REAL MAN - Actor Eduardo Verastequi



(LifeNews):

Eduardo Verástegui, the former Mexican singer and actor who starred in the hit move "Bella," has recorded a new video asking Hispanic voters in the United States to reject Barack Obama because of his pro-abortion views. Verástegui challenges Latino voters to make abortion issues the centerpiece of their voting decisions.

In the new video, conducted in Spanish, Verástegui, says Obama is out of step with the overwhelming majority of Hispanics who are pro-life.

“We need to put an end to abortion and political candidates play a very important role in this matter,” he says.

Verástegui tells viewers that Obama supports abortions throughout pregnancy, including late-term abortions, and has opposed a ban on partial-birth abortions.

Moreover, the actor says Obama “wants to finance abortions with the tax dollars you and I pay.”

The Bella star also talks about the votes Obama cast during his tenure in the Illinois legislature that would deprive newborn infants of medical care if they survive botched abortions.

He says Obama “voted on several occasions against a law to protect babies who survived an abortion and were born alive."

Verástegui describes the bill Obama said he would make his first signature as president, the Freedom of Choice Act, that makes legal all abortions throughout pregnancy and overturns every abortion limit in all 50 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,” he explains.

“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 adds.

During the video, Verástegui punctuates his comments with images of unborn children and pictures of babies who died in abortions.

He also condemns how abortion advocates frequently place their abortion businesses in Hispanic communities.

“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 says.

He complains that abortion is legal “because there are not enough men and women who raise their voice against abortion.”

I think Verastequi is a talented fellow and I am so glad that he has turned his life around and ceased with the womanizing. But on this issue, I think he is misguided. Those who are truly concerned about the right to life and killing should turn their attention to stop those that ARE killing people. A woman ceasing a natural biological process for whatever reason is not that. Some suit or group of persons somewhere deciding blow, gas, or shoot a whole class or nation of people for financial gain or spite *is*. With modern technology abortions are safer but women have always been able to do this long before modern tech (such as when it became clear to the wrongly labeled "Indians" Columbus and his agents would exploit and enslave them, the women terminated existing pregnancies and ceased conceiving).

The only people that have governance in such a matter ARE the individual women. It is their power. We men contribute, and it is in that arena that we have power. We can chose not to, for instance, limit our pleasure and pull out earlier so as not release sperm carrying semen inside the female. We can (more wisely) avail ourselves of technology from condoms to surgical vasectomies.

But our power ends after we decide whether or not to share our essence with the female acting to realize the potential that conception could occur.

I find it pretentious at best to pretend to govern the body of another human being while talking about the sanctity of life while supporting a culture of war, oppression and exploitation where sex is used to sell EVERYTHING (even bottled water) to youth but NO DIALOGUE on birth control and responsibility accompanies it because we need more masses to make capitalism go. This is foolish.
