San Salvador, El Salvador, Nov 7, 2018 / 16:13 pm
Thousands participated Nov. 3 in the "Family is Life" march in San Salvador, calling on authorities to end efforts to legalize abortion and implement gender ideology in schools.
The march, which organizers estimated drew around 5,000 people belonging to 70 organizations, began at the Salvador del Mundo (Savior of the World) Plaza and ended up in downtown San Salvador.
Julia Regina de Cardenal, the president of the Yes to Life Foundation, said that many people in El Salvador are "calling for the right of parents as the first and irreplaceable educators of our children to be respected in face of the threat of gender ideology that is advancing in the programs of this government."
Speaking to ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish-language sister agency, she said that one of the threats being posed to strong families is the educational document "Comprehensive Sex Education," since "it encourages children, starting with preschool, to seek sexual pleasure individually or with another person."
