Amnesty International Faces Mass Resignations

From Australia:

AMNESTY International is facing upheaval and mass resignations after it decided last month to advocate that abortion be decriminalised worldwide.

Many Christians, especially Catholics, are expected to resign and may establish an alternative human rights organisation.

The Australian Catholic Bishops' Conference is considering its response, but a senior Catholic said yesterday he thought "a parting of the ways" was inevitable. Amnesty estimates that 500 Catholic schools in Australia have member groups, as do other Christian schools.

I anticipate the same thing will happen around the world. Too bad Amnesty doesn't recognize the human rights of unborn children.
