Amnesty International Loses U.S. Bishops’ Support

The U.S. bishops condemned Amnesty International’s recent decision to support abortion, and said that it will only work with organizations that promote the right to life from conception to natural death.

“In promoting abortion,” said Bishop Skylstad, “Amnesty divides its own members — many of whom are Catholics and others who defend the rights of unborn children — and jeopardizes its support by people in many nations, cultures and religions who share a consistent commitment to all human rights.”

The bishop said that while the “essential work of protecting human life and promoting human dignity must carry on … we will seek to do so in authentic ways, working most closely with organizations who do not oppose the fundamental right to life from conception to natural death.”

“True commitment to women’s rights,” he continued, “puts us in solidarity with women and their unborn children. It does not pit one against the other but calls us to advocate on behalf of both.”

Now, will they apply this logic the Democrat Party and pro-abortion Catholic politicians as well?
