Heritage Community Services, in partnership with the Texas Department of State Health Services, presents Evidence-Based Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) Training

Texas Dept of State Health ServicesHeritage Community Services

By Christine Kalmbach

After an objective review by the US Department of Health and Human Services, the Sexual Risk Avoidance abstinence curriculum, Heritage Keepers, has been approved and found effective in delaying sexual initiation among youth. The curriculum is offered by Heritage Community Services located in Charleston, SC.

The rigorous program design involved 2,215 youth in 7-9th grades. Findings showed that those receiving the Heritage Keepers curriculum were significantly less likely to initiate sex than a comparison group at the 12 months follow-up.  The study reports,  “Sexual experience increased from 29.1% to 33.7% for the program participants, and from 29.2% to 43.2% among the comparison group.”

Information about Heritage Keepers Abstinence Education:

  • It is the only A-H consistent abstinence-until-marriage program recognized by the US HHS Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) on their list of the 31 proven-effective evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs.
  • It has been reviewed by US Office of Population Affairs, Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and approved for medical accuracy.
  • Additionally, in September 2013, the Medical Institute for Sexual Health also reviewed and approved the curriculum for medical accuracy.
  • In September 2013, the National Abstinence Education Association reviewed and approved the curriculum for meeting the federal Title V, Section 510 A-H requirements for abstinence education.
  • The curriculum has been reviewed and approved for being inclusive and non-stigmatizing towards LGBTQ youth.
  • The curriculum has been reviewed and approved for compliance with federal regulations prohibiting support of programs that promote religion or abortion.
  • The curriculum is compliant with the SC Comprehensive Health Education Act and compliant with SC Health Standards

Extensive behavioral studies indicate that a year after Heritage Keepers®, program students initiated sex at a rate 67% lower than well-matched non-program students. This particular study was of 2,215 students in 41 SC schools, and the population of the study was 63% African American. Strong program outcomes have been found across age, gender and race in rural, urban and suburban settings.

“It is important to understand what works in empowering youth to eliminate the risks of teen sexual activity. The National Abstinence Education Association (NAEA) is committed to promoting research that can inform this goal. We congratulate Heritage Community Services on their success in impacting the lives and sexual health of youth, “ stated Valerie Huber, Executive Director of  NAEA.

Targeting Children?

Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)

In recent years, sexual rights activists have shifted a great deal of their efforts to children and have made young people one of their main targets. A primary way they do this is by promoting comprehensive sexuality education as an international right mandated by law. This is because if they can raise up the next generation educated in their radical sexual ideologies and teach them to advocate for these as protected human rights in laws and policies in their communities, then they will have largely won the battle.

Comprehensive sexuality education comes in many forms and can be disguised as human rights education or life skills programs. Most comprehensive sexuality education programs contain a number of the following components:

    • Teach children to advocate for “sexual rights.”
    • Teach children various ways to obtain sexual pleasure.
    • Promote condoms to children without informing them of their failure rates.
    • Teach children to masturbate.
    • Encourage children to experiment sexually with individuals of their own sex or the opposite sex.
    • Promote anal or oral sex to children or teach them these behaviors are safe.
    • Promote promiscuity to children as a “right.”
    • Denigrate the religious and cultural values of their parents or community.
    • Provide sexual counseling, information or services to minors without parental consent.

Most, if not all, of the UN-promoted or UN-funded sexuality programs contain many of the program elements noted above. Click here for a special report exposing these UN-supported programs. You can also go to www.stopsexualizingchildren.org to learn more.

The Obama administration is at the forefront of the movement at the United Nations to establish “comprehensive sexuality education” for children as young as age ten as an “international human right,” and U.S. representatives at the UN consistently oppose any language advanced by pro-family countries that is intended to protect the rights of parents to guide the sexual education of their children.

In fact, during negotiations at the UN Commission on Population and Development in April 2012, U.S. representatives angered delegates from developing countries because the U.S. sponsored a resolution on maternal mortality, insisting on a provision calling for comprehensive sexuality education worldwide. The U.S. then refused to allow a reference recognizing the prior right of parents to guide the education of their children to be included in the resolution, relegating parents to merely having a role in helping guide their children’s education.

International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF)

One of the largest purveyors of comprehensive sexuality education programs in the world is International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). IPPF’s sexuality programs are designed to raise up the next generation to demand their “sexual rights.” For example, an excerpt from IPPF’s publication EXCLAIM!,1 distributed at the United Nations states, “young people . . . are entitled to sexual pleasure and how to experience different forms of sexual pleasure is important for their health.” This is what they are teaching to children as young as age 10. The EXCLAIM! publication also teaches children how to organize and advocate for their sexual rights.

