Opt Out of Making A Difference!

Featured

Is your child taking Making A Difference! this year in sex ed? Do you know that Making A Difference! still claims to be an abstinence education program? It isn’t and never has been. Making A Difference! is just another sexually explicit Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) program. It grooms children (12-14 years, Middle School) to engage in sexual activity. Parents need to OPT OUT!

Making A Difference! redefines abstinence to mean “choosing not to do any sexual behavior that could cause pregnancy or spread diseases.” It also claims to not teach any information on condoms or other forms of birth control. That’s not true. An analysis of its the content reveals that it contains plenty of available demonstrations on condoms, birth control/contraception, and dental dams. Plus, every kind of sexual behavior imaginable is describe and promoted as so-called ‘safe-sex.’

Using the “The CSE Harmful Elements Analysis Tool,” developed by Family Watch International, a team analyzed each page of the curriculum, facilitator guide, and student workbook. This tool includes 15 Harmful Elements typically found in CSE and proven to cause harm to children. Making A Difference! scored 15 out of all 15 harmful elements. This sex program should be banned in all fifty states!

The Making A Difference! curriculum and anyone who teaches it grooms children to engage in sexual activity that can have life-long negative consequences.

Making A Difference! is neither age appropriate nor medically accurate. It uses roleplay and sexual scenarios to desensitize and normalize child sex. It teaches minors how to consent to sex as long as condoms are used, convincing them that condoms can make sex safe. Children are taught to decide for themselves when they are “ready to engage in safe, consensual sexual activity.” Educators are trained to ask children as young as 12 years old probing questions like:

Why do you think some young people your age are having sex? What other words do we use for touching? What kind of sex can people have by themselves? What other things might people do with their mouths? What kinds of things can people do with their hands?”

Afterwards, children are introduced to various ways to “express their sexual feelings to themselves and other people.” Such as “talking, hugging, holding hands, kissing, touching, saying ‘I like you,’ dancing, massage, masturbation, caressing, cuddling, grinding, sexual fantasy, touching each other’s genitals, oral sex, vaginal sex, anal sex.” Each of these behaviors are defined in graphic detail just to make sure students know how to do them. Other terms such as homosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight are explained in graphic detail. Any activity that is” sexually pleasurable” and promotes “sexual orgasm” is acceptable as long as it does “not lead to pregnancy or transmission of disease.” However, we know that in many cases it does lead to pregnancy and disease.

Making A Difference! exploits minors, as well as the educators who are mandated to teach it, because it claims to be evidence-based. This means that it has supposedly been proven successful at encouraging abstinence. Making A Difference! was ‘evaluated’ by its authors and the publisher, ETR Associates, is a former publishing arm of Planned Parenthood. Red Flags! This single evaluation was conducted in 1998 on a small sample of students. This is absurd research design!

The outcomes on Making A Difference! revealed that virgin students abstained for only 3 months after the program. No results were reported for sexually experienced students. That is not success! Why have there not been replication studies conducted on this program in the past 21 years? The only relevant changes to the 5th Edition were to make it more inclusive and sensitive towards LGBTQ youth.

Most parents when told that their 12 year old child will receive abstinence education do not expect them to be instructed on oral, anal and vaginal sex. Most parents that we know would be livid if their child were told that any kind of sex – with anyone – at any age – is appropriate and expected. Using trusted authority figures like educators to teach such sensitive information is deceitful.

Protect your child from sexual exploitation! Making A Difference! is not an abstinence education program as it purports to be. Check out the links in this article before you allow your child into this sex class. Be sure to OPT OUT while you still can. Share this info with other parents. Opting Out sends a message to your school administrators that this type of education is not appropriate for children.

Hands off our kids!

Don’t Sexualize Our Kids!

We, as concerned parents and community members, are sick of the sexualization of our children! We say NO to graphic, gender-bending, promiscuity-promoting sex education for our kids.

We demand that public schools stop treating our children like guinea pigs in some social engineering experiment. We demand that schools respect parents’ values and parents’ authority.

We will not stand for our tax money being used to promote sexual liberation, deviance, and gender confusion to our precious kids. In protest, we stand together with those parents pulling their children out of public school on April 23rd for the sex ed sit out.

SIGN NOW

Dear Mary,

In less than one week, the “Sex Ed Sit Out”will take place in cities across the US, Canada, and Australia.

Parents are fed up with the sexual education (indoctrination) their children are receiving in our public school system. They want their kids to learn the three Rs, not the LGBTQIAs. They are tired of their hard-earned tax dollars going to pay for programs and policies that blatantly contradict their family’s values and beliefs.

