.- Mexican actor and producer Eduardo Verastegui has teamed up with the pro-life website in Spain âDerechoaVivir.orgâ (RighttoLife.org) in order to battle against a plan to overhaul the nationâs abortion laws. The actor appears in a video on the website inviting Spaniards to join in rejecting the plan.
âAs you know, I have stepped out on the front lines because I want to do everything I can to defend the lives of the most defenseless human beings, the unborn; because I want to support women with unexpected pregnancies; because I want to help end the silent holocaust of the 21st century, which is abortion,â he says in the video.
Verastegui also called on Spaniards to join in the campaign to oppose the reform of the countryâs abortion law.
The actorâs recent pro-life film âBellaâ was also mentioned.
âThanks to you and to thousands of moviegoersâwhose hearts have been touched by this filmâBella has taken in over $1.2 million three weeks in 100 theaters across Spain. We hope that many people can still benefit from its message and that it will remain in theaters for many more weeks,â he said.
âUp to now Bella has saved more than 25 babies who were going to be aborted,â he continued. âThese are the cases we have found out about, but I think there must be thousands of lives that have been saved by this film. Help us make Bella save more lives,â the actor stated.
DerechoaVivir.org was created from the civil rights watch dog site HazteOir.org in response to Minister of Equality Bibiana Aidoâs announcement that a proposal to liberalize Spainâs abortion restrictions is being made.
