.- Spanish expert David del Fresno y Torrecillas has presented to Catholic News Agency his analysis of the Dutch organization Women on Waves, which docked its “Ship of Death” in Valencia several days ago in order to pick up women and take them into international waters to administer abortions.

Del Fresno warned that Women on Waves presents itself as “a non-profit organization that is purely philanthropic and devoted to promoting the legalization of abortion in those countries where it has not been legalized—or is decriminalized in certain cases—with the sole purpose of protecting the health of women.”

However, he said, “behind the pretty name and smooth euphemisms and hidden from Spanish public opinion is the true face of a pro-abortion Dutch organization strongly supported by international entities such as Hivos, a Dutch governmental organization that supports abortion and gender ideology.”

“Hivos lends support to more than 800 local non-governmental organizations in countries in Africa, Latin America and southeast Europe through funding, education, counseling and political support,” Del Fresno explained.

“The funding for Hivos comes mainly from international organizations such as the European Union, the Ford Foundation, and governmental organizations such as the Dutch National Lottery,” he said.

Del Fresno pointed out that “in its strategy for promoting abortion, Women on Waves has not hidden its hostility for the Catholic Church and has manifestly expressed it in numerous documents.”
