Pro-family group in Panama offers alternative sex-ed formation

.- The organization “Alliance for Life and the Family” in Panama has sponsored a new bill that would counteract a controversial “sexual guide” that promotes sexual promiscuity and even bestiality. The group’s proposed measure would instead strengthen the institution of the family as a system of education.

The members of the organization attended a hearing of the congressional Committee on Education this week in order to promote the importance and viability of the proposed law.  Juan Francisco De La Guardia of the Panamanian Institute for Family Education, explained that the measure was first presented a few weeks ago by Representative Vladimir Herrera.  He said it would stipulate that the family participate in all decisions regarding the education of their children, especially in the area of sexuality.

“Currently there is a rough draft that would be used to establish sexuality guides that are not in agreement with our customs and principles,” De La Guardia explained.  He said the contents of these guides, which include material favorable to homosexual relations and even relations with animals, would be incapable of fulfilling the objective for which they were supposedly created, which is the prevention of unwanted pregnancies and of AIDS.”

“We think it is exactly the opposite, that they promote promiscuity, they destroy the authority of parents and confuse our children,” he stated.

The new measure would strengthen the role of the family as the primary educator of children and would establish the creation of a special commission on sexual education made up of parents and civil leaders.
