Argentinean bishop calls for government credits to apply to unborn

.-

Bishop Jorge Lozano of Gualeguaychu, Argentina is calling the government to give financial “credits” to parents of unborn children as part of their Universal Child allowance program.

The bishop's words came during a celebration on Nov. 14 for the country's Day of the Sick.

In 2008, Argentina's government approved the program which allows some parents to receive an allowance for each child under the age of 18.

Parents receive an additional credit if the child has a disability.

Commenting on the theme of the Day of the Sick, “Healthy Children Are The Hope of the Country,” Bishop Lozano said, “Childhood is time in which the opportunities of the future for each child, and for the country, quietly build up.”

He added that society cannot “neglect the smallest and weakest of its members.”
