The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, strongly criticized this Wednesday the decriminalization of abortion in Argentina and assured that, if it depends on him or his government, “abortion will never be approved” in his home country.

The Brazilian president expressed his “deep” regret for the “lives of Argentine babies,” which, he said, from now on will be “subject to being taken from their mothers’ wombs with the State’s consent.”

“We will always fight to protect the lives of the innocent,” emphasized Bolsonaro, who is on vacation at a beach on the coast of Sao Paulo, in his social networks.

Brazil’s Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo also spoke out in harsh terms on Wednesday, saying that Argentina has “legalized barbarism” by decriminalizing abortion.

“Brazil will remain in the vanguard of the right to life and in the defense of the defenseless, no matter how many countries legalize the barbarism of indiscriminate abortion, disguised as ‘reproductive health, ‘social rights or whatever,” he said.

In the same way, also through social networks, congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of the head of state, and president of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Lower House, pronounced himself.

“In a society where the baby, symbol of the greatest love, becomes despicable, the human essence is discarded,” wrote the second of the president’s four sons.

According to the congressman, who like the Brazilian president is critical of the Argentine president, Alberto Fernández who promoted the abortion bill, “allowing the killing of babies means that the right to sexual pleasure is above life itself”.

In his message, Eduardo Bolsonaro added that “now any crime can be legalized, and only one reason will be needed to justify it.

According to the Brazilian Constitution, legal abortion is guaranteed in the country when the pregnancy is the result of rape and also when the life of the pregnant woman is at risk or the fetus has anencephaly.
