Nicaraguan legislation seeks to legalize abortion, protect “sexual orientation”

    Matthew Cullinan Hoffman writing at LifeSiteNews: [The bill permits] the ‘interruption of pregnancy for any reason before 22 weeks of gestation, beginning from the first day of the last menstruation, and the product of conception has a weight less than 500 grams and a brain cavity height no more than 25 centimeters.’ In addition, the legislation establishes the right to ‘obtain sexual satisfaction according to one’s needs and preferences’ and requires that ‘sexual orientation discrimination’ be eliminated so that ‘the sexual rights of all people must be respected, protected, and exercised in their fullness,’ phrases that Miranda Sáenz warns will be used to create homosexual ‘marriage’ and adoption rights.”
