The past eight years of ultra-conservative party rule in Poland have been evidence of the dominance of conservative values. A prime example of freedom restricting actions was the tightening of abortion laws, coupled with limited access to contraceptives and a lack of comprehensive sexual education. Any attempts to introduce such education were met with accusations of sexualizing children and promoting LGBTQ+ ideologies.
In Poland, independent organizations face challenges in organizing school classes and lack government funding for their activities while schools focus on conservative topics like natural fertility control, marital sex and sexual abstinence. This has led to a rise in depression and suicide rates among teenagers, who lack reliable knowledge about sexuality, struggle with body acceptance, and often lack parental support in navigating these difficult subjects. The "Art of SexEd" campaign is of paramount importance in a country that suppresses access to essential knowledge for young people.
