Cuban bishops troubled by proposed ‘Family Code’
September 13, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops of Cuba have encouraged their people to vote their consciences on a proposed Family Code, which will go into effect if approved in a September 25 vote.
The bishops observed that the new code, which would replace a 1975 law, has some positive elements, such as protection for the rights of grandparents and the elderly.
However the proposed code would introduce gender theory, allow for same-sex adoption, and support assisted reproduction—elements which, the bishops remarked, would “not benefit the Cuban family.”