That’s why parents will be pulling their kids out of public schools across the globe onMonday, April 23rd, 2018. They are protesting graphic, gender-bending, promiscuity-promoting sex education for our kids.

Show your support and sign the petition: http://www.citizengo.org/en/fm/160082-fed-parents-plan-sex-ed-sit-out

This protest was initiated by a group of moms on social media. These are moms who love and care for their kids. They want them to learn respect, decency, and virtue. They do not think they should be learning how to have anal and oral sex, masturbate one another, or change genders. These are just some of the perverse practices being promoted in so-called “comprehensive sexuality education” (CSE).

I fought hard against CSE at the United Nations last month, along with a team of international CitizenGO campaigners. UN-based CSE programs encourage immoral behaviour and dangerous experimentation while downplaying abstinence and omitting purity. I am so encouraged to see this grassroots “Sex Ed Sit Out” effort growing and expanding to address CSE on the local level – where our kids are most impacted.

Elizabeth Johnston (“Activist Mommy“), one of the founding moms, is quoted in Newsweek as saying, “This is a sit out everyone can support and that we should be supporting. If you are not a rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth leftist liberal who wants to pervert the minds of children, everyone should be able to support [it].”

Sign now: http://www.citizengo.org/en/fm/160082-fed-parents-plan-sex-ed-sit-out

To date, official protests are planned for twelve cities:

  • Austin, Texas
  • Bloomington, Indiana
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Decorah, Iowa
  • Garden Grove, California
  • Martinsburg, West Virginia
  • Sacramento, California
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Spokane, Washington
  • Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
  • Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
  • Mulgrave, Victoria, Australia

More details area available on the Sex Ed Sit Out web site and Facebook page.

Whether you are a parent or not, please join us by signing our petition to say NOto graphic, immoral sex education for children! And if you are able to come out in person, join the “Sex Ed Sit Out” protest next Monday, April 23rd at one of the locations above – or start a protest in your own town.

Sincerely Yours,

David Cooke and the entire CitizenGO Team

Sign and share the petition: http://www.citizengo.org/en/fm/160082-fed-parents-plan-sex-ed-sit-out

P.S. Our children are our future. We all need to be concerned about who’s filling their minds with what. Please sign and share the petition today to help make our voices heard. God Bless.

Condom Failure in South Carolina

Health experts in South Carolina (SC) are finally showing concern about the high rates of STDs/HIV among teens. According to GoUpstate.com,

In one-year, the rate of HIV/AIDS jumped 11% among 15-19 year olds.

And, SC ranks in the top ten states for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HIV/AIDS.

This data is surprising since HIV/AIDS rates are generally reported as declining. What are we to think? 

Regardless of its validity, you should know that the “health experts” mentioned in this article are members of the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education, a coalition run by SIECUS, which is a spin-off of Planned Parenthood. They are in league with over three hundred national Sexperts who promote Sexual Rights in our schools under the guise of Comprehensive Sexuality Education. (CSE).

Teaching students to delay sex until their brains are mature and they are self-sufficient adults is the best sexual health message, regardless of their sexual history or sexual orientation. However, that is not a Sexpert’s primary goal. Delaying sex just does not fit the Sexual Rights narrative, nor the sex industries’ lucrative business model. They want to get kids hooked on sex at an early age so that they become lifelong customers.

Sexual Rights advocates cannot admit that CSE or ‘contraception-only sex ed’ fails to protect our children from the consequences of sex, mainly STDs/HIV. Rather, they shift the blame to a lack of “access to health care services and affordability of health care services.” Really? Using vulnerable minors to politicize the STD/HIV crisis in SC is absolutely shameless. And for what? More condom distribution centers!

The problem is not health services; it is CSE in our schools. CSE is neither comprehensive nor educational. It is Sexual Rights indoctrination that normalizes and promotes sexual activity for minors. Students are legal minors and cannot consent to sex, so why are adults teaching them how to have sex?

Besides, many SC high school students are not even using condoms. GoUpstate.com reports that, “Only 59 percent of [sexually active] high school students report (2015) using a condom the last time they had sex.” This data does not even factor whether the condoms were used correctly or consistently.

If 59 percent were the only relative data point, this might sounds OK. But, the report neglects to inform us that condom use in SC peaked in 2005 at 67 percent and it has been in decline ever since! Most of this decline occurred during the Obama years when sexually explicit, pornographic, CSE programs began receiving more than 90 percent of all federal sex ed funding. Teaching kids the pleasures of sex and expecting them to care about their future health is ludicrous.

