In a statement the group underscores that the campaign âopenly violates national lawâ which is founded upon the ârecognition of the rights and irreplaceable value of each human life.â.- The Pro-Life Committee of Honduras is denouncing a campaign launched by the Ministry of Health to promote the distribution of the morning after pill despite its abortifacient nature.
The group explains that the âMinistry of Health of Honduras, the Honduran Association for Family Planning and Marie Stopes Honduras open promote the distribution and use of the morning after pill in the country,â adding that âin recent days a campaign has been launched aiming at kids and inviting them to use it.â
The âemergency contraceptionâ kits contain âa small plastic bag with eight pills, three condoms, and two pamphlets that do not include any information other than a brief mention of side effects, such as nausea and hypersensitivity in the breasts, headaches, water retention and dizziness,â warns the Committee.
âIn Honduras,â it continues, âthe law recognizes that life begins at the moment of conception, and therefore it is ironic that the state itself openly violates national legislation which, in this area, is founded upon the recognition of the rights and irreplaceable value of each human life.â
The Committee concluded hoping for a strong public reaction against the acceptance of abortion in Honduras.
