Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute
The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) is a United States-based Christian think tank. It describes itself as "a non-partisan, non-profit research institute dedicated to reestablishing a proper understanding of international law, protecting national sovereignty and the dignity of the human person.". C-Fam was founded in 1997 and promotes the view that "the UN and other international institutions harm a true understanding of international law and in the process undermine the family and other institutions man requires for a just, free and happy life." In particular, it opposes abortion and the alleged use of international human rights law "to advance a radical social agenda". Its current president is Austin Ruse.
In July 2013, C-Fam President Austin Ruse was identified as a key member of Groundswell, a secretive coalition of right wing activists and journalists attempting to make radical political change behind the scenes.
