SPUC warns against government's plans for sex education in all state schools

11 January 2010

The government's plans for sex education in all state schools would pour petrol on the fire of the sexual health crisis among young teenagers, warns SPUC.

SPUC was commenting after this evening's debate and vote in the House of Commons on the Children, Schools and Families bill. The bill was given a second reading by 287 votes to 206.

John Smeaton, SPUC director, commented: "The government defended tonight its plans to abolish parents' right to withdraw older teenagers from sex education classes. The government says that it's nonsensical that older teenagers can be told by their parents they can't have such classes.

"The government's defence shows that it doesn't trust parents to deliver the pro-abortion propaganda it wants teenagers to hear in such classes." [SPUC, 11 January]
