Children

The exploitation and abuse of children, including abuse for profit, is one of the ugliest features of capitalist societies such as Britain.

We can have no higher goal than doing our best to ensure that every baby born into this world is wanted and will be cared for physically and emotionally throughout childhood and into adult life.

This is the responsibility of families (in the many forms that family life can take) and society, including schools and communities. We cannot legislate for love; however, education in the fullest sense (including sex education), full employment, decent housing and free health care would lay a proper foundation for the welfare of all children.
