QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — A top Roman Catholic official said the country's draft constitution is incompatible with the faith because of its provisions on abortion and same-sex unions. A special assembly controlled by leftist President Rafael Correa's political movement recently approved the 444-article constitution, which will be put to a national referendum Sept. 28. More than 90 percent of Ecuador's nearly 14 million people are Catholic.

Archbishop Antonio Arregui Yarza of Guayaquil criticized the draft charter for including what he called ambiguous abortion laws and granting the same benefits to same-sex couples and married heterosexual couples.
