Life and Family No Longer Silenced at the Organization of American States

Pro-Life Message Given a Voice at Annual Meeting Held This Year in Paraguay

The OAS General Assembly takes place every year in a different city of the American continent. This year, the assembly was convened to discuss and exchange ideas on “development and social inclusion.”
