ROCKFORD, Ill., —A report by the United Nations Development’s Program’s Global Commission on HIV and the Law, funded in part by a grant from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, has a peculiar prescription for combating AIDS. It calls on governments around the world to legalize prostitution, including child prostitution, and drug use.
In conclusion, Jacobs declared: “The United Nations, which started as a firm proponent of family values with its 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights—which pronounces the family ‘the natural and fundamental group unit of society’ and, as such, ‘entitled to protection by society and the State’—has become one of the principle adversaries of the natural family. On the whole, whenever an agency of the United Nations takes a position regarding the family and sex you can be sure common sense and morality contradict it.”

World Congress of Families is the largest international gathering of pro-family leaders, activists, scholars, religious figures, professionals and parliamentarians, cutting across religious and national boundaries. Past Congresses have been held in Prague (1997), Geneva (1999), Mexico City (2004), Warsaw (2007), Amsterdam (2009) and Madrid (2012). World Congress of Families VIII is tentatively scheduled from September 10-12 in Moscow, the Kremlin, in 2014.
Specifically, the World Congress of Families seeks to affirm and defend the natural family by shifting the terms of certain key public debates worldwide:From “The family as an obstacle to development” to the “family as the source of social renewal and progress”; From “overpopulation” to “underpopulation” as the demographic problem facing the 21st century; From “the small family and voluntary childlessness as good” to “the celebration of the large family as a special social gift”; And from religious orthodoxy as a “threat to progress” to “religious orthodoxy as the source of humane values and cultural progress.”
