Guardian publishes SPUC's response to its 'exposé' of SPUC's schools talk

29 March 2012

The Guardian newspaper has published a letter by Anthony McCarthy, SPUC's education and publications manager, responding to its 'exposé' of SPUC's schools talk.

Mr McCarthy wrote: "Your report on our schools talk has an air of shock at the mention of any potential risks of abortion, whether physical or psychological (Revealed: what children are being told about abortion, 24 March).

"Where such risks either do or may exist, it is not surprising that many will deny them and/or seek to silence those who raise them ... Supporters of abortion may not like to hear such things, but do they have a right to stop schoolchildren hearing them?" [John Smeaton, 29 March]
