Planned Parenthood Has Sex Ed Teachers?

Who knewWhy are parents protesting tonight at a California school board meeting about Planned Parenthood staff teaching Sex Ed to their children?

East Bay school district is under fire from parents after they learned that Planned Parenthood educators are actually teaching sex ed to their children. Another article revealed that this is nothing new and that the Superintendent really doesn’t care. Opt out!:

“The superintendent says Planned Parenthood has been a consultant for comprehensive sex ed for 10 years. Parents have the right to opt out of the course and this fall only one student did.”

Where were these parents 10 years ago when Comprehensive Sex Ed got a foothold in their school district?

In some states, taxpayer funded sex programs have been in the schools for over 20 years, taught by public school teachers who have been trained by the Planned Parenthood Sex Networks.

Planned Parenthood/SIECUS and their National Sexuality Standards have been operating under the radar for decades, masquerading as “comprehensive sex ed” and teaching explicit “safe sex” and anti-marriage programs.

This is the Progressives’ MO. Get established through policies, regulations, and precedent. Then change the state laws, mandating only Planned Parenthood Sex Programs in all school districts. This allows school districts to claim that “this is the way we’ve done it for 10 years!” Nothing new here!

For now, parents can opt out, but few do. After all, these are the same parents who 10-20 years ago were probably being taught how to have “safe sex.” They have grown up never knowing a day without Planned Parenthood, Family Planning, abortion, sexual rights and political correctness. They have been brainwashed into thinking the schools know best and that they are too stupid to know what is best for their own child.

So, what’s the problem?  After 10 years under the radar, Planned Parenthood is even more emboldened. They are no longer hiding behind Health or PE teachers in school districts, Advocates for Youth, the Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy or other “non-profits” in the Planned Parenthood Sex Networks. They are loud and proud.

Those of us in the Healthy Family Formation Coalition have been sounding the alarm about these so-called “safe sex” programs since they started in the early 90’s. Now, many school districts are saturated with them. Planned Parenthood Sex Ed is part of their infrastructure, and the entire Network needs to be defunded and dismantled. “Opt In” policies need to be considered to require parents to approve the sex ed being taught to their child.

Yes, we tried to warn you. Yes, you can opt your child out. Few parents do.

Maybe in another 10 years?

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.

 

 

Shelby Knox Exposed!

sexed-planned-parenthood-lila-roseReports are coming in about tonight’s Shelby Knox event in Charleston, South Carolina. We are not surprised.

It was NOT a full house by any means, but swarming with folks from the Planned Parenthood Network. One woman gushed,

“You won’t find more Progressives any place else!”

The event was orchestrated by the League of Women Voters to influence the Charleston County School Board elections in the fall. There are 5 open seats for the November elections.

One reporter asked Shelby Knox, “Do you think it’s loving to confirm someone in behavior that may be harmful to them?” Shelby paused and stumbled around and didn’t really answer the question. She was really taken aback!

The Education of Shelby Knox, her award winning documentary, included a lot of footage bashing True Love Waits, a respected faith-based abstinence-until-marriage education program used mostly in Baptist Churches.

If you did not get to read our recent article exposing Shelby Knox, here it is: http://wp.me/p3Jbg1-kX  

Again, Shelby Knox and the Planned Parenthood Network are expected to bash faith-based programs that promote abstinence until marriage and faithfulness within marriage. That’s just who they are.

But, to bash Evidence-based, Science-based abstinence until marriage education that has been proven effective and approved by US Health and Human Services is simply ludicrous.

Beware Planned Parenthood Sex Education in your schools. Consider the source!

Is “Making A Difference!” telling a whopper?

Burger KingJust because a product says it’s a “burger”, a “cheese food”, “chocolatey” or a “meaty” dog food, does not mean that it has real beef, cheese, chocolate or meat in it. These are terms used to sell a product that may not meet the FDA’s definition for the products they  seek to imitate.

The same is true for many so-called abstinence education programs, billed as “abstinence-based”, an “abstinence approach”, or “abstinence-first”, when they have little abstinence content or behavioral results.

According to analysts at the Heritage Foundation, Making A Difference! and other such programs have at most 5% abstinence and 0% marriage promotion, but 95% other ingredients, such as safe sex, sexual foreplay, condoms and contraception/birth control education, condom negotiation skills, and promotion of alternative sexual practices (oral and anal sex) and uncommitted relationships, rather than life-long healthy marriages. A program that does not meet the Congressional definition of abstinence education, and contains questionable content and/or poor, if any, behavioral change towards increasing abstinent behaviors over a 12 month period, should not be allowed to call itself an abstinence education program.

It is not the real deal and many school districts, desperate for a program that will decrease teen sex, pregnancies and disease, are not getting what they hoped for.

Making A Difference!, states on its cover that it is an “Evidence-Based, Abstinence Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STD and HIV Prevention.” However, according to the evaluation on the US HHS website, Making A Difference! only delayed sex among its 11-13 year old virgin participants for 3 months and had no significant impact at 6 or 12 months after the program. For sexually active minors, it had no significant impact on the frequency of sexual intercourse, nor the correct/consistent use of condoms, nor even the use of condoms, at all. How is this program suppose to stop the spread of STD/HIV or reduce the rate of pregnancies?

