Ethics group denounces Spanish political party for hypocrisy on sex-ed

.- The organization, Professionals for Ethics, denounced the hypocrisy of the Spanish political party, “Partido Popular,” for criticizing the country's new law on abortion while at the same time allowing gender ideology to be taught in schools in the province of Valencia.

Fabian Fernandez de Alarcon, who represents Professionals for Ethics, said the political party has challenged the constitutionality of the new law on abortion but at the same time has introduced the very model of sexual education it is criticizing.

Fernandez de Alarcon said the sex-ed program put in place in Valencia is a combination of workshops presented by health care workers for children in junior high.

The objectives of the workshops include changing students’ understanding of sexuality, teaching them to recognize “the diversity of sexual preferences as a principle” and training them on the use of contraceptives, he added.

The program is similar to the methodology used by Education for the Citizenry in that it encourages students to question the values they have been taught by their parents.  Fernandez de Alarcon said parents’ groups are considering mounting legal challenges to the workshops.

What is occurring in Valencia shows that parents “cannot blindly trust in the schools, especially regarding issues that have moral implications such as sexual education, he said.
