BRASILIA, October 28, 2002 ( - The newly elected President of Brazil Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, known as “Lula” is a threat to Brazil’s pro-life constitution, says Dr. Talmir Rodriguez, Brazil’s representative on the board of the International Right to Life Federation.  Lula won 61 percent, or 51 million votes, in Sunday’s election.  Lula, a radical labour union leader founded the Workers’ Party (PT), a Trotskyite group that included trade unionists, intellectuals, and followers of Liberation Theology.  Brazilian papers are reporting that shortly after his second marriage, Lula had a daughter by a nurse named Miriam Cordeiro, who ended up speaking out against him in the 1989 presidential campaign. “He offered me money to have an abortion ... He can’t be trusted,” said Cordeiro.  Dr. Rodriguez, a member of the national Brazilian bishops conference committee on the family, told LifeSite that Lula and his party are openly pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage.  The party has a policy to allow abortion on demand up the third month of pregnancy.  See the MSNBC coverage of the election:
