Back here in Ireland, Americans sometimes get what are all too often ill-informed and accusatory lectures about our country’s record on protecting human rights. In response, we can proudly point to a wide array of forward-thinking laws that vindicate the rights and freedoms of individuals and groups in the United States.
Many of these laws are the envy of advocates around the world – the Americans with Disabilities Act springs immediately to mind – and there is much we can rightly celebrate. That the United States, along with China, Iran and a dwindling group of other countries whose values we generally do not share, still executes people in 2011 is nothing for us to be proud of, however. It’s a disgrace.
