Buenos Aires, Argentina, Aug 3, 2021 / 16:01 pm
An organization of Catholic universities in Argentina has issued a declaration demanding that the legal system protect the unborn from the nation’s abortion law, enacted less than a year ago.
The Argentine Network of Catholic and Catholic Oriented Universities reaffirmed their identity "with the culture of life" and demanded that "the legal order protect human beings from conception to natural death."
The network stressed its “commitment to the exercise of fundamental freedoms, working tirelessly with fidelity and trust for the sacred right to life of all human life.”
In their statement, the universities pointed out that the abortion law passed by the National Congress Dec. 30, 2020 is an "offense to the constitutional legal order" and to the "scientific foundations" of the humanity of the unborn child that were refuted during the legislative debate "with only ideological arguments.”