And, for those 41 percent that used a condom the last time they had sex, condoms are not protective enough. Exaggerating condom effectiveness or allowing students to believe that condoms will protect them from STDs is deceitful. Such medically inaccurate information gives students false assurance that they are protected and it encourages them to take more risks.

In addition to failed condom education, we reported last fall that a U.S. Health and Human Services replication study of  “evidence-based” CSE programs reveals that most were ineffective. The full review is in the American Journal of Public Health (October 2016). One of their conclusions was,

“While several of the evaluations did show positive outcomes, most of the programs had small or insignificant impacts on adolescent behavior.”

Valerie Huber, Founder/CEO of WeAscend.org, a national Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) policy organization, nailed it in her summary of the findings:

“Compared with their peers who were in the program, teens in some TPP-funded projects were more likely to begin having sex, more likely to engage in oral sex, and more likely to get pregnant. In fact, more than 80% of students in these programs fared either worse or no better than their peers who were not in the program.”

Those ignoring the devastating results of CSE programs are not competent to teach our children. To date, none of the failed CSE programs have been pulled from SC schools. Parents and taxpayers must demand that they be removed and replaced with proven-effective Sexual Risk Avoidance programs.

If CSE programs were seat belts, they would have been recalled years ago!

Comprehensive Sex Ed: Total Waste of Our Money!

Featured

By Mary S McLellan, SRAS (Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist)

Do you ever wonder why our culture is more sexualized and pornified than eight years ago?

Nearly a BILLION DOLLAR$ of our money was funneled to Comprehensive Sexuality Education under the Obama administration. 


Comprehensive Sexuality Education is not about science, biology, or reproduction. It is about teaching minor children the pleasures of sex, Sexual Rights, and that sexual risks are no big deal. 

Most so-called Comprehensive Sexuality Education downplays STDs and solves every pregnancy with abortion. It is total indoctrination into a hedonistic lifestyle. Maybe that’s why condom use has flat-lined for twenty-years! (CDC YRBS)

Using terms like “medically accurate” and “age appropriate” are red flags when defined by Planned Parenthood, Advocates For Youth, or Obama’s complicit media. 

Today’s “Comprehensive” Sexuality Education leaves out the many benefits of and skills needed to delay sex until one is educated, self-sufficient, and ready to form a healthy family. That’s not comprehensive enough for most parents and grandparents, who want only quality education for their children. 

We need to defund Obama’s Sexual Rights Agenda so that America’s children can thrive and enjoy the freedoms they deserve.

Charleston, SC: The Horns Come Out!

Featured

Mary S. McLellan, MS, SRAS ~ Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist

mens-scary-devil-horns-long-halloween-fancy-dress-9748-pLast week, the Charleston County School District had the audacity to protect the innocence of middle school students from the Sexual Rights Agenda. They voted unanimously to REJECT the Appendix to Making A Difference!, a Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum. The Board said that the Appendix contained inappropriate information for students in middle school.

 

Maybe it’s Halloween, but all Hell has broken loose! The horns are out from every Sexual Rights organization in and outside of South Carolina. How dare the school district defy them! The Sexual Rights Cartel is livid and won’t stop until parents and taxpayers tell them to shut-up and keep their hands off of children!

Who are these Sexual Rights organizations in SC demanding that minors learn how to have so-called “safe sex?” According to the media buzz, they are Women’s Rights & Empowerment Network – a new organization established by New Morning Foundation/Tell Them SCFlorence Crittenton, and Charleston County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council, which is part of the SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. They all work in concert with the media: Post & Courier, Charleston Currents, and the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education to promote the Sexual Rights Agenda through taxpayer supported government infrastructure.

The so-called “revised” Making A Difference! curriculum has not been evaluated for effectiveness and it is doubtful that it is any different or better from the original 1998 version. The original version was never evaluated in a school based setting. Even then…

“The study did not find any statistically significant program impacts on rates of sexual intercourse for adolescents who were sexually experienced at baseline, or on frequency of sexual intercourse, condom use, or unprotected sexual intercourse for the full sample. The study found no statistically significant program impacts for the follow-ups conducted six and 12 months after the program ended.”

