Family group accuses Spain of promoting promiscuity through student health booklet

.- The president of the Spanish Forum on the Family, Benigno Blanco, has accused the government of “encouraging promiscuity” among students through a booklet titled “Staying Healthy in School.” The booklet was recently published by the Ministry of Education and Health and includes a chapter on sexual education.

Speaking to Europa Press, Blanco said the government “is deceiving young people with propaganda about condoms” and is encouraging "sexual promiscuity, which leads to an increase in pregnancies and abortions. It is a mistake from a health care perspective,” he added.

He added that the government is “violating the rights of parents to educate their children according to their own convictions” and is ignoring the fact that in society, “there are distinct moral and ideological understandings about sexuality, and (the government) has no right to impose or suggest any of them at schools.”

Sexual education is a right of parents, he concluded, and therefore must be free of interference by the government.
