ABSTRACT
The article discusses the decrease in transparency and the exclusion of non-governmental organizations (NGO) in United Nations (UN) procedures, negotiations, and documents, which are said to cause worry for Pro-Life/Pro-Family coalitions. The author argues that the documents from these negotiations are but representations of the interest of the few, rather than a consensus among the many. The exclusion of the NGOs, meanwhile, makes delegates less accountable and civil society less influential in the outcome of the documents.