Making A Difference! is touted as an “abstinence” program, but the title tells the true story: “Making A Difference!” An Abstinence Approach to Prevent STDs, HIV and Teen Pregnancy.” It is not an authentic abstinence education program because appropriate boundaries for sex, such as commitment, monogamy and marriage, are not discussed. Without boundaries anything is permissible! The term “abstinence approach” is often used to deceive school districts, teachers, parents and taxpayers into thinking that they are supporting an effective sex ed program.

Read more articles about Making A Difference! at ExposeSexEdNow.com.

Why is this program not age appropriate? Middle school students are typically 11-13 years old. They are minors, which means that they are legally incapable of consenting to sex. Laws are written to protect minors from sexual predators or anyone that would make them vulnerable to enticement into sexual activities. This is a very serious matter in our culture.

Charleston County School Board is more than justified in nixing the Making A Difference! Appendix. It includes information about sexual orientation (which is a violation of state law), inaccurate and misleading information about the effectiveness of condoms, and ambiguous language about the definition of abstinence. It also suggests that sexual foreplay is an appropriate alternative to intercourse, and it normalizes sexual relationships for minors.

Judge for yourself! Here are just a few examples found in the Making A Difference! Appendix:

  • Pg. 222-225. Role Plays about Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual relationships.
  • Pg. 228 #9. (True) or False. “Anyone who has unprotected sex or shares needles can get HIV.”
    • While this is technically a true statement, it is also true that ‘Anyone who has protected sex (condoms) can get HIV.’ People still get HIV, even when using a condom. Condoms do not make sex safe enough.
    • Adolescents are primarily concrete thinkers and their brains have not developed to the point of higher abstract and critical thinking. Most adolescents (11-13) will not notice the discrepancies in their statement, which implies that using a condom is ‘just about’ as safe as abstinence.
  • Pg. 229
    • #16. Implies that condoms are 100% effective at preventing HIV transmission.  This is medically inaccurate, in fact fraudulent, information. Condoms can only reduce the risk of HIV infection.
    • Pg. 229, #20. Suggests sexual foreplay ideas and defines all of the listed behaviors as “sexual behaviors.”
      • Legal minors are asked to select 3 “sexual behaviors” that will not exchange bodily fluids.
      • Avoiding bodily fluids is not the only danger of having sex. This activity implies that sex is OK as long as bodily fluids are not transmitted.
      • 11-13 year old minors are legally incapable of consenting to sex. To normalize sex for minors makes educators complicit in contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
    • 252. The definition of abstinence is inadequate, misleading, and narrowly focused only on sexual intercourse.
      • In Making A Difference!, as well as in most Comprehensive Sex Education programs, abstinence is often defined as “not engaging in sexual intercourse of any type (oral, anal or vaginal).” This definition allows for sexual foreplay, which can transmit STDs, and often leads to sexual intercourse.
      • The medically accurate and age appropriate definition for abstinence is “not engaging in any sexual activity of any type, including oral, anal or vaginal.

The Sexual Rights Cartel has exposed their horns. They are not interested in protecting kids. They only want access to them.

Write the Charleston County School Board today and tell them thank-you for protecting the innocence of children. They need support from parents for this decision.

RECALL: “Making A Difference!”

Featured

by Mary S. McLellan, MS, SRAS ~ Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist

massive-recall-for-takata-airbags1-791x445 Would you let your child’s life depend on an unreliable product that claims to only Reduce the Risks of harm? READ the research on “Making A Difference!” before you allow your child to take this course in middle school.

 

Back in 1998, the research design for “Making A Difference!” was considered strong and still, those results from a single study showed that the program only delayed sex for 3 months, in a small sample of 11-13 year old African American urban students, who – had NOT had sex.

However, at the 6 and 12 month evaluation, there was no impact on sexual initiation, sex, condom use, or unprotected sex. NO IMPACT!

“The study found that three months after the program ended, adolescents participating in the intervention who were sexually inexperienced at baseline were significantly less likely to report having had sexual intercourse in the previous 3 months. The study did not find any statistically significant program impacts on rates of sexual intercourse for adolescents who were sexually experienced at baseline, or on frequency of sexual intercourse, condom use, or unprotected sexual intercourse for the full sample. The study found no statistically significant program impacts for the follow-ups conducted six and 12 months after the program ended.”

This 18 year old program had only been evaluated ONCE; there were no replication studies to show that the same thing could happen again. (This is shoddy research.) Why was it deemed an Evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program and put on the US Health and Human Services’ and CDC’s list to push in public schools?

“Making A Difference!” has been promoted in public schools for eighteen years!

