UN Shifts and Extols Family – But Some Want it Redefined

After decades resisting even mentioning the word, governments and advocates extolled the “family” at two special sessions at the UN last week.

Some at the UN portray the family […]

Pope Francis’ Warning to Europe Lost on Lesbian Politician

Pope Francis starkly warned European leaders last month they have lost trust by enacting policies that are “insensitive” and “harmful,” giving Europe the image of a “grandmother, no longer fertile” and breeding “certain rather selfish lifestyles.” They must guard against misusing the concept of human rights, he stated. One European Parliamentarian called it “a timely […]

Western pressure on African countries to liberalize policies on homosexuality has had a boomerang effect, uniting Africans against it and resulting in what some see as a new non-aligned movement of countries.

Reporters called one program “x-rated.” Another was dubbed “kindergarten sex ed.” A World Health Organization version led to a spectacular defeat in the European Parliament.

Kenyans Defeat Western Effort to Expand Abortion

Rebecca Oas, Ph.D also contributed to this article.

A recent statement by a US Ambassador demonstrates the wide gulf that exists at the UN on the question of abortion.

Croatia Upholds Marriage, Despite Government Threats

by

Croatians cast their ballots last Sunday and the result was swift and clear: 66% voted to add marriage is a “union between a man and a woman” in Croatia’s constitution.

The Defusing of Brazil’s Sexual Rights Activists

by

Inevitable. So we are told. Abortion and sexual rights (like same-sex marriage) will become universally accepted, so opponents might as well surrender. Not so fast. Take a look at what is happening in Brazil. Brazil presented itself as a world leader on sexual rights in 2003 when it introduced a UN resolution on sexual orientation […]

When RU-486, the abortion pill, was approved in the U.S. — after a scandalous campaign of political arm-twisting, media-pressure, and fudging of trial data by abortionists — it came with strict regulations. Now the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether states can require abortionists to follow those safety measures. A fascinating history of the multi-year […]

Will UN Disability Treaty Burden Abortion Clinics?

by

They didn’t see that coming. Planned Parenthood’s support of the UN Disability treaty has put the abortion group in an awkward position. In the abortion group’s zeal to support the treaty because it endorses the right of persons with disabilities to access “reproductive health care,” it neglects to notice that the same treaty would require […]
