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.

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.

The Silent Link to Human Sex Trafficking

Featured

sex-trafficking-wordcloudComprehensive Sex Education (CSE) has indoctrinated generations in the Sexual Rights Agenda. We have been duped by Sexual Rights/CSE propaganda  that convinces us that it is our only hope to decrease teen pregnancies, STDs, sexual abuse, and drop out rates.

Most federally funded CSE programs have been a sham since the 90’s, claiming to be “evidence-based” and “medically accurate.” However, a federal report released in July 2016 reveals that many of these popular Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs (TPP) failed to replicate their “initial sterling” results. Valerie Huber, CEO/President of Ascend, a national Sexual Risk Avoidance organization, writes:

“After nearly a billion dollars, more than 80% of students in these “comprehensive” programs fared either worse or no better than their peers who were not in the program. Teens in some TPP-funded projects were even more likely to begin having sex, more likely to engage in oral sex, and more likely to get pregnant than their peers who weren’t in the classes.”

Watch The War on Children, The Comprehensive Sexuality Education Agenda

It is not surprising then to read that under the Obama Administration, human/child sex trafficking in the U.S. has exploded. For almost 8 years, the Obama Administration has fully funded the Sexual Rights Agenda either directly or indirectly with taxpayer dollars. Almost every federal agency, including Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, and the Department of Justice, has either promoted the Sexual Rights Agenda or turned a blind eye to it’s consequences. Except for the FBI.

The FBI is the primary federal agency that has diligently pursued human sex trafficking in the U.S. In 2015, pedophilia and human sex trafficking had reached an almost epidemic level as reported by the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division. According to Assistant Director Joseph Campbell:

“”The level of pedophilia is just unprecedented right now. We have so many cases constantly of individuals in all walks of life, from the very wealthy … to all other levels engaged in child pornography, child exploitation … it just seems to be almost an at epidemic level.”

The vast majority of the children trafficked in the U.S. are not Mexican or Central American, but are American.”

The Department of Justice made the 2016 Dirty Dozen list as a Top Facilitators of Sexual Exploitation by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, which states,

“From the time Obama took office in 2008, no enforcement actions against illegal obscenity have been initiated by DOJ, and in 2011 former Attorney General Eric Holder dismantled the Obscenity Prosecution Task Force.” 

Still, these obscenity crimes only deal with adults, not minors. Today’s adults that engage in sexual exploitation were themselves minors just a few years ago!

What did they learn about sexual lifestyles and where did they learn it?

Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) is the silent link that fuels the sexual exploitation of children, minors, women, men, and families. Through CSE indoctrination in our schools, children as young as Kindergarten are convinced that they have “rights” to sexual pleasure. CSE programs, under the guise of “anti-bullying,” “teen pregnancy and STD prevention,” “sex abuse prevention,” and now “equality” programs, often include sexually graphic content and/or pornography, which stimulates neurological/brain development towards sexual excitement.

Teachers trained in many CSE programs have the boundaries blurred between them and their students. They are trained to speak sexual and/or pornographic content to minors. Much of the content would get any of us locked up for sexual exploitation, yet it is mandated in many schools.

By normalizing sexual activity among and with children, they are setup for sexual exploitation. They expect to be approached for sexual favors and think nothing of exploring their sexuality before they can handle it. Our children are groomed and programed to look for sex in all of the worst places!

If we want to protect our children from sexual exploitation, pornographic CSE must be eliminated in our schools and communities. As legal minors, they deserve the legal protection promised them, whether they want it or not. That’s why they are minors!

Ignoring CSE’s link to sex trafficking just compounds the corruption and misery for future generations.

 

 

 

Immediate Release! MN Parent Fights for Her Rights!

Minnesota Mom Sues for Usurpation of Parental Rights Thomas More Society Charges Transgender Docs for Treating Son Without Permission
Contact: Tom Ciesielka, 312.422.1333, tc@tcpr.net

(November 16, 2016 – Duluth, MN) Today, a Minnesota mother filed suit against St. Louis County and other agencies for usurping her parental rights over her minor son, who has been receiving transgender services and narcotic drugs without her parental consent. Anmarie Calgaro’s child has been handled by the defendants as an emancipated minor despite no court action to that effect. According to her suit, Minnesota law provides Calgaro no recourse to challenge the emancipation status, which is a violation of her rights as guaranteed under the United State Constitution. She is being represented by attorneys from the not-for-profit public interest law firm, the Thomas More Society, along with Mohrman, Kaardal & Erickson, P.A. Named as defendants in Calgaro’s lawsuit are St. Louis County, St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services Director, Fairview Health Services, Park Nicollet Health Services, St. Louis County School District, Principal of the Cherry School, and her minor son.

