A national law expanding the permission for abortion beyond cases of rape or a risk to the life of the mother has been struck down by a judge who noted Argentina’s constitution specifically recognizes a “right to life.”
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
Judge Alfredo Eugenia Lopez, of the Federal Tribunal No. 4 of Mar del Plata, decided the illegality of the abortion expansion based on a previous national Supreme Court ruling that “life is the first human right which is recognized and guaranteed by the national constitution.”
The Christian Institute noted this week that the law was adopted in December, but now has been suspended until and unless the nation’s Supreme Court reverses its earlier decision.
The ruling was the result of a citizen’s appeal what argued the law violated the nation’s commitment to life.
Lopez pointed out “an imponderable number of unborn children may suffer death from this very moment.”
The nation, with a heavily Catholic population – more than half of its citizens are part of the church, previously organized marches in more than 100 cities, involving more than 3.6 million activists, to promote the slogan “protect them both.”
Politicians who pushed for the abortion expansion have said they plan an appeal.
LifeSiteNews previously reported that ACI Prensa documented that the judge found that his Supreme Court “reaffirmed in subsequent pronouncements the right to the preservation of health – included in the right to life – and has highlighted the urgent obligation of the public authority to guarantee that right with positive actions.”
The judge continued, explaining the high court, “has considered that the right to life is the first right of the human person that is recognized and guaranteed by the National Constitution.”
Former presidential candidate Alejandro Biondini said, “The judicial declaration of the #UnconstitutionalAbortion by Mar del Plata federal judge Alfredo López is a great triumph in favor of our unborn children, but we must work and vote well in legislatures to permanently repeal that genocidal law from Congress.”
The pro-life activist group called CitizenGO Argentina noted the courage of the judge.
“We congratulate the brave judge @JudgeLopezMDP and we will remain firm so that the ruling that defends the LIVES of thousands of Argentines is enforced and the (National Constitution) is respected,” the group said.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
