Amnesty International wants to legalize prostitution.
Who is Amnesty International? First, their stated objective is “…to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights and to demand justice when those rights have been abused.” But a sub-text incorporated in the reports is to push for sexual rights, including abortion. In addition there are two distinct legal entities; the organization which is an NGO, not a charity, and the Charitable Trust which funnels money to the organization.
Within the UK Charitable Trust – 60% of it’s expenditures are for ‘research’, 17% are spent to generate income, and just 17% is used to promote human rights. Their largest Donor, Comic Relief Charity, has been embroiled in their own scandals including the charge that they were investing donor contributions in tobacco, alcohol – and arms while promoting alcohol abstinence and anti-war rhetoric. Their ballooning wage cost now accounts for 76.5% of their total annual budget! As a result, the Charity decided to make it’s reports – less transparent.
Amnesty’s stated interest in legalizing prostitution is to provide health care availability for ‘sex workers’. But health care is available to everyone whether you are a prostitute or not, it’s called socialized medicine and Obamacare. Their other stated reasoning is to claim that sex is an inalienable right and making prostitution illegal infringes that right.
But how is this a “grave abuse of human right”? Who are they really trying to protect?
Founded in 1961 by Peter Bennenson, a Jewish man, he stepped down due to ill health in 1964. By 1966, Mr. Bennenson claimed Amnesty had been infiltrated by British Intelligence and asserted improper conduct by members of the executive. An investigation ensued that shattered Amnesty’s reputation. Bennenson resigned and new executives were named.
The British Newspaper, The Observer, recently made the following statement about the new Secretary General of the organization, an Indian, Salil Shetty:
“…the situation caused by Shetty’s sacking of staff working on core issues such as women’s rights and the death penalty: “Amnesty was one of 20th-century Britain’s greatest gifts to the world. Now it is a wreck.”
Amnesty Internationals reputation has a history of illegal issues, and even terrorist links according to NGO-Monitor:
Despite claims that it takes NO funding from political partioes or governments, it has received funding from the UK, The European Commission, The Netherlands, Norway and the US.
Amnesty paid off two executives over 833,000 euros to leave the organization. A part of the payoff was absolute silence regarding the facts.
In 2103 they were found to be working with an organization whose co-founder, Abd al-Rahman bin ‘Umayr al-Nu’aymi (Nu’aymi), was accused of financing Al Qaeda and its affiliates in Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Yemen,
In 2010, anti-semitic posts on it’s Facebook page, and statements made by its executive director of Finalnd’s branch were considered in violation of its ‘unbiased status’ and could be challenged as inciting hatred.
In 2012, their crisis response manager was found to be making hate statements against Jews.
In 2010, a staff member was suspended after she made allegations that Amnesty was aligned with a Taliban supporter.
In 2015, it was revealed that an amnesty campaignor was actually a leader of Islamic Jihad. Lastly, for a number of years, Amnesty has actively campaigned against Israel and the Jewish people calling for strikes, embargo’s, tribunals and radicalism.
Amnesty International is heavily funded by George Soros.
Think Progress, a George Soros blog, is pushing the legalized prostitution agenda claiming that – “sex workers and sex advocacy groups generally support the proposal, saying decriminalization or legalization is the best way to keep sex workers safe and healthy without increasing the number of trafficked women or minors involved in the sex industry.”
Think Progress sites another organization as advocating for the decriminalization, Human Rights Watch. But this organization is also funded by Soros who initially empowered it with no less than $100 million.
So, exactly what would be accomplished by the decriminalization?
Currently there is an ongoing investigation in the UK over illegal sex trafficking that dates back for decades, involves over 1400 politicians, entertainers, sports stars and the like, and estimates the number of victims in the hundreds of thousands. While the ‘investigation’ gets little press coverage, if prostitution were to suddenly become legal, what happens to the case? Would they be exonerated because prostitution is now legal?
Would sex trafficking be left to proliferate and profit as it has been shown to do in Germany since they legalized prostitution?
Bill Clinton has been named in the sex trafficking allegations charged against Epstein. If prostitution is legalized, what happens to those allegations?
If prostitution is legalized, is rape also? What happens to all the illegal and underage sex trafficking, do those boys and girls lose their right to protest their slavery? Will perpetrators, pimps and the like simply assert everything was consensual? Will the entire burgeoning industry be immune as prosecution becomes too difficult? And will children and stolen slaves be the silent victims?
Contrary to the whitewash, the illegal sex trafficking involves sex slavery, it involves underage children, and it is heinous. In the US alone, estimates put the number of children at over 300,000. Pimps generate $150,000-$200,000 per child – the younger, the more money. It’s a multi billion dollar business, and I imagine there are a lot of wealthy CEO’s, politicians, and entertainers that would love a piece of the action – physically and financially. Making it legal, gives them peace of mind. And relieves them of the hefty cost of bribery.
The US government estimates that 2-4 million people are victims of sex trafficking annually. Of those, 50% are children. Drugs are used to manipulate and confine. The average age of victims is 11-14. And lets be real. Victims are subject to HIV, drug addiction, rectal trauma, sleeping disorders, psychological disorders, fear, depression, guilt, shame, ptsd, death, threat of family harm, and the list goes on and on!
This is not the happy hooker portrayed by Amnesty, Human Rights Watch and Think Progress! This is a means of protecting the perpetrators and generating a profound increase in victims. SHAME!

A very informative post. I suppose I have ignored past criticism of Amnesty International and just focussed on the good points.
I think the problem is – we all do that…and gloss over or just put our heads in the sand.
It is more a case of ignorance on my part; I was completely unaware of what was actually occurring until I read your post and I have no reason to doubt you.
I now have a bit of a dilemma, because I am an Amnesty International member and I am currently involved in a couple of projects.
Perhaps once those are completed it will be time to call it a day. What used to be a good organisation is now tarnished.
Oh my – that is a really tough position. I am sorry. I have always believed that to have respect for oneself, one has to rise above the garbage, no matter how hard. Because, in the end, our belief in doing the right thing, is rooted in our faith and God. And how sad to fall. I am sorry you feel caught in the middle…truly.
Thank you. I will resolve it.
