Study shows Colombia’s youth reject abortion, drug laws

Bogotá, Colombia, Nov 30, 2012 / 04:03 pm (CNA).- A study revealed that the vast majority of young people in Colombia reject abortion, “gay marriage” and the legalization of drugs, as the country debates measures on all three issues.

The Nov. 23-25 analysis was carried out by the Ipsos Napoleon Franco firm and published by Semana magazine.  

Among 18-24 year-olds, 74 percent oppose abortion and the legalization of drugs, while 68 percent those aged 25-34 oppose both issues.

The study also showed that 58 percent of young people aged 18-24 do not agree with same-sex “marriage” and that 56 percent of those aged 25-34 also disagree with the practice.

A total of 1006 Colombians from thirteen different cities took part in the survey.
