Chile, the Miners, and Respect for Life

Chile, the Miners, and Respect for Life

A country rallied around 33 trapped miners.  With a profound respect for life, the Chileans wouldn’t give up and in so doing, they kept an entire world riveted to their story.  Sixty-nine days later, the miners were rescued.    The  short video shares the story and also gives a fabulous look into the successful pro-life culture of Chile…one that is worth of emulation.  This video tells much more than just the story of the miners, however.

In Chile, abortion is illegal; yet Chile has the lowest maternal mortality rate on the entire continent…much to the chagrin of the pro-abortion zealots who claim you can’t lower maternal mortality rates without legalized abortion.  Chile is the safest place in all of Latin American for a mother to have a baby.

“Estamos Connectados!” (We are connected!) is the title of a public service campaign put together by the government to educate and encourage citizens to care for their unborn children.  In fact the ads clearly state:  “An invitation from the government to protect children.”   Watch the video all the way to the end to see the public service ads. The cultural differences might make the ads seem a little different to you, but watch and marvel at a country that understands and respects life from its inception to its end.  Countries of the world have a lot to learn from Chile.
