.- Pro-family groups have collected more than 30,000 letters from children asking the Constitutional Court of Colombia not to legalize abortion in the country. Leaders said they planned to send the letters to high court justices on March 30.

Members of prominent family associations recalled that the Colombian constitution “defends the life of every human being from the moment of conception.”  They said the project was an expression of the right of parents to “educate, train and represent our children in the defense of human life.”

“Children have the right to express themselves and to be heard,” they said, and “parents have the right and obligation” to support children in their development by showing them love and understanding and imparting values to them, “especially love for life.”  “Nobody can deny us that right,” they added.   

Common themes in the letters included, “I think that if more babies are not born, there will be no more people,” and, “I think that if my mommy would have aborted me, I would not be here and I would not be able to enjoy my friends, nature, and so many beautiful things in life.”
