Anti-Rights Views: FWI Confronting the Myths About Maternal Mortality and Abortion
In this anti-rights discourse publication Family Watch International (FWI) present their anti-choice position.
FWI is a Mormon-led anti-rights organisation based in Gilbert, Arizona, USA. Their key activities include lobbying in international human rights spaces for “the family” and anti-LGBTQ and anti-CSE policies, training civil society and state delegates (for example, ‘The Resource Guide to UN Consensus Language on Family Issues’), information dissemination and knowledge production.
FWI claim to be ‘debunking the myths’ about maternal mortality and abortion, which they say have wrongly influenced international decision-making bodies. They demand that “UN Member States must resist attempts to liberalize abortion laws under the guise of protecting women’s health and instead focus on providing basic health care to women that will enable them to safely deliver their babies.”Download PDF
