On March 9, 2022, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei declared that Guatemala is the “Ibero-American Pro-Life Capital.” In December 2021, President Giammattei said that Guatemala is “a country of faith” such that in governing it, “each government institution has a clear direction and coordination in respecting life from conception and the protection of the family as the central axis of society … Our Government has promoted the Public Policy for the Protection of Life and the Family as an Institution. Let me even share with you that Guatemala will be declared the Ibero-American Pro-Life Capital on March 9.”
Neydy Casillas, Esq., CWA’s Vice President of International Affairs, has been in Guatemala this week.
“It was an honor for me to represent Concerned Women for America and our hundreds of thousands of members as Guatemala was declared the Pro-life Capital of Iberoamérica.
“Through the years, the Guatemalan people have stood up to defend life from the moment of conception until natural death. Despite the pressure of international organizations and countries around the world (including the U.S.), Guatemala has been faithful to its values and its national law, not allowing anyone to interfere with its position on life as a nation.
“Today, Guatemala has become an example of courage for all the nations to defend God’s creation.”
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, congratulated the people of Guatemala:
“The recognition of the intrinsic value of every human life, no matter how vulnerable, lies at the very foundation of freedom and liberty. Therefore, we commend the Guatemalan people for declaring Guatemala the Pro-Life Capital of Ibero-America. It is exciting for Concerned Women for America to be there to celebrate with you. “¡Bien hecho!” May your efforts to love and protect mothers and babies serve as an example and an inspiration throughout the world that we can do better by treating each other with compassion and care at every stage of life.”
