Pro-life congress in Colombia calls on politicians to defend life and family


Participants of the 11th International Congress for the Defense of Life taking place in Medellin, Colombia, issued a statement on Wednesday, underscoring the essential need to defend the right to life, marriage and the family, especially on the part of politicians.


In their statement participants affirmed their clear position regarding the dignity of life from conception to natural death, as well as the defense of marriage as an indissoluble union between one man and one woman.


They also called on politicians to “eliminate all abortion under any form; to pass laws that guarantee the stability of the marriage bond; to respect the right of parental authority; to promote and finance programs that foster chastity before marriage and fidelity afterwards; and to respect the fundamental right of conscientious objection.”


Participants pledged to see that these fundamental rights are observed, to create organizations that defend them, to present new legal efforts to promote life, to increase the number of assistance centers for women and to support families in the raising of children and caring for the elderly.
