Torture is illegal everywhere in the world, at all times, under all circumstances. There are no exceptions to the universal ban against torture; it can never be justified and is never a legal option.
Torture is illegal under U.S. Law, International Law, The Uniform Code of Military Justice, UN Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Article 3 Common to the Four Geneva Conventions.
Torture is a crime. For more information, read this article by Curt Goering, CVT executive director.
Reject torture today.
