Students ‘abused’ with teaching on contraception

Teaching students about contraception encourages them to give in to the “culture of pleasure” and is tantamount to abuse, according to Gozo Bishop Mario Grech.
“The education system may be abusing students if instead of helping them to control their sexual energy it teaches them about contraception,” Mgr Grech said when addressing a conference in Gozo on the theology of the body.
When love is depicted as erotic love that abuses the human body, he added, true love is being abused.
“True love should lead a person to give and not possess,” Mgr Grech said, insisting that society was abusing human sexuality.
