Amnesty International has changed its abortion policy to one of broad support for “safe and legal abortion.”
In 2007, the human rights organization dropped its neutral position on abortion, but insisted that it only opposed criminalizing abortion, and didn’t “promote it as a human right.” However, after years of aggressively promoting abortion all over the world, this pretense has now been dropped.
The organization quickly became one of the biggest promoters of abortion in the world. It campaigned for abortion in Ireland years before this year’s referendum, releasing a video that many commentators denounced as being anti-catholic. They actively campaigned for the repeal of the Eighth Amendment (and activists were filmed making misleading statements about abortion in Ireland) and since then have been at the forefront of calls to impose abortion on Northern Ireland.
