Pro-life medical students in Cuba send message of support to imprisoned pro-life doctor

.- Five medical students from the Institute of Medical Sciences in Havana are marking the Day of Medicine by sending a message of congratulations and gratitude to Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet.

Medical student Javier Gonzalez Rodriguez said “it is a crime to imprison a doctor only because he wishes life and peace for his people and his nation.”

Gonzalez said he was not afraid of government reprisals because “I want to live free, and Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet, to whom we send a message of hope and solidarity on this day, is a good example of what a doctor should be.”

“I am also opposed to abortion, like Dr. Biscet, and I would like to see the regime in Havana once and for all stop destroying the dreams and hopes of millions of Cubans simply because they think and act like human beings,” he said.

Yaritza Gomez, another medical student, said December 3 was a great chance for all health workers to demand their rights be respected and that they not be impeded from freely leaving their country.
