Twenty-three-year-old María del Valle González López was a beautiful, brown-eyed student with a lovely smile and a passion for life. She was also the leader of the abortion group Radical Youth in La Paz, Mendoza, Argentina and fought on the front lines of her country’s recent battle to legalize abortion.
According to LifeSiteNews, she was also president of “the pro-abortion ‘Union Civica Radical,’ a historic Argentinian left-wing party associated with the Socialist International.” She was studying Social Work at the University of Cuyo when she went to the Arturo Illia hospital to procure an abortion.
According to Spanish news reports in the Argentine newspaper Clarín, the pregnant youth leader—who has a boyfriend—went to the hospital on April 11. “There, she was prescribed a medication—presumably misoprostol—and on Friday she began to feel ill,” Clarín reported.
