Guatemala was excluded from a meeting that Joe Biden held with world leaders over the weekend, a slight that likely is due to the country’s strong pro-life stance.
Life News reports:
Barely a year in office, Biden already has taken more actions to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions than any other president in U.S. history. His administration is pressuring pro-life countries like Guatemala to abandon human rights for unborn babies and legalize abortion on demand.
But Guatemala is resisting, and the Institute for Women’s Health believes that is why Biden did not invite Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei to his Democracy Summit over the weekend, The Christian Post reports.
“Guatemala was not invited to take part in the Summit, despite being a democratic nation,” the Institute for Women’s Health said in a statement. “Alfonso Aguilar, president of the International Human Rights Group, suggested that ideological differences were likely a significant reason for the country’s omission, since Guatemala is unapologetically pro-life.”
The Latin American country has remained steadfast in its commitment to protecting unborn babies from abortion.
The Christian Post reports:
Last year, Guatemala bowed out of an agreement that allowed Planned Parenthood to operate in the country after Giammattei expressed concerns about the organization’s stance on abortion.
Upon reversing the agreement made by Guatemala’s interior minister at the time, Giammattei declared that “I will not endorse in my administration the creation, registration or start-up of any organization that goes against life.”
