HLI blasts political attacks on pro-lifers in Kansas and New York City

“True freedoms are being eroded, and false freedoms exalted”

FRONT ROYAL, Virginia – Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro-Carámbula, interim president of Human Life International (HLI) today responded to recent reports of fellow pro-lifers suffering attacks from governmental agencies.

“It is a grave injustice that defenders of the dignity of human life increasingly find themselves under attack from those who wield the power of the state,” said Monsignor Barreiro. “Whether these attacks are directed at a person or at organizations, the aim is clear: to stop any speech or activity which in any way challenges the anti-life orthodoxy that has infected our governing institutions.”

Referring to an ethics trial against former Kansas attorney general Phill Kline, the first part of which concluded yesterday, Monsignor Barreiro said: “Mr. Kline had less than one day to defend himself after enduring over seven days of testimony against him. No one can call this a just trial, it is rather an offense to justice, clearly perpetrated by those in power who want to see Mr. Kline punished for having the integrity to do his job and try to protect the women and children of Kansas.”

Referring to a recent decision by the New York City Council to restrict the language available to anti-abortion pregnancy centers within the city, Monsignor Barreiro said: “Can you imagine any other service being told by its opponents what language they are allowed to use to promote themselves? And yet Planned Parenthood is still allowed to call itself a ‘women’s healthcare provider’ while they destroy unborn human life through abortions and prescribe carcinogenic medication to unsuspecting women.”

“America is running out of time to stand up against what Blessed Pope John Paul II called the ‘thinly disguised totalitarianism’ of a state that has given up on true human values. May Our Lord have mercy on us and deliver us from such assaults, so that we can serve and defend His weakest ones during this time when true freedoms are being eroded, and false freedoms exalted.”
