SAD NEWS: Amnesty Int’l (@Amnesty) supports decriminalization/legalization of prostitution. Tell them NO! ~~~~~~ (Petition and other links further down.)
[Daily Mail] — Laws that ban people from buying or selling sex should be scrapped because they breach their human rights, according to Amnesty International.
A policy document drawn up by the charity claims that prostitutes, pimps and men who buy sex are simply ‘exercising their autonomy’ and should be allowed to do so ‘free from government interference’.
The proposal, which also bizarrely compares prostitutes to coal miners and domestic servants, was uncovered by writer Julie Bindel.
It has now sparked a major row within the organisation, which is best known for its attempts to free political prisoners and campaigns against torture.
Last night critics said Amnesty was ‘losing the plot’ with one former member accusing the organisation of ‘betraying women’s rights’. They told the Mail: ‘We do not solve the problems for women in the developing world by encouraging them to be prostitutes. Who benefits from that? The men. Prostitution is a form of exploitation and abuse – not a choice.’