IPPF’s It’s All One—Comprehensive Sexuality Education

It's All One CurriculumInternational Planned Parenthood’s “It’s All One” program was launched at a special invitation-only breakfast event in the cafeteria at UN headquarters in New York. This program is endorsed by the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) and was created by the Population Council.

“It’s All One” asks teachers to lead discussions on homosexuality, sexual diversity, how sexual minorities are treated in society, and how their rights are violated.

Even more concerning is the fact that “It’s All One” claims its priorities were established by: “the global health and education agencies, including the United Nations General Assembly, UNAIDS, the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and that it “respond[s] to international policy mandates including the Millennium Development Goals.” In other words, the “It’s All One” program claims it is what the UN has mandated that children should receive.

Here are some of the assignments and activities “It’s All One” suggests for children:

(WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT)

  • Preparing a short skit involving an intimate relationship—married, male–female unmarried, or same-sex couple
  • A worksheet on sexual desire that includes questions on erections, vaginal lubrication, sexual fantasies
  • Discussion on how sexual minorities are treated in society and how their rights are violated2
  • Real case studies and discussion on homosexuality with the objective of “empathiz[ing] with them”
  • Discussion on whether attitudes and ideas about sexual diversity in society are changing
  • A true/false test on sexual behavior that includes questions and answers on masturbation3, orgasm4, ejaculation, oral sex, sexually pleasing a partner5, penis size6
  • A case study on informed consent gives this example: “Isaac has had several partners but lets Ivan, his new boyfriend, believe that he is still a virgin, as Ivan is. When they have sex, Ivan agrees not to use a condom, thinking there is no risk of infection. Can Ivan give free and informed consent?”
  • An activity on making difficult decisions requires students to create a comic strip based on ideas from a list of suggested difficult decisions including: “You have decided to tell your partner that you are not experiencing pleasure (or orgasm) during sex.”

Planned Parenthood operates in most countries of the world and is making billions of dollars off of their sexual services for children and adults. In 2010 alone, IPPF received $3.5 million from multiple UN agencies including UNFPA, UNAIDS, UN Women, WHO and the World Bank.

Planned Parenthood brings teams of lawyers and youth to UN conferences to pressure governments to establish comprehensive sexuality education as an international human right in UN conference documents. They also manipulate governments of developing countries to call for comprehensive sexuality education or sexual education in their statements to the UN. They hide the more controversial aspects of CSE and claim that CSE programs will lift developing countries out of poverty and prevent teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases among other things.

International Guildlines on SexualityA number of the people representing developing countries in UN negotiations are actually paid employees of International Planned Parenthood who offer their services for free as technical experts, when in reality they get on government delegations to promote the sexual rights agenda of Planned Parenthood in UN negotiations. They are good at what they do, and this is bad news for the children of the world.

UNESCO’s “International Guidelines on Sexuality Education”

Created in collaboration with UNFPA, the UN Population Fund, the World Health Organization and UNICEF, the “International Guidelines on Sexuality Education” are completely in line with the philosophies of Planned Parenthood and other sexual rights organizations. In fact one of the main authors of the guidelines was from SIECUS, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States, the main purveyor of similar sexuality curricula in the U.S. (Click here to read Family Watch’s brief on the UNESCO Guidelines.)

Below are some excerpts from UNESCO’s Guidelines on Sexuality Education:

  • “respect” for “sexual and gender diversity”
  • “a man who becomes a woman and is attracted to other women would be identified as a lesbian”
  • “masturbation is not harmful”
  • “both men and women can give and receive sexual pleasure with a partner of the same or opposite sex“

UN General Assembly Report: Children Have a Right to Sexuality Education

In October 2010, the UN General Assembly received a radical report from the Special Rapporteur supposedly on “The Right to Education.” The report claims that there is now an international human right to “comprehensive sexual education” which includes a right to “pleasurable sexual experiences.” The report further claims that this “right” can only be realized “if [children] receive comprehensive sexual education from the outset of [their] schooling.” (Click here to read Family Watch’s brief on the Special Rapporteur’s report.)

In other words, according to this report, children as young as five or possibly even preschoolers must be taught about their right to sexual pleasure.

This report was created by UN Special Rapporteur, Vernor Munoz, who received a mandate from the UN to issue the report on “the right to education.” (A Special Rapporteur is supposed to be an unbiased “expert” appointed by the UN to study and report on an issue.) However, Mr. Munoz clearly exceeded his mandate and was promoting his own personal sexual rights agenda with his report and his unilateral attempt to establish a fictitious right to sexual education.

In the report, Munoz states that he “considers that pleasure in and enjoyment of sexuality . . . should be one of the goals of comprehensive sexual education, abolishing guilt feelings about eroticism that restrict sexuality to the mere reproductive function.”

