Peru, like most South American nations have strict guidelines on terminating pregnancy

Peru may be making the procurement of an abortion easier. The South American nation, along with  many others on the continent, have had very stringent laws on taking the life of a child in the womb through procured abortion. Every procured abortion always kills a child. That little girl or boy has a fundamental human right to life. Abortion advocates say that more recent legislation will now make the procedure more accessible there.We do not use the phrase "terminating a pregnancy" on Catholic Online because it is one of those terms used by those who oppose the fundamental human right to life of the little boy or girl in the womb. The pregnancy always ends because the child is killed.What is really terminated is a life. 

Women who become  pregnant as a result of the crime of rape are not allowed an abortion in Peru because the child in the womb is also recognized as having a right to life. The U.N. is attempting to coerce Peru to change its laws to allow abortion in cases of rape.The legislators of Peru do not want to promote another crime in response to horrendous crime of rape. The death of the child would also be a criminal act.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Peru's current abortion guidelines follow recommendations made by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. In a 2011 ruling, the U.N. said Peru had violated the human rights of a 13-year-old girl, known only as "L.C." who was denied an abortion.

We do not use the phrase "terminating a pregnancy" on Catholic Online because it is one of those terms used by those who oppose the fundamental human right to life of the little boy or girl in the womb. The pregnancy always ends because the child is killed.What is really terminated is a life. 

Laws in Peru currently allow abortions when a woman's health or life is at risk. The "health exception" has been in many cases as a kind of "loophole" to allow abortions. The phrase "risk to health" has a lot of "wiggle room."

The Center for Reproductive Rights", an organization which opposes the Right to Life of the child in the womb and uses "Reproductive Rights" as a propaganda term to hide the facts, indicated to the local press that in the case of L.C., doctors refused the procedure because they said it posed a threat to her pregnancy, which was the result of rape. L.C. had a miscarriage. She was also rendered quadriplegic.

Let's all pray that people make the right decisions --

"In addition to implementing the new guidelines, we also urge the state to provide reparations to L.C. and other women who have suffered greatly because of Peru's failure to provide legal abortion services," the abortion advocacy organization said in a statement.
 
Women who become pregnant as a result of rape are not allowed an abortion in Peru, as in many other Latin and South American Nations, because the legislators have determined that taking the life of the child conceived as a result of one crime would only result in another crime.

The U.N. has pressured Peru to change its laws to allow abortion in cases of rape.

The abortion advocacy Center for Reproductive Rights told the press, "The devastating impact of criminalizing abortion in cases of rape is particularly far-reaching in Peru, which has the highest rate of reported rape in South America."

A Peruvian law prohibits emergency contraception to Peruvian women who get pregnant as a result of rape for the same reason that procured surgical abortion is not allowed. Much of what is euphemistically called "emergency contraception" is abortion inducing. If the child has already been conceived, he or she is denied a place of development in the womb.
