Heresy at the UN

by Austin Ruse: Have you ever heard of the Stockholm Syndrome. It is what happens to victims of kidnapping who come to associate themselves with their kidnappers. Most famously, it happened to Patty Heart back in the 1970s.

It is a thing that happens even to good people when surrounded by great evil.

The other sorry thing that happens is the desire to be on the “inside,” to be accepted, especially by the powers-that-be.

From 1997 to the present, C-Fam has seen this happen with many groups that come to the UN to do pro-life work. They become hungry to be accepted by the powers-that-be. They want to be insiders. They mistakenly believe that this is the way to stop abortion at the UN. They are wrong.

I am proud to say that no one at C-Fam has ever been stricken with that malady. In all the nearly 20 years of our existence, we have consistently rejected insider status and have savored our outsider status.

Being on the outside means always being able to tell the whole unvarnished truth.
  • A few months ago we were told that we could not say anything negative about homosexual parenting, even though we know, the social scientists know, even gays know, that children do best when raised by their own mom and dad and do far worse in any other arrangement, including when raised by two men.
  • We were under great pressure not to release the Family Articles, an expert document agreed to by 164 groups from around the world, because it tells the truth, that gay unions do not have the status of man-woman marriage in international law.
  • We were also under pressure to accept the idea that “reproductive health” does not include abortion when it is abundantly clear that every major and most minor UN bodies say it does and work as if it does.
    We have refused to go along with these erroneous propositions.
C-Fam has never wanted to be on inside at the UN. The inside of the UN is rotten. Our job is to work with delegations who are fighting for their lives, for the lives of unborn child, traditional marriage, and national sovereignty, come what may.

We hold this view whether we are liked by European countries or not. We hold these views whether we are liked by UN bureaucrats or not.

The cost of this position is immense. It means that we are not supported financially by governments. It means we are not supported by wealthy donors. It means we are not supported by rich foundations. Who we are supported by is you and those like you

The issue with the United Nations organization is the influence of Alan Guttmacher, son of Rabbi Adolf Guttmacher and Laura Oppenheimer Guttmacher. Alan Guttmacher was a member of the American Eugenics Society and staff at the Mount Sinai Hospital.
