Canadian MP accuses Amnesty International: victims of prostitution

A Canadian Member of Parliament is accusing Amnesty International of supporting the “rights of pimps over victims” after a policy document was leaked showing the international advocacy group calling for the legalization of prostitution, reports LifeSiteNews.

In the document, Amnesty International argues that men who trade cash for sexual access to a woman’s body ought to be free from government “interference” because they are simply “exercising personal autonomy.”

In the leaked document, Amnesty International says it is “opposed to the criminalization or punishment of activities related to the buying or selling of consensual sex between adults,” adding its belief that “seeking, buying, selling and soliciting paid sex are acts protected from state interference.”

The charity, known as an advocate for political prisoners and for its condemnation of torture, believes that governments have a “positive obligation to reform their laws and develop and implement systems and policies that eliminate discrimination” against those selling themselves for cash.

Canadian Member of Parliament Joy Smith condemned the policy in a statement last week.

“We need to recognize prostitution for what it is,” she said. “It is inherently harmful to women and girls and therefore must be eliminated. Legalization is the wrong approach.”

“AI has built its reputation on advocating for victims around the world. Why is AI abandoning victims now? Amnesty International has squandered its moral authority and is losing its way.”
