killing babies.
Radical Rhetorical Rant Against the Right to Life
For muddying the waters, poisoning the well, weaponising words and using toxic terminology, all of this is pretty hard to beat. Mofokeng complains about “the disconnection of abortion from primary health and sexual and reproductive rights,” which she condemns as “systemic anti-choice positions!”
No Freedom of Choice to be Allowed for Conscientious Objectors
Then, ominously, U.N. propagandist Mofokeng complains about South Africa’s “Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1996” where she alleges, “many women in the country are denied access to abortion services on the grounds of moral and religious beliefs and those of health providers. There are only a few practitioners and public health facilities who provide abortion services.” Evidently, Mofokeng and the U.N. who finances her, do not tolerate conscientious objectors on moral and religious grounds and want to criminalise those doctors and nurses and other health professionals who do not want to pervert their healing profession by taking innocent lives through the violence of abortion.
Serious Threat to Criminalise Pro-Life Doctors and Nurses
This article is an ominous warning of a new concerted effort to not only stigmatise those countries that seek to protect the most innocent life of all from the violence and injustice of abortion, but to criminalise Christian and other pro-life doctors and nurses and other health professionals from their right to choose to be conscientious objectors in such a highly controversial matter as abortion.
Stand Up and Speak Out for the Right to Life
Mofokeng urges her readers to “achieve the United Nation’s sustainable development goals,” by removing all obstructions to, what she calls, “sexual and reproductive health care,” which is a euphemistic term for killing pre-born babies. It is absolutely vital that we speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, that we have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. “Who will rise up for Me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for Me against the workers of iniquity?” Psalm 94:16
