Despite an embargo, the text was nevertheless published on (dated: January 22). In the statement, Gomez points out "that our new President has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity, most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender.”
