Libz Promotes Withdrawal Method

Published: Wed 12 Jul 2000 11:51 AM
"When I was at school," said a Libertarianz spokesman earlier today, "our rubbers were soft, spongy, and used to erase spelling mistakes.
Laila Harre wants to have tomorrow's schoolchildren issued with a different sort of rubber - in packs of three, individually wrapped and coated in spermicidal jelly. They symbolise this Labour-Alliance administration's determination to erase parental authority."
Backing calls by the Christian Heritage to keep condoms out of state schools, Richard McGrath said the issue of contraception should remain a private matter between parents and their children. "Libertarianz deplores this government's penetrative assault on the education system. We demand it utilise the withdrawal method - removing its loathsome influence from both our substandard schools and from the pockets of those forced to fund these juvenile detention centres."
