.- The Association of Catholic Doctors and the Consortium of Catholic Lawyers are demanding that the Argentinean congress and officials in Buenos Aires put an end to the recent attacks on human life.

The assaults on life have taken the form of “simple ministerial resolutions” and a proposed law on “non-punishable abortions” approved by the Committee for Public Health of the House of Representatives.

“In recent weeks aggressions against human life have increased,” the groups said in a statement, referring to the resolution by the Ministry of Health of the Buenos Aires province that allows for a more liberal use of abortion than just life of the mother, or rape or incest.

Authorities want abortion to be legal for reasons of the health of the mother as well, despite the fact that human life is protected by the Argentinean constitution, which was recently reconfirmed by the country’s Supreme Court.

The groups also denounced efforts to legalize the “morning-after pill” and to threaten the employment of doctors who refuse to practice certain kinds of abortions.  They also expressed rejection of a proposed national law on “non-punishable abortions” that would force hospitals and other public health care institutions to provide abortions free-of-charge to teenagers as young as fourteen, without the consent of their parents.
