.- The president of the organization Professionals for Ethics, Jaime Urcelay, has criticized Spainâs new law on abortion which has now taken effect, saying it legitimizes the death of the most innocentâthe unbornâand forces ideological-driven sexual education on schools.
âThe first to be affected is the child whose life will be taken. But in addition, many women feel compelled either directly or indirectly to have an abortion for economic or professional reasons or out of pressure from family members or society,â he said.
Urcelay also warned that the new law attacks the right of health care workers to exercise conscientious objection and could force them to perform abortions. âEverything indicates that a registry of doctors who object to abortion, a sort of âblack list,â will be compiled, which in reality is threat to those who object,â he said.
In response to a section in the law that deals with sexual education and addresses the supposed âright to abortionâ and âsexual diversity,â Urcelay called it âa new form of school indoctrination that parents must not allow because it violates our right to educate our children."
"For this reason," he declared, "as soon as we learn how this sexual education will concretely be implemented in schools, we will respond with all of the legal means at our disposal.â
