US bishops and Amnesty International: no "neutrality"

WASHINGTON, D.C., JULY 3, 2007 (Zenit.org).- The U.S. bishops are urging Amnesty International to restore its neutral position on abortion.

While I understand the bishops' concern, I think that, as long as they're at it, they might as well go all the way.

Amnesty International, if it claims to be the guardian of human rights, should not take a "neutral position" on abortion...it should condemn it, just as it condemns other outrages against human rights.
