The Inter-American Court of Human Rights Condones Killing Unborn Children in Latin America



A few days before Christmas, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IAHR Court) issued the worst judgment in its history.

News from Latin America: UN official says failure to prevent spread of AIDS is fault of Catholic Church, PRI director responds

Project Stop Abortion: PRI Launches Major Offensive in Latin America



The recent ruling by the Colombian Constitutional Court, which effectively legalized abortion in that country, signaled to us at PRI that it was time to expand our efforts in Latin America. Until that ruling, solidly Catholic Latin America had been nearly abortion-free. The only exceptions were Cuba and Puerto Rico, and in neither case did it reflect the will of the people. Fidel Castro imposed abortion on his dirt-poor “socialist paradise” (whose low birthrate and …
