Publicizing negative effects of family planning education
Informing about sex education disadvantages
Of all the "reforms" achieved by the Family Planning Association and its network, the most insidious has surely been the removal of parental duties and responsibilities in regard to sex education and in regard to the provision of contraceptives to under age children. In many sex education books and programmes, homosexuality is included as another fact of life, as a normal and natural activity. Facts about the medically established link between early sexual intercourse or sex with multiple partners and cancer of the cervix are glossed over. So are the side effects of the Pill and abortion, whilst VD is presented as one more fact of life which can be easily treated provided medical attention is sought in the early stages. The sexual awareness being promoted sows confusion in the child's mind about the concept of "right and wrong" and presents only one moral absolute: the use of contraceptives every time you have sex. Lying darkly and deeply underneath the persuasive contraceptive propaganda fed to children is a sinister attitude towards birth and the misery of the "unwanted child" is stressed.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
