.- The president of El Salvador, Elias Antonio Saca, said this week, âIn El Salvador, we are an army of defenders of our Christian faith, we are an army opposed to abortion,â in commenting on the recent approval of a law that legalizes abortion in Mexico City.
âThose of us who love life, those of us who believe in God, those of us who believe in life cannot be in favor of abortion in any form,â the president said, adding, âI respect what has happened in Mexico, I am not going to meddle in the internal decisions of the Mexico City congress.â
âThank God the constitution of our country and our leaders are opposed to abortion,â he went on, although there are some members of the government who âbelieve in these kinds of things, in this kind of dangerous modernisms.â
âAll Christians must share the sentiment of the Holy See, whether we are Catholics or Evangelicals,â the Salvadoran president said in reference to the statement by the Secretary for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Angelo Amato, who called abortion and euthanasia expressions of âterrorism with a human face.â
He also stressed that abortion is âa crime, and the Vatican has gone even further and has called it terrorism, because it is the killing of a baby in the womb of its mother, it is true terrorism.â
