Scandal in Colombia by the abortion of a baby of 7 months pregnancy against the will of the father



Juan Pablo Medina, 25 years old, he went to justice to try to prevent his girlfriend, a student of 22 years old with a pregnancy of seven months, submit to an abortion.

Medina, an advanced student of Law, a native of Popayan, southwest of Bogotá, told the media that the expected baby had been conceived, by common agreement, and that the child had “no involvement, no malformation”.

He said that his girlfriend had 14 months of relationship and that by common agreement they decided to have a child. Last September they found that she had three months of pregnancy. “We became very happy. We baptize the child as John Sebastian”.

Things changed when on December 27, her mother knew of the pregnancy and tried to dissuade her with the argument that it would affect their studies. The woman began to separate the young people and John Paul lost contact with his girlfriend, until he learned, in January, that she “was hospitalized voluntarily applying the process of the IVE (Voluntary termination of Pregnancy)” .

“On January 7, communicates a family for her with a family member of mine -she told– and you said that the mother was in a hospital in Cali and the baby brought the birth”, something that he denies.

The young man declared himself convinced that the decision was not of her but due to the pressure of his family, especially his mother.

At the beginning of January he learned that his girlfriend was in the hospital for a course “critical state of health” and “birth” of the baby. But the EPS (Provider Health) of the young woman refused to certify that there is a causal of “mental health” to abort.

Juan Pablo Medina was very missed in the face of these arguments, “because until the last examination on December 6 the baby was in optimal conditions”. Up to that point had done prenatal care with normal.

The relatives of the girl told him that she claimed to not be “ready to welcome the baby, which he wanted to finish his career and (which had) the financial means”.

The hospital of Cali discharged to the mother in a perfect state on the 21st of January. Then came into action, an ngo called -ironically- “Profamilia”, whose specialty at the time of its creation (1965) was the contraception and now is the abortion [is affiliated to the International Federation of Family Planning], since the justice colombia adopted a Protocol of abortion is not punishable, similar to that which governs in Argentina right now.

In may of 2006, and by judgment C-355/06 of the Constitutional Court, the abortion had been decriminalized in Colombia in cases of risk of life of the mother, rape and fetal malformations.

The issue remains in litigation, and there are lawsuits filed before the Constitutional Court of Colombia, to defend the rights of the unborn child.

“All colombians, we know that (Profamilia) is one of the entities that he is in favor of abortion,” said Medina in an interview with “They show that she is affected psychologically, that has a tendency to want to perform a suicide and others”, he added.

Medina, meanwhile, insisted that her unborn child was “a child who can practically live out of the womb of his mother”, and that he was willing to raise him alone.

“If a single mother can get ahead, a single parent, you can also”, he said and asked not to take his “life to the baby” and handed themselves to him.

“For me, he is Juan Sebastian, I already bought everything, the crib, the grooming kit. I want to surrender him to me, and would not violate his life,” he said.

Through its lawyers filed a criminal complaint for attempted homicide, and an action of guardianship. In the objection to guardianship filed by John Paul Medina, Profamilia held that the 22 January, we had done a psychological assessment of the mother, which confirmed the grounds of “mental health” and arranged for the completion of the proceedings as it was “their obligation”.

But the judge had ruled that it was not enough with the view of Profamilia and calling for a new assessment of the causal health of the mother is used to perform the abortion. The center replied that the request of the justice was an obstacle to a “right” key. And that he was “obliged to ensure the provision of services IVE” under the instructions of the Circular 003 office of the Superintendent of Health “to perform the procedure, if medically possible, within 5 business days of the consultation”. Also argued that to ask for additional medical certificates was “an obstacle and a barrier to administrative” to the “right” of abortion.

Jaime Lopez, the owner of Popayán whose functions, among others, are the guardianship and promotion of human rights and the protection of the public interest, said that if the case is not brought them on the grounds laid down by the Constitutional Court in the procedure would be illegal. And announced that they would try to get in contact with the authorities of the clinic to “try to establish what will be the treatment that will follow”, and that they considered convening social workers of the clinic and of the Secretariat of Health, and the office of the Ombudsman to accompany the case “because the most important thing is to protect the right to life, when it is not one of the circumstances established by the Court to be able to proceed to practice this kind of procedures.”

But, regardless of any of this, nor attend to the plea of John Paul Medina, Profamilia performed the abortion of the baby of 7 months of gestation, on the 11th of February last.

The struggle of John Paul for the right to birth his son had become a trend in social networks and managed to get to the media, but not reached. Neither the intervention of the justice.

