Abortion in Mexico
“We are an army opposed to abortion,” says president of El Salvador

.- The president of El Salvador, Elias Antonio Saca, said this week, “In El Salvador, we are an army of defenders of our Christian faith, we are an army opposed to abortion,” in commenting on the recent approval of a law that legalizes abortion in Mexico City.

“Those 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,” the president said, adding, “I respect what has happened in Mexico, I am not going to meddle in the internal decisions of the Mexico City congress.”

“Thank God the constitution of our country and our leaders are opposed to abortion,” he went on, although there are some members of the government who “believe in these kinds of  things, in this kind of dangerous modernisms.” 

“All Christians must share the sentiment of the Holy See, whether we are Catholics or Evangelicals,” 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 “terrorism with a human face.” 

He also stressed that abortion is “a 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.”
