The Association for the Defense of Life in Valencia has denounced the decision by the government to suspend the funding it is has provided for years to centers that help pregnant women and are managed by the Spanish Federation of Pro-life Associations.
“The assistance has been provided continuously on an annual basis and it has benefited each year more than four thousand pregnant women with economic difficulties,” the Association said.
It stressed that the government’s decision leaves many women on their own who have no other alternative to abortion other than the assistance provided by pro-life centers. The Federation is considering appealing the decision.
“Pro-Life will not cease denouncing the practice of abortion that deprives the right to life of the most unprotect human beings and that condemns women to face situations that jeopardize their well being for life. If what the government is seeking is to silence those who defend the life and dignity of women, it is wrong. We will continue giving everything that we have to save the lives of so many innocents and the health and well being of their mothers,” the association said.
