.- Human Life International, one of the most prominent pro-life organizations in the world, has reiterated its call to all pro-life advocates to write to Amnesty International (AI) and petition the organization not to promote abortion as a “human right.”

The leaders of AI are set to decide on May 20 if the organization will embrace the idea of abortion as a “human right.”

According to a press release by HLI, “The urgent need to write many letters to Amnesty International is due not only to the fact that their annual meeting is drawing near (May 20, 2006), but also because the British pro-life organization United For Life has sent four letters to the group's London headquarters in order to dissuade them from declaring abortion to be ‘an international human right’ and so far, has not received any response.”

Officials at HLI speculate that “This is probably due to the fact that many people and organizations that are either affiliated with Amnesty International, or supporters are unaware that this organization, at its highest levels, has unfortunately distorted the authentic concept of human rights.  Because of all this, we earnestly ask you to please write this organization and ask that it cease promoting abortion as an ‘international right’.”

“If Amnesty International persists in this campaign, we can only imagine the great harm that it will bring to the pro-life cause due to the ‘prestige’ that this organization has in the eyes of many,” HLI warned.

Letters can be sent to Amnesty International at the following address:
