Amnesty International attacks Poland abortion policy [CNA]

New York City, N.Y., Jun 27, 2009 / 05:04 pm
(CNA).- Amnesty International has continued its promotion of abortion with a report on the state of human rights which criticizes Poland for denying Polish women “access to abortion.” The organization’s actions could reflect its partnership with a pro-abortion group to redefine abortion as a “human right.”

The Amnesty International (AI) 2009 report’s entry on Poland cites May 2008 criticism of its abortion policy by the Human Rights Council, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) reports.

Amnesty also criticized the Polish government for failing to implement the European Court of Human Rights’ 2007 ruling in the case Tysiac v. Poland, which declared a duty to “establish effective mechanisms for ensuring women have access to abortion where it is legal.”

To quote Mother Teresa: “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” :sad_yes:

Hey AI what about the human rights of unborn children! This makes me sick. How dissapointed would the orignal Catholic founders of AI be.

Maybe AI should listen to some of the early feminist…

Susan B. Anthony
In her publication The Revolution, was written:
“Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh, thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!”

Abortion was referred to as “child murder.”
The Revolution, 4(1):4 July 8, 1869

Mary Wollstonecraft the so called 1st feminist
As early as 1792, Mary Wollstonecraft wrote “A Vindication of the Rights of Women,” which Susan B. Anthony admired enough to serialize in The Revolution. After decrying, in scathing 18th century terms, the sexual exploitation of women, she said:
“Women becoming, consequently, weaker…than they ought to be…have not sufficient strength to discharge the first duty of a mother; and sacrificing to lasciviousness the parental affection…either destroy the embryo in the womb, or cast if off when born. Nature in every thing demands respect, and those who violate her laws seldom violate them with impunity.”

Alice Paul
The author of the original Equal Rights Amendment (1923) opposed the later trend of linking the E.R.A. with abortion. A colleague recalls her saying:
“Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.”

Irony is how a “human rights” organization wants to deny all human rights to one group of people (the unborn)

Yeah, that is ironic in a very twisted, unfortunate way. :frowning:
