We would like to highlight two men who are real heroes for the unborn: Today we will highlight Elias Biscet, tomorrow we will feature Chen Guangcheng.

 

 

On November 5, 2007 the Presidential Medal of Freedom was awarded by President George Bush to pro-life activist, Dr. Elias Biscet. Elias Biscet is a doctor in Cuba who is presently serving 22 years in prison for his ‘anti-government views’.

The well known journalist, Jeff Jacoby, in a Boston Globe editorial, A Hero in Castro’s Gulag (11/4/07), describes one of the real reasons Biscet was thrown in prison:

“A prolife Christian physician, Biscet first ran afoul of the Castro regime in the 1990s, when he investigated Cuban abortion techniques – Cuba has by far the highest abortion rates in the Western Hemisphere – and revealed that numerous infants had been killed after being delivered alive.”

LifeNews.com elaborates:

“Biscet was arrested and served three years in a prison camp after publishing an article condemning abortion. After he was released, Biscet was again arrested and is serving 22 years in prison for ‘anti-government views’.”

He has been beaten and is living in a prison cell in Combinado del Este, a prison Jacoby describes as a “hellhole”.

Let us keep Dr. Biscet and his wife Elsa Morejon, who has also been persecuted by the Cuban government, in our prayers.
