Abortion has been officially outlawed in Nicaragua! I wish the Philippines would do the same, instead of deliberating the merits of a proposal to aggressively reduce births through contraception, and pro-abortion laws will be quick to follow once the contraceptive culture is entrenched. We already have the unborn's rights in our constitution, and the fertility rate is already down to about 3 children per family (about 2 in Metro Manila, the capital region).
God's blessings on the Nicaraguan government, and the citizens who bravely put their faith and future in God and in their children, rather than anti-life propaganda. May the Filipino lawmakers and citizenry have the same courage and inspiration.
