Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading pro-life Congressman has placed internal documents from the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) into the Congressional Record. The action makes the documents publicly available in light of threatening letters CFAM and LifeNews.com have received seeking to stop the dissemination of the materials.
The Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (CFAM), a pro-life organization that lobbies at the United Nations, announced earlier this month that an anonymous source sent it copies of a 60-page document summarizing the conclusions of strategic planning meetings held by CRR in late October.
Pro-life Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) entered the memo into the Congressional record on Wednesday making it permanently a matter of public record.
"It is critical that both the American and foreign public are made aware of these documents because they shed new light on the schemes of those who want to promote abortion here and abroad," Smith said.
"It is especially important that policy makers know, and more fully understand, the deceptive practices being employed by the abortion lobby," Smith added.
The documents confirm CRR's strategy to develop international pro-abortion laws that can be imposed and enforced throughout the world.
They also validate long-held suspicions that abortion advocates lobby diplomats to include phrases such as "reproductive health" in treaties and other international documents. Later they define such innocuous phrases to include an unfettered right to abortion.
"In their own words, these documents demonstrate how abortion promotion groups are planning to push abortion here and abroad, not by direct argument, but by twisting words and definitions," Smith said.
CRR states that this technique is preferred because, "There is a stealth quality to the work: we are achieving incremental recognition of values without a huge amount of scrutiny from the opposition. These lower profile victories will gradually put us in a strong position to assert a broad consensus around our assertions."
"We have to fight harder, be a little dirtier," one CRR trustee says.
"These documents are important for the public to see," Smith explained, "because they expose the wolf donning sheep's clothing in an attempt to sanitize violence against children. These papers reveal a Trojan Horse of deceit."
