    Neuer Petitionstext: __Petition to the United Nations General Assembly,
    to the attention of UN Secretary-General António Guterres__
    The UN Human Rights Committee (HRCttee) wants to enforce abortion legalization until birth, ignoring all human rights of unborn children.
    But Article 1 UDHR says: ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights’. We are also born with legs and arms, in the same way our dignity and rights were already there long before birth.
    Since slavery and serfdom are prohibited, no one may treat unborn children as private property of their mothers.
    So far, the UN bodies have often striven for the complete legalization of abortions. Since then, however, a majority in the UN General Assembly regularly blocked such claims in all its resolutions.
    __As citizens of nations all over the world__ we respectfully call on the General Assembly to exercise its authority on all UN bodies and to adopt a resolution,
    - **confirming** that the inherent human dignity and equal human rights
    must be recognized for each member of the human family
    since the beginning of his physical existence at procreation,
    - **prohibiting** all UN bodies
    to require, support or recommend any abortion,
    as abortion violates human rights of children before their birth [4,5],
    - **confirming** that nobody can be authorized to declare or waive
    any obligation on a state or persons living there,
    independent and indisputable by the organs of that state,
    as this violates the state’s sovereignty [7,17],
    - **prohibiting** all UN bodies
    to claim any obligations of souveran states
    that are not part of ratified treaties [7].
    - **establishing** an UN Special Rapporteur or Independent Expert
    on violence and discrimination before birth,
    - **instructing** the UN Secretary-General to reprove any member
    of the Human Rights Committee who did not vote against the support of abortion in GC No 36 [1], due to violation of article 5 ICCPR [6], and in future to take disciplinary action against any member of UN bodies that violates above prohibitions up to immediate dismissal.
    **2. In **In case the General Assembly will not adopt**
    a resolution according to these requests, **we will escalate**
    and request each Contracting State of the ICCPR by its own, sovereign decision [8] to withdraw its Declarations on Competence of the Human Rights Committee
    a) to receive and consider inter state communications [9] and
    b) to receive and consider complaints of persons [10].
    The UN Human Rights Committee actually has been mandated to oversee compliance with the Civil Covenant (ICCPR), and to explain human rights by 'General Comments'. While a 'General Comment' is not legally binding, it is used as a reference text and means of exerting pressure on States. Currently, its 18 independent members are planning a new General Comment on the Right to Life (GC No 36 [1]). But herein they claim in paragraph 9:
    ___'States parties must provide safe access to abortion___ (..) _in situations in which carrying a pregnancy to term would cause the woman substantial pain or suffering_ (..)' [optional and veiling sections suppressed]
    Neither the existence of the unborn child nor its human rights are mentioned in a word. Instead the HRCttee invents here a novel duty of states to provide legal __abortions without any limitations__, as nobody can guarantee that a birth will take place without substantial pain.
    Contrary to the wording of human rights [5,11,12,14,15], despite the conviction of virtually all UN states, that consider it necessary to restrict abortion [2], and despite extensive rejoinders [3], the HRCttee refuses stubbornly to withdraw this claim.
    This is unacceptable. We require a basic change.

    Neue Begründung: As summarized in ‘*Seven Claims of the Smallest Humans*’ (www.goo.gl/SpJFDQ) human rights of children must be recognized already before they are born.
    With its planned General Comment [1] the CCPR HRCttee fails to defend human rights in that it
    - ignores the simple claim of article 6 ICCPR:
    ‘___Every human being has the inherent right to life___’,
    - ignores all __scientific facts__ like DNA code that prove the humanity and uniqueness of each child since its procreation,
    - ignores the basic understanding of __human dignity__ as an entity that can neither grow nor diminish, regardless of body size, shape, health or abilities,
    - ignores the basic understanding of the __equal value__ of each human being,
    - requires lethal discrimination against the most vulnerable children,
    - ignores all __violence and torture__ on children before their birth, in order to seek for safety and freedom to offenders,
    - ignores all __harm to women__ by abortions despite they were executed completely professional,
    - ignores the ratified, __ordinary meaning of human rights__ (ICCPR) [4,5,11,12], as required by the rules for interpretation of international treaties [13], and, in case of ambiguous or obscure statements only, in the context of their historic negotiations [14,15],
    - interprets human rights, as if these were ___‘living documents’___ [16] with a changeable meaning,
    - replaces explicit human rights by the __vague opinion__ of a rich and influential minority,
    - invents and claims __new obligations of states__ without any mandate or confirmation of them,
    - ignores the conviction of nearly __all UN states__ [2] who do prohibit abortion at least partly,
    - ignores all counter arguments of __all 20 academics__ that submitted legal concerns [3], and
    - ignores all counter arguments of __NGO contributions__ (66 from 81 NGOs) [3].
    This is unacceptable and inappropriate to an UN body.
    We need UN bodies recognizing and defending human rights of all members of the human family.
    We can not solve social problems by killing humans.
    Pregnant women need something better than abortion.
    We need solutions for life.

    Neither the existence of the unborn child nor its human rights are mentioned in a word. Instead the CCPR invents here a novel duty of states to provide legal __abortions without any limitations__, as nobody can guarantee that a birth will take place without substantial pain.
    While a 'General Comment' is not legally binding, it is used as a reference text and as a lever against states. Contrary to the wording of human rights [5,11,12,14,15], despite the conviction of virtually all UN states, that consider it necessary to restrict abortion [2], and despite extensive rejoinders [3], the CCPR refuses stubbornly to withdraw this claim.
    This is unacceptable. We require a basic change.
    As summarized in ‘*Seven Claims of the Smallest Humans*’ (www.goo.gl/SpJFDQ) human rights of children must be recognized already before they are born. Even UN experts must not cancel human rights!
    __As citizens of nations all over the world,
    we sign this petition,__
    considering the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Preamble),
    __because__ _recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
    __because__ disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind,
    __because__ the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person._
    **1. Respectfully, we make a formal request to the General Assembly**
    to use its authority on all UN bodies and to conclude a resolution,
    - **confirming** that the inherent human dignity and equal human rights
    must be recognized for each member of the human family
    since the beginning of his physical existence at procreation,
    - **prohibiting** all UN bodies
    to require, support or recommend any abortion,
    as abortion violates human rights of children before their birth [4,5],
    - **confirming** that nobody can be authorized to declare or waive
    any obligation on a state or persons living there,
    independent and indisputable by the organs of that state,
    as this violates the state’s sovereignty [7,17],
    - **prohibiting** all UN bodies
    to claim any obligations of souveran states
    that are not part of ratified treaties [7].
    - **establishing** an UN Special Rapporteur or Independent Expert
    on violence and discrimination before birth,
    - **instructing** the UN Secretary-General to reprove any member
    of the Human Rights Committee who did not vote against the support of abortion in GC No 36 [1], due to violation of article 5 ICCPR [6], and in future to take disciplinary action against any member of UN bodies that violates above prohibitions up to immediate dismissal.
    **2. In case the General Assembly will not conclude**
    a resolution according to these requests, **we will escalate**
    and request each Contracting State of the ICCPR by its own,
    sovereign decision [8] to withdraw its Declarations on Competence
    of the Human Rights Committee (CCPR)
    to receive and consider inter state communications [9] and
    to receive and consider complaints of persons [10].
