'Bella' Star to Build Huge Pro-Life Clinic

Eduardo Verastegui pledges to build largest pro-life women's clinic in U.S.


Mexican actor Eduardo Verastegui, who co-starred in the beautiful pro-life film Bella, recently announced that his organization, Mantle of Guadalupe, is planning to build the largest pro-life women's clinic in the United States.

“I will not use my talents except to elevate my Christian, pro-life and Hispanic values,” Verastegui said at an event where he made the announcement. "We are compelled to step up our efforts and will power of the soul to help the unfortunate, the sick and the poor, strengthen family ties, practice charity and live with integrity. This all will make Christ enter our heart, allowing him to become part of our soul."

Verastegui is active in the pro-life movement, often standing in front of abortion clinics to try to talk to pregnant women, offering life-affirming solutions to their situation. At the recent event, Verastegui introduced guests to some of the babies saved from abortion thanks to his organization's work.
