Congressmen Thwart US Support for UN Abortion Initiative May 23, 2008

In a 22 May C-FAM FridayFax report, Piero A. Tozzi and Susan Yoshihara reported on a bi-partisan effort to maintain legislative honesty against globalist stealth tactics to deceive into American law global abortion support. As reported of Tozzi and Toshihara,

Pro-life congressmen, lead by Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Bart Stupak (D-MI), rescued a congressional resolution supporting reduction of women’s mortality at home and abroad from surreptitiously advancing the pro-abortion agenda advanced at the United Nations. House Resolution 1022, as now drafted, promotes both “maternal health and child survival” without a stealth promotion of abortion.

The language that was removed by Smith and Stupak called for funding of “global initiatives” and the recognition of maternal health as a “human right.” Using such language would have lent U.S. support for a new pro-abortion initiative launched at a London conference last October called “Women Deliver.” At the Women Deliver conference pro-abortion advocates launched the International Initiative on Maternal Mortality and Human Rights that seeks to link the maternal mortality issue with access to abortion while furthering development of “soft law” norms that include abortion as a human right.

Women Deliver conference was the brain-child of the UN Population Fund (UNPF). It should be remembered that UNFP claims it does not support abortion. Like the Congressional resolution, UNFP lies to the public while campaigning for donation but their programs and reports reveal their duplicity. UNFP Executive Director Thoraya Obaid, was the initiative’s primary architect. Another key backer of the initiative was UN Special Rapporteur for Health, Paul Hunt. A global effort to force abortion on all peoples would not be complete without the lobbying and legal coercion of the pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights. The conference was organized and chaired by the world’s top abortion advocated including International Planned Parenthood Federation, Ipas, and “Catholics” for a Free Choice. The United Nations Children’s Fund and World Health Organization also supported the conference.

House Resolution 1022’s primary sponsor, Lois Capps (D-CA), was one of three members of Congress that attended the Women Deliver conference. A number of pro-life members of Congress, unaware of the provenance of the global initiative and health rights language, originally signed onto the draft version of the resolution.

One misstatement that remains uncorrected in the present version is assertion that “an estimated 536,000 women die during pregnancy and childbirth” – a number touted at the Women Deliver conference but unsubstantiated by the UN’s own statisticians.

UN Population Division reports that the numbers they do have do not represent world population. Many nations either do not report death by sex or they do not consistently report deaths by cause, sex, or age.

In a statement preceding passage of the bill, Rep. Smith pointed out that “when women receive proper prenatal care, they are less likely to die in childbirth,” adding that the final form of the resolution “does not endorse – in any way whatsoever – the cruel ideology that pits women against babies by suggesting abortion as a means of combating maternal mortality.”

The UN obvious intends to make abortion-on-demand global law. Of course, organizations like Center for Reproductive Rights and Planned Parenthood, who make billions of dollars from the death of millions of unborn boys and girls, fully support the legal sanctioning of their profitable business.


C-FAM (Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute) is a leading pro-life organization fighting for the unborn, for families, and for human decency at the global level. Right now, a major donor has offered to match donations. If you would like to help the efforts of C-FAM, please visit their website. On the C-FAM website, you can read about the latest news, about their campaigns, research, and reports, and internships, and about how to donate.
