Hillary Clinton should not have been honoured by St Andrews University
The University of St. Andrews has awarded former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton an honorary doctorate for her (alleged) championing of "education, human rights, democracy, civil society and promoting opportunities for females around the world." [BBC, 13 September] However, Clinton is radically pro-abortion and works to promote abortion in the developing world. Abortion is contrary to human rights and opportunities for females, born and unborn. Hillary Clinton supports the killing of unborn children in the developing world. She should not have been awarded a doctorate by the University of St. Andrews. [John Smeaton, 13 September]

Local Authorities should tell primary schools: no more sex ed in science lessons, says Safe at School
Local Authorities should advise that primary schools will not be permitted to include sex education in Key Stage 1 and 2 science lessons under the new National Curriculum, said the Safe at School campaign, which supports parents facing unacceptable sex education in their child's school. Antonia Tully of SPUC's Safe at School campaign said: "Every parent should now feel confident that their primary-aged child will not be subjected to graphic information about sex in compulsory science lessons. Where local authorities advise schools of the requirements of the national curriculum, from 2014 they must stop advising both schools and parents that there is mandatory sex education in science lessons." [SPUC, 13 September]