“The doctors from Profamilia does not have a soul, do not have professional ethics. For them it is very easy to remove from the womb other baby more in Colombia,” Medina said, when I still believed possible to save the baby.

The judge had not rejected all the “right” of the mother to abort, but put in doubt the grounds alleged and in its judgment of January 30, had said to Profamilia that it was not possible to give“fulfilled the requirement established by the Constitutional Court referred to the medical certification”, taking into account the gynecologist (Profamilia) “is not ideal to conceive in front of the mental health of a person.” In consequence, requested a new assessment to the EPS of the pregnant mother before they have the abortion.

The entity did not expect that it might be fulfilled which was ordered by the judge , and proceeded to abort John Sebastian, before the justice would have resolved the question of background.

The terms in which Profamilia justified on the grounds of mental health, dated February 6, are the following: “(The young man) says that since we learned of the pregnancy has experienced a number of changes on the emotional level becomes depressed, in crisis, crying, says that he has frequently had negative thoughts associated with suicidal ideation (such as rushing towards the vehicle, jumping from a third floor, cut the veins or the stomach), has presented alteration of sleep and appetite, becomes scattered, with lack of concentration and isolation, manifested that have generated changes in the way they relate with people and would like to go back to being the joyous youth that liked to go out, dance, recochar [sic, for fun] and that I felt happy.”

“Through the assessment concluded, the entity – it may be shown that the current condition of the patient from a pregnancy that was not planned is generating an involvement in the mental sphere, representing risks to the physical and mental health in the short and long term, being thus protected under the grounds of risk to health”.

Is it credible? In any case, it was the doubt about whether the girl was informed of the will of her boyfriend to raise the child on your own. Or the alternative of giving in adoption. The version of the young that the pregnancy was not planned, nor was it checked with the father, nor with the environment.

After two weeks in which the case was in the media and in the networks, it knew that finally, on February 11, it carried out the abortion. The father reported the judicial authorities. “They killed him”, he said.

Immediately, initiated other legal process, now with the aim of they are convicted those responsible. Will the criminal complaint both against his girlfriend and against her mother, instigator of the abortion.

In a statement, the young man thanked all colombians who had been backed in this fight, and he spoke of the pain that he had felt the loss of a son who wanted to “see the birth, seeing it grow and give” all his love. “Oh, let us not allow more Juanses in Colombia!”, asked.

“This type of actions carried out by Profamilia are a sample of the abuse of the decisions of the Constitutional Court”, he added.

The Institution Provides professional of Health who performed the abortion warned that it will not disclose the details of the procedure, invoking professional secrecy.

Is that it would be extremely shocking to you to reveal these details, since at that stage of the pregnancy you can’t even talk about abortion: it is an induced birth, and certainly it is better for them not to explain in what way put an end to the life of a child with seven months of gestation.

This case exposes the controversial aspects of the so-called protocols of abortion is not punishable; namely, the ambiguity in the definition of certain grounds (such as the “risk to the health of the mother”), the non-fixation of a time limit in gestation for the realization of this practice, the denial of the rights of the father of the child conceived; and the lack of willingness to seek alternative solutions and on the contrary a real insisting on the most drastic and no return on the part of those who then claim that “nobody wants abortion.”

Living in Italy under the shadow of the Coronavirus




In the past three days, my life completely changed. I live in Piacenza, a few miles from the areas most affected by the coronavirus in Italy. The city is not in a situation of quarantine absolute. However, it seems that we could find in the source of the outbreak.

The situation in the country began to get complicated on the Saturday morning. At that time, I was arranging a regular meeting with my friends. Some of them tried to deal with the news as calmly as possible, but others began to cancel their presence.

The paranoia of being so close to a place where -possibly – there were positive cases gradually took over all. “Best not to get out”, “My family does not want us to be in the street”, were some of the comments that sprung up with the passing hour. Finally, the party was cancelled.

In the afternoon I went out to walk to the street. Everything seemed to be fine, if you did not take into account the amount of people that were circulating; in contrast with the usual image of a center-packed, only a few brave ones are encouraged to go for a ride. Already glimpsed the first barbijos.

But that all changed on Sunday. The shelves of the supermarkets were completely empty. It was impossible to get the products with the most basic: water, flour, pasta, frozen. And until it is unleashed in various fights for the past few bottles of water and packets of sugar.

The stock was total. And barbijos, the persons totaled latex gloves. Todo this, again, without that the authorities had declared the quarantine.

On Sunday afternoon, the president of the region announced the closure of schools, universities, bars and restaurants for a week. At night, the week had become two.

