    Since election of Socialists Spain has become a leading anti-family EU country

    By Elizabeth O'Brien

    Calling for Spanish policy makers to commit to providing greater support for families, the Institute for Family Policy (IFP) reported an alarming trend than one in four homes will be single-parent by 2011, Catholic News Agency (CNA) reports.

    Mariano Martinez-Aedo, Vice President of the IFP, pointed out that recent trends in Spanish families have caused increased "fragmentation" that has weakened the structure of society. He said, "The tendencies that show the evolution of homes in Spain reveal serious deficiencies in our future, as they are provoking a society that is more and more individualistic, where social fragmentation is isolating the person and makes the social fabric very fragile."

    The Vice President also criticized social policy for abandoning proper family values and failing in its purpose. He said, "This evolution is a result not only of cultural, economic and social changes, but also of a profound abandonment in family and social policy, which is not fulfilling its objectives."

    He concluded, "A vigorous social and political reaction is necessary that adopts important and lasting measures that truly support Spanish families to fulfill their role."
