Respond to inquiry into compulsory sex ed

The Education Select Committee of the House of Commons has launched an inquiry into personal, social and health education (PSHE) in schools. Sex and relationship education (SRE) is also covered in this topic. It is absolutely vital that there is an overwhelming response from parents, grandparents, teachers, clergy and all concerned citizens saying "no" to compulsory sex education. Please download SPUC's briefing to help you respond to this inquiry.

Brainwashing children about gay marriage condemned by SPUC Safe at School
SPUC Safe at School has condemned calls from Scottish health boards for parents to hand over their children's moral education to the state. See Telegraph 9 May: "NHS chiefs tell ministers: Change sex education lessons to make all pupils learn about gay marriage". Antonia Tully, national coordinator of Safe at School, said: "The NHS is demanding that parents hand over their children to state indoctrination. I believe that Scottish parents will be quick to see that this is about using innocent children as pawns to promote same-sex marriage. We will be organising meetings in Scotland to empower parents to protect their own children." [SPUC, 9 May]
Welcome for decision not to fund abortion of Northern Ireland babies
Pro-life campaigners in Northern Ireland have welcomed the decision by the High Court in  London to reject claims that women from the Province should be entitled to "free" NHS abortions in Britain.  Liam Gibson, the development officer for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children in Northern Ireland said: "While this result is what we  would have expected had it gone the other way it would not only have led to more children being killed but it would had serious implications for the rule of law and the value of Northern Ireland's devolved institutions.
