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!

Charleston, SC: Making Proud Choices! is Back

 

Making Condoms FunMaking Proud Choices!, one of the most sexually explicit Planned Parenthood Sex Curricula in the nation is back for approval in the school district. Making Proud Choices! for 11-13 year old minors is promoted as an “Evidence-Based Safer-Sex Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STDs and HIV.” However, it does not teach abstinence from all sexual activity. In fact, abstinence is taught as “avoiding unprotected sex.”

Opting out of sex ed does little to protect students from pornographic content. Their peers will repeat or text (sext) what they have learned and/or they will be ostracized as “those prudes” who are not cool with learning how to have fun and pleasurable sex. Unless masses of parents opt out, no one cares. Even then, it won’t really change the bureaucracy in charge.

Making Proud Choices! has nothing to do with promoting health. It is about promoting sex. It does little to protect your child from STDs…

Think about it! Using condoms is counter-intuitive. A boy must have an erection in order to put a condom on. By that time, he is too stimulated to remember all of the steps to correctly and consistently use a condom.

Making Proud Choices! is a popular Comprehensive Sex Ed curriculum that goes far beyond teaching the methods, pros and cons, of contraception. It is about grooming students for sex, by creating neural pathways while their adolescent brains are rapidly developing. It is the typical age for sex and porn addiction.

The Sexual Rights Cartel in South Carolina has worked overtime to get Making Proud Choices! approved. They are part of the much larger National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education which controls sex ed at the local, state and federal levels using your tax money and your children to advance their agenda.

The Charleston County School District’s so-called Health Advisory Committee will vote as early as next week to approve Making Proud Choices! as the only available program in the district for 11-13 year old middle school students. Similar efforts failed two years ago, but the Sexual Rights Cartel is back with a vengeance using a new committee stacked with advocates or those ignorant of the real content. All 13-members are handpicked by the Sexual Rights Cartel.

 ***

The following lesson is from Making Proud Choices! and should be a wake-up call for any parent or taxpayer.

Making Proud Choices! does not teach reproduction, abstinence, or the benefits of marriage. It is all about promoting sex under the guise of STD prevention by teaching fun ways to use condoms.

Making Proud Choices!: “HOW TO MAKE CONDOMS FUN AND PLEASURABLE” 6th Grade & Middle School Activity B Procedure for Teachers (p.150)

Rational: “Helping participants see how they can make condom use fun and pleasurable for themselves and their partners encourages consistent use and a sense of pride and responsibility.”

Teachers are told to “Add the following ideas to the list if they were not already mentioned by the participants.”

“Sex is more fun when condoms are used because…

-You can use condoms as a method of foreplay.

-You can think up sexual fantasy using condoms.

-You can act sexy/sensual when putting condoms on.

-You can hide one on your body and ask your partner to find it.

-You can tease each other sexually while putting on the condom.

-You can have fun putting one on your partner while pretending you are different people or in different situations.

-You feel more relaxed and can really enjoy yourself.

-Condoms make erections last longer.

 

Is it any wonder that students cannot read, write, or understand math, science and history?

Do you really think the Sexual Rights Cartel in schools will get sex education right?

61% Decline in SC Teen Pregnancy Rates!

Who knewTeen Pregnancy Rates in South Carolina have dramatically decreased since abstinence-until-marriage programs were integrated into the state’s public schools in 1995.

Until then, teen pregnancy rates were at an all-time high due to HIV Condoms-Only programs that had saturated the state.

Coincidentally, Heritage Keepers®, a non-profit established in 1995 and the first statewide recipient of Title V, Section 510 Abstinence-Until-Marriage funding under Welfare Reform (1996), was implemented and continues to be the most effective abstinence-until-marriage program in the state, and the nation.

SC Teen Pregnancy Picture

(Pregnancy rates are defined as “the estimated number of the sum of live births, abortions, and fetal deaths.” Therefore, regardless of the outcome of the pregnancy, rates have decreased drastically.)

The Planned Parenthood Sex Ed Network, and the complicit media, certainly do not want you to know this and, in fact, they are taking credit for all drops in national teen pregnancy rates, even for the almost 75% of teens (15-17) who have not had sex! (CDC)

Using CDC’s own data, if only a fraction of the 25% of teens (15-17) nationally, who are currently sexually active used condoms, or birth control, then it stands to reason that the pregnancy rates would decrease.

But, there is no way the amazing decreases in teen pregnancies nationally would, or could, be primarily due to contraception!

imagesCA4NUD1CIt is a matter of common sense and biology, that not having sex (abstinence) is the best way to decrease pregnancies and it is by far the safest method. Teens are absolutely capable and willing to abstain if they are given the medically accurate, age appropriate information that they need and the skills to set high standards for their behavior.

