In the context of the Day of the Child to be Born, and almost a week after the debate began for the decriminalization of abortion in Argentina, various social and religious organizations marched throughout the country "in favor of life."
According to Lavoz, in Córdoba, the mobilization began at 17 in Colón and General Paz, and culminated in the explaza Vélez Sarsfield. About 10,000 people (the organizers speak of 100 thousand) were called to demonstrate against the decriminalization of abortion that began with the intonation of the Argentine National Anthem and was headed by Archbishop Monseñor Ñáñez, among other religious and self-convened people.
As per Lavoz, among the posters that were raised in the demonstration could be read slogans such as: "All life is worth, I love them at 2", "Day of the unborn child, Córdoba in favor of life," "I have 8 weeks to live. My life is in your hands, " Yes to life, not to abortion, " We love all lives. "
As the column progressed, a group chanted songs like: "Catch the penguins, take care of the ecology, legalize abortion, oh, how much hypocrisy."
"We are here to defend the life of the most innocent and defenseless person. We must all be united to fight against those who are behind all this. We know that the business of abortion moves a lot of money, in addition to donations of organs or members of fetuses that have been aborted. We will always defend the unborn child. We must avoid mass extermination or genocide, "said Verónica, as per Lavoz.
According to Lavoz, when the column arrived at the explaza Velez Sarsfield, a document was read in which the 18 Cordovan deputies were asked "to be constituted in Córdoba to listen to the anti-abortion message".
"In Argentina it is a special celebration, not only because our country was the first in Latin America to recognize the need to have this date, but it was also the first in the world to effectively institute it in December 1998," says the March statement.
From the organization, they explained that the demonstration is "is ecumenical and apolitical" and that the mobilization would be replicated in at least 32 cities in the country, as per Lavoz.
