Parents Force School District to Halt Planned Parenthood Sex Ed Program

[I’m surprised the parents won – for now. Too bad our bishops force SIECUS/PP sex indoctrination on Catholic children. The only difference is that bishops never listen to parents.]

The complaints of hundreds of parents of middle schoolers in North Carolina’s Cumberland County have forced the school district to suspend a sex education program designed by Planned Parenthood.

“I don’t need somebody else teaching my kids, as they put it in there, ‘the myths and facts about your sexuality.’ That’s something the parents need to do,” parent Nick Quello said, reports WRAL. “I just don’t think that’s appropriate for a 12-year-old, whether it be a boy or a girl, to be teaching them that.”

Parents reportedly packed a meeting Monday evening to review Planned Parenthood’s Get Real sex ed program. Concerns about the curriculum included its focus on sexual preference and demonstrations of condom use and that the program is the product of scandal-ridden Planned Parenthood.

The nation’s largest abortion provider faces possible elimination of much of its taxpayer funds following years of scandals, including Medicaid fraud, allegations of child sex abuse cover-up, and, most recently, alleged profiteering from the sale of body parts of babies aborted in its clinics.

Get Real is a Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) program that assumes all young people will be sexually active. In addition to teaching children about contraception, the program focuses on LGBTQ issues and terminology. The program was developed by Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts (PPLM) and published by ETR.

In Grade 6, the Get Real curriculum says it introduces students to the “key Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills” they will supposedly need to be able to discuss sexual relationships and how to avoid pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

According to the program’s table of contents, in Grade 7, students also discuss sexual identity and “examine the myths and facts about sexual orientation.” They also learn how to use a condom and review the use of hormonal contraception, including emergency contraception after sexual intercourse.

Ryan Bomberger, president of the Radiance Foundation, a pro-life educational group, writes at Townhall that Planned Parenthood should not be invited into public schools:

Our nation is facing an STD epidemic. The 18 percent failure rate of condoms is alarming. Birth control pills, shots, implants, rings, and IUDs don’t prevent STDs at all. Abstinence is the only 100 percent effective way to avoid STDs, HIV, HPV and unintended pregnancy.

Should a business that profits from selling abortions, birth control and STD treatments be teaching our teens that there’s nothing wrong with promiscuity?

“PPFA (Planned Parenthood Federation of America) perpetuates the need for their ‘services,’” writes Bomberger. “They target our young, and public schools are more than willing to expose students to the medical malfeasance. Our teens deserve much better protection than this.”

  1. With “help” from the Vatican, Their Excellencies can now do a “bait and switch” routine by replacing any SIECUS/PP sex ed program with the Pontifical Council for the Family’s new Meeting Point: Course of Affective Sexual Education for Young People, in which the 6th and 9th commandments are ignored while sexually explicit images and immoral videos are used as springboards for discussion.
