Famous Mexican actor rips Obama over abortion, warns U.S. Latinos
Los Angeles, September 24 .-The movie star Eduardo Verástegui has recorded a special video message to encourage Hispanic voters in the U.S. to put an end to abortion and to expose the radical abortion position of presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Verástegui, who is perhaps best known in the U.S. for his pro-life film "Bella," presents his challenge to Latino voters by calling attention to the fact that most abortion clinics are located in Hispanic neighborhoods and that the Spanish media is saturated with pro-abortion advertising.
"Abortion is not only a lucrative industry; it is also used by people who are racist as a means to eliminate our people, since they consider us to be a threat to democracy in this country," Verástegui asserts.
After noting that more than 3,000 babies are aborted each day in the U.S. and that 650 of those babies are Hispanic, the actor states that abortion is legal "because there are not enough men and women who raise their voice against abortion."
"We need to put an end to abortion and political candidates play a very important role in this matter," he continued, pointing out that Obama supports abortions performed during the last trimester of pregnancy, inhuman partial birth abortion," and that Obama "wants to finance abortions with the tax dollars you and I pay."
As a lawmaker, Obama "voted on several occasions against a law to protect babies who survived an abortion and were born alive," Verástegui states.
"Obama is committed to removing all the pro-life laws that in many states currently offer protection to unborn babies and their mothers. Mr. Obama does not agree that the parents of a 13 year-old girl who is pregnant should be notified before she has an abortion," the actor underscored.
"Obama is more interested in maintaining the legality of abortion that in the well-being of the babies, children and families of this country. Let us unite and do something to defend life at every stage, from conception to natural death," he says.Verástegui's message about Obama is punctuated by clips from the video "The Hard Truth," which shows graphic images from real abortions.
The Mexican actor explains that just as teachers in schools show videos of the Holocaust to expose the truth about the atrocities committed by the Nazis, he too is including the video to show the horror of abortion.
