Chileans rejected an extreme leftist constitution by a margin of 2:1 in a national mandatory referendum that took place on Sunday.
The neo-marxist constitution attempted to accomplish all of the goals of the extreme left in one fell swoop: unlimited abortion, gender indoctrination in schools, redistribution of wealth in the name of “equity”, economic suicide via radical environmentalism and climate alarmism, centralization of power and a long list of identity politics.
According to Chile’s marxist millennial President, Gabriel Boric, the overwhelming rejection of his constitutional reform has not pushed him to take even one step back: “ni un paso atrás”. Instead, Boric has announced a new constitutional convention, has fired his cabinet and called a new cabinet to get a second bite at the apple.
Conservative politician Jose Antonio Kast, who lost the last presidential election less than a year ago, immediately criticized the new cabinet for the inclusion of the leftist mayor of Santiago who is currently facing corruption charges and other far-left politicians.
Chile currently permits abortion in the cases of rape, incest and the health of the mother – an exception which often swallows the rule and is abortion on demand by another name.
Still, abortion will not be considered a constitutional right, as the new constitution pretended. The proposed constitution would have subverted all regulatory limits and conscientious objection.
Pro-lifers now must work to make the pro-abortion constitution’s failure permanent by pushing the far left that has taken over Chile out of power as soon as possible.
