Hunman Rights for All?

I am in Western Pennsylvania today, attending my godson's college graduation. I found this opinion in the local newspaper "The Tribune-Review." It is written by Kris Sanders / Squirrel Hill...I think it's an important read....

Since the late 1970s, the Chinese government's "one-child policy" has resulted in forced sterilizations and an estimated 400 million forced abortions. And only God knows how many of the women died because of the unsanitary conditions in which these crimes took place.

Blind self-taught lawyer Chen Guangcheng interviewed thousands of women who endured forced abortions, publicly denounced these atrocities and even attempted to sue the government on the victims' behalf. Consequently, for years, he and his family have been subjected to imprisonment, isolation, beatings and various other forms of torture. Of course, the Chinese government wants to hide his story. But are they the only ones who want to hide it?

While in China, Hillary Clinton said there are "universal human rights" that all governments should recognize. Quite so. But is the Obama administration, which has always supported the "right to choose" to kill the unborn, really an ally of universal human rights?
