AI's "secret" policy betrays human rights values

Amnesty International's recently adopted policy to advocate the right to an abortion as a human right has been condemned as a betrayal of the organization's values.

Talking of the decision Amnesty International is currently trying to keep under wraps, the US National Director of Priests for Life, Fr Frank Pavone, said, "Amnesty International purports to be an advocate for human rights, yet it apparently now thinks that it's acceptable for governments to trample on the most important, fundamental right, the right to life."

Fr Pavone continued: "When will we extend amnesty to unborn children?"
