Doctor urges participation in Peru's pro-life march

.- Dr. Jorge Cordero from Peru's Natural Family Planning Center is encouraging Peruvians to participate in a pro-life march on May 21.

The doctor told CNA that Peruvian citizens must raise their voices against “the diverse attacks on life that have been attempted, such as the legalization of abortion.”

He warned that some minority groups are trying to get abortion approved for health reasons. “They are trying to spread abortion everywhere,” he added.
 
Asked about the pro-life issue in Peru’s upcoming presidential runoff election, Dr. Cordero said the defense of human life “is reaching climax and the threats against life are many.

“Therefore,” he continued, “the importance of this march is that we not be indifferent, but that we part of the solution and strongly and clearly say to all the people who are going to be listening that we are defending life.”

He also noted that “Catholics cannot vote for someone who openly supports abortion.”
 
Dr. Cordero said this year there seems to be more awareness among Peruvians about life issues. “This time it has been the participants of last year’s march who have been e-mailing, calling friends and taking to the streets” to invite people to attend. 

“Everyone is invited to take part in the march,” he concluded.
