Nicaraguan congress to consider legalization of abortion during Penal Code reform

.- The National Assembly of Nicaragua is set to debate a proposal on Thursday that would reform the country’s Penal Code and allow for therapeutic abortion in that country.

The president of the Bishops’ Committee on Family Ministry, Bishop Juan Abelardo, as well as the president of the Nicaraguan Association for Life, Dr. Rafael Jose Cabrera, published a letter to the country’s legislators on March 25 urging that the statute be eliminated from the reform proposals.

The letter also denounced efforts by abortion clinics to secure approval of the new Code, underscoring that the clinics are interested in providing abortions “to any woman for any reason, with the only requirement being a signature of approval from the woman, her spouse or a close relative, and the signatures of three doctors.”

Similarly, the letter called for the preservation of morality and family values in Nicaragua, reminding lawmakers that the nobility of their words and actions must correspond to the responsibility they have as leaders of the country.
