Member states and pro-family organizations hosted a panel discussion on the importance of family stability at UN headquarters this week.

“Policies to strengthen and protect the family are really a matter of life and death for hundreds of millions of people around the world,” said Austin Ruse, the president of the Center for Family and Human Rights, publisher of the Friday Fax, and moderator of the event.

“The family is the most important and sometimes only source of social protection for over seventy percent of the world’s people,” Ruse said.

Andrei Dapkiunas, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus, called on governments to develop policies that promote family values, marriage, fatherhood, and motherhood.

Egypt’s UN Ambassador, Mohamed Edrees, lamented attempts to marginalize the family at the United Nations.

“It is very disappointing to see that there are attempts to withdraw the theme of the family from the UN agenda, or to dilute for the sake of other controversial issues. These controversial issues don’t have any reference in international human rights law,” he said, referring to the LGBT agenda.
