Amnesty International is betraying its mission by campaigning for abortion in Northern Ireland rather than focusing on genuine human rights.

Genuine human rights campaigners are bewildered by Amnesty’s campaign to overturn NI’s abortion laws.

Those laws exist to protect vulnerable women from harm and unborn children from death.

Amnesty was founded to use the truth on behalf of victims, but its campaign includes misleading people about the truth about dangerous abortion pills bought online and used illegally.

We urge politicians not to give in Amnesty’s attempt to make them feel guilty about firm but fair penalties for the serious crime of unlawful killing of the innocent.
