Portugal Citizens: Vote NO on February 11, 2007

March 11, 2007 Update: Abortion was legalized

Update: Success!

Original: Let's get the word out about this! If you are a citizen of Portugal, vote NO. If you are not, please still pass this message on to save human lives! We, as bloggers, can make a difference only if we truly devote ourselves to this! So, please pass on this message.

Portugal's top cleric Cardinal Jose da Cruz Policarpo has urged followers to reject abortion and remember the sanctity of life when they vote. All life must be protected! Please, vote NO! Let us get out our Rosaries and pray!

Catholic leaders in Portugal are organizing pro-life advocates against a referendum there next month that would legalize abortion within the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. Voters in the western European nation will head to the polls on February 11 to vote and polls show the referendum passing. Father Carlos Azevedo, secretary of Portugal's episcopal conference, says that several local diocesan groups have formed to encourage voters to oppose it. He said they will be "enlightening of consciences" before the vote and told Zenit that the conference will also be helping the pro-life cause by publishing brochures on the abortion referendum.

I should mention that a few years an abortion ship called Women on Waves went to conduct abortions off the coast of Portugal, the navy there responded by sending a Frigate to make it turn back.
