Mexican actor rallies Colombians for massive March for Life this Saturday

.- Mexican actor Eduardo Verastegui, who starred in the film “Bella” and has become a pro-life activist, is encouraging Colombians to attend a march this Saturday to protest a proposal to open an abortion clinic in the city of Medellin.
 
The actor has recorded a video in Spanish calling on Colombians to take part in the march.

Verastegui invites Colombians to be “the voice of those who have no voice” and to stand up against “the plans to build a Women’s Clinic with public funds where the crime of abortion would be practiced.”
 
“Let us defend those who are most innocent, the smallest, those who cannot defend themselves.  I am speaking of the babies who are in their mothers’ wombs,” he said.
 
“Remember that abortion is not a right, but a tragic failure. It is the cruel and violent death of a human being and also involves irreparable harm to the mother,” he told Colombians.
 
“Colombia believes in children, Colombia supports life and not death,” he added.  “Colombia is alive and will continue to be alive. We cannot remain passive about the possibility of death coming to our countries. Brothers and sisters of Colombia, it is time to stand up and proclaim that all life has dignity, that our children have the right to life and our families are a treasure we must preserve.”
 
The march will start at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday and will wind through the streets of Medellin towards the Park of Lights. Organizers have asked participants to wear white or red shirts.
