SALVADORAN SUPREME COURT PROTECTS LIVES OF BOTH MOTHER AND CHILD
HISTORIC DECISION FROM PRO-LIFE LATIN AMERICAN NATION

Statement from Live Action President Lila Rose:

The Supreme Court of El Salvador has made the just and commendable decision in the case of 22-year-old Beatriz and her baby. Hospitals around the world volunteered to abort Beatriz’s disabled child, saying, in effect, “let us kill your baby for you.” El Salvador rebuffed this international bully ring of abortion activists and treated both Beatriz and her pre-born child in the only proper way for a nation that honors human rights: by treating both the mother and the child as equal patients.

El Salvador has shown what true medical compassion looks like, all while keeping in line with medical science and plain common sense. Hundreds of doctors in Ireland, another pro-life country, recently published the Dublin Declaration, which states unequivocally that abortion is never needed to save a woman’s life. These doctors have agreed that we don’t have to pit the mother’s life against the child: we can strive to protect them both. Here in the United States, Dr. Anthony Levatino, a reformed abortionist, testified that over the course of more than 1,200 abortions, he never had to commit a single one to save the mother.

The Beatriz case reinforces once again the humanity, compassion, and good sense that come from a nation respecting the dignity and equality of all human life. El Salvador has established itself as a human rights leader, and I pray that all the world’s nations, including our own, will follow this country’s heroic example.
