The news is shocking: The Savior, small dollarized country and chaired by a demagogue authoritarian, a judge sentenced 30 years in prison for a woman who suffered a miscarriage.

Such cruelty surrounds him Tucker-Carlson –width of FoxNews and spokesperson for donald trump and the ultra-right – who argue that the defense of the right to abortion enshrined in the United States Constitution is a leftist attempt to destroy Christianity. No more no less.

Sorry, there is more: this struggle of women would be a product of hatred. Here, Carlson resorts to the same perverse inversion that has been used by tyrants and populists of all persuasions meant to embody the good and the destiny of the nation.

Now the president of Canada, Justin Trudeau, provides medical services of your country for american women that they are prevented from aborting.
