President’s Page: The International Abortion Movement’s Stealth



In talking recently with the director of our Latin American office, Carlos Polo, I have grown increasingly worried about the gains that the abortion movement is making throughout Latin America.

Instead of seeking to overturn existing laws against abortion — nearly impossible in these Catholic countries — they are seeking to do an end run around existing laws by promoting chemical abortions.

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.