The weekends are always very quiet in Piacenza. But the usual calm became a silence frightening. There is not a single noise in the street; a few are encouraged to go out and only do it in self, and to seek food or drinks.

The paranoia became the dominant state. A well-known sneezed in the post office and the cashier refused to serve you. And the people waiting next to her will made clear her apprehension. Is the new normal: who shows even the slightest outline of a symptom of respiratory illness is completely isolated.

On Monday resembled a Sunday like never in the past five years. The streets are empty, circulate a few cars and see more than ten people to walk through the center is an anomaly. And those who do are equipped with gloves and masks.

Piacenza seems to be dead. As every city near Lombardy, where we recorded the first positive case in the country. Just listen to the chimes of the churches that we announce the passing of a new time. Two days ago, that I don’t hear anyone talking outside my house. All the people that I know are in their respective homes, no one is encouraged to leave. Water and cigarettes are the most desired products, and are not in any part.

The situation is terrifying.

I can say, without any doubt, that this I will mark of by life. In 72 hours the number of people affected increased from 2 to more than 15. And for Tuesday, the figure had risen to 222, with seven dead. We all have fear.

And, again, Piacenza is located only in preventive measures., How do they live then in the villages in quarantine? Gives Me chills just thinking about it.

Just wait, be at home and pray not to have any symptoms.

Tired of their mistreatment, hit him with a bat and descuartizó with an axe




The July 20, 1971 the story of Maria Trinidad Ramirez Poblano, a woman who is humble and sold tamales in the colony Portals, filled the headlines of the tabloid press in Mexico City.

Although the background of the crime were the heartbreak, the misery and the conditions unfortunate in that he lived the whole family, the fact that the woman was murdered-ball hitting and then dismembered with an axe the body of her husband, overshadowed any semblance to reality.

As pointed out in their statements to the authorities, one night, the woman decided to end the abuse of the victims she and her five children at the hands of her husband, a hairdresser named Paul Diaz.

Hours before, Paul had been beaten savagely with a belt to three small children, leaving them with marks on the body that were added to the made days earlier.

To the glutton, while the man slept, his wife took a baseball bat with which he dealt three heavy blows. He was covered in blood and no longer breathing.

“He said that once he was ‘cold and not breathing’ proceeded to chop off his legs with an axe, as expressed in the book “Red notice ” 70’s” writers Myriam Laurini and Rolo Diez.

The axe had been borrowed to a neighbor of the neighborhood who lived then.

Once descuartizó the body, stuffed in sacks that kept the leaves to make tamales, and then threw them in the street.

A part of the remains of the hairdresser were found on July 19 to a side of a house marked with the number 508, in the South street 71-A, colonia Justo Sierra, to the south of the capital of the country.

The domestic worker of the house had moved the sacks thinking that they were dead chickens, but seeing that it was human remains, gave notice to the authorities.

As Paul had a criminal record for theft, once they took the fingerprints of the body was easy to identify it.

Just arrived at the home of Mary, Trinity, the woman confessed that she was responsible for and explained that her husband had been years maltratandola together with their children and, more still, when he informed them that the head of the deceased was in a pot of tamales under the bed of her children as she had not fit in the sack. The had preserved in cold water to be retained and not dismiss a bad smell.

According to the history collected by the writers and by media of the time as the daily Press, by the occupation of the woman , there was speculation about the possibility that Mary had used the flesh of the body of her husband-to-cook tamales, but the version was never confirmed.

The first assumption of the police was that close relatives had helped to restrain the body with the axe and then put it in the sack and move it where it was abandoned, as some parts, like the torso, they were very heavy, but she was declared as the sole author of the crime.

On the 29th of July 1971, Mary was sentenced to 40 years in prison for manslaughter, a violation of the General Law on Burials and the Desecration of a Corpse. Finally ended up serving 20 years in Prison Women’s Tepexpan, Xochimilco, and Santa Martha Acatitla, in 1991, he was released. Four years later he died in Tequixquiac, State of Mexico, his native land, where he returned after serving his sentence. Their children are not returned to know nothing.

His case has been taken up by musicians and filmmakers: in 1993, the group of ska Victims of Dr. Brain, released the song “La tamalera”, in that it refers to the case of Mary.

“She was selling her husband to pieces. For misbehaving and not give for the expense. The tamalera, and I ate the sweet without concern. When something happened that caused me to horror: I ate a I the hand of a poor lord, and we were scared to the delegation,” noted the song in one of his stanzas.

A year later, director Juan López Moctezuma filmed the movie “the food of The fear”, based on the story. In 2008, a chapter of the tv series “Mujeres Asesinas” were also inspired in “the tamalera of the portals”.
