Talís Romero, a pro-life leader in Puerto Rico, has launched a campaign in support of a bill on the island which seeks to limit abortion to the first 22 weeks of pregnancy.
Romero’s campaign, “Rescuing Identity,” along with the organization “Pro-life Puerto Rico”, is urging pro-lifers and the general public to send an e-mail to email@example.com in support of Bill 693, "Law for the protection of the conceived child in its gestational stage of viability.”
“As pro-lifers we recognize that life begins from conception, so we know that this bill is not ideal. However, it’s the first step towards the regulation of abortion on the island, and that means a lot,” Romero explained.
The principal author of the bill is Senator Joanne Rodríguez Veve, chairwoman of the Committee on Life and Family Affairs of the Puerto Rican Senate.
