As sure as the sunrise, legalization of abortion will follow after the passage into law of any Reproductive Health Bill. Uruguay is giving the Philippines a glimpse of the future IF the current RH Bill is passed into law.
Around twenty pro-life organizations are denouncing what they call “anti-democratic and unconstitutional” moves by supporters of a measure that would legalize abortion in Uruguay.
In an August 16 statement read in the Uruguayan Congress after the bill was rejected by the Committee on Health Care, pro-life leaders warned there were numerous bills aimed at legalizing abortion, not just one, and that all of them “aim to force health care centers to perform abortions.”
Since the measure did not gain the approval of the Public Health Committee, abortion supporters pushed for the creation of a “Special Commission” comprised of a pro-abortion majority that approved it “literally in the dark of night.”
Pro-life groups called the move by the Commission “anti-democratic” and “unconstitutional.” They also said, “It does not address the demographic reality of our country, which is characterized by a low birth rate and an ageing population.”
