Via the BBC (CLICK HERE) we find this story of a politician standing up for human life at a risk to his career. Describing himself as “a left-wing, humanist, Roman Catholic” Rafael Correa, President of Ecuador announced that, despite pressure form members of his own ruling coalition, he would “never approve the decriminalisation of abortion.”
Ecuador, which protects life from the moment of conception in its constitution, is in the midst of an extensive reform of its penal code during which certain elements in the ruling leftist political bloc are attempting to alter the legal systems position on abortion. Mr. Correa has consistently stood up to these betrayals, at a risk to his political career an to the approbation of Latin American pro-life activists.
This is an example of a politician taking real risks to stand up for the right side. What is your representative doing?
