World Forum on Ethics highlights practice of ethics in public life

.- Organizers of the World Forum on Ethics, which was held in several different Mexican cities during the month of January, have published the final conclusions of the event in which they emphasize the validity of ethics as the fundamental norm of conduct in public life at the national and global levels.

The president of the Institute on Family Policy in Spain, Eduardo Hertfelder, told the Fides news agency that the meeting “marked an awakening of an unprecedented global social movement of people and organizations which have the human person and human dignity as the center of their objectives.”

In their conclusions the Forum underscored that “any law or public policy which threatens human right or is essentially contrary to universal ethic principles has no legitimacy even if approved with a democratic vote and legal formalities.”

The Forum also stressed the need for family policies to protect human life from the moment of conception, promote laws to support marriage between a man and a woman, and oppose adoption on the part of same sex couples.
