Amnesty International calls for landmark U.N. bill

Amnesty International calls for landmark U.N. bill

Amnesty International on Tuesday called for the United Nations Human Rights Commission to pass a resolution condemning discrimination against gay men and lesbians, Agence France-Presse reports. Expected to be voted on Wednesday or Thursday, the resolution would be the first from the U.N. to address discrimination based on sexual orientation. "Governments who vote against [the resolution] will be signaling that they no longer believe...that all human beings are equal in dignity and rights," Amnesty said in a statement. The resolution was proposed by Brazil and is supported by 19 other countries, most of them in Europe.
