Correction

Due to an editing error, the article “Opposition mounts against UN genocide conference,” in EIR of May 20, 1994, contained the following inaccurate formulation: “Several of the Roman Catholic institutions which have spoken out against the Cairo agenda, have also gone beyond the traditional, narrower focus on the delimited issues of abortion and contraception.” The sentence should have read: “Several of the Roman Catholic institutions which have spoken out against the Cairo agenda, have not focused on the issue of abortion and contraception alone.”