Calgaro, along with attorneys and child advocates, will hold a press conference to address the violations of her rights as a parent in connection to her son.

WHAT: Press conference on illegal actions by St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services, Fairview Health Services, Park Nicollet Health Services and St. Louis County School District
WHEN: Wednesday, November 16, 2016, 10 a.m. (Central)
WHERE: Room 181, State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. St. Paul, MN, 55155
MAP: State Office Building, St. Paul, MN

WHO:
● Anmarie Calgaro, parent of non-emancipated minor
● Erick Kaardal, Thomas More Society Special Counsel and partner at Mohrman, Kaardal & Erickson, P.A
● Tom Brejcha, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Society
● Michele Lentz, President, Minnesota Child Protection League

ONSITE CONTACTS:
Julie Quist, 507.720.4772
Erick Kaardal, 763.486.5435

Calgaro’s parental involvement has been repeatedly circumvented as it concerns her 17-year old son. This interference is despite Minnesota’s strong legal tradition of protecting parental rights. In June of 2015, Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid Clinic advised the boy that he was emancipated without a court order; however no legal action has been taken to terminate his mother’s parental rights.

With the same disregard for parental consent, two medical service providers Park Nicollet Minneapolis Gender Services and Fairview provided the minor child medical treatment for a sex change from male to female and for prescribed narcotics, respectively. The medical services and were paid for through St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services.

The St. Louis County Schools, Independent School District 2142, is also treating the child as an emancipated minor, something he is not. The school district is classifying the boy as an adult with exclusive rights to information and decision-making. They are denying Calgaro access to his educational records or any legal authority to affect his educational decision-making.

Ironically, the boy’s application for a name change was denied by the St. Louis County District Court because of the “lack of any adjudication relative to emancipation.”
“This is an outrageous abuse of power by multiple agencies,” stated Tom Brejcha, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Society. “To treat a minor child without either parental consent or a court order of emancipation is a violation of the trust placed upon the human service sector and its governmental oversight agencies. To give a parent no recourse to intervene in this situation is an egregious violation of Constitutional rights.”

The filing notes:

  • Calgaro’s son is being given unauthorized services and narcotic drugs without either parental consent or a court order of emancipation.
  • Minnesota law violates Calgaro’s federal right to due process because she has no ability to challenge the service providers’ actions without either parental consent or a court order of emancipation.
  • Calgaro has no path to object to her son’s life-changing operation under Minnesota law.
  • Minnesota Courts recognize that a minor child is not emancipated until a Court decides the child is emancipated.
  • The son has filed two petitions to establish a female name. Those requests have been denied because he has no court order of emancipation.

Kaardal summarized, “Ms. Calgaro as a Minnesota parent is entitled to notice and hearing when parental rights regarding a minor child are terminated. Regarding emancipation, the courts recognize a common law right for a teenager to petition for emancipation; but, the courts do not recognize a corresponding common law right for a parent to petition to de-emancipate a teenager. Thus, Minnesota statutes constitutionally err by allowing a medical service provider to treat a teenager as emancipated without a court order and without providing parents a post-deprivation process to challenge the medical service provider’s determination of emancipation. Similarly, the County’s and School District’s determinations of the teenager’s emancipation without a court order violate the parent’s right to notice and a hearing; but, unlike the medical service providers, the County and the School District do not have a statute to pin their unconstitutional conduct on.”

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?

The Sexual Rights Cash Cow

cow-cashHave you ever felt queasy about those sex programs in your child’s school or health clinic? Maybe you feel that your child is too young to know about oral, anal, and vaginal sex, and how lube can make sex more fun…but you say nothing.

Besides, all of the other parents are letting strangers teach their children about sex, so why shouldn’t you?

