Catholic University of Argentina: “right to abortion” non-existent

.- In response to proposals that would liberalize abortion laws in Buenos Aires and in other Argentinean provinces, the dean of the School of Law at the Catholic University of Argentina, Gabriel Limodio, warned this week, “The right to cause the death of one’s own children does not exist.”

“The Constitution and the laws of the nation protect the right to life from the moment of conception and no law that establishes the right to abortion exists.  Thus any legislation that puts the life of the innocent unborn at risk is unconstitutional,” Limodio said in a statement.

He noted that the law in Argentina does not allow any provincial government or legislature to pass laws in violation of the country’s Constitution.  Nor can Argentina’s national Congress “alter the content of the National Constitution inasmuch as it protects the human person from the moment of conception,” he added.

“No matter what his state of development or what his psychiatric or physical defects are, the human person cannot be considered ‘a thing or a product’,” Limodio stressed.  “This way of describing the human being is clearly discriminatory and fosters a new form of slavery that allows one determined group of individuals to decide about the lives of others.”
