The true story of Silvia Aguilar Gonzalez, Mexico’s unknown pro-life ‘saint’
GUADALAJARA, August 9, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Five years have passed since Silvia Aguilar Gonzalez, a housekeeper from a small town in the Mexican state of Jalisco, passed away from brain cancer at the age of 37, abandoned by all of her immediate family, and completely destitute. It was the price she had paid, willingly and joyfully, for saving an unborn child from abortion.
For five years, I have kept Silvia’s story to myself, waiting for an opportunity for more interviews and documentation that I was never able to obtain after losing contact with witnesses. After so long a delay, I believe the time has come to tell her story based on the information I received from conversations with Silvia’s close friend, Maria Hernandez, as well as an in-law relative who was at her side as she died in 2008.
