.- Pro-life leaders in Paraguay are denouncing a new bill that would promote homosexuality and in some cases abortion. Under the guise of assisting minors who are victims of abuse and protecting so-called sexual autonomy, the bill is slated for debate next week. Nestar de Stark and Maria Celia Meyer of the Federation of Pro-life and Family Associations warned the bill seeks to define âsexual autonomyâ as âsexual choice,â in an attempt to make oneâs natural sexual state non-determinant.
âIt refers to a choice of gender, where oneâs natural sexual state is not a relevant fact. It states that one can define oneâs sexuality according to what one thinks and likes; this leads to very grave moral relativism,â Meyer said.
The bill also would establish that the âperspective of gender,â with all of its interpretations, be included in the training and educational programs for police officers, teachers, judges and others. âThey are seeking that this concept of gender perspective be introduced as a fundamental component and point of reference in the education of children, teenagers, young people and officials in general,â warned Stark.
The Association suggests that sexual autonomy be correctly defined that the necessary guarantees be established for defending the life of each person, so that abortion does not become just another âchoiceâ in oneâs sexuality.
