By Guiliana Caccia | The tragedy that Colombia is experiencing with the decriminalization of abortion during the first 24 weeks of pregnancy (although, in reality, it is until the 9th month), through a ruling by the Constitutional Court, is not the consequence of a day’s work. These are years in which the promoters of the abortion agenda, part of the gender agenda, have been taking steps, one by one.
And they are advancing, first, with what they call “abortion in case of rape” to later achieve free abortion and infanticide. There are countries where, for example, killing a newborn baby is called “partial birth abortion”.
In partial birth abortion, the doctor manipulates the baby so that first its legs come out of the birth canal, but before the doctor takes the baby’s head out, kills it. But understanding abortion and its “tricks”, how they sell benefits full of mistaken beliefs, is a very complex issue.
It is important to understand well the intricacies of the laws where, for example, they say that you can abort in case of rape up to nine months without prior complaint. And they don’t call it free abortion but “abortion for rape.”
In addition, in case of rape girls over the age of 14 can have abortions without parental permission, and under 14 with at least the permission of a parent or a judge. Without prior complaint against the aggressor and grossly violating parental authority.
Of course, if you do not require a prior complaint against the aggressor, the same father who may be the aggressor takes the girl to have an abortion without the mother knowing. Or the mother takes the girl to have an abortion, covering up the aggressor, since they do not ask for the complaint. An affidavit is enough.
The subject is complex. It is important to understand the political management of this abortion agenda and what stage it is in Peru and in other countries where it has not yet been set free.
For now, I join the pain of the Colombians who witnessed how the most horrendous crime of our species was crowned as legal: the murder of the most innocent human being with the greatest potential.
At this point, the path back to civilization will be very arduous and will bring with it many more victims than any war in the history of mankind. If today a baby can be killed legally, tomorrow a sick or disabled person will be swept aside without any problems.
Dignity and respect for life as an absolute good are being diluted at the mercy of a disastrous and absurd ideology. The good thing, within all this tragedy, is that ideologies always fall. And the truth always wins. And this will not be the exception.
