In paying tribute to his many achievements as President between 1994 to 1999 we must not forget that he did not uphold the sanctity of life of children in the womb. The sanctity of human life and the dignity of the family are the foundation and guarantee of all other human rights. It is not possible to be a human rights crusader if one fails to uphold the human rights of the unborn.
Nelson Mandela was instrumental in unleashing through his vigorous support in 1996, violence against the nation’s women and unborn by signing into law the highly controversial Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Bill. This Bill permits abortion on demand. At the time of its passing it was considered to be the most pro abortion in the world.
