Sex Education in Schools

Checking out the Catholic Action UK's site today, I see that SPUC are running a campaign:

Every parent with children at school... needs to find out, urgently, what is happening in the name of 'sex education', 'PHSE', 'SRE' etc. . Teachers usually don't want you to know but don't be fobbed off: you must see the materials they are using, and you may not be able to believe your eyes. You have a right to know, and a duty to protect your children.

They have an Open Letter to Concerned Parents, which starts:

Are your children safe at school?

We are asking this question because we are concerned about what is happening in classrooms during lessons on sex and relationships in both secondary and primary schools. We are concerned that abortifacient contraception and abortions are being aggressively promoted to teenagers in some secondary schools.

Read more HERE. And yes, in case you are wondering, I am the teacher named in the third section - it happened at a previous school I taught in. And now, according to Fr Ray Blake (St. Mary Magdalen's, Brighton) Edinburgh seems to be running a Contraception Service for children.
