PopEd Study Pack: Preparing for the coming storms!


Subject: PopEd Study Pack: Preparing for the coming storms!

Hello all, and happy new schoolyear! This time of year also signals the beginning of the rainy season, but now it is punctuated by La Niña, and it is likely to be marked by floods and landslides!

As you probably know, this year has also been declared by the United Nations to be the International Year of Youth. Like all UN conferences since 1972, we can expect a year of intense propaganda for liberal adolescent sexuality, which will ultimately translate into revenues for the contraceptive and abortion industries, and the misdirection of the world's future citizens. The call of the moment is for Christian parents and educators to be vigilant over their niños and niñas.

1. As early as now, local RH advocates are busy aligning Noynoy's proposed sex education program with the forthcoming UN "World Conference on Youth" to take place in Tunisia next year. C-FAM reports that the UN will be holding a planning meeting in Mexico for this purpose and that it will be sponsored by the pro-abortion group " Catholics for (Free) Choice".

Noynoy has already expressed his RH focus, using the apparently inocuous term "responsible parenthood", and his intent to zero in on sex education for young people. These are valid storm signals, considering that his consultants and closest collaborators are affiliated with the international interest groups. Whether we like it or not, he is "apparently" our president-elect, and it is his administration that we will have to deal with in the next six years.

2. We suggest that we pro-family advocates all stay on the same page with regard to the unfolding sex education "dialogues" with the incoming administration. We can do this by reading the same encyclopedia articles on school-based sex education. So far, the best integrated reference is the "Pro-life Activist's Encyclopedia" (

We can assume a functional synonymity between "sex education", "population education", and "adolescent health" the latter two being the integration of the first into a country's educational and health programs.

So, here are the recommended fundamental references for the issue in question:



The Grotesque World of Today's Sex Education
3. You can also familiarize yourself with the philosophy and modus operandi of the leading players in global secular sex-ed dissemination. You will notice that secular sex education is now promoted as a component of FP/RH (read: global population control), which includes not just contraception, but abortion as well.
IPPF on young people, their sexuality and their rights
From 1983 onward, PopEd has been integrated -- through the UNESCO, under the pretext of helping and AIDS/teen pregnancy prevention -- into the educational curricula of UN member states. This is now embedded into the Millennium Development Goals of the UN.
With US, EU, and UN assistance, private NGOs have helped develop PopEd into a global institution with impressive packaging. Eg,

4. After these background readings, we shall also have to update ourselves with the ACTUAL pop-ed situationer on the national and local government levels. Note that what while DepEd calls sex ed "Population Education", the DOH calls it "Adolescent Health Dissemination". We should be able to answer the following questions:
  • How is PopEd integrated into the DepEd?
  • What are the current curricula and modules in force?
  • How are these integrated into the various subject areas?
  • How does the DepEd train schoolteachers to deliver the core concepts of RH?
  • What specific citations and excerpts prove the implementation of PopEd program?
  • What NGOs are actively promoting contraceptive use among young people?
These weblinks might be of help:
PEP ca.1982


Invoking your right of access to public documents, you should be able to obtain copies of PopEd curricula and modules from the DepEd office nearest you. Keep in mind that our Constitution's Bill of Rights reads:
Section 7. The right of the people to information on matters of public concern shall be recognized. Access to official records, and to documents and papers pertaining to official acts, transactions, or decisions, as well as to government research data used as basis for policy development, shall be afforded the citizen ...
5. The above readings and references give pro-lifers an overview of "what we are AGAINST". It is important to study these in order for us to be able to discuss issues intelligently. ( FYI, anti-life threats are discussed in general in Evangelium Vitae, 12-17. )

BUT we also need to learn "what we are FOR". The safest references would be Scripture and Church teachings.

At the height of the debacles on the Cairo & Beijing conferences, Pope John Paul II articulated the pro-life/family mission not just for Catholics, but for all people of good will: Build a civilization of life based on truth and love. He envisioned "that together we may offer this world of ours new signs of hope, and work to ensure that justice and solidarity will increase and that a new culture of human life will be affirmed, for the building of an authentic civilization of truth and love."

We must foster a culture of life. John Paul II articulated the pro-life mission in the closing prayer* of Evangelium Vitae.

By the way, if you will be using Church documents and/or Scripture as references for advocacy in public fora, please make sure to translate the religious terms into scientific and/or layman's language. It would be best to use language that even elementary students and media persons can understand.
( Click here for a Study Guide on EV; after this, there are other documents on the subject.)
6. It would be advantageous to assemble teams of parents and educators/schoolteachers who adhere to Christian principles and are capable of presenting the moral case with technical/professional competence. It would be best for such committees to be operate on national and local levels, even down to the barangays (or BECs).

Article 15 of the Constitution also acknowledges "the right of families or family associations to participate in the planning and implementation of policies and programs that affect them."

PTAs and other citizens groups can organize their own such teams and can register their stand on the RH/sex ed debate. The more associations weigh in, the better.

7. Attached herewith are an operational overview of Philippine depopulation (Flavier) and excerpts from the Philippine Constitution that are relevant to pro-life advocacy. You might find these helpful as outlines for group discussions.

8. This is only the beginning. Sayang naman kung ma-knockout tayo sa first days of school. Suggestions lang naman ito. If you know of other references pertaining to sex-ed/pop-ed, please do not hesitate to share these with others.
