Rights end at birth

At the moment I can’t think of anything more revolting than confident assertions on radio by right-wing anti-abortion Catholic psychiatrists talking about how treatments exist for suicidal ideation.

It’s pointless to point out contradictions in their behaviour since it is really a question of the unity of their thought: rights, by their definition, end at birth, with the sole exception of the right of the State to subjugate and control as it sees fit.

However it still bears pointing out that none of these people exercised about human rights on national media today ever raised their voice against the stripping away of social and economic rights conducted by consecutive governments over the past five years, and, in concrete terms, against public spending cuts that have the effect of creating the material basis for suicidal ideation.
