Scientific knowledge often changes. True science must be tested, validated, and replicated with independent peer review to pass the test. Even then, new scientific discoveries or questions may change, add to, or discredit even the most accepted “scientific facts.”
In The Top 10 Retractions of 2014, A look at this year’s most memorable retractions b (12/23/14), we find that shoddy scientific reports happen every day. If it were not for true scientific skeptics, who investigate and scrutinize research, we would all be duped.
Peer review does not always mean independent and unbiased peer review. The Planned Parenthood, Guttmacher, and SIECUS Sex Networks have plenty of “peers” to “review” their “science!” Most of the Planned Parenthood sex-only curricula in our schools today were “evaluated” and “peer reviewed” by the authors or their colleagues who hold to similar Alfred Kinsey ideology.
The late Sex Ed guru, Doug Kirby, is a good example of a researcher who developed and evaluated his own programs. Kirby and his PhD colleagues at Education Training Resources (ETR) have made millions using taxpayer dollars (Federal HIV funding through the CDC) to write sex ed curricula aligned with their ideology, and to package and disseminate (sell) them with government funding to countless school districts in the US and globally. Safer Choices is a “protected sex-only” program developed at ETR and evaluated by Kirby.
So, don’t believe it when schools send out notices to inform you that your child is to be taught “medically accurate” and “age appropriate” sex education. You must become the ‘scientist’ for your child. You must dig deep to find out what is being taught and whether it aligns with your values. The Planned Parenthood Network is counting on you to NOT take the time and effort to do that.
Many state legislators and public school districts are mandating that minors, who cannot legally consent to sex, be taught how to have sex. Is this how we teach alcohol, drugs and tobacco prevention?
Minor students are being taught how to engage in sexual foreplay and sexual intercourse. Activities that would get them suspended or expelled from school if it happened on school property or at a school event.
2015 will usher in more legislation seeking to mandate PP Sex-only Ed in all schools. Beware of any sex ed that does not promote marriage as the best context for sex and/or says that it is “abstinence-only.” They leave off the “until-marriage” hoping you will not notice or care. Marriage does matter!
Advocates of Making a Difference! and Draw the Line/Respect the Line often claim that they are abstinence-only programs, but fail to tell you that these curricula do not teach students how long to be abstinent or in what relationship context sex is healthiest. By omitting marriage they are really saying, wait until you “feel” ready. And, when you are ready…this is how to have sex… This is grooming your child for sex.
We have over 50 years of evidence to show that sex outside of marriage does not end well.
It’s your child. It’s your dime.
