SPUC welcomes morning after pill ban in Scottish schools

SPUC welcomes morning-after pill ban in Scottish schools Glasgow, 13 July 2003--The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has welcomed reports that the Scottish executive will reject moves to allow the abortifacient morning-after pill to be supplied in Scottish schools. SPUC Scotland director Ian Murray commented: "Scottish parents will be relieved by this news that their children's schools will be an abortion-free zone. However, we remain concerned that schoolchildren may still be offered, or even pressured into using, abortion-inducing birth control by so-called sexual health clinics and drop-in centres deliberately located near school premises. "We support the opposition of the concerned parents' group Not With My Child to the way so-called sexual health is being used by pro-abortion groups as a Trojan horse to sexualise children as young as 11. The increase in use of the morning-pill has gone hand-in-hand with a steeply rising trend of sexually-transmitted diseases, and pilot studies have reported no reduction in teenage pregnancies and registered abortions. "Parents who are concerned about abortion-inducing birth control being given without parental consent to children can contact SPUC's Child Protection Campaign".
