Here are some statements from the speakers:

Amy Sinclair: “The life defense is a valuable defense to take on. And I want to encourage you because while in the United States for 50 years we went in the direction of harming life and not defending the unborn, we are currently in the process of really embracing the right of states to protect and defend their own citizens. . And while it’s not going to be an immediate solution, there are people who have passionately advocated for human life since its inception and I’m proud to say that Iowa has been a strong supporter of that fight and was honestly one of the first states to push for what became a national movement that ultimately overthrew Roe Vs. Wade.”

Eddie Lucio highlighted: “The fight for the life of the unborn is also the fight of all the vulnerable lives to whom we owe ourselves as public servants”; and noted: “The pro-life movement is broader than the fight against abortion, because it implies that we must protect families with health care or transportation expenses, everything that hinders the birth of a new life.”

Wendy Wright explained: “The problem we were facing is that many Americans were unaware of the harm that abortion causes to the unborn, their suffering, and they were also unaware of the consequences of abortion on women.” proliferate in the different states legislative initiatives on: The basics of what abortion means and how it harms women (these initiatives made known information and support proposals to continue with motherhood) and show women the signs of life of children in the womb (sound of her heart, demonstration of the pain caused to fetuses in abortions). “We worked over decades to present these initiatives. When they were rejected, they were reintroduced at the state level and Every time these bills were presented, the number of people who received information about what abortion really means for the unborn and for the mother increased.This produced a slow change in society, which received more and more information until the time came when people began to ask themselves ‘why don’t we vote on this?’” Wright also specified: “At the same time the entire support network that exists in the US for those women who they decide to go ahead with their pregnancy and have difficulties being mothers”.

Joseph Grogan:  “The perseverance in the struggle by the pro-life movement has been very important, their insistence, they did not give up. They never lost hope and kept going.” And he encouraged working together for this cause: “It is very important that European activists work with Americans, because this experience has been very positive and it is essential that we continue together to continue making progress.”

Jane Adolphe made reference to the importance of academic training: “In recent years there has also been the training of a new generation of legislators by universities, mostly Catholic, which trained in the philosophy of natural law and in the possibility of dialogue between faith and reason”.

Clarke Forysthe, which told the story of the Roe v. Wade, pointed out that after the new sentence, 13 states announced measures to legislate with this new doctrine, limiting the weeks until which abortion can be done and legislating in favor of measures that favor maternity. “Was the US prepared for this sentence? Yes, because of the decades of preparation of civil organizations that worked to protect and help mothers in vulnerable situations, yes, because of all the years of information that the pro-life movement had provided to society.” And he explained that there are currently 23 states that have taken measures to limit abortion in the US. She also said: “Abortion damages everything and solves nothing. You have to show that women progress in states where abortion is restricted.”

William Saunder He specified: “We have to work culturally to defend women in everything in which they need support.” And he sent a message of encouragement to Spain: “Never give up, for 50 years we have fought for the truth and we have achieved it”.

Carrie Severino explained that “For a long time, judges with more political than legal skills were chosen. In the previous legislature there was a coincidence that the Senate did not have a sufficient minority to block the appointments of the judges that have finally made it possible to change the ruling that affirmed that abortion is a constitutional right in the United States.
