It's no wonder the anti-choice, anti-feminist and homophobic World Congress of Families will be held in Warsaw this week; since joining the European Union, Poland has enacted discriminatory policies towards women and gays.
The unnatural need not apply: the World Congress of Families comes together to defend the "natural family" from big bad "feminists, socialists, and big business interests"—oh my!
"The Natural Family—Springtime for Europe and the World" is the theme for this year's World Congress of Families, May 11-13. The usual suspects of the right-wing movement are involved, coming together to oppose sexual and reproductive rights and health around the world.
The European Parliament is asking U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Ellen Sauerbrey to reconsider attending the World Congress of Families next month because speakers' views are out of step with the European Charter of Fundamental Rights.
