Pro-life groups denounce irregularities in efforts to legalize abortion in Colombia

.- The Foundation Futuro Colombia has denounced certain anomalies in the case being argued before the country’s Constitutional Court to legalize abortion. The group is demanding it be thrown out on the grounds that one of the court’s key reporters, Jaime Araujo, has expressed a pro-abortion view since the start of litigation.

According to Foundation spokesman Ilva Myriam Hoyos, when the Court declared in December it was “inhibited” from changing the country’s laws on the matter, Araujo had said he was in favor of total legalization of abortion.

Since Araujo is tasked with collecting briefs and determining if cases can go before the Court, Hoyos argued that his actions, which included unexpectedly changing the dates for hearings in which the public could express their opinions on the issue, violated due process.
