Teaching Abortion

Description

A look at how schools can provide factual and balanced information for students to make up their own minds about safe sex, pregnancy and abortion.

Sex and Relationship Education is to become compulsory in schools, and abortion education can be a key part of both PSHE and RE. But schools and teachers often feel anxious about teaching the subject.

Here, one school shows how pupils helped design the SRE curriculum, a sexual health centre shows how young people are advised about abortion in their communities, and Charles Edward Brooke School, London, shows how it is tackling abortion education head on.

With over 20,000 teenage girls terminating their pregnancies annually in the UK, this programme takes a timely look at abortion education.
