Sex Ed and Learning Disabilities

Catholic Action UK report that FPA (formerly Family Planning Association) used Sexual Health Week to launch a campaign promoting explicit sex education among children with learning difficulties.

The CD-Rom produced by FPA apparently contains explicit depictions of sex and masturbation and, according to Audrey Simpson of FPA: "It's more explicit than mainstream sex-education."

This is yet another aspect of the FPA campaign to sexualise children at an earlier age because of the self evident failure of previous programmes to reduce either teen pregnancy or STD levels

Despite the failure of the current approach the FPA recently called for parents to lose the right to take their children out of sex education classes and wants compulsory lessons to start at the age of four.
