.- Mexican actor and producer Eduardo Verastegui has teamed up with the pro-life website in Spain “DerechoaVivir.org” (RighttoLife.org) in order to battle against a plan to overhaul the nation’s abortion laws.  The actor appears in a video on the website inviting Spaniards to join in rejecting the plan.

“As 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,” he says in the video.

Verastegui also called on Spaniards to join in the campaign to oppose the reform of the country’s abortion law.

The actor’s recent pro-life film “Bella” was also mentioned.

“Thanks to you and to thousands of moviegoers—whose hearts have been touched by this film—Bella 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,” he said.

“Up to now Bella has saved more than 25 babies who were going to be aborted,” he continued.  “These 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,” the actor stated.

DerechoaVivir.org was created from the civil rights watch dog site HazteOir.org in response to Minister of Equality Bibiana Aido’s announcement that a proposal to liberalize Spain’s abortion restrictions is being made.
