.- Lawmakers in the province of Chaco, Argentina have passed a resolution condemning the violence carried out by a group of abortion supporters at the “25th National Women’s Conference.”

The Oct. 9 – 11 event took place in the Argentinean city of Parana. The National Women's conference is an annual meeting of women who support abortion on demand, gay “marriage,” and birth control.

One of the resolution’s sponsors, Clelia Avila, said, “What happened during the women’s conference in Parana is the result of intolerance, of the inability to dialogue.” She called the result “appalling” since it is “inappropriate to attack those who don’t share your point of view.”

Dr. Roberto Castellano, president of the NGO Pro-Life, said that during the conference, the feminists gathered in Parana and engaged in threats, physical attacks, and the destruction of business and public property. He pointed out that their actions received no coverage in the media.

Castellano said the event cost some $2 million and was focused on promoting abortion, attacking the Church and the military, the natural family based on marriage between a man and a woman, the promotion of homosexuality and birth control.

Pro-life women who attended the event were physically attacked and forced to leave.
