Conservatives Step Up Activities Overseas

David Crary

14 January 2006

"The collaboration of right-wing NGOs and the Bush administration far exceeds any collaboration between pro-choice family groups and the Clinton administration," said Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for a Free Choice. "We never had that kind of hand-in-glove relationship."

She said the Bush administration, with limited power to impose conservative social policies at home, has implemented some foreign-aid restrictions demanded by the religious right -- such as the so-called "global gag rule" that denies federal family-planning money to any foreign group that even discusses the possibility of abortions for clients.
