Pro-Life International, Pam Squyres, MoJo Wire
Relegated to the sidelines of international debate for decades, right-wing religious groups are now building coalitions to lobby against 'anti-family' United Nations programs. Pam Squyres of Mother Jones reports on how this could cripple future global policy efforts to further women's and gay rights. While the U.N. has been discussing women's issues and population growth concerns since the 70's, religious conservatives didn't join the conversation until the late 90's, previously considering the international stage irrelevant to their goals. If George W. Bush assumes the presidency, will these conservative efforts get the boost they need? 'This is an emerging dynamic and it may fade,' says Jennifer Butler, associate director of the progressive Presbyterian United Nations Office. 'Or it may grow into a major movement that we have to fight.'
