The Bishops’ Conference of Guatemala is organizing a conference entitled “Life and Dignity of the Human Person,” which will be held April 3-5 and will include testimonies from women who have undergone abortions and have suffered from post-abortion stress syndrome.
The conference will take place at the Archdiocese of Guatemala City’s seminary and will begin with a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Pablo Vizcaino Prado, president of the Bishops’ Conference.
Among the topics to be addressed at the conference are in vitro fertilization, stem cells, abortion, contraception, sexuality and human dignity.
“There will also be testimonies from women who have had abortions and have repented, who went through the terrible post-abortion stress syndrome and who today are important pro-life leaders,” the Fides news agency reported.
Speakers at the event will include Father Thomas Euteneur and Adolfo Castaneda of Human Life International, and Dr. Alejandro Leal, president of the Association for the Defense of Life in Costa Rica.
The conference will conclude with a march led young people and a concert by pro-life Catholic artists.
