(39th Session)

ADF International is a faith-based legal advocacy organization that protects fundamental freedoms and promotes the inherent dignity of all people before national and international institutions. As well as having ECOSOC consultative status with the United Nations (registered name ‘Alliance Defending Freedom’), ADF International has accreditation with the Organization of American States, the European Commission and Parliament, and is a participant in the FRA Fundamental Rights Platform.

This report explains why Antigua and Barbuda should resist calls to liberalize access to abortion, and instead continue to protect the right to life of all persons, including the unborn. It also calls on Antigua and Barbuda to safeguard parental rights in the implementation of school-based sex education programs.

USCIRF 2020 Annual Report

USCIRF 2020 Annual Report

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is a bipartisan commission that annually reviews the countries in the world that have the worst record on religious freedom. USCIRF uses the information it receives to make recommendations to the U.S. State Department about what countries should be considered “countries of particular concern.” These countries engage in “systematic, ongoing, and egregious” violations of religious freedom. If the State Department agrees with USCIRF, it can then take actions against these countries.
