March for the family and for life in Ecuador. Hundreds of thousands of Ecuadorians say no to abortion and gender ideology.
(Quito) On July 28, the March for the Family took place in the Ecuadorian capital of Quito and other cities in the country with record participation.
In the city of Guayaquil alone, more than 200,000 people demonstrated against the killing of unborn children through abortion and gender ideology. Also this year the motto was "Hands off my children", supplemented by the motto "I educate my children myself".
It was mainly families who participated. That's why many children were seen. Families are particularly concerned about government-sponsored policies that are considered devastating.
The main criticisms are against Minister of Education Fander Falconi Benítez and Minister of Health Veronica Espinosa Serrano. The participants in the march for the family called on President Lenin Moreno to remove both ministers from office.
At the same time, the rally participants demanded a change of direction and a new policy for the family, which recognizes the role of the parents and does not try to incapacitate them by the state. Parents should therefore also be able to actively and decisively contribute to the creation of the guidelines for school sexual education.
