Planned Parenthood has been in the news recently for receiving $350 million dollars of federal funding for sexual education programs starting in Kindergarten. The program redefines abstinence as engaging in sexual activities that does not result in pregnancy.
Paul E. Rondeau from the Washington Times Communities writes that the abortion provider says that “abstinence…means choosing not to do any sexual activity that carries a risk for pregnancy or STD/HIV,” which is clearly stated in one of their sample lesson plans. The plan also includes an activity to teach kids how to avoid pregnancy. It advises the teacher “Explain that for purposes of this activity we will make believe that everyone in the class is having unprotected sex each month, although we know that most young people their age are not having sex.” This is just bizarre.
PP is not known for being a fan of abstinence (as it is defined for the rest of the world), as they state clearly on their website that “Abstinence-only programs often promote alarmist misinformation about sexual health and force-feed students religious ideology that condemns homosexuality, masturbation, abortion, and contraception. In doing so, they endanger students’ sexual health.” Planned Parenthood simply works around their hatred of teaching children to abstain from sex by redefining “abstinence” entirely.
The abortion provider has always had a disdain for teaching abstinence to children, as is illustrated in the video below, produced by a PP in San Francisco, which shows an evil man telling kids (around the 1:30 minute mark) “As I was saying, kids, the only way to avoid pregnancy is to practice abstinence.” He was destroyed by the “choice” superhero in this disturbing cartoon.
ObamaCare funding awarded to states mandates that states “educate adolescents and young adults on both abstinence and contraception for the prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.” Consider that “abstinence” does not necessarily mean “abstinence”.
Parents may want to pay attention to what their kids are being taught in school. Taxpayers may want to pay attention to where their hard-earned money is going.
