What's wrong with this story?
If you said the problem was that Amnesty International was unfair in discriminating against Students for Life, then you've got it all wrong! Perhaps they were unfair or perhaps not, but that is not the problem. The problem is that Students for Life was subject to discrimination by Amnesty International. This illustrates the importance of our need to step up to the plate and get a handle on human rights events. This was an event put on by Amnesty International which is pro-abortion, so it stands to reason that, unfair or not, they would discriminate against a group that is in opposition to their viewpoint. The problem is not that Amnesty International is being discriminatory; the problem is that Students for Life hasn't taken the lead in standing for human rights. Students for Life should have been the one hosting the Human Rights Day event in the first place. Indeed, it should have been Students for Life that was denying Amnesty International a place at the human rights event, because Amnesty International is a promoter of the gravest human rights abuse on earth!
In other words, Amnesty International was having a human rights day celebration. Students for Life was not. Amnesty International turned down Students for Life at their human rights day event. Students for Life wasn't able to turn down Amnesty International, citing their support of prenatal violence. So who does the community see as the human rights advocates, and which position in regards to abortion are they going to see as the "human rights" position?
Now don't get me wrong. I am not trying to pick on Students for Life. I am sure they are a fine group of students. As a matter of fact, they are a better-than-fine group of students. At least they tried to participate and stand up for the rights of the preborn on Human Rights Day, which was more than most pro-life/anti-abortion groups did. But the situation illustrates the problem before us. Instead of being the human rights leaders, we are the ones begging and cow-towing to the so-called "human rights" groups. This needs to end. We need to take the lead. We need to stand up strong and resolute and make it clear that we are the human rights leaders of our day and we will not tolerate those who support killing little children claiming to be so.
Until we stand up and loudly declare that ours is a human rights battle and take the lead in the human rights effort we will not see success.
