.- “President Tabare Vazquez of Uruguay, in vetoing almost in its entirety the law intended to legalize abortion, has become an example of honesty and consistency amidst pressure from abortion supporters, who support the death of the most defenseless,” said the president of the Pro-Life Federation of Spain, Alicia Latorre.

She praised Vazquez for his honesty and reasonableness and for being “intellectually faithful to the defense of life which he defended as a doctor.”  She also said his position was reasonable because “as science teaches, life begins at the first moment, and to interrupt a life is a crime that at the same time gravely harms society.”

Latorre later pointed out that “except for some aspects of chapter I of the law that are contrary to the natural order and were not vetoed, the Pro-Life Federation celebrates this victory of the right to life, because this intellectual honesty and political consistency must be praised. A person like Tabare Vazquez who defends life amidst a culture that is against it deserves admiration and our most sincere support.”

She said that pro-lifers in Spain hope Uruguayan lawmakers will be “courageous in defending life and seeking ways of helping women that never attack life or human dignity.”
