UNITED NATIONS, Jan 21 (LifesiteNews) – The campaign launched by the radical pro-abortion group Catholics for a Free Choice to oust the Vatican from the United Nations has gained the support of 400 organizations, according to a report from the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-fam). C-fam attributes the campaign’s success to “extensive international media coverage, a sophisticated web-site, and advertising in the New York Times.” The groups are now   calling for the UN to downgrade the status of the Vatican from Permanent Observer to NGO (non-  governmental organization).

C-fam reports that the initiative called “See Change” (www.seechange.org) began with 70 organizations, including International Planned Parenthood Federation, one of the most powerful UN NGOs and the largest abortion provider in the world. The coalition has grown to include three major strands: pro-abortion groups, those in favor of population control, and groups hostile to religion. Participants include the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy, Equality Now, Marie Stopes International, the National Abortion Federation, the Feminist Majority, the Sierra Club, Population Concern, Center for Research on Population and Security, the American Humanist Association, and Atheists United.
