Eduardo Verastegui hosts pro-life Latino Conference in LA

The pro-life movie "Bella" has saved 125 babies from abortion, but Eduardo Verastegui is not content to rest on his laurels. He spoke of his organizaion "Manto de Guadalupe" in my interview here, and this conference in Los Angeles will bring him one step closer to his goal of giving poor Latina women in LA real choice; choice to keep their babies rather than abort them.

The funds raised … will be used to open a medical center in Los Angeles that provides free, high-quality care for pregnant women and their preborn babies," stated Eduardo Verástegui in a press release.

Verástegui said the forthcoming Guadalupe Medical Center will be situated in an area that has ten abortion clinics, making the center “an oasis of life in the midst of a desert of death.” The dream of building a pro-life medical center in L.A. has been on the Catholic performer’s mind for several years, after he discovered that at least nine abortion clinics were operating within a one mile stretch of the city.
Wouldn't this be a wonderful country if the power of Hollywood saved lives instead of destroying them?
If stars cared as much for human life as they do for the rainforest?
God bless your work, Eduardo!

Did you ask him about, or did he mention, the progress of Metanoia Films making the movie about Blessed Miguel Pro? There were reports this was the next project on his list.
