Parents: Making a Real Difference!

Making a Differnce

A mother in Mt. Pleasant, SC (Charleston) took the time and effort to read the Making a Difference! sex education curriculum that her child was to receive in middle school. She wrote a very compelling letter to the editor which can be found here:

This mother says that no other reproductive health option was made available. Really?

Making A Difference! does not teach Reproductive Health Education as required by Law.

[If the school district wants a program that completely fulfills the SC Law for middle schools, the Heritage Community Services program, Heritage Keepers, has been approved for at least a decade by Charleston County School District for all middle schools and provides all except contraception for high schools. It is up to the Principal to request Heritage Keepers in a school. Parents need to ask for it by name.]

Making a Difference!, the curriculum exposed in this letter, does not fulfill the Reproductive Health requirements in the State Law, because it does not teach reproduction!!! If it did, by Law, genders would have to separated. They do not separate the boys and girls.

If Making a Difference! were to follow the Law and teach Reproductive Health Education then they have to teach “human physiology, conception, prenatal care and development, childbirth, and postnatal care” and “Abstinence and the risks associated with sexual activity outside of marriage must be strongly emphasized.” They are not teaching reproductive health as required by Law, therefore should not be touted as a reproductive health curriculum.

Teaching Pregnancy Prevention Education in middle schools is not mandated by Law. It is only at the discretion of the school board. Has the CCSD School Board voted to allow Pregnancy Prevention Education in middle schools? When? If so, then they should follow the Law.

Making a Difference! only says it is teaching “Pregnancy Prevention”, so that it can introduce condoms and contraception to middle schools as part of their STD prevention education. Yet, they do not fulfill the Pregnancy Prevention Education component of the Law either!

If it did follow the Law, teacher must:

“(a) stexplain methods of contraception and the risks and benefits of each method. Abortion must not be included as a method of birth control. Instruction explaining the methods of contraception must not be included in any education program for grades kindergarten through fifth. Contraceptive information must be given in the context of future family planning.”ress the importance of abstaining from sexual activity until marriage;
(b) help students develop skills to enable them to resist peer pressure and abstain from sexual activity;
(c) explain methods of contraception and the risks and benefits of each method. Abortion must not be included as a method of birth control. Instruction explaining the methods of contraception must not be included in any education program for grades kindergarten through fifth. Contraceptive information must be given in the context of future family planning.”

Making a Difference only teaches kids how to have fun with condoms by introducing sexual foreplay. They say their “goal” is to prevent the spread of STDs by encouraging kids to use condoms when having sex. Only problem is…it doesn’t work. Many STDs are spread skin to skin, outside the area covered by a condom.

Nothing in the Law requires that skills in sexual activity and sexual stimulation be taught to any school age child. In fact, it is a violation of the law to depict a sexual act.

Making a Difference is in at least 8 SC School Districts: Anderson 3, Barnwell/Blackville-Hilda, Charleston, Dorchester, Horry, Lancaster, Richland 1, and Spartanburg 3.

It targets 11-13 year old minors, who cannot legally consent to sex.

How can this be age appropriate if it breaks the Law?

SC: “Making Poor Choices” for Minors


Parents, if you have children enrolled in Charleston County (SC) middle schools, especially at Zucker, Morningside, or Northwoods, (and the high school they feed into, Stall HS) you need to know that your child is targeted with one of the worst Safer Sex/Sexual Foreplay curricula in the nation.

Making Proud Choices!, listed on the Planned Parenthood Sex Education website, is on the fast track to be taught to your child beginning in January 2014.

 Unless you say NO! to the School Board and Principals, your child will learn how to:

  • make condoms fun and pleasurable,
  • use condoms as a method of foreplay,
  • act sexy/sensual when putting condoms on,
  • hide condoms on your body and ask your partner to find it,
  • tease each other sexually while putting on a condom,
  • have fun putting one on your partner, while pretending you are different people or in different situations,
  • feel more relaxed and really enjoy yourself, and
  • use condoms to make erections last longer!

This is from Making Proud Choices!: How to Make Condoms Fun and Pleasurable, pg. 150. While Making Proud Choices! claims to be contraception education, in reality it is using contraception to teach minors how to have fun and pleasurable sex so that they will use condoms.

Making Proud Choices is exactly what it says it is, “A Safer-Sex Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STD & HIV Prevention.” It doesn’t even claim to teach middle school students to abstain from sex, although “abstinence” is mentioned as a disclaimer in some of the lessons.

When members of the so-called Health Advisory Committee were challenged about the content and that it encourages sex for minors, they had the audacity to say that, “Making Proud Choices does not encourage middle school students to have sex. It just gives them the information they need for when they decide to start having sex.”

To garner support for Making Proud Choices!, the proponents made many impossible promises. (Kinda like the passing of Obamacare.) They promised that they would make the primary focus “abstinence” and the secondary focus “contraception.”

There are some real problems with those promises:

  1. They cannot and will not take a sexual foreplay program, and turn it into an “abstinence focused” program? This is a ruse.
  2. The Planned Parenthood Network wants you to focus on the Abstinence vs. Contraception debate, rather than the sexual foreplay that they are teaching your child.
  3. South Carolina is going in the wrong direction. CDC Data indicates that 80% of minors nationally have not had sex, so why are we teaching sexual foreplay to 100% of all minors in school districts when they should be focused on academics, sports and being a kid.
  4. SC Law states that minors under the age of 14 CANNOT consent to sex. However, protecting children’s sexual health was deemed so important that the age of protection was extended for children up to age 16 (see Section 16-3-655 in SC’s code of laws). These laws were created to protect minors from being abused and from being exploited by persons older than them. (Should we also disregard laws that restrict kids from buying alcohol and tobacco, just because some do?)

So, if minors cannot legally consent to sex, why are we allowing Planned Parenthood Zealots (including New Morning Foundation and the SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy) and the school districts to exploit and seduce our kids into having sex?

The Sexual Foreplay Cartels will not stop until parents and taxpayers demand it.
