.- An investigation by the group Pro-Life in Argentina has revealed that the Catholic Church and the unborn are the two groups that are the most discriminated against in that country.

In the case of the Church, the report cites various cases, such as the attacks against the Cathedral of Buenos Aires, vandalism at the Cathedral of Corrientes, church burnings in Misiones, the removal of the images of Our Lady from courtrooms, the attack on a church in Santa Fe, and the constant ridicule of the Church in media, which is subject to government oversight.

With regard to the unborn, the report focuses on the deaths of babies authorized by provincial courts in Mendoza and Buenos Aires and requested by the grandmothers, who said their pregnant daughters were battling handicaps and were unable to carry the children to term.

Lastly, the report by Pro-Life warns that the government agency tasked with investigating cases of discrimination has done nothing to help in either case and that it is unaware if any effort has been made to stop discrimination on the bases of religious hatred or abortion fanaticism.