Certified Heritage Keepers® Educators have taught in schools that also provide condoms-only programs. Those so-called “safe sex” programs have never deterred the staff at Heritage Keepers®, who believe that, regardless of sexual history or sexual orientation, every student deserves to know the benefits of marriage, the benefits of abstinence-until-marriage, and to learn the skills to achieve their goals.

This is why a year after the Heritage Keepers® program, students abstain at a rate 3 times greater than students not receiving the program. Even when students are being exposed to Sexual Foreplay programs in the same schools! Students know the difference between real abstinence and counterfeit abstinence programs.

Students who are abstaining, or want to abstain, feel validated in their decisions just by knowing that Heritage Keepers® is in their school and community! And, teens, who learn that they can have real control over their lives, want to avoid the sexual pressures in their culture, and escape the DRAMA, poverty and shattered dreams that sex outside of marriage can bring.

Heritage Keepers® continues to be the ONLY Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education program on the US HHS list of proven effective Evidence-based programs. It continues to be the ONLY proven effective Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program listed that changes teen attitudes and behavior regarding abstinence until marriage.

Don’t be fooled by imitation Abstinence Education programs! If the programs in your schools and community do not promote marriage and abstinence until marriage, they are not teaching boundaries and neuro-science tells us that teens need boundaries for healthy brain development and to reach their potential.

Abstinence-Until-Marriage programs, when implemented effectively by educators who believe in what they are teaching, can and will reduce teen pregnancies and that means fewer single teen moms struggling to make ends meet.

For the already drained taxpayers, it means fewer reasons for lawmakers to increase taxes to support these fragile families. 

South Carolina has a long way to go to aleviate poverty due to out-of-wedlock births, but teen pregnancy rates (15-17) are going in the right direction.

Check out Heritage Keepers® today so that your state, your church’s youth group, and your community can also get on the right road to success.

 

 

Time to “Opt Out” of Sex Class?

Stop_SignMost sex ed in public schools has nothing to do with promoting  health. It does not promote abstinence from sex and it does not protect teens from STDs. Sex ed goes far beyond teaching the methods of contraception. In many cases, it is all about grooming immature students into a sexualized life-style, while their brains are developing.

When school starts, there will be a stack of forms and consents for parents to sign. There may be a passive consent form asking your permission to teach your child sex ed, without specifying the name of the program, content or intent. If you do not sign it, your child will be sent to sex class. Only if you tell them to “Opt Out” your child, will they be spared.

Parents (and taxpayers) need to call their school districts  and ask to view the entire contents of all sex education curricula being used. Make sure they give you the teacher’s manual, student workbooks, handouts, DVDs and posters.

Obviously, this will take time so you need to plan several hours, or do it as a team with each adult viewing different pieces of the curricula. Take notes. Write down page numbers and quotes from the pages. When you see something disturbing, get a partner to witness it and write it down, verbatim.

It is important for you to document what you see from the actual curricula, otherwise you will be accused of making it up.

One only has to see these programs and lessons for themselves, to understand that they are all about promoting sex, sexual rights, and increasing the profit margins of the sex and abortion industries.

The public schools are failing to teach our kids how to read, write, or understand math, science and history. Teachers often complain that they cannot teach students after they have had sex class. No wonder!

Students are being groomed for sex and dumbed down into sexual machines that cannot think for themselves. What better way to control the masses?

The following quotes are from Making Proud Choices! and should be a wake-up call for any reasonable parent or taxpayer. Making Proud Choices! teaches 11-13 year old middle school student how to make sex with condoms fun and pleasurable. It calls itself a “Safer-Sex Approach,” but the sexual foreplay they suggest would spread bodily fluids and STDs such as Syphilis, Herpes and HPV, which are transmitted skin to skin.

Making Proud Choices! does not teach reproduction, abstinence, or the benefits of marriage. It is all about promoting sex under the guise of condoms and STD prevention.

The following lesson is all about normalizing sex with and among minor children and encouraging tolerance towards those who want to have sex. Notice that the idea of “protected sex” is paramount. Abstinence is totally missing from this lesson.

Making Proud Choices!: Attitude statements about condom and contraception use for 6th Grade/Middle School (pg. 70)

1. Attitude: “It would be embarrassing to go to the drug store to get birth control.”

Answer: “(Even though it may be embarrassing, you have to work through it because a pregnancy can be more embarrassing.)”

 2. Attitude: “Using condoms would kill the mood and ruin sexual pleasure.”

Answer: “(Condoms can be fun and pleasurable if you know the skills to make them that way.)”

3. Attitude: “Girls who carry condoms are easy/slutty.”

Answer: “(Girls who carry condoms are smart, responsible, proud and safe.)”

