Pro-life Catholic wins spot in Chile’s presidential finals
November 22, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: A Catholic politician with a strong pro-life record has won a surprise victory in the first round of Chile’s presidential voting.
José Antonio Kast, a member of the Schoenstatt movement, will now be matched against a leftist, Gabriel Boric, on the December 19 final ballot.
Kast had run an unsuccessful campaign for the presidency in 2017, under the slogan: “Fewere taxes, less government, pro-life.” The father of nine children, he is a strong social conservative who favors free-market economic policies.
