Brasilia, Brazil, May 22, 2008 / 05:51 am
Attendees at Brazil’s first national “Youth Conference” in the capital city of Brasilia has issued a declaration containing rulings favoring the legalization of abortion and the creation of an educational system free of “homophobia.”
Preliminary materials given to the 2,280 attendees at the April meeting were published by the government and bore the name of President Luiz Lula, LifeSiteNews reports.
One publication claimed that 70 thousand women die every year because of complications from badly-performed abortions. The publication also said that women never die of legal abortions.
Official U.S. statistics report about 0.8 deaths per 100,000 abortions, though pro-life organizations argue that such deaths are under-reported.
