World experts submit amicus briefs to stop legalization of abortion in Colombia

.- World-renowned pro-life expert Mary Ann Glendon, president of the Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Sciences, is among more than 100 experts from around the world who have submitted amicus briefs to the Colombian Constitutional Court to stop the legalization of abortion in that country.


Professor Hoyos submitted three boxes of amicus briefs to the court Feb. 10, presenting each brief separately. Some organizations and individuals put in heroic efforts, preparing their documents in a very short period of time.


The briefs came from pro-life experts and advocates in Australia, Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom. Members of the European Parliament submitted two briefs; one of these was signed by Dr. Kathy Sinnott and 11 members of the European Parliament.


Twenty-one briefs were submitted by pro-life experts and advocates in the United States, including: Dr. Bernard Nathanson; Teresa Stanton Collett, professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law; Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America; Bradley Mattes, senior fellow of Men and Abortion Network, and; Dr. Joseph DeCook, vice-president of the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.


Briefs have been submitted from a number of organizations in Latin American countries as well, namely Human Life International’s Hispanic branch.
The Colombian Constitutional Court is currently considering the case and is expected o return with a decision within several weeks. The court is reportedly not favorable to the pro-life position.
