I confess that I don’t understand Pro-choice people. What moves them to defend as a right that a woman aborts her son? Sincerely, the assumptions on which that right is based on are so incredible that it is difficult to refute them. In 1985 in Spain, abortion was legalized in three assumptions: violation of women, risk to the physical health of the mother and the fetus, and risk to the mental health of the mother. That means that abortion stayed offense, but if it was practiced in one of these assumptions, neither the mother nor the person who would help her could be tried. In fact, more than a decriminalization, it was legalization. Some clinics (“abortion centers”) appeared. There and for a price more or less high, reports were issued, usually false, to declare that the pregnancy was very dangerous for the mental health of the mother; and then she could abort. A Danish report on spanish clinics showed that fetuses that even had seven months or more were aborted. For this, it was only necessary to falsify the supposed age of the fetus. Not happy with this situation, and as a result of a research on the clinics of Dr. Morin, where were executed real slaughter, grinding fetuses, and omitting the permissive Spanish legislation; the socialist government of Mr. Zapatero enacted the Organic Law 2/2010 on Sexual and Reproductive Health where abortion becomes a right, and assumptions no longer would be required in the first fourteen weeks. The will of the mother will only be required; the father has nothing to say because the son is only of the mother but if she decides the contrary then the father must be responsible in his fatherhood ¡Curious legislation! I will no take under considerations that law, and especially what has been said in favor and against it. Read the rest of this entry »
Executive committees of gynecology clinics of four Roman universities (Tor Vergata, La Sapienza, Cattolica and Campus Biomedico) gathered in Isla Tiberina (Italy) made a report where reclaimed to legalize the right to medical assistance to the fetuses that survive after an abortion, because “a viable newborn should be treated as any person in danger.” Read the rest of this entry »

“A government can never adopt the right to decide over the life of human beings, especially if they are unborn, as if they were not a person, relegated them to the condition of object to serve with other purposes, even though they were great and noble,” said Giovanni Lajolo.

While our President, Mr. Rodriguez Zapatero, defended in a Geneva forum the abolition of the death penalty throughout the world, the Spanish Senate approved with a minimal majority, the Law on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Voluntary interruption of pregnancy: Aido law or abortion law. While the first effort seems laudable, since no life is in hands of the man, even if its elimination would be protected by the law, or even the life of terrorists or murderers; the second one established the abortion as a “right”. I do not understand as great disparity of criteria: we must not condemn to death to any criminal, no matter how repulsive and cruel have been their crimes, but thousands of innocent children can die without having been born, only by the decision of their mothers. I do not think that it will cause more abortions than we currently have, since the permissiveness in the previous act was so much, that the abortion was practically free, because there was always an unscrupulous doctor that practiced it. That meant a danger to the mental health of the mother, previous payment, of course. The most terrible of the new law is that it establishes the abortion as a right. In view of a right, there is no conscientious objection. Before the abortions were practiced by doctors and nurses in private clinics (abortion centers), now any doctor in the public health may refuse to perform abortions on pain of sanction or trial and sentence. How low we have fallen!

All of them demand to annul laws that legitimize abortion, take measures to promote the right to live and be a mom and comply with the right of parents to give their children the sexual orientation they want according to their own beliefs. Likewise, they also demand to obey the right to conscientious objection of health workers. Read the rest of this entry »
