Just a request to anyone able to do so here in the UK to sign the petition HERE arranged by SPUC to lobby against abortion referral in schools. I understand this is a policy Mr Obama is in admiration of so if anyone in the US is interested in this issue it might be worth checking out this:
"Although people think that giving contraceptives to teenagers should stop them getting pregnant, this is not the case. Recent research found that areas which provided greater access to contraceptive services tended to had bigger increases in teenage pregnancies. Figures for 2007, the latest available, show the highest rate ever of under-18 abortions."
Statistics here show that throwing contraceptives at kids is only increasing irresponsible behaviour and casing a RISE in abortions and STIs. Why would you want to implement this failing policy
SPUC to hold national petition day against school abortion push
Preston, 3 July 2009 - Tomorrow (4 July), hundreds of pro-life campaigners throughout the UK will be seeking signatures from the general public and church-goers for SPUC's petition against the promotion of abortion in schools.
"The aim of the petition is stop schools being turned into abortion referral centres," said Tony Mullett, the national co-ordinator of the petition day. "Abortions are being arranged for children in schools behind their parents backs and one out of three secondary schools already has a school-based clinic where sex advice can be offered and abortions can be arranged without parents knowing. Successive governments have targeted young people with sex education telling them where to get contraception and abortion advice. But sexual diseases and abortions continue to increase among the young. The policy has failed, and now they are arranging secret abortions, destroying unborn children and leaving young teenage mothers to deal with the aftermath of abortion. It is profoundly evil."
SPUC's goal is to reverse the government's approach and end the promotion of secret abortions through schools.
