Vatican Consultant Responds to 'Completely Ignorant' IPPF Accusation

LONDON, UK, February 9, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A legal consultant to the Vatican has sharply criticized a recent report by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) that takes aim at the Catholic Church's teaching on sexuality.

In a report entitled "Stand and Deliver," the international abortion giant attacks the influence of religious values on young peoples' attitude toward sexuality, saying such institutions "deny the pleasurable and positive aspects of sex" and block "information and services" about sex - presumably sex education, contraceptives, and abortion.

"Young people’s sexuality is still contentious for many religious institutions. Fundamentalist and other religious groups - the Catholic Church and madrasas (Islamic schools) for example - have imposed tremendous barriers that prevent young people, particularly, from obtaining information and services related to sex and reproduction," it states.
