An organization campaigning for "respect and care for life from conception to natural death" is holding workshops for young Filipinos on identity, love and sexuality.

The Pro-Life Philippines Foundation is doing the rounds of schools for "Theology of the Body" talks that discuss Catholic Church teachings with young people as part of Pro-Life Month.

Rollie Delos Reyes, one of the speakers, said the influences of "pornography, sexualized imagery in the media and materialism make young Filipinos believe that sex is dirty."

Reyes said, however, that "God's design for human sexuality is spiritual communion."

At least 80 young people attended the first of the series on talks on Feb. 4.

It was described as a "crash course on Pope John Paul II's vision of the human person, love, marriage and sexuality."
