Texas Parents Unite to Protect Children
Ask legislators to keep abortion providers out of public schools
Parents are uniting across Texas to protect children from being targets of the abortion industry in public schools. They are calling on legislators to pass legislation that will keep abortion providers and their affiliates out of schools. At least one bill, Senate Bill 521 authored by Senators Donna Campbell, M.D., Ken Paxton, and Eddie Lucio, Jr. does that.
“The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, benefits from access to youth by being presented as experts and a source for information and health care, and at the same time profiting financially from abortion and birth control sales,” said Christine Kalmbach, a parent who founded Texas Parents Care (TPC). “Giving Planned Parenthood access to our children in schools allows the use of public education for marketing promiscuity and abortion and for recruiting teens for its programs,” she added.
“Planned Parenthood over-sexualizes children and normalizes risky sexual behavior,” said Jennifer Fleck, a Houston area parent who has extensively investigated sex-ed programs.
“Abortion providers like Planned Parenthood can’t possibly communicate the health standard in Texas law effectively because of its inherent conflict of interest,” said Renate Sims, a Round Rock parent of five children. We don’t hire the Marlboro man to give the “don’t smoke” speech during Red Ribbon week, and we don’t follow up a presentation on the effects of alcohol with a recipe on how to make a Margarita,” she added.
Texas Parents Care objects to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood in schools and the use of its materials because the organization facilitates sex with minors by providing them with condoms and birth control, helps them circumvent parental authority needed to get an abortion, and normalizes even young teen sexual activity.
The parents also object to Planned Parenthood’s sex ed material as inappropriate, degrading, and offensive because its prurient sex advice does the following:
- Encourages children to use “outercourse” as a method of birth control and as “safer sex.”
- Encourages using sex toys to “spice up sex play.”
- Does not uphold the standard of abstinence in Texas law, calling effective, true abstinence programs “fear- and shame-based.
- Promotes mutual masturbation, cybersex, and phone sex as “no risk safer sex play.”
- Promotes manual stimulation of one another, body-to-body rubbing, grinding, “dry humping,” oral and anal sex, and playing with sex toys as “low risk safer sex play.”
- Says safer sex is “a great way to explore who we are sexually, express our feelings, bond with others, and have a good time.”
Planned Parenthood’s websites and videos feature a condom fashion show, penis and vagina cupcakes, “Bobby Earth” in a condom costume, and teens singing and rolling on colored condoms on the floor.
Like minded parents are encouraged to join the efforts of Texas Parents Cares at texasparentscare.com, SB 521 and samples of sex-ed materials can also be viewed there.