With regard to HIV the report declares that “restricting sexual education to the issue of sexually transmitted diseases . . . may create an erroneous association between sexuality and disease, which is as harmful as associating it with sin.”

With regard to religion, the report warns that in some cases “sexual education has been obstructed in the name of religious ideas” and then adds “that comprehensive education acts as a guarantor of a democratic and pluralistic environment.”

The report also criticizes “barriers to sexual education, such as allowing parents to exempt their children from such education.”

So in other words, religion and parents should not interfere with the state’s obligation to sexualize children in order to guarantee this “democratic and “pluralistic” society.

The report discusses what helps young people “have better sexual lives,” as if improving the sexual lives of youth is a valid goal of governments, and it strangely states that the “goal of education for sexuality” is “to develop a transforming role for men by going beyond the strictly genital and physical aspect,” whatever that means.

The report cites to the UNESCO International Guidelines on Sexuality Education, which calls for respect for “diversity of sexual orientations and identities” and cites a UN Committee ruling that governments are “required to ensure that sexual education programmes did not reinforce stereotypes or perpetuate prejudices regarding sexual orientation.”

But worst of all, the report endorses the radical “Yogyakarta Principles,” which have been called the “Magna Charta” of the sexual rights movement, claiming that these Principles “have to be taken into account in education: because of its inclusion on the “diversity perspective.” Click here to read a brief on the Yogyakarta Principles and why they are so dangerous.

The report concludes by calling upon the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to “investigate specific problems relating to barriers and challenges to effective enjoyment of the right to comprehensive sexual education” and for the UN Human Rights Council to question Member States during their periodic reviews about how they are ensuring the “enjoyment of the right to comprehensive sexual education.”

Finally, the U.S. under the Obama administration has been leading the charge at the UN to promote comprehensive sexuality education for children as young as age ten.

While we condemn violence or harassment of anyone, we do not accept that individuals should be given special rights based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
  3. It’s All One Curriculum, Volume 2, page 68: “There is no problem with masturbating frequently. The only time masturbation can be considered a problem is if it gets in the way of other things the person should be doing or if the person is disturbing other people or otherwise causing harm to themselves.” And “Masturbation is one of the best ways to learn about and understand how one’s body responds to sexual stimulation. It can help women and girls learn how to reach orgasm.”
  4. It’s All One Curriculum, Volume 2, page 69: “Vaginal intercourse does not lead to orgasm for many women, regardless of how long the man continues; more often, women reach orgasm as the result of direct stimulation to the clitoris.”
  5. It’s All One Curriculum, Volume 2, page 68: “To minimize discomfort or pain, partners should take time to explore each other’s bodies and become fully aroused before penetration, so that the woman’s vagina is well lubricated.”
  6. It’s All One Curriculum, Volume 2, page 69: “A large penis does not give a woman more pleasure during intercourse. Although women differ, most women say that it is what the man does, not his size, that matters. In fact, a very large penis may be uncomfortable or even painful for a woman.”

President’s Budget Eliminates Sexual Risk Avoidance Programs

For Immediate Release
Wednesday, April 10, 2013


President’s Budget Eliminates Sexual Risk Avoidance Programs

Today, President Obama sent his proposed FY 2014 budget to Congress. In an unfortunate, but predictable move, the budget calls for the elimination of discretionary funding for Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) abstinence education. In addition, it also directs the US Department of Health and Human Services to repurpose a portion of the Congressionally-established Title V state block grant for abstinence education to yet another new program that focuses on contraception rather than on avoiding all risk.[i]  Using Title V funds for programs that are not compliant with the Congressional definition for abstinence education is a violation of congressional intent and therefore, outside the authority of this budgetary directive.

The FY 2014 budget will only increase the current 1:16 disparity between SRA abstinence education and so-called ‘comprehensive’’ sex education. Nearly 7 in 10 Democratic parents would like to see more equality in funding for abstinence education and almost 60% specifically oppose the president’s efforts to eliminate SRA funding.[ii] In addition, since nearly 75% of teens targeted for sex education classes (age 15-17) are not sexually active,[iii] one would expect federal sex education policy to reinforce these good decisions and encourage more teens to make the same healthy choices. Sadly, the President’s recent budget ignores these compelling facts in favor of making a wrong-headed policy statement that serves the narrow agenda of  special interest groups.

Valerie Huber, President/CEO of NAEA states: “The President’s move to eliminate Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) abstinence programs is completely out of touch with what his base wants, what parents want, and what is in the best interest of America’s youth.”

Research shows that students benefit from SRA programs, regardless of their sexual experience, or lack thereof.  Students in successful SRA programs are more likely to delay sex than their peers, and if they are sexually active, have fewer partners and are no less likely to use a condom.

