PRI Saves Baby from “Therapeutic Abortion Protocol” in Peru



Through the grace of God, PRI has saved the life of an unborn child in Peru who was slated to be aborted for so-called “therapeutic” reasons. Doctors in a Peruvian hospital had decided to give a woman with breast cancer an abortion, claiming that the abortion was necessary to save her life. In fact, they were primarily worried that their plans to put the woman on chemotherapy would cause the child to be born with …

Ipas or IPPF?



The Manual Vacuum Aspirator (MVA) is small, lightweight and concealable—perfect for performing illegal abortions in Latin America. Ipas began life in 1973 as a one-trick pony. It was spun off of the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina, Capel Hill, to manufacture, distribute and promote a single deadly device, a manually operated suction abortion device called a Manual Vacuum Aspirator, or MVA for short. But it has battened on foundation grants over …

Why Abortion Does Not Solve Child Rape



The abortion movement has created a new class of victims:  Pregnant pubescent girls who are being used to justify “therapeutic” abortion.   Vol. 12/No. 12 There is no tragedy that the abortion movement does not seek to turn to its own advantage. Consider the case of a young girl in Quintana Roo, Mexico, who was raped by her supposed stepfather and impregnated at the tender age of 10.  After the girl’s mother belatedly notified the …

News from Latin America: New Challenges to Life in Ecuador: Pro-Lifers Face Harassment and a Hostile Constitution



Ecuador is debating a new Constitution. While this provides the international pro-abortion lobby with a good opportunity to eliminate the legal protection of the unborn, it also provides us pro-lifers an opportunity to defend it. As it stands now, the current Constitution of Ecuador says that: “the State shall secure the right to life from the time of conception…”(Art. 49). This made explicit the State’s opposition to abortion by specifically defining life as beginning at …

News from Latin America: Holding the Line in a Continent Under Fire



Why is abortion not legal in Latin America despite the incredible number of pro-abortion attempts to legalize it? An in-depth analysis would surely consider the historic, sociological, religious, and other aspects. But from my daily experience working in the pro-life movement as the PRI Director of the Latin American office, I would say that the real reason abortion is not legal in Latin American is people. Extraordinary persons are doing an extraordinary job holding the …

For the Record…



“Abortion often is illegal in developing countries, and recording accurate abortion data in those countries is impossible, said Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research institute (PRI), ‘Neither Guttmacher nor anyone else knows how many abortions have been performed worldwide in this year or any other year,’ Mosher said in a written statement.” Tom Strode, “Mo. Official OK’s misleading ballot language again, pro-lifers say,” Life Digest, Baptist Press, 19 October 2007, http://www.sbcbaptistpress.org/BPnews.asp?ID=26652 “Steven Mosher, president …

News from Latin America: Rosa’s Case: Lies of a Feminist Network Exposed in Nicaragua



“Rosa” was the name the feminists of the Red de Mujeres Contra la Violencia, or Network of Women Against Violence (WNAV) gave to a 9-year-old Nicaraguan girl, who was raped and became pregnant in the beginning of 2003 in Costa Rica. Accusations laid at the doorstep of the girl’s neighbor are now being challenged by a more in-depth investigation, one that not only clears his name, but points to far more sinister forces at work. …
