    position is advantageous for the GOP and that Republican Party members are strongly pro life As Republican pollster Linda DiVall noted having a pro life stance was not an issue that necessarily harmed Republicans in 1998 A number of pro life candidates ran and won and Wisconsin Senate candidate Mark Neumann while he lost made real strides on the abortion issue Boston Globe 11 5 98 Indeed exit polling showed that Neumann beat pro abortion Sen Russ Feingold on the abortion issue by a whopping 82 17 margin of the 20 of voters who cast votes based on the abortion issue In the Wirthlin poll sixty four percent of Republicans indicated a pro life position while only thirty two percent took a position supporting abortion Unlike most abortion advocates claim women are not overwhelmingly pro abortion Some 65 of Republican women supported a pro life position while only 33 took a pro abortion position leaving a gender gap of only one percent On abortion itself the 11 3 98 Wirthlin poll found that 51 supported a pro life position while 44 supported a pro abortion position Contrary to what pro abortion Republicans like Ann Stone and Arlen Specter say there is no overwhelming majority support for abortion on demand The Wirthlin polls also found strong support for pro life measures such as the ban on partial birth abortion and the Child Custody Protection Act Voters supported the partial birth abortion ban 73 19 percent and opposed taking teens out of state for abortions that violate parental involvement statutes by a whopping 85 10 margin These results indicated that the measures have support from a sizable segment of those who consider themselves pro choice Looking ahead to 2000 the Wirthlin poll asked voters what candidates they would support for the 2000

  • "Abortion Is Wrong" says Nobel Peace Prize Winner Maathai Suggests re-instating law making fathers financially responsible for children conceived
    why anybody who has been conceived shouldn t be given the opportunity to be born and to live a happy life The fact that a life like that is terminated is wrong said Maathai When we allow abortion we are punishing the women who must abort their children because their men have run away and we are punishing the children whose life is terminated she continued But it is because we are not willing to put the men where they should be and that is taking up the responsibility I want us to step back a little bit and say Why is this woman and this child threatened Why is this woman threatening to terminate this life What do we need to do as a society What are we not doing right now as a society A part of that answer lies in this House Maathai said pointing at the Kenyan Parliament building While abortion is still illegal in Kenya Maathai suggests going further that the 1960s law making fathers financially responsible for any children they conceive be re instated That law was removed by men in this Parliament she emphasized Now I think we are too lenient on men

  • Donations
    Women s Rights and Equal Opportunity The report asserts that women s sexual and reproductive rights including abortion are fundamental human rights demanding special protection and it Calls upon the governments of the Member States and the Accession Countries to refrain in any case from prosecuting women who have undergone illegal abortions The report also urges EU countries to provide adolescents with sexuality education starting early in life and to ensure access to comprehensive reproductive services including emergency contraception No mention is made of parental knowledge or consent The report calls for the widest possible distribution of emergency contraceptives including their provision over the counter and at affordable prices by claiming that doing so will reduce the European abortion rate However since these pills destroy already created human embryos and therefore cause abortions themselves European pro life and pro family groups like the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children vehemently contest the report s logic The report relies heavily on United Nations conventions and treaties making frequent reference to the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing and to the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development held in Cairo It also seems to vindicate the concerns of pro family legal scholars who have long argued that vague reproductive language in UN documents would eventually be translated into very specific abortion laws For instance according to the report the international legal framework for a Europe wide right to abortion is based upon Recommendation 21 of the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women CEDAW which does not mention abortion by name but instead calls for the availability of family planning services and the regulation of fertility When the structure of the EU was negotiated it was agreed that social issues such as

  • US Attacked for Pro-life Stance at UN Conference in Bangkok - December, 2002
    frustrated that a single country can hold up consensus in reaffirming a fundamental international commitment to women s health However Dewey asserted that such statements spread the lie that the US is trying to pull back or to overturn the ICPD plan of action This is absolutely false Instead in Bangkok the US attempted to align itself with the many serious reservations placed in the original ICPD document by pro life countries that feared that some language in the document could promote abortion The US officially supports some aspects of ICPD including its commitment to the idea that all family planning programs must be voluntary Many critics also argued that the US administration possesses an unfounded fear that phrases such as reproductive health services are euphemisms for abortion UN Population Fund UNFPA Executive Director Thorya Obaid bluntly stated that The phrase reproductive health services is not code for the promotion or support for abortion services But when the US attempted to include such a clarification in the Bangkok document in order to resolve the issue it was defeated And although Sinding asserted that ICPD does not promote abortion he also admitted that It is heartening to learn that 17 countries in this region have reviewed their abortion laws in order to provide safe and legal abortions An observer present at the negotiations in Bangkok told the Friday Fax that the conference officially called the Fifth Asian and Pacific Conference appears to have been orchestrated by UNFPA its chief nongovernmental partners and members of other national delegations in order to embarrass the Bush administration and to call into question its commitment to the well being of women For instance the pro abortion group Catholics for a Free Choice CFFC placed advertisements in newspapers in Europe Asia and the United States showing
