A blog launched on the 41st anniversary of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), the first pro-life organisation in the world, established on 11 January 1967. I wrote this blog in my role as SPUC's chief executive, commenting on pro-life news, reflecting on pro-life issues and promoting SPUC's work. I retired from my post on 31st August 2021 and will therefore be adding no further posts.

Explicit lessons in school are priming your children for sex, SPUC warns Worksop parents at public meeting
Antonia Tully of SPUC's Safe at School campaign gave a presentation on the widely-used sex education programme “Living and Growing”, published by Channel Four.
Mrs Tully showed horrified parents extracts from the DVDs in the programme, including an animation of sexual intercourse in two positions; a graphic child birth scene; and a section telling boys of 10-11 years old that masturbation is something everyone does and that it “does you no harm”.
Parents also saw clips which promote homosexuality, with footage of same-sex couples kissing.
Antonia explained to parents how this resource for primary schools effectively primes children for teenage sex.
Trevor Bean, Group Manager for the Education Improvement Service at Nottingham City Council, was present throughout the meeting and said that he would not want his children to see such material.
The Worksop Guardian, a local newspaper, was there and published a report.