Huber continues: “It’s troubling that the President would want to prevent students from receiving the encouragement and skills to avoid sexual risk.”

NAEA calls on Congress to ignore the President’s sex education policy recommendations and instead choose the common  sense position of supporting SRA programs and the positive results they are achieving among youth.

Parents Beware of It’s Your Game Sex Ed Curriculum

By Jennifer Fleck, Houston parent,
attorney and advocate for students

It’s Your Game (IYG) is a sex education curriculum implemented in at least 14 Texas school districts, mostly in the Houston area. IYG was developed by the University of
Texas Prevention Research Center with feedback and funding from Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. The affiliation is carefully documented and can be viewed at
http://www.sexednurschool.com. IYG is primarily implemented in the 7th and 8th grade, but is taught as early as 6th grade in a few districts. IYG reiterates in almost every lesson of
Level 1 that the student’s life is a game and that the student is the most important person in his/her game. It reminds me of Frank Peretti’s book, Piercing the Darkness,
in which the main character narrates the following: “I was taught I was the ultimate authority in my life, the final arbiter of all truth, the only decider of my values, and that no prior traditions, notions about God, or value systems had any authority over my will, my spirit, my behavior. ‘Maximum autonomy,’ they called it. Such ideas can be very inviting.
“…maximum autonomy wasn’t the great liberation and joy I thought it would be. I felt like a kid let loose to play in an indefinitely huge yard–I started to wish there was a fence
somewhere. At least then I would know where I was.”
Do you think Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond know where they are today? [The two Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players were recently convicted of raping an intoxicated 16-year old girl at a party and sending photos of the rape via social media.] The group has been described as just teens being teens, sleeping wherever with whomever — a present day example of a teenage culture of weak ethics in which these two teens and many of their friends admittedly were allowed the freedoms of young adults, yet lacked the maturity to handle that freedom. Social media accounts of the night expose an entire world that seems like a Hollywood script of a high school team out of control.
Unfortunately, I am not surprised and I am sure many of you aren’t either. IYG sets students up for failure, as would we all if we let teens make their own rules and made light of
serious life decisions. With comprehensive sex education curriculums like IYG that profess to teach life skills, goal setting and enrich the students’ lives, you can also expect to
see the following: games, casual sex scenarios, and cartoon videos, such as the “Condom Platoon.”  The developers of IYG attempt to be relevant, but the result is age-inappropriate, offensive, graphic, and demeaning. IYG removes all prohibitions by normalizing perverted sexual conversation, and, in effect, has students practice verbal foreplay.
The curriculum uses derogatory and offensive terms, such as “ho,” “slut,” “p— me off,” “lame,” “idiot,” and “Oh my God!” A “Truth or Dare” script performed by students states,
“They were making out and he started feeling on her, you know, ‘down there.’ And then she started to feel on him, too.” In one video, a boy and girl are making out on his bed and
he suggests they have sex. He does not have a condom, but tells the girl she can please him in other ways. Later in the lesson the students are asked about the consequences of
“oral sex.” She contracts Herpes from this sexual encounter; but, after they talk about it, “she loves and trusts him more, they are in a better place, and really care for each other.”
Three kinds of sex are explicitly defined and presented as equal. A video describes “anal” sex between partners; another demonstrates condom use. An online lesson shows graphic drawings of how to use a condom and then tells students to put the drawings in order from start to finish. The “Condom Platoon” video explains things that can go wrong with condom use and discusses condoms that are “ribbed,” “ultra sheer,” and “show-offs like the glow-in-the-dark.”
IYG undermines parents and the professional community with demeaning descriptions. Fathers are described as “flicking the remote control, snoring on the couch, and phasing out while mom shares her feelings.” Students are told that counselors provide “touchy feely self inquiry (with mandated psychobabble) that puts you in touch with your child within,” and pastors are seen “rapping with ‘The Man’.” It’s very comprehensive, if you think life and sex are a game. School boards are adopting IYG unanimously, mainly
because it’s being paid for with grant money derived from our tax dollars. Destruction for free.

WHAT YOU CAN DO: To learn more about It’s Your Game, visit http://www.sexednurschool.com or http://www.itsyourgame.org. Find out what your school district is teaching and get
involved with your district Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC). Contact your state representative and state senator to support SB 521 and HB 1057, which prohibits abortion
providers and their affiliates from providing sex education in public schools.

Planned Parenthood Redefines Abstinence for Kids Sex Education

March 29, 2013 10:25 AM EDT

2 people recommend this | comments: 34

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.

Planned Parenthoods Creepy and Violent CartoonPaul 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.
