For Right to Life

Daily News

The famous Mexican actress Laura Zapata will be starring in a new play authored by herself, which she hints will show the psychological damage suffered by women who have abortions.


According to Zapata, the work will depict an encounter between the woman for whom abortion was legalized in the United States, (presumably Norma McCorvey the plaintiff in the "Roe v. Wade" Supreme Court case that resulted in the legalization of abortion in 1973), and a woman from an organization called simply "Provida" (Pro-Life).

The IFRL is the largest grassroots pro-life organization in Illinois. A non-profit organization, that serves as the state coordinating body for local pro-life chapters representing thousands of Illinois citizens working to restore respect for all human life in our society. The IFRL is composed of people of different political persuasions, various faiths and diverse economic, social and ethnic backgrounds. Since 1973 the Illinois Federation for Right to Life has been working to end abortion and restore legal protection to those members of the human family who are threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Diverse though we are, we hold one common belief - that every human being has an inalienable right to life that is precious and must be protected. IFRL is dedicated to restoring the right to life to the unborn, and protection for the disabled and the elderly.   Click here to learn more about the IFRL.

Famous Mexican Actress to Star in Pro-Life Play Authored by Herself

"I think this is a topic that is necessary to bring up, because those cases are never talked about, even though laws are made (regarding them)...What causes an event of this type for a woman is not talked about openly."


According to El Universal, Zapata also noted that there are women whose psychological damage from abortion is so great that they can't bear to have children again. She says she wants women to know that there are better options available to them than abortion.


Zapata is well known for her roles in Mexican "telenovelas", or soap opras, as they are known in the United States. Her career spans 33 years, although it was interrupted when she was kidnapped and held for 16 days in 2002.


Her kidnapper was eventually arrested and imprisoned for his crime. Zapata visited him in jail and forgave him just days before he died, apparently a suicide.
