Bishops say new Constitution of Ecuador should prohibit abortion and euthanasia

.- The Bishops’ Conference of Ecuador have called for the new Constitution to prohibit abortion, euthanasia and homosexual marriage, in the wake of Pope Benedict XVI’s call to “respect life” during his visit to Brazil.

In a statement the bishops’ conference proposed that the Constitutional Assembly incorporate clauses that prevent abortion and euthanasia.

According to the bishops, “The State and its laws should protect life from conception to natural death and should favor development and growth in health, security, education, and employment.”

Upon arrival in Brazil, Pope Benedict XVI called on the bishops attending the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council in Aparecida to work for “the respect for life from the moment of conception until natural death as an integral requirement of human nature.”
