New Awareness campaign against Compulsory RSE launched in Ireland
A new Awareness Campaign "Hands off our Kids" has been launched in Ireland to make parents and teachers aware of radical new changes to the way Relationship and Sexuality Education is taught in Irish Schools .
Over the past year the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) has conducted a review of the type of sex education taught in schools . The review followed the publication of a new Bill "The Provision of objective sex education bill 2018" which aims to make it compulsory for all schools regardless of ethos to teach lessons around gender identity , transgenderism , abortion , contraception and sexual activity to children from Junior infants upwards .
In July , the NCCA published its draft findings which were in line with those proposed in the Bill . One Research Paper commissioned by the NCCA as part of its review process made reference to a World Health Organisation Report entitled "Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe: A framework for policy makers" which says that infants from the ages of 0-4 be given information about "enjoyment and pleasure when touching one’s body, early childhood masturbation" among other things such as "tenderness and physical closeness" and "discovery of own body and genitals" .
Hands off our kids say the new NCCA syllabus will be about ideology , not biology .
The new syllabus will be about ideology, not biology - and it will be compulsory , it will sexualise children from a very young age by exposing them to adult sexual practices, heterosexual and homosexual.It will cause gender confusion and long-term psychological harm for many children by teaching them that they can ‘choose’ their gender. Biology will be replaced by ideology. It will present abortion as a normal form of birth control.It will ignore parents’ constitutional rights as the primary educators of their children.
The Campaign which consists of concerned parents and teachers have launched a website and resource packs for "local people around the country to raise awareness in their own local community".
Their website can be viewed here: https://www.handsoffourkids.org/ and the Resource Packs are available to download here : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uky8n014v1oo3dw/AAB8R4AB2m6hMEtvg51fliTUa?dl=0
