Comprehensive Sex Education

          Those who are pushing for sex education in our public schools should be aware of the types of sex education practiced in countries like the United States because some of our educators, wittingly or unwittingly, are emulating models from the West.  Fortunately, a recent book on the Theology of the Body written by former Bishop of Legazpi Jose Sorro compiled a detailed account of sex education in the U.S.  He made an expose of what is known as comprehensive sex education which teaches children not only about the biological facts of sex, but also about birth control, contraception, abortion, masturbation, homosexual behavior and other moral evils.  The proponents of this approach to sex education claim that whatever they teach is "value free," and, therefore, allegedly free of biases and prejudices.

       The historical trends, empirical findings, and policy updates are discussed in detail in the essays compiled in this book. The most convincing argument that supports the thesis of the book, i.e. that population growth is a poitive factor in attaining sustainable human development, is found in the foreword to the book, which is adopted from an article written by Mr. Roberto de Ocampo, former Finance Secretary of the Philippines and multi-awarded finance official in Asia. Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
