.- During a press conference on Monday, the Panamanian Alliance for Life and the Family, a large coalition of organizations and important leaders in Panama, expressed its rejection of both the anti-family and anti-life laws being proposed in the country. The coalition also criticized the Summit on Youth that President Martin Torrijos will attend at the end of the month.

“We are profoundly concerned about the actions that the government has insistently tried to impose on Congress which tend towards the ideological manipulation of our children and that would do irreparable harm to our rights as parents,” the Alliance stated.

It pointed to efforts to legalize abortion, reduce the authority of parents, implement harmful sexual education programs and pass new laws on sexual and reproductive health as only some of the measures that have constituted an attack on the family in the Central American country.

“We wish to announce that we will continue doing everything within our power to prevent this perverse ideology from destroying our families.  Mr. President Martin Torrijos: Do not sign for our country at the 18th Summit of Heads of State and of Government…Do not surrender our future generations!” the Alliance stated.
