We’re awfully sorry we missed Human Rights Day Friday. Fortunately, Amnesty International didn’t and gave us this guidance as to what is a human right and what isn’t. We’re old enough to remember when Amnesty International was about letter-writing campaigns to free political prisoners, but we also remember when the “CL” in ACLU stood for “civil liberties.”
Here’s Amnesty’s pinned tweet from Friday, noting that you have the right to life.
You have the right to life ❤️
You have the right to rest 😴
You have the right to privacy 🔒
You have the right to education 📖
You have the right to seek asylum 🏠
These — and more — are our fundamental human rights. Happy #HumanRightsDay

About an hour later, Amnesty clarified that you don’t have a right to life if you’re unborn:

Funny they’d single that one out.
No, it isn’t a human right.

LOL, 🤡s, killing people is a right that literally no one has, but keep on trying to normalize murder.
What about the human rights of the child to live? #HumanRightsDay

When the right to life is the first right listed in the Declaration🤔

It's quite the opposite. It's infringing on someone's rights.

Which human right are they referring to?.. Because willful or intentional abortion amounts to killing. Unless on medical grounds, abortion is not human right but killing.

No. Those babies have the right to life.
Let them live. 🙏🏼

The humans who are aborted might disagree – if they had a chance to do so.

"Human right" ?
What do you people guide yourselves by?

Being born is a human right

Why take this loser issue on? All it can do is threaten support for your real, vital mission.

When did your organization go completely off the rails?
Because this is straight out of bizarro-world, asserting that it is a human right for a mother to kill a defenseless innocent.
At times necessary? Arguably so.
But an unalloyed right? Morally bankrupt.

Amnesty USA declared its full support of the unlimited and unrestricted termination and dismemberment of unborn human beings.

Abstinence is a human right.

Birth control is a human right that doesn’t infringe on any one else’s rights.

You have the right to not get pregnant

I would usually just throw down a 🤡 on one of these but this is just pure demonic evil.

What a mockery of all you supposedly stand for.

Those political prisoners will be glad to know they have the right to an abortion.
If you can kill a baby you better not be pissed I don’t want a booster #HumanRightsDay
