Dozens of activists from the 'Bocharim Bamishpacha' (Choosing Family) movement demonstrated Sunday afternoon at the Azrieli junction in Tel Aviv, protesting the legitimacy given to the LGBTQ phenomenon in Israeli society.

The activists carried signs which read: "There is only one kind of family," "Family = roots," "Family = continuity," and "Do not be quiet."

The demonstrators were met by counter-protesters from the Yesh Atid party who carried signs in support of the LGBTQ community which read : "Each man will live in his own family," and "This family is a family."

Michal Foa, one of the leaders and founders of Bocharim Mamishpacha, told Arutz Sheva: "Our statement is that we choose the family and define the family as father, mother and children, and this is something new in the Israeli discourse, They succeeded in disintegrating our concept of family, and now everything is defined as a family, including two fathers, two mothers, and single parents."

"All of these things are not right. Family is responsible for the continuity, tradition and loyalty between spouses and children. This discourse has disappeared in recent years. We are hearing about the right to parenthood of mothers and fathers who are not the real mothers and fathers and we are hearing less about the children who the parents have an obligation to raise.

"We are on a slippery slope in the trafficking of children, sperm, women," Foa warned. "The only alternative today for a boy or a girl with tendencies towards the same sex is to be LGBT, to turn the tendency into an identity. We say no, there is another alternative, to overcome, and it has to be heard. You have to hear the prices of buying sperm and renting a womb. These children grow up looking for their parents. You have to be aware of the price you are afraid to talk about. There are psychologists who are able to help those with a sexual orientation, but are afraid to help because they are being persecuted."
