The Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child (Spuc) failed to hold a meeting in Birmingham on Friday of last week. 

The venue cancelled the meeting once it discovered who had organised it.

The anti-choice group called a meeting through its Safe at School organisation. 

It is trying to whip up a panic about an anti-bullying initiative called Chips. 

Chips aims to tackle homophobic bullying in primary schools.

According to Spuc this amounts to “priming children from the age of five to become sexually active”.

But Chips has nothing to do with teaching young children about sex.

It is aimed at creating an environment where children understand it is wrong to pick on other people because they are different.

It’s about making sure all children are treated equally and are looked after well.

Around 25 people came to the Birmingham meeting—and ten left straight away. 

Socialist Workers Party members leafleted people and argued against Spuc’s lies.

Spuc is more well-known for campaigning against abortion rights and a woman’s right to choose. 

Its “Safe at School” group shows its nasty agenda goes much further.
