11.03.14 A PRO-LIFE REMINDER

From The Esperansa Project
NOVEMBER 3, 2014

Friends, 

In 2008, according to a nationwide survey of abortion regulations, Guam placed a distant last. In other words, Guam, our family friendly, mostly-Catholic island, was the easiest place in the nation to procure an abortion. 

While abortion can't be outlawed, it can be regulated, and while the survey showed that most states had implemented common sense regulatory measures as regards each state's abortions businesses, Guam had essentially done nothing. 

In fact, as we would soon find out, one of the only laws Guam had, the abortion reporting law, was not being complied with nor was it enforced. In short, Guam was a happy unregulated hunting ground for abortionists and their trade. And as we would also later find out, this abortion industry would figure into the sex-trafficking business in the Blue House case.

The Esperansa Project came to life in 2008 to address this gross lack of attention to the Guam's abortion industry. It has been a monster of a battle, but as of today, Guam now has the following abortion regulating laws in place:
  • Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2008 (Introduced by then-Senator Eddie Calvo, Senator Frank F. Blas, Jr., and Senator James V. Espaldon as Bill 374-29 and signed into law by Governor Felix Camacho as P.L. 29-115 on 11/17/2008)
  • Parental Consent for Abortion Act (Introduced by Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. as Bill 323-31 on 09/30/2011, and signed into law as P.L. 31-155 by Governor Calvo on 12/29/2011)
  • Informed Consent for Abortion Law (Introduced at the request of Governor Eddie Calvo on 01/25/11 as Bill 52-31, THE WOMAN'S REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH INFORMATION ACT OF 2011, and signed into law by Governor Calvo as P.L. 31-235 on 11/01/12.
  • Infant Child's Right to Life Act (Introduced by Senator Frank Aguon, Jr. on 09/25/2013 and signed into law by Governor Calvo as P.L. 32-090 on 11/27/13.)
  • Bill 193-32 (An act to allow the implementation of the Informed consent for abortion law. Introduced by D.G. Rodriguez, Jr. / F.B. Aguon, Jr. / C.M. Dueñas on 09/23/13 and signed into law as P.L. 32-089 on 11/27/13

Each of these new laws took a huge amount of effort and in the case of the Informed Consent for Abortion Law, took nearly 5 years to finally pass. None of these laws could have happened without some brave fighters in the legislature and in the governor's office.
