PRA Report Documents Growing Threat at UN

In early December, PRA is slated to release UNdoing Reproductive Freedom: Christian Right NGOs Target the United Nations written by researcher Pam Chamberlain.

The report documents the growing threat to international policies supporting women's reproductive rights from Christian Right NGOs with consultative status at the United Nations. Their power has grown with the election of an anti-choice president in the United States in 2000 and his appointment of John Bolton as UN Ambassador in 2005.

Concerned Women for America, American Life League and Focus on the Family: these groups have attempted to shift the focus of some UN supported public health programs in developing countries to abstinence from contraception, and limiting access to abortions.