Or, maybe you caved, because Educrats and Sexperts have convinced you that they know better than you what is best for your child?

Your gut is right and you should have trusted it! Some of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs promoted and funded with your tax dollars were re-evaluated over the past five years and FAILED miserably. Buried in the HHS website is the evidence that these programs fared no better than general health classes at reducing teen sex or increasing condom use. In fact, some of the programs increased teen sex and pregnancies!

Thanks to Ascend CEO Valerie Huber, these evaluations released in July 2016 are exposed in this press release. Ascend is the only credentialing organization in the U.S. that trains professionals in Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA), a public health model for optimal ascend-infographic-on-csesexual health. You can read more in Obama’s promiscuous sex-ed program a failure. Also, click on the Infographic (right) for a quick look or here for a more detailed summary of the findings.

Parents must find out if these failed Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) programs are still in their schools and community organizations: Carrera Program (Children’s Aid Society), Cuidate, It’s Your Game: Keep It Real, PHAT! Abstinence-Only Intervention (Promoting Health Among Teens), Reducing the Risk, Safer Sex, Seventeen Days, Teen Outreach Program, and BART (Becoming A Responsible Teen).

We need a massive recall of these programs!

Don’t be duped by so-called “adaptations” of old or failed programs. Adaptations are simply a slick move by HHS to revamp the same failed sex programs without evaluating them. If the core is rotten, the entire product is disgusting!

While, most of the HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs are a scam, there is one exception. Heritage Keepers® Abstinence Education is the only authentic Sexual Risk Avoidance program that has been proven effective at increasing abstinence among teens. Heritage Keepers® promotes abstinence-outside-of-marriage. After one year, Heritage Keepers® students initiated sexual activity at a rate that is 67% lower than students not receiving the program.

Today, we have generations of indoctrinated millennials and those younger who think that aberrant sexual lifestyles are the norm. They have been taught that everyone, regardless of age, has the right to sex, as long as they have consent.

Really? Sexual predators groom their victims to consent to sex.

American parents must wake up. You have been used and abused by the Sexual Rights Agenda. You are their Cash Cow. They have taken your money, your children, and your marriages.

Now, they want to take away your future.

 

First Ladies of Africa Push Back!

Featured

taxdollarsatworkWhat does “reproductive health” mean to you? To the US and the United Nations (UN), “reproductive health” means unlimited access to abortion. The baby’s health – and life – are not important.  Abortion is the solution to all human problems and it must be normalized to the entire world.

 

Abortion is often introduced through Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) by Sexual Rights Groups. Pro-life advocates need to pay attention to CSE, because it has indoctrinated generations into the Sexual Rights culture. (Find Member Organizations of the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education in the US)

The UN continues its push for abortion rights in Africa under the guise of CSE, which only promotes condoms and contraception. Advocates are careful not to mention abortion, but lay the foundation for it by addressing forced marriages, female mutilation, and sexual violence against girls.

The Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam) posted an article entitled UN Agencies Enlist African First Ladies to Sanitize “Reproductive Health” and Sex Ed, which reveals that many of the First Ladies are not deceived about the US/UN’s agenda to destroy their families through sexuality education.

In fact, several first ladies used the opportunity to speak positively about the family and African culture and tradition, both of which are frequently characterized at the UN as barriers to sexual and reproductive rights.  The First Lady of Burkina Faso quoted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights description of the family as “the natural and fundamental group unit of society,” while the First Lady of Namibia referred to traditional practices as “the glue that keeps our societies together.”

The First Lady of Nigeria stressed the importance for adolescent girls of understanding the balance of freedom and responsibility, especially in the context of sex education, which she said must teach about the “dangers of indulgence and licentious behavior and the importance of abstinence and self-control.”

While abortion is illegal in many African nations, the UN is relentless in normalizing it as the only solution to all of Africa’s problems. The First Lady of Namibia called out the UN, and the US government, for pushing their “one size fits all” agenda onto African nations.

Why does the US and United Nations persist in their subversive takeover of other nations with their Sexual Rights ideologies? How far will the United Nations Population Fund and the International Planned Parenthood Federation go to normalize deviant sexual practices that violate the values of other nations?

As far as the voters and taxpayers will allow it.
