Amnesty International Is Going Ahead with Plans to Begin Promoting Abortion

Well, Amnesty International officials have read the letter sent by 74 pro-life Congressmen asking the ostensible human rights organization to forego the promotion of abortion rights. And they have given their answer -- leave us alone; we know what we are doing.

"AI is not debating whether women have the right to terminate pregnancies under any circumstances," the group said.

Instead, the organization, which has two million members spread throughout 74 countries, is debating whether or not to advocate for better health care for women who have complications from botched abortions and whether to support legalizing abortions in cases of sexual abuse or a pregnancy's risk to the mother's life.

The human rights group also said it may pursue "the removal of criminal penalties for those who seek or provide abortions."

This is bad news indeed and very suggestive that Amnesty International has known all along what they would be doing; namely, pushing abortion.

As I have encouraged you to do previously, please contact Amnesty International and express your opinion about this dastardly and hypocritical move.
