Panama could pass a sex education law that violate parent rights: "Panama could pass a sex education law that violate parent rights
Panama, Oct 7, 2008 / 01:21 pm (CNA).- The Church in Panama and several pro-family movements claim that pressure continues to remain in the country to pass a law of 'sexual and reproductive health.' The bill, endorsed by the government, reportedly violates the right of parents to educate their children according to their moral convictions.
In a recent statement, the Catholics Bishops Conference of Panama said that this project does not consider the ethical dimension of sexuality focused on values and moral virtues, which reveals the dignity of human beings as a whole.
According to the bishops, this bill ignores 'love' as a component of human sexuality; the complementarity of men and women; and it diminishes the family's role as the primary educator of children, ignoring the parents' work in the delicate matters of sexual and reproductive health of their children."
