ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the campaign of Amnesty International against capital punishment in the United States. The decision of the organization did not sit well with some members because of the sectarianization of the amnesty movement. Amnesty International cannot distinguish ideology from compassion. Instead of dealing itself with the issue of capital punishment, it should focus more on its other tasks related to human rights.
