BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, September 7,( – Many people in different countries work tirelessly and ceaselessly to protect the unborn, and the question is often asked “at what cost”. Apparently no price is too high for Archbishop Cardinal Jorge Beroglio of Buenos Aires.

While encouraging Catholics to defend the unborn against abortion the Cardinal made it clear that they should strive for justice even if“they persecute or kill you.”

As in many other predominantly Catholic South American countries, Argentina is engaged in a debate over the legalization of abortion that is being sought by NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) and various government officials, usually in collusion with U.S., U.N. and other international population control organizations who are quietly financing the local activist groups.

Reminding the faithful that they have the duty to defend life “from the beginning until the end,” the Cardinal encouraged them to persevere even “if they persecute you, calumniate you, set traps for you, take you to court or kill you.”
