May 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Austin Ruse is the President of the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam), a non-partisan, non-profit organization founded to “monitor and affect the social policy debate at the United Nations and other international institutions.”

With over 20 years at C-Fam, Ruse is the leading expert on pro-life and pro-family issues at the United Nations. He’s appeared on numerous news programs on CNN, CBS, MSNBC, and Fox News discussing the United Nations and exactly what goes on there. Ruse also founded the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. He has served on various boards including Catholic Action for Faith and Family and the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life. He’s published a number of books including Fake Science: Exposing the Left’s Skewed Statistics, Fuzzy Facts, and Dodgy Data.

Really, nobody knows what’s going on at the U.N. in regards to abortion and family issues like Austin Ruse. Jonathon Van Maren had the opportunity to chat with him for today’s episode of The Van Maren Show. (Listen below)


Van Maren starts the conversation by asking about how Ruse got involved in the pro-life movement many years ago. The conversation moves into what exactly C-Fam does within the United Nations when policies are drafted. “You know, you get the document, you read the document. You identify bad language; you talk to delegations to try to get bad language out. You try to get good language in… And that’s pretty much what we do.”

Ruse also discusses the major differences between the U.S. presidential administrations that he’s dealt with during his time with C-Fam. He compares the Bush Administration to the Trump Administration, mentioning that the Trump Administration truly is the most pro-life administration in history. Ruse also discusses the damaging impact the Obama Administration had on pro-life and pro-family issues within the U.N during the eight years Obama was in office.

If you are interested in this topic, C-Fam puts out Friday Fax, which is the only weekly source for what’s going on at U.N. headquarters on life and family matters.

The Van Maren Show is hosted on numerous platforms, including SpotifySoundCloudYouTubeiTunes and Google Play.
