Congressmen in Costa Rica reminded of their duty to protect fundamental values

.- The Catholic Action Archdiocesan Forum in Costa Rica has reminded the country’s lawmakers of their duty to protect the fundamental values of life and marriage when passing laws.

According to the Fides news agency, the CAAF sent a letter to lawmakers reminding them that Costa Rica was founded on Christian values and therefore it is their duty to promulgate laws based on this perspective, “especially with respect to the laws that right now are on the agenda in relation to the family and life.”

The letter also stressed the importance of marriage between one man and one woman as the manner of passing on values and therefore they said laws to the contrary should not be passed, so that marriage will continue being “the foundation of Costa Rican society.”

Regarding the fundamental right to life, the letter warned that “in recent years a culture in favor of death and license has become evident in society in which each person is free to do with his body what he or she wants,” jeopardizing the life of the unborn, despite the protections offered by the Costa Rican constitution.
