Update: Making “Poor” Choices! Charleston, SC

Making Proud Choices pictureMaking Proud Choices! (MPC!) passed the so-called Health Advisory Committee (HAC) last week and is now on the fast-track for approval from the Charleston County School District. Even after a dozen citizens testified against MPC!, and no one spoke in favor of it, the HAC voted unanimously to send it to the Strategic Education Committee (SEC) which meets Tuesday, June 2 at 9 AM.

A similar effort failed in 2013 when 3-Trustees on the SEC were asked to read just a few pages of content and were so alarmed by the pornographic nature of the lessons that they voted to table it immediately.

The HAC assured us that the pornographic language and other issues have been edited. However, after reviewing their edits, it changes nothing about our objections to this Condoms-Only Sex Program.

Within days of the HAC decision, it was reported that a Communities In Schools representative pressured a middle school principal to use the unapproved MPC!

What’s up with that?

What is Making Proud Choices!?

It is a condoms-only sex program used in some SC counties targeting minors (11-13), who cannot legally consent to sex. MPC! is listed on websites of the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education, including Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, and SIECUS. All of these entities authored or support the National Sexuality Education Standards, the “Common Core” for Sexual Rights Education. The infrastructure for Common Core will act as a conduit for the National Sexuality Education Standards. (See previous post about MPC!)

An April 2015 report on MPC! was presented at The Texas Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy conference just a few weeks ago. Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas taught MPC! targeting African American and Hispanic children in 8th and 9th grade, while a control group was taught a regular health program.

By the end of the 3-year project, more of the MPC! 8th grade students:

  • Had sex for the first time
  • Had sex within 3 months after the program
  • Had unprotected sex, and
  • Were less likely to consistently use condoms…compared to the control students.

MPC! students scored higher on knowledge, but they were less confident that they could say no, to having sex.

Our protest is not about whether contraception should be taught in schools. It is about how and when contraception should be taught.

There is no assurance that any HAC edits or “improvements” will be implemented since the final version of the curriculum has not been made public. And, if significant changes are made, then it should be sent back for medical accuracy approval and evaluations by an independent agency.

As it stands, MPC!:

  • Goes far beyond the scope of law to teach minors sexual foreplay techniques, and how to have fun, pleasurable, erotic sex with condoms, under the guise of STD/HIV prevention.
  • Teaches minors that abstinence is the same as “avoiding unprotected sex.”
  • Violates SC Law by not emphasizing abstinence from sexual activity until marriage. The message is clearly to have sex whenever you “feel” ready. Like Friday night?
  • Targets 11-13 year old legal minors which should automatically deem it inappropriate. (Twelve is the average age for porn addiction and sex trafficking.)

The adolescent brain is not mature until about age 25. MPC! and other similar programs groom and exploit minors to engage in sexual activities right at the time when their brains are rapidly developing neural pathways and are most vulnerable to sexual influences.

With twenty-five percent of youth sexually abused by the time they are 18, the probability of sexually exploited children sitting in these classes is high. What are they to think and feel when they hear a trusted teacher tell them that sexual activity is normal and safe for children their age?

Making Proud Choices! is a poor and harmful choice for our children. Charleston’s youth deserve better!

Contact the Charleston County School Trustees and tell them to

Vote NO! against Making Proud Choices!

 

That scratch your head this is hard to believe moment….

There are those moments when you read something and you do a double take and then… you still cannot believe what you are reading.

Like this: Born after Roe meme from Planned Parenthood.

Hard to believe?

Born after Roe 0ff8b40970c-320wi

Born After Roe is described by Planned Parenthood as , “a reproductive health advocacy group that welcomes new and ardent supporters of Planned Parenthood into a safe space for education and conversation. Its free advocacy salons are specifically aimed at supporters in their 20s and 30s. Past salons have focused on the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby v. Burwell decision, elections, health insurance, how to talk about abortion and sexuality with family and friends, and more.”

So, let me get this right.

Planned Parenthood is concerned about the “next generation?”

Uh….wait a minute…still scratching my head.

He even gives him a business card.

Mans GF PP Uplift

When told by AHA activist, Todd Bullis that Planned Parenthood rips the arms and legs off unborn babies and crushes their skulls he responded by asking, “What does that have to do with me?

Bullis asked the Christian man if he believed he was his brother’s keeper.

Okay, but let me ask you one question,” the man replies.

PornProof Kids™

by Kristen A. Jenson, MA

Asian father and son talking and using digital tabletSummertime can become porntime for kids who have more unsupervised time and easy access to the Internet. A Google Analytics review showed that searches for the word “porn” spiked 4700% after school let out for the summer. So how do you keep your kids safe? Start talking!

5 Reasons Why Your Kids Are Safer if YOU Initiate a Talk about Pornography

I get this question all the time: “Won’t I make my child more curious about pornography if I start talking about it too early?”

Let’s think about that.

Isn’t it safer for kids to have their questions answered about pornography with a parent by their side than for them to be curious when they’re alone on the Internet or with a friend?

In fact, you want to make them curious so you can answer their questions—proactively, on your own terms.

Here are five benefits to…

Abortion advocates lash out on group that supports victims of rape

Saynsumthn's Blog

There are times when good people MUST speak out and this is one of them. My friend is being attacked online by abortion advocates simply because she is willing to help support the “choice” of women and girls to NOT abort their rape conceived children.

Before you start spilling all your hate on me as well, this blog post is not about rape – it is about the hypocrisy of the left. It is about the rape victims and their right to not be made to feel like they are bad people because they did not want to abort their child.

Enter an 11 year-old pregnant rape victim.

If you call yourself pro-choice then you must believe that the “choice” whether to have an abortion or not is the pregnant girl’s alone.

Having said that, I will soon prove that, according to the advocates of abortion, if the pregnant girl…
