Tens of thousands of Hondurans marched in several cities July 22 calling on President Xiomara Castro not to not sign the Comprehensive Education Law for the Prevention of Teen Pregnancy because it includes gender ideology.
The parents’ movement “For our children” organized the march and on Facebook invited citizens to take to the streets to demonstrate “against gender ideology.”
“The Comprehensive Education and Prevention of Teen Pregnancy Law should be vetoed; we want an education focused on the family,” the organization urged, calling for “an education without ideology, without indoctrination. An education that forms citizens to build a better country.”
The law was passed in March by the Honduran Congress and is awaiting Castro’s signature or veto. The measure was passed 59-32 with 16 legislators not voting and six abstaining.
