A pro-life association of university students is appealing to Pope Francis for support as the South Korean government faces a decision on the future of its national abortion law.
The Association of Pro-Life Students in Korea and a delegation of priests and religious met with Archbishop Alfred Xuereb, Apostolic Nuncio to Korea, who promised that their message would be delivered to the pope this week.
During the meeting Aug. 21, Anna Choo Hee-Jin, the president of the association, gave the apostolic nuncio a letter for Pope Francis on behalf of students from six universities in South Korea.
"I'm out on the street with pro-life college students with signs advocating for life. Unfortunately the current Korean government, pressured by the feminist claim of 'right to choose,' is not in favor for protecting the newborn," the 26-year-old wrote in the letter to Pope Francis.
