It is a sorrowful state of affairs but even pro-life countries have backed
away from protecting the unborn child at the UN. I will tell you why in a
minute. I will not name names because we do not want to embarrass our friends
who are under terrible pressure. But if you have seen what I have seen, you
The anti-life forces at the UN are many and rich and powerful. They include:
• almost the entire UN bureaucracy
• almost the entire European Union
• large sections of the US Department of State
• huge UN agencies like the UN Population Fund and UNICEF
• fabulously wealthy foundations that spend billions promoting abortion
like Rockefeller, Ford, Hewlett, Packard, and Gates
Do you get the picture? The fact that we have kept them from making abortion
a universally recognized human right is a miracle. And can be chalked up to
a few small countries and a handful of brave non-governmental organizations.
But we are losing ground, friends. The small countries that have come to
the aid of the unborn are under wicked pressure to conform to the anti-life
They are threatened with losing millions and billions in financial aid from
UN agencies and the development agencies of the European Union.
They are under pressure from rich foundations who hire lawyers to sue them
in international courts and in their own domestic courts.
They are under pressure by the New York Times and the London Times and the
international chattering classes who mock them and hold them up to ridicule.
There are some in the UN community who just want this issue to go away.
They would rather work on popular issues like poverty reduction and conflict
resolution. These are the popular issues that make you a lot of friends and
praise from the New York Times.
They would prefer that we and the unborn would just go away. We won't. Ever.
What all this means though is that C-FAM, the Friday Fax and our excellent
coalition partners have to work doubly and triply hard to defend the unborn
and the family from these rapacious radicals and from the complacency of governmental
delegations who have surrendered the fight.
But it takes cold hard cash to do it.
At the center of this fight is the Friday Fax and you are needed more than
even to keep this it going.
The Friday Fax has broken more stories about the anti-life and anti-family
machinations of UN radicals than any publication in the world. Period.
The Friday Fax is read by 100,000 people all over the world; in the US State
Department, in the UN Secretariat (a mere hundred yards from where I type
this message), in the heart of the Vatican, in the foreign ministries of dozens
of countries friend and foe alike.
The Friday Fax is expensive. It costs us upwards of $100,000 to put it out.
This includes research, writing, printing, postage, rent, salaries, everything.
That sounds like a lot and it is, but it is next to nothing compared to the
fight we are in and to those for whom we fight, God's precious unborn.

Friend, we need you. At a time when we are expanding, we need your help
now more than ever. You might have noticed we have gone to two stories a week.
This is a response to the increased pressure from the radicals. At a time
we must expand it is also a time that we need you the most.
Please dig down deep and give as much as you can. Go HERE

PS Please know that we have many friends in the UN Secretariat and in the
various UN delegations but they are small in number and surrounded and they,
too, need the Friday Fax. Give to help them!
PPS C-FAM and the Friday Fax are not supported by big foundations. We are
not supported by government grants. We do not a group of wealthy individuals
taking care of us. We are supported almost exclusively by donors just like
