Promsex, an organization that promotes the decriminalization of abortion in Peru, lost in court in its attempt to silence ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language news partner, and to hide its ties with Planned Parenthood.
The Second Constitutional Chamber of the Superior Court of Justice of Lima dismissed Sept. 24 the defamation suit filed by Promsex against ACI Prensa, but as is sometimes the case, the ruling was only recently made available.
ACI Prensa revealed in 2015 that Planned Parenthood had allocated more than $3 million to the non-governmental organizations INPPARES, Catholics for the Right to Decide, and Promsex to promote the legalization of abortion in Peru.
Promsex, headed by Susana Chávez, received more than $700,000 from Planned Parenthood for projects that ran between 2013 and 2015.
