Latin America buckling under anti-life, anti-family imperialism of Obama administration

MEXICO CITY, June 25, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - As LifeSiteNews.com's Latin America Correspondent, I have the pleasure of partaking in the culture and daily life of one of the world's great pro-life civilizations -- and the sadness of watching it crumble under the ruthless onslaught of de-population forces from the northern hemisphere.

The Obama administration is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to propagandize the peoples of impoverished regions and to bribe their governments to impose the abortion industry on the weakest and most vulnerable countries in the world. It is joined in this by many European states, as well as multi-billion-dollar foundations established for the purpose of world de-population programs.

Obama's State Department is also aggressively undermining the sexual morality of young people and degrading the natural family. Governments that refuse to cave into the homosexual agenda and partake in the destruction of their precious family cultures are blackmailed by loss of development aid.

Despite a courageous response on the part of pro-life and pro-family groups to this terrible onslaught, Latin America is beginning to buckle. The signs are everywhere.

In 2007, after many years of resistance by Mexicans, the international abortion lobby achieved its dream, with the legalization of the killing of the unborn in the nation's capital, followed by a ruling by the Supreme Court that such legislation was "constitutional." To date, more than 70,000 unborn children have been killed in the city's public hospitals alone, mostly at government expense.

Recently, Uruguay also legalized the killing of the unborn during the first trimester, and although a referendum may be held soon in an attempt to overturn the law, the propaganda efforts of the abortion lobby have influenced the population strongly in favor of abortion.

International pressure has pushed the Brazilian and Mexican court systems to begin forcing homosexual "marriage" on their countries. Both Uruguay and Argentina's national legislatures have approved such unions. "Non-discrimination" laws and constitutional amendments have also ensured that homosexuals can insinuate their sexual immorality and removal of conscience and religious freedoms into virtually every aspect of national life.

LifeSiteNews is present in Latin America so you can be informed about such developments, but documenting the destruction is far less than adequate. We need to do much more to help. 

We want to fight back against the tide of massively-financed propaganda with the most devastating weapon possible: the truth, brought to Spanish-speakers in their own language, through professional quality, informative investigative reporting and analysis that we take for granted in English.

We are pleased to announce that, due to the generosity of a Mexican donor who understands the importance of LifeSiteNews.com's work, we have been able to at least restart our minimal LifeSiteNews Spanish-language service which for now is published under the name of Notifam. This service is also intended to reach the large number of Latin Americans that now reside in the United States.

However, our resources are still extremely limited for this project and we are currently only able to reach a tiny fraction of the people we reach with LifeSiteNews.com. We need your help to greatly expand our efforts to bring our fearless, quality reporting to millions of Spanish-speaking people, with more translations and original articles in the Spanish language.

This is another powerful reason to make a generous financial gift to LifeSiteNews. We use your money as very few others can to bring about dramatic, real changes. That is the power of truth itself.

Please, if you have never made a donation to LifeSiteNews, now is the time.
