.- The coordinator of  those expressing their conscientious objection to the Spanish government’s school course, Education for the Citizenry, Leonor Tamayo, said this week that the course’s content promotes “a purely hedonistic and irresponsible view of sexual and emotional relations.”
 
Echoing the concerns of the organization Professionals for Ethics, Tamayo pointed out that the multimedia information posted on the Ministry of Education’s website is directed towards teachers and students and “incites teens to engage in casual and underage sex, providing them with explanations about intercourse, including anal sex, oral sex and how to engage in it.”
 
He also criticized the content for teaching kids that they have the freedom to choose whatever sexual orientation they desire, whether that be “homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual.”  The website also teaches kids how to masturbate and the “legal means they can employ to procure an abortion and where this can be done,” Tamayo said.
 
The Ministry of Education’s multimedia presentation is being used as the basis for creating content for 10 to 16 year-old students, he added, thus promoting a purely hedonistic and irresponsible view of sexual and emotional relations.
 
Professionals for Ethics also rejected the inclusion of the course in primary education, saying it violates the rights of parents to choose the kind of formation their children receive.
