Not Just Alabama, Italians Are Fighting For Unborn Babies

Aleteia reports that pro-life causes are going mainstream in Italy.

Italian actor and comedian Andrea Roncato has built a reputation for being a playboy throughout his career. Now at the age 80, he has embraced a more reserved lifestyle.

On an Italian entertainment show Verissimo, Roncato revealed his prolife change of heart. The childless Italian actor told the show host:

I miss having a child. It was the mistake of my life. When I was very young, I had the chance to become a father, to have a child, but I had him aborted. Now, I’ve become very strongly against abortion. I even wrote a book for this child who was never born, titled I Would Have Liked You [‘T’avrei voluto’ in Italian].

During another interview, with Cristiani Today, Roncato admitted that he constantly asks God for forgiveness. Roncato has changed his views on abortion, and has come to appreciate the gift of life. During the Verissimo interview, he said:

I think that children are the only true wealth that a man can give the world. You can give good movies, beautiful poetry, money, whatever you want, but I believe that giving a child is the most beautiful thing a man can do.

Since Matteo Salvini became Interior Minister of Italy, the country has taken a rightward shift on various issues.

Instead of falling for the same fate that other EU countries have faced when it comes to mass migration, Salvini’s government has cracked down on illegal immigration.

On top of that, gun rights have also expanded under Salvini’s watch.

And with celebrity figures like Roncato accepting pro-life positions, Italy may be on the cusp of a right-wing renaissance on the issue of life.
