The UN Secretary General called an international coalition that advocates abortion on demand for women and girls a “shining example”, adding that the world would be a better place if more organizations, similar to it, existed, reported C-FAM, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute.
Kofi Annan made these comments as part of his acceptance speech for an award he received from the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) at a gala evening in January.
“I want to pay tribute to the International Women’s Health Coalition for the work it is doing around the globe,” said Annan in his speech. “The IWHC and its partners provide indispensable leadership for the health and rights of girls and women worldwide. If there were more pioneers like you, the world would be a better place…. You are a shining example.”
He concluded by calling the staff of IWHC “wonderful partners of the United Nations family.”
