EACH CHILD HAS THE RIGHT TO LIFE
Recognizing that every child has the inherent right to life (UNCRC Art. 6); and,
Whereas the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection before, as well as after birth (UNCRC Preamble);
We call upon States Parties and the United Nations system to ensure the survival and optimal development of children (UNCRC Art. 6; Children’s Summit, Art. 19).
