Colombians using Facebook to marshal opposition to abortion clinic
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- As of last Friday some 3,000 users have joined a Facebook group opposing the planned opening of an abortion clinic in the Colombian city of Medellin.  The group says its goal is to bring together the greatest number of users possible to make city officials aware that the majority of the city’s residents are opposed to the plan.
 
The leaders of the group urge Colombians to “save the lives of the innocent” and to help do so by visiting a website, where they can fill out a questionnaire and send the link to as many friends as possible. “Let’s spread this page all over the internet so that thousands of emails will be sent to the Medellin city hall in protest of the abortion clinic that they are thinking about opening in Medellin with public funds, that is, with our money,” they said.
 
“$8,000 of our money is going to be invested in this,” they continued.  “We cannot agree that Medellin is turned into Nazi concentration camp where innocents are killed.”
