Amnesty International, the world-wide human rights organization, notes that homosexuals are being killed, tortured and imprisoned around the world. They said that gays and lesbians are particularly vulnerable to human-rights abuses and face persecution in up to 60 countries for their sexual orientation. They noted that homosexual behavior is still illegal in Nigeria, Romania and India.

[They might have added the United States as well. Many states have anti-sodomy laws still on the books. Jamaica is another country that criminalizes homosexual behavior.]
