Rise in teenage abortions means government should scrap sex ed plans

The government should scrap its plans for compulsory sex and relationships education in primary schools in the light of the rise in teenage abortions. New Department of Health figures reveal a steep rise in the number of abortions among 14 and 15 year olds in the last two years.

The rise in teenage abortions is a direct result of the government's obsession with providing abortion to schoolgirls without parental knowledge or consent. The government is indulging its obsession by establishing sexual health clinics outside schools and by using school nurses and careers advisors to provide access to abortion. The government's latest move is to introduce children to an adult life of sexual activity and abortion by making sex and relationships education compulsory from the age of five. This is state-sponsored child abuse. It's vital that parents take a stand against government authorities whose policies lead to usurping parents' rightful role.
