Abortion propaganda aimed at schools

Parents should be vigilant: find out what is going on in your school!

From CFNews: Schools are being urged to show girls a film that teaches them that they have the right to choose an abortion. The film puts forward the idea that it's up to a woman if she wants to terminate her pregnancy.

Made by the family planning Association (FPA, Why abortion? shows a range of scenarios in which actresses justify abortion on the grounds that they cannot afford to have a child or that it could jeopardise their relationship with parents or boyfriends. Their choices are then debated in the film by teenagers from Northern Ireland -- when abortion remains illegal -- with a majority defending a woman's right to choose.

While the FPA is launching its DVD this week, with a handful of orders already received, the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children offers a pro-life presentation to every secondary school and the organisation Life gave 816 school talks during 2006-2007. A spokesman for SPUC said, 'I disagree with these things being shown in lessons. They give a very unbalanced view of abortion. They don't give any indication that it might create psychological difficulties, and a realistic alternative to abortion is not covered'.

England and Wales has the second highest termination rate in Europe, with 205,600 abortions carried out in 2007. Sex and relationships education is to become compulsory in primary schools in a drive to cut teenage pregnancies.

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
