Amnesty International: Now 50% More Pro-Choice!

by Isabel LaCoeur

Yes, it’s true!

Amnesty International has confirmed its controversial decision to back abortion in some circumstances, replacing its previous policy of neutrality.

The human rights group will campaign for woman to have access to abortion in cases including rape and incest.

They are also advocating that women who suffer complications after an abortion should be guaranteed access to medical care.

This is great news. Of course, various Christian organizations are threatening to withdraw their support, but Amnesty International doesn’t seem to be backing down. I’d like to see them back abortions in all circumstances, rather than just rape, medical complications and incest, but it is a good first step.
