Spanish bishops prepare to launch pro-life ad campaign

.- The secretary general of the Spanish Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Juan Antonio Martinez Camino, said the bishops’ ad campaign “Protect My Life!,” should remind all Spaniards that “it is necessary to protect life in all of its diversity,” especially the unborn, “who have no voice, but do have a right to life.”

Speaking to Europa Press, Bishop Martinez discussed the ad campaign, which coincides with the Day of the Unborn Child on March 25. “It is necessary to protect life in all of its diversity, but it is ironic that our laws at this time provide less protection to an unborn human—and if some proposals are approved, even less,” than to animals, he said. 

“This is not reasonable and what we want to do with this campaign is to make people think, and ultimately, to look out for the good of all, beginning with those who are weakest. This campaign gives voice to those who have none but who do have the right to life,” the bishop added.

He praised the growing sensitivity to the need to protect the embryos of different animal species and plants that are in extinction, and that this should lead to greater reflection on “the need to protect unborn human beings not less but more.”

“There is still time. There is even still even time to take the better path of protecting the unborn human being, as is necessary and proper to such a fundamental right as the right to life,” the bishop said.
