Mexican film star Eduardo Verastegui has recorded a video message aimed at Hispanic voters that slams Barack Obama’s record on abortion.

Verastegui, best known in the U.S. for his role in the 2006 pro-life movie “Bella,” asserts in the message that most abortion clinics are located in Hispanic neighborhoods and that the Spanish media frequently carry pro-abortion advertising.

“Abortion is not only a lucrative industry, it is also used by people who are racist as a means to eliminate our people, since they consider us to be a threat to democracy in this country,” Verastegui states.

He maintains that abortion is legal “because there are not enough men and women who raise their voice against abortion.

“We need to put an end to abortion and political candidates play a very important role in this matter.”

He points out that Obama supports abortions performed during the last trimester of pregnancy and “wants to finance abortions with the tax dollars you and I pay.”

As a lawmaker, Obama “voted on several occasions against a law to protect babies who survived an abortion and were born alive,” Verastegui says in remarks reported by the Catholic News Agency.

He adds: “Obama is more interested in maintaining the legality of abortion that in the well-being of the babies, children and families of this country. Let us unite and do something to defend life at every stage, from conception to natural death.”
