The Portugal Pro-Life (Portuguese: Portugal pro Vida, PPV) is a Portuguese minor right-wing political party, with an ideological foundation of pro-life, conservatism and Christian democracy. PPV is a newly established Portuguese political party, approved by the Constitutional Court on July 1, 2009, which defends the principles of the social doctrine of the Church.
Composed by people from all political persuasions, although mostly from the conservative right, the Portugal Pro-Life presents its programme of policy proposals around the unconditional defence of life, understanding the concept of life and the various principles inherent to it as advocates Catholic Church doctrine, and Roman Catholicism as a state religion. Its general manager, elected in January 2014, is Joana Câmara Pereira.
The PPV advocates the repeal of abortion law, of the recent amendments to the law of divorce found in Portugal, and to maintain prohibition of euthanasia, or the revision of standards on sex education in schools, allowing parents to have an active voice. During the debate on the legalization of civil same-sex marriage, the party maintained a position against, although few prominent and notorious, due to the general ignorance of the Portuguese in relation to this party. In the field of citizenship, the party advocates vow no age limit and the recognition of conscientious objection of taxpayers - the latter should be able to specify which use to give their taxes.
