The ProMujer pregnancy help center operated by the Moms 40 Coalition for Life Foundation in Bogota discovered April 16 it had been tagged overnight by abortion activists with false accusations such as “here we force women to give birth" and "be careful: forced motherhood."
In response, a group of young mothers who had been served by the center posted pictures of themselves and their babies with the hashtag #NoMeObligaronAParir, or “they didn’t force me to give birth”. In addition, several of the mothers and their children came by to clean up the site.
According to the foundation’s Facebook page, the center was opened in 2017 and is an outgrowth of the 40 Days for Life campaign which was launched in 2015. Moms 40 refers to women who said yes to life due to the prayer vigils, and as of January this year the center has served 250 women.
Pamela Delgado, director of the foundation, told ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language news partner, that the mothers weren’t content with just cleaning off the façade and so they decided to start a campaign to make it clear that "no one forced them to give birth."
