Thousands of Colombians took to the streets in the cities of Bogota, Cali and Medellin on Nov. 11 to protest a program teaching students that abortion is a right.
Colombia’s Constitutional Court, which legalized abortion in 2006, also ruled that schools must teach students that abortion is a right. Educational programs developed to implement the ruling also describe masturbation as “an alternative for sexual satisfaction.”
In Medellin over 1,000 people, including politicians, teachers, parents and entire families gathered to denounce the program for its promotion of contraceptives, sexual activity among adolescents, and abortion.
The protests included testimonies from pro-life leaders. Participants were also given the chance to sign an enormous banner to show their support for the cause of human life.
