SPUC: new 'Safe at School' leaflet

Action: please promote these.

From CFNews: A new leaflet has been developed to encourage parents to get to grips with what is happening in their children's schools. This is part of SPUC's campaign to raise awareness about what is happening in schools and to identify those people who will take action and start working for change within their own child's school.

The leaflet lists 17 questions to put to the school authorities - and provides a help-line on the issues the leaflet raises. Questions include: 'Are you aware of your child filling out questionnaires at school with leading questions on their knowledge of sexual matters and local availability of the morning-after pill?. . .Are you aware of websites advertising abortion facilitate and confidential advice which may be promoted at your child's school often on plastic cards which may also offer help on careers advice?. . .Are you aware that school governors have to consult with parents over sex education and that they have the power to veto anything they feel is detrimental to the child? . .'

The Safe at School campaign, run by the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, is raising awareness about the ways in which children and young people at school are exposed to anti-life classroom materials and agencies through which they can get abortion referrals, abortion-inducing contraception and the morning-after pill. This includes faith schools (including Catholic schools).

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
