Dominican president using abortion for re-election

As the heated debate in the Dominican Republic over abortion nears its climactic act on Tuesday, a key link between the Catholic Church and President Danilo Medina has resigned, accusing the latter of using abortion as a means to get re-elected, reports LifeSiteNews.

Until last week, Father Manuel Ruiz de la Rosa was the official liaison between the Catholic Church and President Medina, whom it supported in his 2012 election bid. But Medina caught the Church completely by surprise when he vetoed a major reform of the country’s Penal Code at the beginning of December, recommending exceptions to the general ban on abortion in cases when a woman’s life is at risk, or of rape, incest and major deformities. The country’s constitution recognizes that human life begins at conception, and the revised Penal Code makes penalties for doing or aiding abortions tougher. The country’s Congress will vote to accept or reject Medina’s recommendations or “observations,” on Tuesday.

Catholics and Evangelical Protestants have rallied in the hundreds in front of Congress in Santo Domingo, praying in large groups and visiting individual lawmakers for one-on-one meetings.

Father de la Rosa complained in his resignation letter that Medina had kept him—and the Catholic Church—completely in the dark about the veto, and was using abortion to arrange his own re-election in 2016, which is currently unconstitutional.
