Free RSE Resource: Abortion Care

The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) have launched a free resource for secondary schools on abortion care to support teachers with relationships and sex education (RSE) lessons.

The joint FSRH-RCOG factsheet aims to ensure that professionals involved in educating young people about pregnancy choices have a factually accurate, unbiased and evidence-based source of information about abortion care in the UK, one of the key points included in the DfE draft RSE guidance. It counters myths such as that abortion causes infertility, breast cancer and mental illness.

The FSRH-RCOG abortion leaflet is officially endorsed by PHE, Sex Education Forum and PSHE Association.

Attached is the fact sheet and an article in the Times which highlights the anti-choice misinformation in some RSE lessons which this factsheet aims to tackle.

Here too is a blog from Lucy Emmerson at SEF which spells out the relevant part of the RSE guidance and how the factsheet will help.
