To the people of Ireland…

A satirical swipe at Amnesty International by Youth Defence.

“When Amnesty International isn’t busy fighting for the rights of pimps and johns by trying to legalise prostitution, they’re working tirelessly to stop the very worst terrorists among us and the greatest threat to all human rights: babies. Little tiny babies. Specifically, by lobbying to legalize abortion, or “abertion” as they call it, in Ireland.”

Gulp.

    That’s weird. But it’s true that Amnesty have lost all credibility by becoming cheerleaders for abortion.

    1. Don Pidgeoni

      Fit you maybe but no, not true for others. Especially since they have had this vote since at least 2007.

        1. Don Pidgeoni

          I’m surprised they didn’t have it sooner tbh especially since it was quite restricted support. But did you have a point?

      ‘Amnesty have lost all credibility’

      No, they’ve lost credibility with those who, many of which hold religious views over medical and scientific views, are against abortion in the face of overwhelming public opinion and competent medical practice. Lets be real here, most people share their views on access to abortion. And why is everyone always acussed of being a cheerleader, like it’s all a conspiracy or something? They’re just joining everyone else in a popular campaign to remove the 8th and grant access to abortion that is in fact, already going on.

      Or should be just keep pretending it’s not happening? Jaysus, remember the days when there were ‘no gay’ people in Ireland. Well it turns out they were actually there all along! Would you believe it…

        1. Bobby

          According to the Red C poll 81% were in favour of widening the grounds for abortion: 45% were in favour of access to abortion as women choose, while 36% were in favour of abortion only where a woman’s life or health is at risk, or in cases of rape, incest and fatal foetal anomaly.

          So that would be 81% of people polled said they agree with abortion in certain circumstances, and more than half of those people went one step further and said they believe there should be more open access to abortion. That’s an overwhelming majority right? Or, am I missing something?

          1. newsjustin

            They’ll all vote for the Labour Party I guess, to ensure Labour are in power to deliver a vote on the 8th amendment. We should see all the other parties clamoring to declare their pro choice credentials right about now – otherwise Labour will win in a landslide. Anytime now…..

          2. Bobby

            Looks like newsjustin is having problems grasping the idea that popular civil society and political representation in a parliament are not one and the same. Sorry yo, that poll is pretty clear cut, no matter how much you try to ignore the numbers.

          3. Bobby

            Out of the %81 polled who agreed with abortion, %45 were in favour of more open access. More than half of those who agreed with abortion want more liberalised laws.

            Yeh get me brah!?

    Hang on a second. What the hell is this now? There’s no way this could be anti choice. What a way to ingratiate yourself to the population, by being an american putting on an Irish accent and then laughing at every backward stereotype we have while preaching at us about our probably most backward stereotype abortion. These people can’t be this fupping dumb. This has to be a double bluff, and if not, then what’s most offensive about this is the stupidity of what of the message they are putting across. If it’s real it won’t last the night, need to make a mirror of this sharpish.

      Also are they suggesting that Amnesty Ireland are Americans pretending to be Irish?! That’s a bit rich coming from them.

      1. Lorcan Nagle

        It’s a common distraction tactic recently. Claim the other side are taking American money before someone can point out they are.

    At least destiny will never have to worry about having an abortion. Or getting pregnant. Or looked at with anything put disgust tinged with a tiny bit of pity

    1. jeremy kyle

      Who am I kidding? I’m a masochist. Of course I’ll fall for the click bait, that was fuppin’ repugnant.

    I think it’s hilarious. Certainly a refreshing break from those condescending Tara Flynn videos anyway.

      Honest A: The non-munters are busy with other stuff like living their own lives, instead of interfering in the lives of others, born or unborn, which is none of their concern.

      1. sǝɯǝɯ ʇɐ pɐq

        And remember, not ALL munters are monsters.
        Look at Kathy Burke for instance, or Jo Brand, or Louis Walsh.

    “Amnesty have lost all credibility”
    “groupthink”
    “media driven campaign”

    All I need is “preborn human” and I’ll have a full house on Anti-Choice Buzzword Bingo

    These people are wackos, but Amnesty ARE still a disgrace to be involving themselves in domestic political campaigns.

    Amnesty International’s sole job was always to stick up for people who have been imprisoned by despots around the world for political reasons, to shine a light on these cases, let the people know they haven’t been forgotten and left to die — or worse — in a jail. To remind our own politicians that what our Saudi ‘allies’, and our Chinese ‘partners’, and our Russian ‘friends’ do to political prisoners is NOT ok.

    But now Amnesty in Ireland, let by Mr O’Gorman (who is perhaps the greatest self-promoter since Trotsky) has apparently forgotten about all that boring torture stuff far away to concentrate on running political campaigns here. The fact that I agree with the stances Amnesty is taking doesn’t make it right. They should get back to their job, or else quit and form a new political campaign group fit change here.

    1. sǝɯǝɯ ʇɐ pɐq

      Are Amnesty not ‘shining a light’ on a repressive injustice here?

      I believe they are.
      I’m sure I’m not the only one.

      1. sǝɯǝɯ ʇɐ pɐq

        PS.
        We all remember Trotsky.
        He was in my Religion class at school actually, but we never spoke. He was very shy.

    2. Don Pidgeoni

      Or, they could do both *gasp*. It’s sure as hell a human rights issue for me as a woman.

    3. Stephanenny

      That’s mostly nonsense. I’m always seeing amnesty publicise drives to stop torture. Torture is what they started with but they do more human rights now. They did mental health here, domestic violence in the UK and Ireland.

      And torture and imprisonment wise they’ve been campaigning tirelessly for Ibrahim Halawa since he was imprisoned in Egypt, helping his family and lobbying the government raising awareness. They’ve been discussing that poor kid in Saudi a for weeks, they had a petition to save those girls in India who were to be raped as a punishment to their brother for his crimes.
