New Zealand AI supports abortion advocacy

AI New Zealand supports entering into abortion advocacy. This decision was made recently at Amnesty’s annual meeting in Wellington. A final decision will be made by the international body.

Amnesty’s current position on abortion is neutral, it now sees abortion as a human right that should be promoted and protected. It now proposes to actively fight to deny the human rights of unborn children and their inalienable right to life. In taking this step it is turning its back on human rights. Abortion entails the destruction of an innocent unborn child, the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family.
