.- The Archbishop Fernando Sáenz Lacalle of San Salvador, El Salvador, is calling on Salvadorans to cast their votes in the coming March 2004 elections, giving special attention to the issue of respect for life. 

Archbishop Sáenz said Salvadorans should elect a successor to Francisco Flores “who has firm dedication to the respect for human life, with no exceptions.” 

Likewise he suggested the platforms of the different political parties be evaluated for “the treatment they give to the family, upon which the well-being of society depends,” and to human rights, “beginning with the right to work, upon which everything else depends.” 

The Archbishop indicated the presidential candidates should inform the public of their proposals in the areas of health and education, which “are fundamental and should be guaranteed throughout the country.” 

“Obviously these are the most important measures with which to judge the platforms of the political parties.  Each of us can have his or her preferences, but with our vote we can all defend a more just society if we take into account these most fundamental issues,” he said.
