 Christian counselling centre no longer permitted to teach sex ed in Edmonton

EDMONTON - A Christian-based counselling service for pregnant women will no longer be allowed to help teach sexual education classes this fall, the superintendent of Edmonton Public Schools ordered Friday.

The Pregnancy Care Centre has been giving presentations on sexual abstinence to classes at numerous public schools for almost a decade.

The controversy boiled up this week after it was revealed the Alberta Human Rights Commission had accepted a complaint by Edmonton teenager Emily Dawson and her mother, both of whom objected to the instruction provided by a Pregnancy Care Centre worker last summer.

Dawson has alleged that the presenter, who spoke to her mandatory Career and Life Management (CALM) course, ridiculed single-parent families like hers and shut down questions about same-sex relationships.

The Dawsons’ human rights complaint alleges they suffered discrimination because they are agnostics and live in a single-parent home.
