If there is anything we have learned these past two decades, it is that pro-life activists ignore what goes on at the United Nations (UN) at their peril. This message was driven home yet again at the ICPD25 Summit, held in Nairobi from Nov. 12-14. African pro-life activists say they are outraged by the way the Summit was rigged to push through radical anti-life and anti-family language that threatens the lives of unborn babies, the dignity of the family, and their traditional culture.

The Summit marked the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo. After the fact, Human Life International’s affiliates in Africa described the conference as “an utter travesty,” saying the event was “employed solely to promote and support extreme pro-abortion, pro-contraceptive, and LGBTIQ+ agendas.”

That affluent and socially liberal Western countries would use such a gathering to foist their anti-life and anti-family values on the developing world should come as no surprise. After all, it’s precisely what they tried to do at the original International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994.
