Statesville, North Carolina: Making Proud Choices?

MPC CurriculumThis is another Reading Lesson from Making Proud Choices! 4th Edition. Page 149:

Facilitators are told to teach your 13 year old daughters, AND THE BOYS IN THE SAME CLASSROOM, how they can be involved in “stimulating positive attitudes towards condom use” by “sexual arousal, rolling condom on, intercourse, orgasm, holding onto rim, removing condom, and relaxation.”

[She] can also buy condoms and have them ready.”

If the male/boy “loses his erection after putting on a condom, and before intercourse, what could the couple do?” Couple?

Your 13 year old daughters, and their boyfriends, are instructed to, “take off condom, continue playing and stimulating one another, relax, and enjoy the fun. After awhile, put a new condom on as part of the play.”

TELL ME HOW THIS SEXUAL ACTIVITY IS NOT SUPPOSED TO SPREAD STDS?OR, GET YOUR DAUGHTERs PREGNANT, IF THEY ARE NOT ON HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL?

THIS IS SEXUAL FOREPLAY, BY DEFINITION. Miriam-Webster: “sexual stimulation of one’s partner usually as a prelude to sexual intercourse” and “mutual sexual stimulation preceding intercourse.”

Making Proud Choices! does not just teach students about methods of contraception, pros and cons, as most parents believe. Making Proud Choices! is all about teaching minors how to engage in sexual activity that really could get them pregnant and increase their risks of STD/HIV!

If you live in North Carolina, be alert and aware that Making Proud Choices! will be on the docket for Monday night in Statesville. See news here…!

The Iredell-Statesville School Board will decide whether to pass this Sexual Foreplay Education program for all 9th grade students. Over the past few years, Making Proud Choices! has been provided only on a voluntary basis for after school or weekend programs. Students have received $100 incentives to participate. This $100 is your federal tax money. Plus, the district received $4 Million in Federal Funding to agree to the program.

Monday night, Statesville, NC. Show UP! Speak Out! against this SEXUAL FOREPLAY program. Even if you don’t speak, show up. Numbers count.

The Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Network in NC is saying that they are willing to accept an OPT IN compromise in order to pass it. Will parents OPT IN their children for the $100 incentive?

Even if it is passed as only an OPT IN (students must have parent’s written permission to take it), those students will be talking/sexting? with students who’s parents do not want their children in the program. It will set up a steamy sexual climate in the schools and sexual climate is a major predictor of teen sexual activity.

Don’t let school districts get away with telling you that you can just OPT OUT  OR OPT IN your child from these kinds of programs. Your child and their peer group would have to be opted out to protect them, at all.

Why not OPT OUT the entire school district?

Role of Government: Teaching Sexual Foreplay?

Next month, the Statesville-Iredell School Board in Statesville, North Carolina will decide whether Making Proud Choices!, a Safer Sex, sexual foreplay curriculum, that targets 11-13 year old minors, will be used for all 9th graders in their schools.

School Board member, Bryan Shoemaker, has taken the time to review Making Proud Choices! and is disturbed by its content. In an interview with Charlotte, NC WSOCTV, he expressed his concerns that Making Proud Choices! goes too far when teaching kids about sex.

Shoemaker says that Making Proud Choices! is about “using different types of lubricants; a lot of what they are talking about are methods of foreplay which are totally unacceptable in the 9th grade.”

Making Proud Choices! has been taught in Iredell County over the past few years for after-school programs thanks to a $4 million grant from the federal government. Each participating child is given $100 for completing the program. As you would imagine, attendance has been high and proponents brag about its success in driving down pregnancy rates for teens. But, are they playing with the data?

It is common for supporters of safe sex education (the Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Network) to lump all of the pregnancy data for teens into a broad 13-19 year age group. However, this manipulates the data, and the public, by claiming that teen pregnancy rates are much higher for younger teens than is fact.

If one is interested in the impact of middle and high school sex education on teen pregnancy rates, then using data from 15-17 year old teens is more appropriate and accurate. Research shows that teen pregnancy rates increase dramatically beginning at 18 and 19. After all, once a teen is emancipated at age 18, they are no longer the legal responsibility of school districts, or their parents.

If the rates of teen pregnancy are already dropping statewide and nationwide, then success based on a single program cannot be assumed. In the case of 15-17 year old teens in Iredell County and North Carolina, the data, indicates that teen pregnancies declined at the same rate as the state’s during the period 2000-2012. According to the data, the pregnancy rates in Iredell County were at its lowest in 2010, and it appears that 15-17 year old teen pregnancies in the county actually increased to the state level in 2012. In summary, teen pregnancy rates for 15-17 year old teens have not decreased more in Iredell County vs. NC and there has been no reliable research to show that Making Proud Choices! or any other single program is responsible for the impact.

As reported, Iredell-Statesville School District received $4 million for the Making Proud Choices! program to be taught in after-school programs. Now that the funding is running out they are pushing to expand the program into all of the 9th grade classes. Is the federal government buying their way into school districts by funding programs like Making Proud Choices!?

Why is the government using taxpayer money and taxpayer infrastructure to teach students sexual foreplay techniques in public schools?

While most states require that methods of contraception be taught in high school, it is outside the scope of most, if not all state laws, to teach students how to pleasure each other, regardless of age.

Do Legislators ever read the curricula they are voting to mandate in our schools?

The role of school districts is to teach students how to learn, how to be proficient in core subject matter, and how to become self-sufficient, productive members of society so that they can establish future healthy families that will also do the same. Teaching sexual foreplay techniques is not a core mission of our education system. Or is it?

Parents need to demand that schools teach only those subjects that further their child’s academic achievements. And, legislators and other elected officials need to actually read the Safe Sex curricula being used or promoted in their states and school districts.

It only takes a few good people to stop the Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Network in a school district. Just expose them by reading – verbatim – what they are teaching our children.