“Making A Difference!” has NEVER been officially evaluated in a school setting, but only in after-school and community settings (poor inner city minorities.) YET, it is widely used to teach all minors in school settings. Again, shoddy research and application!

“Making A Difference!” is touted as an “abstinence education program,” but uses the term “abstinence-approach” to fool school districts into thinking they have a proven effective abstinence education program.

An authentic Evidence-based Abstinence/Sexual Risk Avoidance Education program sets clear boundaries to avoid all sexual activity. Boundaries such as commitment, monogamy, and marriage. However, “Making A Difference!” does not set boundaries for how long the minor child is to delay sex. They teach…When you feel ready for sex. That could be today – right after school, this weekend, prom night, etc.

“”Making A Difference!” is an Abstinence Approach to Prevention of STDs, HIV and Teen Pregnancy is an eight module curriculum that provides young adolescents with the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to reduce their risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), HIV, and pregnancy by abstaining from sex. The curriculum is designed for middle school youth and is delivered by trained facilitators.”

“Making A Difference” is written by the Jemmotts, the same authors who wrote “Making Proud Choices!” and “Be Proud! Be Responsible.” They used a Sexual Risk Reduction approach, rather than a Sexual Risk Avoidance approach. Several of the Jemmott sex programs are advocated by Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, and other Sexual Rights Groups.

Sexual Risk Reduction means that as long as “protection” is used (condoms, birth control, alternative sex) then sex can be safe. Really? Is this what minors, who legally cannot consent to sex, need to hear? How has that been working for us over the past 20 years?

Just like Jewish lives…Black Lives DO Matter!

Featured

Tim ScottDid Jewish lives matter during World War II? Yes, and there was no quibbling about it. Jewish people were targeted by the Nazis for extinction and Christians, like Corrie Ten Boom with others in the Holland Underground, sacrificed their lives to save them.

Why are we whining about whether Black Lives Matter or All Lives Matter? It’s petty in the midst of the violence on our streets, deliberate slaughter of unborn Black babies, and fatherless children.

The Black family in America has been systematically under assault since the time of slavery, and especially since Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, designed ways to control Black populations. Along with Adolph Hitler, Sanger collaborated in eugenics to develop a pure race by getting rid of populations that, in their opinion, were unfit. Hitler targeted the Jews and Sanger targeted the “Negroes.” Both, also targeted the mentally deficient so that they would not be a burden on social services.

Margaret Sanger is quoted saying, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

According to Dr. Paul Kenger, “Margaret Sanger spoke to a women’s organization affiliated with the KKK and she started the Negro Project to bring birth-control information and clinics to impoverished southern African-Americans. Moreover, the Planned Parenthood founder unequivocally preached a creed of “race improvement,” which meant refining the gene pool and controlling and limiting the reproduction of human beings whom she thought weakened the human race. She clearly saw “Negroes” as among those members of the human race whose reproduction she wanted to control. And there is no doubt that the KKK, being absolute racists, would have lauded that.”

Not only did Sanger seek to control the population growth of Black families, President Johnson’s War on Poverty during the 60’s targeted Black families for government dependency and birth control. Taxpayer funded Planned Parenthood clinics were located in predominately Black neighborhoods to target Black women seeking contraception or abortions. More American unborn Black babies are slaughtered in abortions than any other race. This is genocide.

Add to that, taxpayer funded public schools that indoctrinate generations of Black children through so-called Comprehensive Sex Ed. These sex programs promote early sexual activity, which sustains the Planned Parenthood business model through birth control, teen pregnancies, STD treatments, and abortions. Poor inner city Black youth have been used in “research projects” to develop many of the Comprehensive Sex Ed programs used in public schools across the nation. Such Sexual Rights programs are then funded by federal and state taxes to not only promote birth control and abortion, but also pornographic sex play, gender diversity and transgender agendas.

The ‘newest’ idea from Progressive think tanks is public boarding schools, where inner city youth in Washington, DC are housed during the week and indoctrinated. Once again, our taxes pay for this.

We are all being played by governmental systems and a complicit media. Government and money are the problem, not the solution.

Regardless of whose fault the violence and injustice belongs, the Black family needs help. Senator Tim Scott (SC), one of only two Black US Senators stated today, “The government cannot make us get along,” he said. Instead, Americans would have to do better, be kinder and listen with “their heads and their hearts.”

Black Lives Matter” is an urgent cry to pay attention. Stop defending Whiteness. If you are really not a racist, speak out for justice and stop the madness wherever you live.
