Malta President Unveils National Pro-Life Monument on Island Nation

Adami, the president of Malta, has unveiled a national pro-life monument commissioned by the national pro-life group Gift of Life.

Malta has long been considered one of the most pro-life nations in the world and abortion is illegal there.

The ceremony marking the introduction of the memorial to unborn children took place on March 25.

In late 2004, the United Nations placed Malta on a “hit list” of pro-life nations to be pressured to change their laws.

Maltese leaders criticized a document released by a UN committee urging the nation to consider allowing abortions in cases of rape or incest or to protect the health of the mother.

In a statement, they called the recommendation “objectionable” and “unacceptable” and urged Malta residents to continue protecting the right to life of unborn children from conception.
