Making Proud Choices!, a Sexual Rights curriculum, is listed on the Planned Parenthood website. Making Proud Choices! is under consideration for all schools in Charleston, South Carolina.
There will be a public hearing August 4th, next Tuesday 9 AM at the District offices 75 Calhoun Street in downtown Charleston.
We urge parents, faith leaders, and taxpayers to attend this meeting in protest of Making Proud Choices! It sends wrong messages to our children that sex at their age is normal, healthy and safe; that abstinence and “protected sex” are equally protective; and how to have “Fun and Pleasurable Sex” with condoms.
The fact that condoms are not 100% protective against pregnancy and STDs is not taught throughout. Even GAY PRIDE groups are waking up to the fact that the FDA has never approved condoms for anal sex.
Therefore, Making Proud Choices! may contain medically inaccurate information.
Proponents of Making Proud Choices! from EMPOWERR – MUSC Dept. of Psychiatry, made some changes, but ONLY to the Facilitator Manual.
If Making Proud Choices! is such a wonderful program, why the need to make any changes to get it into the schools?
After spending hours reviewing the final version of the program content, the obvious intent has not changed. That is, to teach students how to have sex. Refusal skills to abstain from all sexual activity are not taught. Nothing was changed in the DVDs and student workbooks, which contain sexually obscene, graphic, and explicit information about how to use condoms for “fun and pleasurable” sex.
Do you want Charleston’s middle and high school students to learn about any of the information on this flyer?
Take Action! Making Proud Choices! needs to be BANNED, once and for all, by the Charleston County School Trustees.
- Read and print the flyer and share it with others.
- Write the School Trustees and tell them that Making Proud Choices! is not appropriate for Charleston’s adolescents and teens.
- Show up at the public hearing on Tuesday, August 4th 9AM at 75 Calhoun Street.
