CONLAMIC Leaders Opposes President Obama’s Reversal U.S. Foreign Abortion Policy

Washington, DC – President Obama's decision to reverse U.S. policy toward pro-abortion foreign guidelines comes as a blow to the Latino Evangelical Christian community and all American’s who believe in the sanctity of human life. The National Coalition of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC) finds this reversal, carried out quietly behind closed doors alarming.

“President Barack Obama's Executive Order will now direct tax payer’s money toward pro-abortion foreign policies and supporting a culture of terminating life- contrary to the traditional values held by many American’s,” said Rev. Miguel Rivera, President of CONLAMIC.

The Christian conservative church stands up for the right to life. With this understanding, President Obama may have had no other choice but to execute this behind closed doors and away from the Press to avoid fanfare and minimize a political backlash.

“If this is President Obama’s first order of business, then American’s should be fearful of what’s to come with regards to traditional values. This will certainly have spiritual consequences for our nation,” said Rev. Rivera.

Latino evangelicals are asking, what’s next? We are deeply concerned that similar actions will continue to jeopardize traditional values and the right to life. More than ever, we will strongly advocate for the preservation of traditional family values, including family, marriage, and life.

“Our Hispanic Evangelical leaders have the utmost respect for our new President, nevertheless, our moral obligation is to speak up for alienable rights and the sanctity of life that is the foundation of our country,” concluded Rev. Rivera.

The National Coalition of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC) is the largest Latino Christian advocacy organization in the nation, representing 16,000 churches in 32 states. For more information, visit www.conlamic.org or www.conlamic.net.
