Promotion of abortion to school children made compulsory in Northern Ireland

Precious Life has condemned the Westminster Government’s latest push to have more babies killed by abortion in Northern Ireland.

Today (Tues 6th June) Northern Ireland Secretary Chris Heaton-Harris laid new regulations in Parliament to force all post-primary schools in Northern Ireland to teach pupils about access to abortion and prevention of pregnancy.

Until now it has been a matter for individual schools to decide what to teach, based on their school ethos.

The Government’s new regulations will force schools in Northern Ireland to teach children that killing babies is a “legal right”; how to “access abortion”; and how to enjoy their “sexual rights”.

The changes have also been welcomed by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) in Northern Ireland. Natalie Whelehan from the charity called the new regulations to teach children how to kill babies as a "positive step".

Although the changes to the curriculum will come into effect from 1 July, the Department of Education must issue guidance to schools by 1 January 2024 on what they are required to teach.

NI Secretary Heaton-Harris said, “I look forward to working with the Department of Education…” to ensure the implementation of his forced regulations.

Not content with 4136 babies already killed in Northern Ireland, the Westminster Government want even more babies killed by promoting abortion to school children.

Precious Life’s 'Schools Outreach Teams' and 'Street Outreach Teams' will step up their awareness campaigns to give young people the truth - that abortion hurts women and kills babies.
