Costa Rica: bishops denounce sex education, anti-life legislation

February 15, 2012

In a wide-ranging message following a recent meeting, the bishops of Costa Rica denounced legislation under consideration on abortion, in vitro fertilization, and homosexual unions as contrary to “the dignity of the human person, the nature of the family, and the values of Costa Rican society.”

The bishops also denounced instruction in “graphic sexual information … devoid of moral values, with a language and methods that do not respect the natural modesty of children or the authority of their parents.”

83% of the nation’s 4.6 million people are Catholic, according to Vatican statistics.
