Amnesty said it was not promoting abortion as a universal right.
But the group said that women had a right to choose, particularly in cases of rape or incest.
"No more financing of Amnesty International after the organisation's pro-abortion about-turn," said a statement from the Roman Catholic Church's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
Well, at least we know that all those cheap "Hitler Youth" shots about the new Pope (not to mention comparing him to the Emperor in Star Wars) aren't totally unfounded, right?
