• Pro-Abortion Radicalism Setting Fires and Working Other Chaos in … Mexico?

    Surge Summary: Pro-abortion protesters in Mexico assault a Mexico City cathedral and other public property urging “abortion rights” to continue spreading in that nation. Anyone surprised?

    It appears that, even as decades of determined pro-life efforts here in the United States are beginning to pay off, the battle to protect unborn children is losing ground elsewhere. It further appears pro-abortion lunacy is not confided to North America.

    To wit, from National Review’s Megan McArdle:

    Saturday, activists demonstrating in favor of legalizing abortion rights attempted to set afire Mexico City’s Metropolitan Cathedral.

    Social media footage captured part of the demonstration, showing protesters setting the fire outside the structure as drums and music play in the background. (Arson set to a musical score – a nice touch!) Local media reports bout 1,200 activists joined the march for abortion rights.

    Meantime, Roman Catholics blocked the cathedral doors so the protesters couldn’t enter; and firefighters and police worked to prevent further violence and the spread of the fire.

    Agrediendo a los fieles que protegían la entrada de la Catedral, con consignas que son ofensivas contra la fe de cualquiera (y lo digo como no creyente) y faltando a todo respeto posible, así la marcha feminazi en favor del aborto en la #CdMx

    “Thanks to the denunciations in Catholics’ social networks, offering to defend the churches, the government . . . sent police to defend them,” said Mauricio Alfonso Guitar, deputy head of the Cristera National Guard in Mexico City, according to the Catholic News Agency.

    Protestors’ incendiary mischief wasn’t confined just to religious structures, either. They’re equal-opportunity property destroyers, apparently. Fires were also set at the city’s Chamber of Commerce and at several other of the city’s buildings and monuments.

    The archbishop of Mexico City on Saturday urged peace during the turmoil.

    “I greet and recognize all the people who united today to pray, and to care for the churches in the center of Mexico City, as well as to assert the right to manifestation in freedom and in peace,” reads a translation of Archbishop Carlos Aguiar Retes’s statement, which he posted on Twitter. “The Church strongly rejects any form of violent confrontation. Let us defend dialogue, tolerance and love for one’s neighbor as tools to build the country for all.”

    Saludo y reconozco a todas las personas que hoy se unieron para orar, y para cuidar los templos en el centro de la Ciudad de México, así como para hacer valer el derecho a la manifestación en libertad y en paz. La Iglesia rechaza tajantemente toda forma de confrontación violenta

    The nefarious advocacy additionally spread beyond Mexico’s capital.

    Activists took to the streets in other cities around Mexico as well over the weekend, in demonstrations designed to advocate for nationwide legalization of abortion. The procedure has been legal in Mexico City since 2007, and the Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday approved a bill to legalize it.

    So, once more, disrespect for the most innocent of life clumped with disrespect for private property, public order and religious faith goes together quite naturally, not only here in the United States but south of the border as well. Is anyone reading this really taken aback by that connection? Once one has decided he/she has the legal right to take an unborn child’s life … well, Katie bar the bloody-minded door on other barbaric behaviors …

    How do you say that in Spanish?
