Mexican Actor Eduardo Verastegui Vows to Build Largest Pro-Life Clinic in U.S.

The founder of Mantle of Guadalupe, Mexican producer and actor Eduardo Verastegui has announced ambitious plans – to build the largest pro-life clinic in the U.S. to be located in Los Angeles.

Verastegui made this announcement at the first-ever gala to benefit Mantle of Guadalupe, a pro-life medical center located in east L.A., strategically located a few miles from 10 abortion clinics. 

The Mantle was founded by Verstegui and thanks to friends like actor Sean Astin, Philip Rivers from the San Diego Chargers and others, it is free of charge to its mostly Hispanic patients providing pre-natal care, ultrasounds and natural family planning. 

Verastegui was born in Tamaulipas, Mexico and is a former member of the pop group Kairo and has appeared in countless telenovelas and movies like Chasing Papi and Bella, which won the People’s Choice award at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival. 

“I will not use my talents except to elevate my Christian, pro-life and Hispanic values,” Verastegui promised the guests.  As the gala concluded Verastegui introduced several Hispanic mothers whose babies were saved thanks to the work at Mantle.
