Expert urges Mexicans to support candidates committed to life

.- The spokeswoman of the Institute for the Formation of Family Values in Mexico, Claudia Simental Flores, called on Mexicans last week to vote for candidates “who see public office as an opportunity for real service to their constituents,” including the protection of life from the moment of conception. In an article published in El Grafico, Flores criticized Mexico City official, Leticia Bonifaz, who said there was a lack of “political will” for the legalization of abortion at the national level.

“There is a ‘lack of political will’ to attack human life, which is an inherent right that every human being possesses? Thank goodness this kind of will to attack defenseless human beings does not exist,” Flores said, noting that 17 Mexican states have enacted legal protections for the unborn.

She also stressed that those in public office are not there to take advantage of their posts and promote laws contrary to human dignity, but rather to work “for the defense of the rights of every human being, including the unborn.”

“How can we trust in those who commit themselves to defending those least protected, but as time goes on - hungry for votes and power - they act against innocent human beings, not even giving them the legitimate right to live?” she asked.

For this reason, she advised Mexicans not to be misled by promises made by many candidates who may not be able to keep them. “Let us focus our attention on those true politicians who see public office as an opportunity for real service to their constituents,” she said.

Flores invited Mexicans to ask themselves if they want a country that is “open to life and to the defense of the family … or a place where death is the language of a culture” that has lost “its dignity as thinking beings.”
