Mexico: 500,000 people demonstrate for life, family & rights
Half a million people demonstrated in Mexico for life, family, and fundamental rights.
Event organizer and National Front for the Family President Rodrigo Iván Cortés says that they give a voice to those who do not have one.
Cortés explains that Mexico suffers from a culture of death that tears families apart, and snatches, with illegal organized crime, the lives of many Mexicans.
In addition, he says politicians and Congress seem to be seeking to aggravate the problem by adding a legal organized crime such as abortion.
Cortés condemns the fact that certain groups and politicians are trying to impose gender ideology with laws, in an attempt to confuse Mexicans from their earliest childhood.
He affirms that there will never be peace if life is not respected, that there will never be development if the family is not respected, nor democracy if the freedoms of conscience and belief are not respected.
