Church in Mexico presents ethical Decalogue for defense of life

.- The Church in Mexico presented this week an “Ethical Decalogue on the importance of respect and defense of life,” that “seeks to foster understanding of the value of human life from its very beginnings.  The announcement was made by the rector of the Old Basilica of Guadalupe, Msgr. Pedro Agustin Rivera Diaz.

Msgr. Rivera Diaz said the Decalogue is “a wide and universal proposal, as human rights are not a question of religion or of particular interests, but rather of universal rights, and therefore this initiative is an invitation to reflect on the issues of the defense and respect of life.”

He also noted that the initiative is an expression of support for the National Commission for Human Rights, which is challenging a new law legalizing abortion in Mexico City.

The rector of the original Basilica of Guadalupe stressed that scientific data clear demonstrates that “human life begins at the very moment in which pregnancy begins as well.”

The Decalogue will be presented on various occasions during the coming weeks, with experts providing information on the scientific aspects of the origins of human life.
