A pro-life advocate in Peru denounced a recent campaign by the feminist group Manuela Ramos, arguing that it does not benefit Peruvian women but seeks to legalize abortion in cases of rape.
The director of the Latin American Office of the Population Research Institute, Carlos Polo, made the comments after learning about the campaign called “Justice for Them.”
The campaign’s website claims it will be posting testimonies from women who have been raped and have been forced to undergo back-alley abortions or continue on with their pregnancies.
Polo noted that abortion supporters “do not call for any compensation or reparations, which would seem logical, for those women who have suffered physical or psychological harm from an abortion.”
They are only using the names of women to support the legalization of abortion, “which in reality considerably affects real women,” he said.
Polo underscored that these kinds of measures aimed at promoting abortion as a right – the procedure is currently illegal in Peru – allow abortion doctors who kill babies and take advantage of women in desperate situations to go unnoticed.
The supposed “defenders of women” not only say nothing about the doctors who perform abortions, they actually work for them, Polo said.
“They attend international conferences and obtain funding. In exchange they get facilities for them and change the laws so they can carry out their filthy business. They don’t say one word about them.”
“This criticism of the members of Manuela Ramos is for all those who care about real women and their unborn children,” Polo said.
