.- Local media in Panama reported last week that the countryâs Ministry of Social Development is driving the creation of the so-called âInstitute for Women,â which will promote gender ideology, abortion and same-sex unions.
Last week, the National Assembly of Representatives approved a measure that would create the Institute. Social Development Minister Maria Roquebert Leon called it the âmost importantâ step for institutionalizing the rights of women.
The Institute will participate in projects aimed at maintaining society âfree of gender inequalities.â
Recently, pro-life and pro-family groups criticized the Ministry for Social Development for promoting the controversial âlaw on the comprehensive protection of childhood and adolescence, which attacks parental authority.â
