.- Several pro-life groups in Mexico are hosting the IV Life and Family Congress on April 24-25 in Mexico City, on the theme, “Controversies and challenges for the family.”

According to the conference coordinator, Ana Ochoa, Bishop Jose Guerrero of Mexicali will participate in the opening of the event.  The first talk will be called “The New Human Rights” and will be given by Jorge Scala, an Argentinean lawyer and legal advisor to the Latin American Council for Life and the Family.  His presentation will explain how “new ideologies seek to impose a radical vision concerning morality and human rights.”

Other subjects to be addressed during the event include “Drugs in the New Millennium” and “Pornography and the electronic media,” which will be given by Mark Kastleman, founder and president of the Life Dynamic Institute in Salt Lake City, who will explain in scientific terms “how pornography and sexually explicit material in movies, on television and the internet create an addiction in the human brain similar to that caused by drug abuse.”

Dale O-Leary, researcher and member of the National Association for Research & Therapy on Homosexuality, will deliver a talk on “Homosexuality: myths and realities” and “Marriage and adoption in the new public policy.”

On Sunday, April 25, medical surgeon Carlos Yeomans will talk on “The myth of ‘safe sex’,” providing a scientific explanation of “how the deceitful marketing of the condom as ‘an effective contraceptive method’ is criminal and exposes people to AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.”

Lastly, Paola Scarinci of Del Bosco will address the subjects of “The new ideologies: Where are they seeking to take us?” and “Controversies and challenges for the Family,” and Osiris Reyes will talk about the “CEDAW: the new world order.”
