Catholic lawyers say new sex-ed law is no solution to problems facing young people

.- In response to the possible passage of a law that requires sex-ed to be taught in all schools in Argentina, the Corporation of Catholic Lawyers is warning that the secularized version of the program “will not solve any of the problems that young people and children are facing today” and that it “will only serve to aggravate” the situation.

The group explained that today’s world is characterized “by a growing increase in moral and judicial amnesia, especially among the younger generations,” and the new law proposed by Congress “is in direct conflict with the fundamental principle of subsidiarity in the field of education.”

“The law contains absurd provisions such as the obligation to impart sex-ed to three and four year-olds, with no regard to parents who are opposed,” the legal association said.

Pro-life groups also objected that the new norm does not protect “the right of parents to intervene in matters related to the education of their children.”  They also warned that linking sexual education with sexual health leads to a distorted vision of the human person, of sexuality and the family, as the euphemism of “reproductive health” is being used to promote contraception, sterilization and abortion.
