Intimidation Campaign Spreads: "As news of the Center for Reproductive Right’s (CRR) top secret memos (PDF) to establish international abortion and “sexual” rights spreads within the public policy community, CRR has stepped up its campaign to silence critics by threatening more groups with lawsuits."

"At the same time, analysis of the documents continues to reveal startling details of both the means and long-term goals of the abortion-advocacy group."

"Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ), who introduced the memos into the Congressional Record, notes that 'One of their strategies is to manipulate international norms to force countries to do what CRR wants.'"

"Smith also describes CRR’s domestic goals, 'CRR has programs to work with major medical groups to oppose parental involvement in abortion decisions and to "debunk the extent of parental rights currently recognized." They have programs on forcing hospitals to do abortions and on forcing taxpayers to use state and federal funds to pay for abortion. They even go so far as to target Pregnancy Resource Centers.'"

"John O’Neil, a pro-life advocate from California, also notes that CRR acknowledges that it intends to undermine laws mandating the reporting of child abuse for what CRR labels 'non-abusive sexual relations,' which appears to mean that CRR intends to fight age of consent laws, the primary goal of groups such as the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)."