4. Attitude: “Refusing to have sex if my partner will not use a condom is hard to do.”

Answer: “(Refusing unsafe sex is the proud responsible thing to do.)”

5.  Attitude: “It would be easy to discuss contraceptive methods and condom use with my boyfriend or girlfriend.

Answer: “(It is easy when your mind is made up and you know why you want to be safe.)”

  • Condoms make erections last longer.

Following are more Making Proud Choices! pages in the teacher manual:

Pg. 38-40 Teachers “norm” the classroom and get kids to agree not to talk about what happens in class when they leave.

Pg. 60  Abstinence is the same as safer sex.

Pg. 62 Pros about contraception, but no cons listed.

Pg. 66 Even for students who practice abstinence, they are told to use birth control as a back up.

Pg. 70, 85, 91 Instructions about fun, pleasurable sexual foreplay with condoms. This is beyond teaching “about” contraception and outside most state laws governing sex ed.

Pg. 73 Poster of STDs. HPV is missing.  Medically Inaccurate Info

Pg. 74, 8 & 10 Students are told that “anyone can get STDs.” Students who abstain will not get STDs.  Medically Inaccurate Info

Pg. 75 Condoms protect from STDs. Medically Inaccurate Info

Pg. 76-92  Condom skills classes to break down natural defenses about sex and condoms. Teaches about “kiddie condoms” for little penises.

Pg. 91 Students are warned not to drink alcohol or take drugs, but taught sexual foreplay.

Pg. 108 Green, Yellow and Red Light Behaviors. Some of the Green and Yellow light behaviors, which many teens will think they can handle, include: 

  • Having sex with a person who is having sex with other people
    • Oral sex on a guy with a condom
    • Anal sex with a condom
    • Mutual masturbation
    • Vaginal sex with a condom
    • Oral sex on a girl using a dental dam
    • Having sex with multiple partners and using a condom (group sex and/or serial partners)
    • Having sex with only one person (monogamous) [this normalizes serial monogamy]

This should get any parent or taxpayer started! There are many more pages throughout the curriculum to discover and expose. This means there is no way that schools can just not teach a lesson. It is polluted throughout.

These programs do not include anything that would teach your child to avoid risky behaviors, yet they are being used in schools, where Johnny can’t read, write, do math or understand basic science.

Even if your kids are grown, what about your grandchildren? What about your taxes spent to promote these programs.

What will you do? You are the last, but should be the first, defender of your children. You may still have the power to opt out your child from sex ed. Why not? If just 15 families in each school opted their children out of sex ed it would send a huge message to the school district.

If you feel it would embarrass your child to be outside the sex class, then you may be the one with the problem. Your child will be far more influenced by the content of these type classes than by going to the library or study hall.

You are the last defense for your children. If you don’t Parent Up for them now, no one else will.

sexting 2

What would your teen do if their sex teacher taught them how to “enhance the mood” for sex with condoms by:

  • Using extra lubrication inside and outside the condom,
  • Using different colors and types/textures,
  • Telling their partner that using a condom can make a man last longer,
  • Letting the partner put the condom on the penis,
  • Having a sense of humor and making jokes,
  • Putting lubricant on the tip of the penis to increase sensitivity or use lubricated condoms,
  • Talking about it in advance, and
  • Having condoms open and ready to use?

sexting 4

 If your teens are allowed to have a phone at school, the above classroom “instructions” would be sexted all over campus within minutes.

 The entire climate of the school is sexualized.

Forget about learning anything else that week!

 After school, kids are sexting each other to “enhance the mood” and practice before you get home from work.  But, don’t worry because the sex teacher also tells them:

  • To only buy condoms that are latex or polyurethane.
  • To not use condoms that are “glow in the dark.” “They are only gag gifts.”
  • That they are not “endorsing sexual activity among teenagers!”

What is the sex program? Making Proud Choices! Module 7 Developing Condom Use Skills, and similar instructions are also in Be Proud! Be Responsible! for High School

Making Proud Choices! is a “Safer-Sex Approach” curriculum and Be Proud! Be Responsible! is an “Evidence-based Intervention.” Neither are abstinence education programs, yet school districts and parents are being told that they are age-appropriate Comprehensive Health Education programs that fulfill their state Law.

Planned Parenthood Sex Ed Advocates are playing with our teens lives. Everyone knows that teens text each a lot, and with 75% of teens saying that their peers text and drive, it is not a stretch to predict that teens are in danger of sexting, driving and having wrecks.

Not only are teens, and their parents, duped into believing that sex can be made safe by engaging in sexual foreplay and intercourse as long as condoms are used, they are being enticed into sexting in order to “enhance the mood” prior to getting it on!

Parents, the only “proud and responsible” thing to do is to kick these Sexual Foreplay programs (Comprehensive Sex Ed) out of your schools!

