EU Parliament Slams Croatia's Church-Backed Sex Education

April 25, 2007

In a letter sent to high-level Croatian officials on Tuesday, European Parliament deputies expressed "concern regarding the potential implementation' of a reproductive health and sexual curriculum" proposed by the GROZD Association of parents and backed by the Roman Catholic Church. The program "supplies medically inaccurate and incomplete information about sexual and reproductive health and family planning as well as about available and legal contraceptive methods," the letter stated. The curriculum has been approved by Croatia's education ministry and needs the health ministry's approval in order to be introduced in elementary and secondary schools later this year.
