The IACHR already recommended abortion in El Salvador. Now it goes one step further.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights is ruling on abortion as a human right in order to pressure the El Salvadorian government in the case of a decade-old case Beatriz vs. El Salvador this Thursday, March 22-23, 2023.

The pro-abortion movements and the global agenda within the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) is pushing to legalize abortion ALL OVER THE CONTINENT.

Towards this end, on March 22 and 23, a public hearing will be held at the I

nter-American Court of Human Rights in Costa Rica.

How do they hope to legalize abortion across the Americas?

Through a case from 2013 – 10 years ago, using the story of a woman. Her name is Beatriz. A woman from El Salvador, with limited resources, Beatriz became pregnant with her second child and suffered from lupus.

What happened?

Beatriz became pregnant with her second daughter Leilani. Leilani was diagnosed with anencephaly. Although her condition does not give her less dignity, the pro-abortion commission IACHR began to pressure Beatriz to abort the Leilani, arguing that Beatriz’s life was in danger.

Due to the pressure and fear tactics, Beatriz requested an abortion. Her request was rejected because abortion is not allowed in El Salvador. Regardless, abortion would not have improved the lives of either Beatriz or Leilani.

After this decision, Beatriz was induced into labor with Leilani at six months of gestation. Sadly, Leilani died. Beatriz held Leilani in her arms and buried her.

The story continues four years later when Beatriz dies in a motorcycle accident. Beatriz dies of nothing to do with abortion, or the consequences of childbirth. However, pro-abortion groups have taken the story and used it in efforts to achieve their goal: legalization of abortion throughout Latin America.

“It is horrific that Beatriz’s story is being weaponized against all of the moms and their sons and daughters across the Americas to advocate for the legal termination of human beings. Every life is worth living,” stated Bethany Janzen, Pro-Life Global P

resident. Pro-Life Global empowers youth leaders internationally to educate about the value of human life and help those in pregnancy crisis in their schools, universities, and communities.

It is important to remember that this decision would be CONTINENTAL and that the Inter-American Court of Human Rights would be violating their own founding document, the American Convention on Human Rights, Article 4 which dictates the right to life from the moment of conception.