Summerville, SC: Sex Ed Ploys

Summerville 1Summerville 2

After attending 2 orchestrated meetings this week in Summerville that should have exposed the Planned Parenthood Sex Ed agenda, I am convinced that the power brokers in the school district are either in denial or complicit in promoting sexual foreplay education to our 11-17 year old youth.

The first meeting was a forum for candidates running for state office. The audience was asked to submit questions which were completely ignored if they pertained to challenging the sexually explicit sex ed programs being used in the middle and high schools.

Therefore, Rep. Jenny Horne and Rep. Chris Murphy got off having to explain why they are promoting 4-Planned Parenthood Sex Ed programs in Summerville schools and why they are pushing for the state to mandate at least 11 of these programs throughout the state.

These Saul Alinsky tactics also prevented the other candidates from outing Horne and Murphy. Slick!

The next meeting, several miles away, was the district School Board meeting. Their agenda indicated that there would be a report on their “workshop” held last week – where questions, comments and discussions were not allowed – to explain how they were going to change how they use Making Proud Choices! and other sex ed programs in the district to make them more “palatable.”

At this “workshop” Superintendent Joseph Pye stated:

“We have shared this (Making Proud Choices! sex ed curriculum) with [Rep] Jenny Horne and she is fine with what we are teaching.”

Last week’s “workshop” was quickly put together and did not allow for adequate public awareness. As a result, very few people attended and those that did were not allowed to participate as one would expect.

Back to the School Board meeting… after 2 hours of business, the Board chair asked if anyone had signed up prior to the meeting to speak. Since no one had, the topic of sex education was brushed aside and ignored.  The meeting was over. No one knew that they had to sign up to speak on the topic in order for the Board to follow their own agenda!

So much for transparency and accountability!

 

 

 

SC: “Making Poor Choices” for Minors

Stop_Sign

Parents, if you have children enrolled in Charleston County (SC) middle schools, especially at Zucker, Morningside, or Northwoods, (and the high school they feed into, Stall HS) you need to know that your child is targeted with one of the worst Safer Sex/Sexual Foreplay curricula in the nation.

Making Proud Choices!, listed on the Planned Parenthood Sex Education website, is on the fast track to be taught to your child beginning in January 2014.

 Unless you say NO! to the School Board and Principals, your child will learn how to:

  • make condoms fun and pleasurable,
  • use condoms as a method of foreplay,
  • act sexy/sensual when putting condoms on,
  • hide condoms on your body and ask your partner to find it,
  • tease each other sexually while putting on a condom,
  • have fun putting one on your partner, while pretending you are different people or in different situations,
  • feel more relaxed and really enjoy yourself, and
  • use condoms to make erections last longer!

This is from Making Proud Choices!: How to Make Condoms Fun and Pleasurable, pg. 150. While Making Proud Choices! claims to be contraception education, in reality it is using contraception to teach minors how to have fun and pleasurable sex so that they will use condoms.

Making Proud Choices is exactly what it says it is, “A Safer-Sex Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STD & HIV Prevention.” It doesn’t even claim to teach middle school students to abstain from sex, although “abstinence” is mentioned as a disclaimer in some of the lessons.

When members of the so-called Health Advisory Committee were challenged about the content and that it encourages sex for minors, they had the audacity to say that, “Making Proud Choices does not encourage middle school students to have sex. It just gives them the information they need for when they decide to start having sex.”

To garner support for Making Proud Choices!, the proponents made many impossible promises. (Kinda like the passing of Obamacare.) They promised that they would make the primary focus “abstinence” and the secondary focus “contraception.”

There are some real problems with those promises:

  1. They cannot and will not take a sexual foreplay program, and turn it into an “abstinence focused” program? This is a ruse.
  2. The Planned Parenthood Network wants you to focus on the Abstinence vs. Contraception debate, rather than the sexual foreplay that they are teaching your child.
  3. South Carolina is going in the wrong direction. CDC Data indicates that 80% of minors nationally have not had sex, so why are we teaching sexual foreplay to 100% of all minors in school districts when they should be focused on academics, sports and being a kid.
  4. SC Law states that minors under the age of 14 CANNOT consent to sex. However, protecting children’s sexual health was deemed so important that the age of protection was extended for children up to age 16 (see Section 16-3-655 in SC’s code of laws). These laws were created to protect minors from being abused and from being exploited by persons older than them. (Should we also disregard laws that restrict kids from buying alcohol and tobacco, just because some do?)

So, if minors cannot legally consent to sex, why are we allowing Planned Parenthood Zealots (including New Morning Foundation and the SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy) and the school districts to exploit and seduce our kids into having sex?

The Sexual Foreplay Cartels will not stop until parents and taxpayers demand it.
