João César das Neves is full professor at Universidade Católica Portuguesa (UCP).

My support for the One of Us initiative comes simply from unflinching a defense of human rights. The fact that the right to live and be born is being affected by the practical conveniences somebody else, even if that somebody are the parents of the future child, is an obvious violation of basic rights, parallel to many other that history has seen and the world continues to see. If we allow the life of somebody to be hostage of somebody else interest, the central principles of civilization are lost.
