Creative and succesful Pro-Life Campaign in Latvia opens effective discussions on the "Protection of the Right to live"

Between August and October 2012 the small Baltic country of Latvia has been the place of a creative and effective Pro-Life campaign aimed at reopening the public debate over abortion, in a country with a very high level of abortion and a law demographic rate. A specific aim of the campaign is also to introduce in the law on sexual and reproductive health the principle that “the child is protected from the day of conception, and to make pre-abortion consultation systematic. This campaign ended on October 16 with an official conference on the “Protection of the Right to live” held at the Latvian Parliament; a special attention has been given to the San José Articles by the Secretary of State to Justice and various speakers.

My acknowledgement for the 15th place on the European Pro-Life Personalities list

On the 10th October 2012, the European Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development organized a meeting entitled "Anti-Choice Opposition in Europe: Recent trends in the global war on women on the European front". This Forum presents itself as a network of MPs from across Europe who are interested in protecting women's sexual and reproductive rights, supporting the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development. During this meeting, a list with the "Top 27 European Anti-choice Personalities" was presented and spread. I was classified as no 15 on this Top 27.
