World Congress of Families Petition Against Cultural Imperialism by the Trudeau Government
The “liberal” (left-wing) government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made promoting abortion and other population-control measures in Africa the centerpiece of Canada’s foreign policy.
His government has committed to spending $650 million over the next three years to promote what it euphemistically calls sexual and reproductive health rights in developing countries. This includes funding campaigns to legalize abortion in countries where it’s currently illegal (most of them in Africa).
In June, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told the House of Commons that pushing abortion overseas is “at the core of Canada’s foreign policy” – not fighting poverty and disease, not projects to provide clean water and maternal care, not promoting democracy and human rights but facilitating the deaths of unborn children.
The World Congress of Families is committed body and soul to fighting this cultural imperialism. In the past two years, we’ve done three regional congresses in Africa — one in Nairobi in 2015, another in that city last year, and one in Lagos this year. A fourth is planned for Lilongwe, Malawi, November, November 28-30. REAL Women of Canada (a WCF Partner) is working with us to combat the Trudeau government’s anti-life agenda.

Denmark Joins the Drive for Population Control in Africa
Speaking in London recently, Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Ulla Tornaes, said her government’s support for family-planning in developing countries is intended to “limit migration pressure on Europe.”
The BBC reported that Tornaes “referred specifically to Africa saying that curtailing the continent’s population growth by increasing access to contraception and family planning (abortion) was an important foreign and security policy priority for the Danish government.”
Tornaes: “Part of the solution to reducing migratory pressures in Europe is to reduce the very high population growth in many African countries.” The Danish government is worried about more Africans coming to Europe. The solution, in their mind, is to keep more Africans from being born.
World Congress of Families Antigua Regional Conference (Building Strong Caribbean Families) in St John, Antigua and Barbuda – June 29-30, 2017
This was our 4th Caribbean conference. The first two were in Trinidad and Tobago and the third in Barbados last year— all coordinated by Rebekah Ali-Gouveia, WCFCaribbean Coordinator.
Besides Antigua, there were participants from Trinidad, Barbados, St Lucia, Jamaica and Montserrat.
The conference was opened by Sir Rodney Williams, Governor General of Antigua and Barbuda, who strongly endorsed the conference’s theme. As a sign of the growing influence of WCF, Governor Williams is the highest ranking official to ever address a regional conference.
Other speakers included: Don Feder (WCF Coordinator of Regional Conferences and Coalitions Director), Glenn Stanton (Focus on the Family), Rebekah Ali-Gouveia, Donna Harrison (President of the American Association of Pro-Life OBGYNS), Dr. Martha Shuping (a clinical psychologist with Save One), Neil Joseph (a local anti-pornography activist), Lisa Thompson (National Center on Sexual Exploitation) Sarah Flood Beaubrun (Minister of External Affairs, St. Lucia), Dr. Godfrey St. Bernard (University of the West Indies), Philippa Davis (Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society), Douglas Napier (Alliance Defending Freedom) and Sharon Slater (Family Watch International)
Among the issues discussed were: marriage, demographics, marijuana, abortion, pornography, overcoming same-sex attraction, sexuality education, population control, prostitution and human-trafficking and defending the family at the OAS.
The conference was covered in The Antigua Observer (click here to read the story).
Special thanks to Sean Bird (Antigua Christian Coalition for a Healthy Society) and Rebekah Ali-Gouveia, who were instrumental in organizing the conference.
