Peruvian Abortion Law Prompts Call for Prayer, Fasting

Archbishop Jose Antonio Eguren of Piura and Tumbes in Peru is calling on the faithful to pray and fast, asking God for the reversal of the nation’s new law allowing some abortions.

In a letter sent Aug. 5, Archbishop Eguren repeated his condemnation of a new protocol on abortion enacted on June 27 by the administration of President Ollanta Humala. He warned that it is “the first norm on abortion in our country” that has “dangerously opened the doors to State-sanctioned abortion on demand.”
