ADF International (registered name “Alliance Defending Freedom”) is a global alliance-building legal organization that advocates on behalf of religious freedom, life, and marriage and the family in front of national and international institutions. As well as having ECOSOC consultative status with the United Nations, ADF International has accreditation with the European Commission and Parliament, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and the Organization of American States, and is a participant in the FRA Fundamental Rights Platform.

This report explains that there is no “right to abortion” in international law and recommends that Cyprus respects the freedom of conscience of medical personnel and institutions. It also calls on the authorities of the occupied part of Cyprus to protect religious sites from demolition and to respect the cultural rights and freedom of religion of their inhabitants, as well as to bring the perpetrators of religious vandalism before the competent courts, so that justice is carried out.
