I have just found out from the Blog "Medicina Cubana", that Dr. Biscet who has been in prison for 6 years for speaking out against abortion and human right violations in the Island prison of Cuba, has been nominated for the prestigious "Principe de Asturias Award", in Spain. I have been in tears!! This noble man is believed by many Cubans, I included, to be the perfect candidate for President of a free Cuba.
Prisoner of conscience, Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet a devout Christian who follows the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King and Gandhi has been serving an unjust 25 year prison term with courage and resignation, in his belief that his non violent opposition to the Cuban government is a just cause and his sacrifice is his way of fighting the injustices of the current communist regime.
Just imagine being sent to prison for decades for simply demanding respect to human life.
