Paraguayan lawmakers reject anti-life bill criticized by the Church

.- By an overwhelming majority, the Paraguayan House of Representatives rejected a controversial bill last Thursday that would have opened the door to abortion and homosexual unions. The bill was rejected by a vote of 57 to 6, with 3 abstentions, without debate and with only the bill’s sponsor, Carlos Filizzola, speaking in favor.

Pro-life leaders and both Catholic and Evangelical church officials watched the vote closely and praised the rejection of the bill.

According to Father Juan Claudio Sanahuja, director of the “Noticias Globales” news agency, “Today’s results, unthinkable just a few days ago, show once again that when all the social forces unite and exercise pressure on their representatives with a resounding ‘no’ without compromise or consensus in favor an illegitimate lesser evil, it’s possible to block the social reengineering of the culture of death.”
