Life Foundation in Spain denounces Amnesty International embracing abortion

.- The director of the Life Foundation in Spain, Manuel Cruz, has denounced Amnesty International saying that in allowing abortion in certain cases, the organization “has made a serious break with the Right to Life, the first of all human rights, and therefore jeopardizes its excellent history as a defender of human rights.”

Several weeks ago, the director of AI, Widney Brown, told Reuters the organization had decided to support legal abortion in cases of rape, incest and life of the mother.

“The Right to Life is recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” Cruz said.  “Human rights cannot be general and therefore there can be no exceptions.”

“The object of the human right to life is all human life, from the moment of conception until natural death,” he added, explaining that, “If each human being is not respected and understood as such, with the dignity intrinsic to mankind, first feticide is accepted, which is a crime, and later its legalization is encouraged, as AI seeks to do now.”

“If AI encourages the legalization of the killing of the most defenseless human beings, with what authority will I continue denounce other human rights abuses?  How will it fight against the death penalty or torture, if it encourages the death and torture of the defenseless in the womb who have no voice?” Cruz questioned.

He also stressed that subjecting a woman who has become pregnant through rape or incest is akin to “raping her anew.”  “Her partner or family member taking her to have an abortion is just as serious as repeating the incest.  In such a situation, the best thing is to train counselors who can heal the wounds in the woman who desires to have an abortion and to dissuade her from doing to, thus avoiding post-abortion trauma, which is much worse.”
