.- The president of the Spanish Forum on the Family, Benigno Blanco, has accused the government of âencouraging promiscuityâ among students through a booklet titled âStaying Healthy in School.â 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 âis deceiving young people with propaganda about condomsâ and is encouraging "sexual promiscuity, which leads to an increase in pregnancies and abortions. It is a mistake from a health care perspective,â he added.
He added that the government is âviolating the rights of parents to educate their children according to their own convictionsâ and is ignoring the fact that in society, âthere are distinct moral and ideological understandings about sexuality, and (the government) has no right to impose or suggest any of them at schools.â
Sexual education is a right of parents, he concluded, and therefore must be free of interference by the government.
