.- Archbishop Fernando Saenz Lacalle of San Salvador has called on the presidents of Latin America to include the issue of human values when they hold a discussion on a project about the rights of young people in late October.

The 18th Latin American Summit of Heads of State will take place in San Salvador October 29—31 and will focus on the issue of “Young People and Development.”

“It is very important that at the Latin American level there be agreement about policy, about the guidance being given to young people, and therefore this Summit is positive,” Archbishop Saenz Lacalle said. The leaders “should include in their discussions the defense of human values and concretely there should be a special reference to the family.”

In addressing plans for a “sexual and reproductive education” program, he said, the leaders “should opt for true education and not perversion, which could occur.”
