.- State representative Jorge Enriquez of Buenos Aires denounced comments made last week by Health Minister Gines Gonzalez Garcia, who called the decision by the country’s Supreme Court to grant a woman’s request to have an abortion “good news.” “It is macabre for anyone to rejoice in this action, which saddens first of all the family that made this terrible decision,” he said.  The news of the decision, he continued, is “enormously painful because the loss of a human life is always irreparable.”

Enriquez maintained that while the justices must follow the law, the decision to allow an abortion is never good news.  He said Gonzalez Garcia hopes her enthusiasm will “open the door to unrestricted abortion, which is a central objective of her agenda.”

Enriquez highlighted that despite the decision by the current government, the good news is that “the vast majority of Argentineans defend life from the moment of conception...and will not allow the culture of death to be imposed on them.”  He also noted that the country’s Constitution, Penal and Civil Codes, and the human rights treaties subscribed to by Argentina, protect life from the moment of conception.
