El Salvador bishops warn: CEDAW threatens the unborn
May 11, 2010
The bishops of El Salvador are urging the nation’s president and legislators not to ratify the pro-abortion Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). The treaty “not only threaten[s] the newly conceived fetus, but it could also bring serious consequences to the dignity of women,” said Archbishop José Luis Escobar Alas of San Salvador at a May 9 press conference.
