Amnesty is quite specific in its support of political prisoners and other prisoners of conscience.
It makes perfect sense that they support the rights of people who are imprisoned or otherwise persecuted for supporting the right to choose abortion, contraceptives or other means of birth control.
Such a liberal view of supporting a persons individual liberty naturally goes against orthodox religions desire to control all aspects of a persons life. [So much for the doctrine of free will]
The Catholic Church’s primitive, backward and unsympathetic stance on contraception proves its continuing irrelevance in the fight for human rights.
How the Catholic Church, and many other Xian denominations, can claim to be supporting human rights when they actively campaign against contraception, separation of church and state and homosexuals, continues to baffle me.
but it does prove the truism
“Religion is an insult to human dignity. Without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.” – Steven Weinberg, Nobel Prize winning Physicist
