China makes mockery of UN panel

Uyghur prisonersWith the presence of a notorious human rights abuser, a United Nations panel is proving it won't stand up for innocent human life anytime soon.

China has killed millions of unborn children through forced abortions, and is infamous for imprisoning and torturing its own citizens for their religious beliefs, but it has a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Brynne Lawrence of China Aid calls China’s presence absurd considering the UN has been told about the country’s terrible human rights abuses.

“We've even testified in front of this council about the human rights abuses against Christians, against Uyghur Muslims,” she complains. “And so, really, ignorance is not an excuse here. They have all of the evidence that they need.”

Groups such as China Aid work closely with contacts in the communist-run country, relaying stories of abuse. OneNewsNow has reported for years that China imprisons church pastors and carries away Muslim minorities to re-education camps.

Lawrence says the UN needs a human rights investigator willing to follow the evidence and rule on the facts presented to them regardless of the country.

“And so it's really alarming,” she says, “that China now has this voice.”
