.- Numerous abortion and same-sex marriage supporters in Peru are throwing their support behind Ollanta Humala, the presidential candidate who will face Keiko Fujimori in a runoff election set for June 5.

The Population Research Institute’s Office for Latin America reported that “(j)ust days before the runoff election between Keiko Fujimori and Ollanta Humala to choose the new Peruvian president for 2011-2016, the entire pro-abortion and pro-gay block (of supporters) have been simultaneously posting messages on their Facebook pages against Keiko and in support of Ollanta.”
 
Ollanta’s political party, Gana Peru, includes in its platform support for “the full exercise of the sexual and reproductive rights of women, access to family planning methods, including oral emergency contraceptive ... and the legalization of abortion.” 

It also calls for guaranteeing the “right of all persons to choose their own sexual orientation.”
