Brazil’s Ministry of Health finances abortion documentary

.-

Brazil’s Ministry of Health, led by Jose Gomes Temporao, has given some $40,000 for an abortion documentary entitled, “The End of Silence,” which promotes the practice and defends its legalization in Brazil.

According to the newspaper Globo, two thousand copies of the film will be distributed to schools and feminist organizations in February. The documentary shows cases of women who are seeking an abortion and who defend its legalization.

In response, Bishop Augusto Dias Duarte, Auxiliary of Rio de Janeiro and a member of the Brazilian bishops’ Committee on Life and the Family, expressed his disagreement with the film promoted by the Ministry.  “I don’t think it is correct, from an ethical point of view, to finance a film that defends the personal positions of the health minister with public funds,” he said.
