Last week the Argentine Senate rejected a bill which had passed in the Argentine House allowing abortion during the first fourteen weeks of pregnancy. Credit where credit is due, on March 17, the Pope issued an open letter to the Argentine people in which he called upon them to defend life. The vote in Argentina was part of a continent wide pro-abortion effort to bring legal abortion to Latin American. In response mass pro-life movements have been forming throughout South America.
