Honduran lawmakers commit to defending life from moment of conception

.- The foundress of the Pro-Life Committee of Honduras, Gracia de Villeda, has praised lawmakers for who have thrown their support behind an initiative to defend human life from the moment of conception to natural death.

Speaking to CNA, Villeda said a majority of lawmakers signed the declaration on the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  “The vast majority of the 128 lawmakers who make up the Honduran parliament has committed to rejecting any bill that has elements that do not respect life or that facilitate the distribution of the morning after pill,” she said.

She said the initiative would be replicated in other countries in the region, such as Nicaragua, Guatemala and Costa Rica.

“It makes no sense to talk about defending human rights if we do not begin with the right to life, which is the first human right. We think this initiative should be duplicated by other parliaments in other countries in order to create blocs of pro-life legislators,” Villeda said.
