FAFCE (Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe )
FAFCE advocates conservative views on family and sexuality at European level. It strongly opposes SRHR and the rights of LGBTI people (considering being homosexuals a "lifestyle" and granting them equal rights: "a categorization of fundamental rights according to one’s sexual inclinations.") (1).
Antoine Renard – President
Anna Maria Hildingsson – Secretary-General.
Links with other organisations: FAFCE has the same location/address as COMECE. FAFCE cosigned a letter protesting the "Directive implementing the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation" (COM(2008)(426) with likeminded organisations such as European Dignity Watch, Hazte Oir or La Manif Pour Tous. Some of its member organisations (the Association of Catholic Families Vladimir Ghika in Romania and the Polish Federation of Life Protection Movements) signed a letter of support for the Russian government concerning the anti-gay propaganda law (2).
