    This week the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights charged the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides (WAGGS) with promoting anti-Catholicism. The charges against the Girl Scouts stem from an email message sent by their UN representative promoting a job opening at "Catholics" for a Free Choice (CFFC), a pro-abortion lobbying group that has been repeatedly condemned by the Catholic Bishops. Long time UN activist Leslie Wright represents the Girl Scouts at the UN, which has official UN recognition as a non-governmental organization. At the UN Wright works with a coalition called the NGO Committee on the ...

    New York, NY (LifeNews/CFAM) — In advance of the UN youth conference later this month, the International Planned Parenthood Federation released two new publications on abortion and sexual rights for youth. The new documents are the latest part of the organization’s larger campaign targeted at teenagers and older children. The sexual rights guide “Exclaim!” calls for a cornucopia of sexuality and gender protections and entitlements under the guise of international law. “Governments must respect, protect and fulfill all sexual rights for young people,” the publication states. The guide is designed as a tool to help young people become sex advocates....

    WebToday-- Under the cover of a warm fuzzy, tagged by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as an event to “promote peace, human rights, solidarity, progress and development,” pro-abortion U.N. agencies plan to execute a startling tactic to advance their agenda. This is according to Susan Yoshihara, international relations expert and VP for Research at the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), an organization that has maintained a pro-family presence at the U.N. for more than a decade, and one with an undeniable inside track on U.N. developments. The event is the World Conference on Youth in Mexico, slated...
  • Girl Scout Politics Less Than Sweet

    I've seen more than a few boxes of Do-Si-Dos and Samoas around lately. It's hard to look askance at the Girl Scouts when there's so much sweetness in the air. But there is reason for keeping the Girl Scouts out of the "mom and apple pie" category. For one thing, the organization has a think tank, a nongovernmental organization and a welcome mat out to Planned Parenthood. At a meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women this month, the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides held a session for young people in which the...

    New York City, N.Y., Feb 27, 2010 / 01:17 am (CNA).- Pro-life supporters from around the world will “give a witness to life” on Monday in New York when they protest at the annual U.N. Conference on the Status of Women. The yearly gathering will be attended by delegates who made a strong push for international abortion rights 15 years ago at the 1995 Beijing Conference on Women. “On Monday morning, 6,000 radical feminists will descend on New York City,” Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) told CNA.  “They are also celebrating what they...

    Document gives U.N. committee authority to dictate family policy. Senate Democrats may be on the verge of resurrecting a treaty that could be used to require U.S. compliance with liberal policies, such as a right to abortion and legalization of prostitution.  The treaty -- the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women  (CEDAW)  -- was signed by President Carter in 1980, but was never ratified by the U.S. Senate and has been in limbo ever since.  More than 180 countries have ratified the treaty, which established a United Nations committee to monitor participation in CEDAW ....

    Lancet Calls For Caution In Touting Potential For Embryonic Stem Cells      A prestigious British medical journal calls recent headlines that claim research using embryonic stem cells will lead to cures for an almost unending number of diseases to be "sensationalist" and "hype" even though the journal favors embryo-destructive research. In an editorial in the June 4 edition titled "Stem cell research: hope and hype," The Lancet noted the findings of a recent meeting of researchers in London, also supportive of embryonic stem cell research, who found that, "no safe and effective stem cell therapy will be widely available for...

    Dear Colleague, One of the old chestnuts of the pro-abortion movement has turned rotten. They say laws against abortion result in higher maternal mortality. New statistics direct from the UN indicate they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, it seems pro-life nations actually have lower maternal mortality rates. This information must be used immediately by everyone concerned about this issue but particularly by those in countries where abortion is against the law: Ireland and Poland especially. Spread the word far and wide. Yours sincerely, Austin Ruse President Action Item: Read the report here.UN Data Show Banning Abortion Doesn't Increase...
  • Expert at UN Women's Rights Session Compares Abortion to 'Torture'

    Unusual admissions were made yesterday by a member of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, a UN committee that monitors compliance with the Convention of the same name (CEDAW). The CEDAW Committee is notorious for pressuring countries to liberalize their laws on abortion. However, at yesterday's meeting, Hungary's representative called abortion "bad for women," and said that in the future, abortion will come to be seen the same way that "torture" is currently viewed in the area of human rights. The Committee has convened for its 33rd session to examine the progress reports of six countries including...

    Dear Colleague, The UN is set to hold a major conference on June 2 to explore UN efforts to halt the spread of AIDS. Of course, the only successful strategy is the one that the UN rejects but that has been successful in Uganda; abstinence before marriage, fidelity within marriage. The UN's solution is to toss around condoms and to expand access to abortion. Go figure. Spread the word. Yours sincerely, Austin Ruse President UN AIDS conference may push for more abortionOn June 2, the UN will host a high-level conference to evaluate the progress achieved in combating HIV/AIDS since...

  • The UNFPA is known for sending condoms instead of FOOD to disaster areas.

    UNFPA Elusive About Abortion Aid for Tsunami Victims The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) describes itself as the "largest international public sector supplier of contraceptives, condoms and other reproductive health essentials," and states that such supplies are "critical to protecting reproductive health in emergency situations." Yet in press releases on its tsunami relief activities, UNFPA steers clear of directly stating that it provides contraceptives or abortion aids. UNFPA may be responding to past public criticism after disclosures that it was providing such supplies. In its January 6 press release, the latest and most explicit to date, UNFPA has requested $28 million...

    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...

    Abortion rights activists tried - but failed - to stop a pro-life group from publicizing memos outlining its controversial strategies. The documents are now part of the Congressional Record. The Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) reportedly has threatened legal action against the New York-based Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM). C-FAM announced last Friday that it had obtained copies of internal CRR memos, which revealed CRR's agenda for promoting abortion worldwide. It outlined some points of the documents, and promised to release more in the coming weeks. On the same morning, C-FAM president Austin Ruse said, the institute received...

    (CNSNews.com) - A pro-life group wants the world to know about the strategies of an abortion rights group, including the strategy involving children. The New York-based Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) announced last Friday that it had obtained copies of internal memos generated by the Center for Reproductive Rights. Those memos, which revealed CRR's agenda for promoting abortion worldwide, are now part of the Congressional Record. Arguably one of the most controversial aspects of the strategies outlined in the CRR memos deals with children -- or, in the words of the document, "a project to secure the fundamental...

    Helena, MT (LifeNews.com) -- The Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-abortion law firm, has sent a letter to LifeNews.com threatening legal action against it. The letter complains about a LifeNews.com story regarding a pro-life organization that received internal documents written by the firm detailing its strategy to develop international pro-abortion laws that can be imposed and enforced throughout the world. The Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (CFAM), a pro-life group that lobbies at the United Nations, announced earlier this month that an anonymous source sent it a copy of a 60-page document summarizing the conclusions of strategic planning meetings...

    New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- The Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (CFAM) announced Thursday that it has obtained internal memos from the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) detailing the strategy to develop international pro-abortion laws that can be imposed and enforced throughout the world -- ultimately government financed abortion on demand worldwide. "The memos appear to confirm long-standing fears of some legal scholars that international negotiations on human rights laws are no longer conducted in good faith, and that national sovereignty is jeopardized by such negotiations," wrote Douglas Sylvia, Vice President of CFAM, in the first of a series...
