Pro-life groups in Puerto Rico mount campaign against judicial nomination

.- The Pro-Life Coalition of Puerto Rico has launched a campaign to urge Senators to block confirmation of Anabelle Rodriguez, a militant, ultra-feminist who has been nominated to the Puerto Rican Supreme Court.

Rodriguez was nominated by Puerto Rico Governor Sila Maria Calderon, who recently blocked a law that protected conscientious objection in the workplace—including in cases of abortion—which was passed by the legislature but is now under review for amendment.

The Coalition is calling for “letters to be sent to Senators urging them to insist that the governor sign the conscientious objection clause and to not allow Anabelle Rodriguez be the one to make decisions in the future that would adversely affect the families of Puerto Rico, because she does not represent the traditional Christian family.”

The pro-life group also explained that “a total of 32 people requested time to speak during the confirmation hearings, with only four minutes per speaker.  The hearings lasted just two days—July 30 and 31—and various individuals were not given time to speak.”
