Pro-life group denounces priests that support pro-abortion candidate in Brazil

.- The Defense of Life Movement in Brazil has denounced group of priests who have met with leaders of the Worker's Party to support the candidacy of Marta Suplicy, a known abortion rights and gay marriage supporter who is running for mayor of Sao Paolo.

According to the pro-life movement, the group of priests from the Belen region of the Archdiocese of Sao Paolo has drafted a "Letter to Christians," which will be distributed at Masses and "recommends" that Catholics vote for Suplicy in the November elections.

The DLM said recent polls show that 32% of voters reject Suplicy's candidacy, especially because of her support for abortion. It also pointed out that despite the efforts by the government of Lula da Silva to legalize abortion, voter rejection of such a policy continues to grow.  The more science shows that life begins at the moment of conception, "the clearer it is for any person that abortion is the killing of an innocent human being," the organization said.
