Report Blasts Rotary Clubs for Advancing the Culture of Death

WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- "It would be impossible for any person with an intact conscience to turn a blind eye to Rotary's ungodly associations and population control programs. One may offer up any excuse or justification he or she desires, but there is no way that anyone who truly cares about human life, born and preborn, could be associated with Rotary International. No way whatsoever." This was the conclusion reached by Douglas R. Scott, Jr., president of Life Decisions International (LDI), in a recently published report titled, "Rotary's Dance With Death" Population Control Agenda And Ties To Pro-Abortion Groups Eclipse Good Works."

The report, which is printed in the Summer 2007 edition of LDI's Special Reports, begins by outlining Rotary's altruistic beginnings and how it came to embrace the famous "Four-Way Test." Adopted by Rotary International in 1943, The Four-Way Test consists of four questions that business people should apply to everything they "think, say or do":

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build good will and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

The report lauds the organization's desire to eradicate Polio. But this is where the praise ends.

"With one hand Rotary Clubs are helping save the lives of children by inoculating them against polio. With the other hand Rotary Clubs are working with population control agencies to advance the Culture of Death," Scott said. "This is no different than a hospital that commits abortions on one floor and has an advanced prenatal unit on another. It's another example of society's schizophrenia when it comes to how we treat preborn human life."

Scott discusses Rotary's ties to pro-abortion and pro-population control agencies such as the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). He specifically addresses the "excuses" given by Rotary officials for linking with the controversial agencies.

In 2003, Rotary created the "Rotarian Fellowship for Population and Development (RFPD)." Its purpose is to "support Rotary club projects that address population and development issues." RFPD provides grants to Rotary clubs for work on "population" issues.

"Rotary had an admirable start," Scott said. "But one need only apply its own Four-Way Test to see the group has lost its way."
