.- The Institute for Family Policy issued a statement this past weekend denouncing the government of the Spanish region of Catalonia for continuing “its policy of marginalization and discrimination against the family.”

The president of the IFP in Catalonia, Liberto Senderos, said the actions of the government during the first 100 days of the current legislative session have revealed a clear decision to oppose the family.

Senderos criticized the restructuring of governmental departments, noting that a department dedicated to the family has not been created, and that the Department of Wellbeing and the Family has been replaced by the Department of Social Action and Citizenship.  This Department, he said, includes a section dedicated to the promotion of the gay, lesbian, and transsexual agenda.

Senderos said this was evidence of the government’s lack of interest in the family and that instead of working to support the family, it has brought forth a bill against the supposed discrimination of minorities, which could mean a loss of rights for those who do not share the opinions of certain lobby groups.
 
The IFP also denounced the government’s educational policy, which is preventing parents from freely choosing the school to which they wish to send their children and which would reduce the grants available for large families or families with children suffering from certain illnesses.”

In addition, the organization denounced the government’s sexual education program, “which is directed at minors under the age of 15 and which, without taking into consideration the opinions of their families, continues to offer the same tired and failed solutions that have proven ineffective up to now.”
 
The IPF also noted that Catalonia continues to have no program in support of women with troubled pregnancies and that the only financial assistance given them is for abortion.

The government has also failed to provide adequate housing to families in the region, it said.
