Guatemalan government to possibly veto new law legalizing abortion

.- Just days after Cardinal Rodolfo Quezada of Guatemala City warned of the dangers of a new family planning law that would open the door to legalized abortion, Guatemala’s Vice President, Eduardo Stein, acknowledged problems with the law and said it may be vetoed.

According to media reports, Stein admitted that the Executive branch had no other choice but to veto the law because of “wording problems” that could make it unconstitutional.

Stein said the new law represented a missed opportunity to “raise awareness about responsible parenthood, the right to family planning and the massive need for sex education, because of wording” that would open the door to abortion by not specifying the meaning of such terms as “reproductive health.”
