Argentine bishops call for public debate on family and education laws

.- The Bishops’ Conference of Argentina, which is gathered this week in general assembly, has published a statement calling for public debate on proposed laws related to the family and to sex-ed in schools.

Meeting in the city of Pilar, the bishops said that with the risk that certain measures, such as a new policy on sex-ed, might be approved before the end of the current legislative session, the nation needs to ask legislators “to submit the proposals to appropriate and ample debate, in an authentic democratic spirit.”  Special attention must be paid, the bishops continued, to the concerns of parents, teachers, and educational institutions that consider the proposals to be detrimental to the family and to education.
