United Nations Grants National Abortion Federation NGO Status

NEW YORK, January 14, 2005 ( – "The United Nations Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) recommended 22 new NGOs for consultative status last week, including the US National Abortion Federation (NAF).The new status means that NAF will have a greater voice at the UN: organizations that have consultative status can attend meetings of the Council, circulate statements, speak at meetings and propose items for the Council’s agenda.

The NAF revealed its low level of morality with its 1994 “soap campaign”. At a NAF conference that year, a woman stood up to introduce the "campaign," explaining to the assembled pro-abortion women that "when you sleep with your senators and your congressmen, you take a bar of soap... and when it comes time for him to vote, you mail him the soap from that hotel and you remind him of where his vote needs to be.

Meanwhile, Feminists for Life of America, a national organization trying to secure, through non-violent means, the basic human right to life for all people from conception until natural death, was also granted NGO status.

Germany and Cuba voiced objections to the Feminists for Life inclusion as an NGO, arguing that there should be a “level playing field” in the Committee regarding applications from organizations that dealt with reproductive rights.

Considering the large number of pro-abortion NGOs and the UN’s general strong support for abortion and population control, there is anything but a “level playing field” at the UN when it comes to life issues."
