BUENOS AIRES (ACI) - En una declaraci贸n a t铆tulo personal, el tambi茅n Arzobispo de Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz record贸 la participaci贸n de la Iglesia en el debate por la reforma del C贸digo Civil, la cual fue "clara y p煤blica en el marco establecido".

En ese sentido, reiter贸 las observaciones hechas por la CEA en el documento "Reflexiones y aportes sobre algunos temas vinculados a la reforma del C贸digo Civil", presentado el 27 de abril de 2012 de cara al proyecto original que tuvo 180 cambios, como la eliminaci贸n del vientre de alquiler y que se haya reforzado la prohibici贸n de la manipulaci贸n gen茅tica.

Sin embargo, "no podemos estar de acuerdo con la regulaci贸n incompleta que se propone de las t茅cnicas de procreaci贸n artificial, que podr铆a incluir, aunque se la haya suprimido, la 'fecundaci贸n post-mortem'".

"Tambi茅n la filiaci贸n fundada en la llamada 'voluntad procreacional', que privilegia los deseos de los adultos sobre los derechos del ni艅o, llegando a conculcar su derecho a identidad al quedar sujeta a la voluntad de los adultos. Todos los ni艅os tienen derecho a conocer a sus padres y en la medida de lo posible ser criados por ellos. El peligro es un C贸digo adultoc茅ntrico", advirti贸.

Mons. Arancedo tambi茅n indic贸 que es inconveniente favorecer las t茅cnicas de fecundaci贸n artificial "que debilitan notablemente el v铆nculo que surge de la filiaci贸n por adopci贸n. Si no obstante ello, dije en la bicameral, se decidiera llevar adelante la fecundaci贸n axtracorp贸rea, el ser humano concebido de esta manera tiene, como ya hemos dicho, el mismo estatuto, dignidad y derechos que cualquier otro".

"En el derecho comparado podemos ver que existen pa铆ses que han limitado los da艅os provocados por el usos de estas t茅cnicas, restringiendo el acceso a ellas los matrimonios formados por var贸n y mujer, y prohibiendo la crioconservaci贸n de embriones, entre otras restricciones. No todo lo que es t茅cnicamente posible y deseado en el manejo de la vida, es necesariamente 茅tico y respeta su dignidad", se艅al贸.

El Presidente de la CEA tambi茅n pidi贸 reforzar el matrimonio. "Pienso que el deseo de un divorcio Express ha llevado a debilitar una de las instituciones b谩sicas sobre la que se funda la familia. Un tema pendiente en este contexto ser铆a ver la posibilidad de reconocer civilmente formas de matrimonio estable, como el que la Iglesia propone a sus fieles", indic贸.

Tras se艅alar que la Iglesia ha actuado "con la honestidad y la responsabilidad del caso", Mons. Arancedo expres贸 su deseo de que los legisladores "tengan el tiempo necesario para llevar adelante y completar una tarea que s茅 que no es f谩cil, y a la que siempre estar茅 espiritualmente cerca para acompa艅ar su misi贸n al servicio de la comunidad, con la reflexi贸n que surge en la Iglesia desde una mirada de fe sobre el hombre, el mundo y la sociedad.
