Various pro-life and pro-family leaders hailed the election of the next president of Argentina, Javier Milei, who defeated Sergio Massa, current minister of economy and candidate of the Union for the Homeland party, formerly called Frente de Todos (Everyone’s Front), in Sunday’s runoff election.
Early returns gave Milei a 56% to 44% lead, and Massa conceded.
Several days before the election, the now vice-president-elect of Argentina, Victoria Villarruel, highlighted the fact that she and Milei “are both pro-life” and said that “there has to be a discussion” regarding the abortion law passed by the Argentine Congress in December 2020.
Speaking on the TV program “Solo Una Vuelta Más” (“Just One More Turn”) broadcast on Todo Noticias, Villarruel stressed that she would “like the discussion to take place on a scientific basis and serious arguments and not as ideological as those that colored the promulgation of the law.”
