AMNESTY CONTINUES TO HOLD OUT AND ON TO ILLEGAL FUNDING FROM GEORGE SOROS’ OPEN SOCIETY.
(Good article though a little dated: Amnesty International Ireland, are still holding both out and on to the illegal money from George Soros’ Open Society: Meanwhile Bishop Fonsie Cullinan of Waterford diocese, has called for people to challenge the Standards in Public Office / S.I.P.O. over the money saga with Amnesty)
.- Amnesty International is in no position to oppose an Irish law against foreign political funding now that it is under scrutiny for taking money from U.S. financier George Soros’ Open Society Foundations to target the country’s abortion restrictions, Irish pro-life advocates have said.
“The arrogance they have shown in the past few days on this issue is staggering. They are now trying to argue that they have a ‘human right’ to take money from billionaires to push to have abortion legalization in Ireland, while they also argue that preborn children should not have the most basic human right of all – the right to life,” Niamh Ui Bhriain, a spokesperson for the Irish-based Life Institute, told CNA Dec. 11.
She said the action shows the reliance of Irish pro-abortion rights campaigners on foreign funding. Millions of dollars in overseas funding have targeted Ireland’s pro-life laws for decades, as have other U.S. groups like the Center for Reproductive Rights.
“It’s made for a very un-level playing field in the abortion debate in Ireland,” she said.
The Republic of Ireland’s Standards in Public Office Commission has told the human rights and pro-abortion legalization group to return about $160,000 in funds to the Soros foundations. According to the commission, the money violated Irish law barring foreign donations to third party groups seeking to influence the outcome of a referendum campaign.

Amnesty All Out For Abortion
I can’t believe I used to give money to these people. Since when is killing babies a human right? How can they spend so much more money promoting abortion than fighting against torture and other urgent human rights abuses? Rather than spending money on abortion we should be spending it on providing better healthcare and support for all pregnant women around the world.
