Sex Ed: more of the same on its way


From SPUC: SPUC has described aspects of the government's new schools strategy as "another ratcheting-up of the targeting of young people to be victims of the culture of death." Paul Tully, SPUC general secretary, said: "The Children's Plan promises a review of best practice in sex education. Every review since 1990 has led to calls for 'more of the same' policy - sex education and wider provision of sex facilities (abortion, contraception, sex advice) to children and teenagers. The government's reviewers and advisors are not only committed to the promotion of explicit sex
information and abortion services. Many of them are actually providers of such services - funded by the government - like Brook, and the abortion service BPAS." SPUC also accused Mr Ed Balls, the minister responsible, of presenting misleading data on teenage pregnancy, which has actually increased in recent years. [SPUC, 12 December] Mr Ed Balls MP, secretary of state for children, schools and families, published his department's Children's Plan yesterday.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
