Kudos to Amnesty International for Maintaining Prochoice Vision

Amnesty International, the organization that works to protect human rights world wide, voted last week to maintain their stance on abortion as part of a woman's right to be free of fear, threat and coercion. Sexual assault and battery is a widespread tool of war in many battling nations like Darfur and Afghanistan, and the consequences of rape and other grave human rights violations are severe and can be lifelong.

Not surprisingly, the Catholic church and other anti-woman organizations have vowed to discontinue support over this issue.

Kudos to Amnesty for staying strong and doing the right thing for women's human rights!
