My views on abortion and contraception are very far removed from the US Administration.
However upon reading that the US got booed at a UN conference merely for saying “”We emphasise the value of the ABC – abstinence, be faithful, and correct and consistent condom use where appropriate”. Even I would not disagree with that stance which is far removed from the Catholic Church which says never ever endorse condom use.
I was also staggered to see Amnesty International weighing in on the abortion issue. I have been a long-term and at times active supporter of Amnesty International for the superb work they have done with protesting against torture, detention of political prisoners etc. But the more they get involved in this sort of issue, the more they lose respect. And this is despite the fact I agree with them on this issue.
