Petition against anti-life sex ed closes 25 March, please sign and promote today

I'm advised that the excellent petition, "Against Government-led Sex Education in Catholic Schools", will close for signatures on 25 March, the feast of the Annunciation (pictured). If you are a resident of England and Wales, please sign it (if you haven't done so already) and urge other residents of England and Wales to sign it. It's addressed to the Catholic bishops of England and Wales and says:
We, the undersigned, call upon the Bishops of England and Wales and the Catholic Education Service to fulfil their duty as guardians of our Catholic Faith and unequivocally reject recent Government measures forcing Catholic schools to teach what is explicitly condemned by the Church, viz: presenting active homosexuality as an acceptable alternative lifestyle, and providing information on the nature - and provision - of contraception and abortion services. Compliance on the part of the Bishops and the CES in such measures would effectively render our schools no longer Catholic in any meaningful sense, and would place the faith and moral life of our children in jeopardy. As Catholic parents, teachers and pastors, we earnestly beg of you, our Shepherds in Christ, that you do not allow this to happen.
