The following comes from an August 9 story on the C-FAM website.
Amnesty International, a human rights organization that used to be abortion neutral, is now using the problem of maternal mortality to advocate for abortion. In a new report, ostensibly on medical care for maternal health, Amnesty calls on governments to repeal abortion laws and conscience protection for medical workers who may object. They also call for public health systems to train and equip health care providers to perform abortions.
Amnesty’s “Maternal Health is a Human Right” campaign focuses attention on four countries: Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Peru, and the United States. Amnesty argues that maternal mortality will decrease if it is treated as a human rights issue, if costs to health care are covered by governments, and if a right for women to control their reproductive and sex lives is established.
The United States’ maternal mortality ratio is only 21 deaths per 100,000 live births compared to Burkina Faso’s 300 and Sierra Leone’s 890 deaths per 100,000 births.
The Amnesty’s report that in Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, and Peru, that women face death because of inadequate medical conditions and corruption. But then the report goes further arguing that abortion is needed, too.
Even though Amnesty says the United States has the best health care system in the world, the group urges that abortion services be expanded and obstacles eliminated, including what they call racial and cost barriers. They say abortion services are restricted for Native Americans and women on Medicaid since abortions are only paid for by the government in cases of rape, incest, or when the woman’s life is in danger. These women can still obtain an abortion, but it would not be covered by federal insurance.…

Amnesty International wants to kill more babies! Where’s the amnesty for the babies? More proof that leftists are totally incapable of a logical thought process.
Abortion is murder! Abortion is anti-women!
The actual amnesty is for the bank accounts of the executives of Amnesty International.
You got that RIGHT!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

Actually, when you think about it, the one consistent idea in all leftist movements is the necessity of killing. Consider the French rev.,Russian,Chinese,Spanish etc etc and etc the destruction of the Church and families, tradition and beauty is the common ground in their propaganda and actions. Death and destruction always come first! When are these incredibly foolish people going to see that there is never going to be a ‘good part’ at the end of any of their ‘movies’ unless you think France is a happy ending! Utterly Satanic!
They have been pushing for birth-control and abortion for a few years now, so this is not new news. It is sad that we have few and fewer organzions that we can help nowadays: AI, Care, CRS, USCCB, Girl Scouts, and Catholic Charities, for starters, are all misleading us and helping to destroy God’s plan for us, willingly or blindly. +JMJ+
Why does the left (AI is FAR left) get away with framing the debate on abortion as a “health” issue ? What standards are they using ? Is pregnancy now a disease ? The organization lost a lot of credibility years ago by turning left. Now they are doubling down on being wrong.
Another vile left wing organization
Even with all those maternal deaths, eg 890 per 100,000, the number of women living is much greater than when Amnasty works its death pogroms.
Abortion in the USA murders approx 1 MILLION innocent babies each year. – Approx 39 MILLION since 1973.
This is the biggest and most disgraceful Human and Civil Rights violation our Country has ever seen.
Where is Amnesty International?
On internet see: ” Endowment for Human Development “.
Amnesty Int’l supports: baby killing human and civil rights violations; supports murder for convenience; supports violating Doctors and other medical professionals civil rights not to commit murder.
Amnesty int’l decries the horrible conditions of medical care for pregnant women, but call for the same medical groups to be allowed to performs abortions? How about if they call for cleaning up the medical monopoly, get USAID, etc groups out of those countries. Then all medical care would be improved and so would the life expectancy of women and children.
