Chilean young people march against distribution of morning after pill in schools

.- In response to the decision by the government of Chilean president Michelle Bachelet to distribute the morning after pill, free of charge and without a prescription, to teenagers above the age of 14, the country’s Youth For Life Association has organized a protest to take place this Friday in Santiago.

The march will begin at 11am in the Chilean capital, bringing together young people from public and private schools and universities to defend life from the moment of conception and demand that President Bachelet recognize the rights of parents to be involved in such issues.

Representatives of the association said they chose to organize the protest because, “faced with a government decision that is this serious and goes against the common good in Chile, those of us who want a better and more humane society cannot passively stand by and wait for our pastors to solve the problem.”
