In Lithuania, the opposition is asking the authorities to exclude sex education from the new school curriculum; a corresponding bill has already been developed, reports Sputnik Lithuania.
According to MP Agne Širinskienė, sex education in the country can be integrated into moral education – lessons in ethics and religion.
“I think that the social conflict that has arisen now would be significantly reduced, because liberal parents would choose, as now, ethics lessons, and there the child would receive the basics of sex education, and parents who want to educate according to their beliefs, religious or otherwise, will choose religion,” she said.
The bill was signed by almost all opposition representatives in the Seimas, except for the Social Democrats.
Earlier in Lithuania they began collecting signatures for abandoning a new program that included sex education.
The agency recalls that a number of politicians and parents of schoolchildren accused the Ministry of Education of “spreading LGBT propaganda” during classes.
On September 17, about 1.5 thousand people protested in the center of Brussels demanding the abolition of the sex education program in schools.