It is the Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Networks, PhDs, great marketing by Select Media, and millions of dollars in federal funding that have created the illusion that Making A Difference! is a quality product, with positive behavioral outcomes.

Making A Difference! is not what it seems to be. And, taxpayer funds are being spent to indoctrinate 11-13 year old minors, who cannot legally consent to sex, into thinking that sex with or among their peers is normal and healthy. Making A Difference! in middle schools paves the way for students to receive even more sexually graphic programs like Making Proud Choices! and Be Proud! Be Responsible!, all written by the same PhDs, and published by their company, Select Media. Students will receive even more detailed, hands-on, instructions about sexual foreplay, making condoms fun and pleasurable, and how to use condoms and dental dams to “protect” themselves against STDs.

Check out the programs in your schools, find out if they are listed on the US HHS website, but then look up their outcomes and their own websites. Don’t be duped into “buying” a bogus, so-called abstinence program that is really teaching children how to engage in sexual activity.

Exposed: “Making A Difference!”

Making a Differnce

Making A Difference!, one of the sex education curricula in the news, out of Kansas and South Carolina, plainly states on its cover that it is an “Evidence-Based, Abstinence Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STD and HIV Prevention.”

The authors, Jemmott/Jemmott and their Select Media company, are responsible for this Sexual Foreplay curriculum, as well as, Making Proud Choices!, and Be Proud! Be Responsible!, in school districts across the nation.

The same sexually explicit content found on the Making A Difference! poster can be found in Module 2, pg. 65 of the Facilitator Manual, and similar verbiage is repeated on pg. 149, 150 in Making Proud Choices! and pg. 54 in Be Proud! Be Responsible!

Proponents of Making A Difference! defend its poster by saying that it’s content is taken out of context. So, let’s look at the context. The RATIONALE for this “brainstorming” lesson in Making A Difference! is in a sidebar on page 65 and states:

“Understanding that there are many behaviors that express sexual feelings help participants choose sexual behaviors that do not result in pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection.”

So, 11-13 year old minors are instructed to “choose sexual behaviors” and given a list of options to “brainstorm” about in class with mixed genders present. This lesson is all about introducing and normalizing sex acts to adolescents. As long as the risk of a pregnancy or STD is reduced, the sex act is OK. This is classic condom use and sexual foreplay instruction and it is found in most of the Jemmott/Jemmott and Select Media programs.

Where is the so-called “Abstinence Approach?” It appears to teach kids that, while abstinence is the best choice (disclaimer), PROTECTED SEX is just as safe when it comes to preventing pregnancy and disease.

Is this medically accurate, age appropriate instruction?

If this were in any other setting, there could be criminal charges against the perpetrators for sexual exploitation of minors. As it is, public school districts and their teachers are exempt when instructing your children about sexually explicit subjects under the guise of Pregnancy and STD Prevention.

These types of curricula play with your child’s mind and mold him/her towards sexual exploration. The content also labels mostly innocent behaviors as “sexual” so that the boundaries between nonsexual behaviors gets blurred with sexual foreplay behaviors.

Behaviors such as hugging, talking, saying “I like you,” dancing, holding hands, kissing, caressing, and massage are listed as “sexual behaviors” along with oral sex, sexual fantasy, anal sex, touching each others genitals, vaginal intercourse and grinding.

They are all on the same list.

Adolescents have a difficult time with boundaries, as it is. What are they to think when their teacher states that these innocent behaviors are also “sexual?” Why shouldn’t they “cross the line” into those other more exciting sexual behaviors?” After all, they are all listed as “sexual behaviors.”

Sex education in the schools has been out of bounds for decades and our culture is reflecting it. The Jemmotts, Select Media, and many other authors and publishing/distribution companies have made fortunes with federal CDC HIV funding contracts and by peddling their wares to school districts across the nation.

The federal government and the Planned Parenthood/SIECUS Networks continue to use your tax money to fund and approve these programs and to influence legislation to mandate them in all schools.

It is all about the money. The earlier an adolescent begins to have sex, the more sexual partners they will have, and the more sexual partners they have the more likely they will get pregnant and have an abortion.    It is all about the money.

No one cares about your children more than you do. Right? Sexual Climate and Peer Group are significant predictors of teen sexual activity. And, your school may be providing the perfect sexual climate (cesspool) and negative peer pressure to entice and seduce your child and their friends into engaging in sexual behaviors.

Now that you know, what will you do about it?

“Rights to Sex” TRUMP “Right to Life”

InALifeSafe Sex advocates say that humans should have the Right to Sex, but if that sexual encounter results in a pregnancy, that child does not have a Right to Life. Does any of this make sense to you? Sex is no longer the way that humans make babies or for marital intimacy, it is solely for hedonistic entertainment.

Safe Sex advocates support and teach many of the programs found on the Planned Parenthood and SIECUS websites. If pressed, their Networks claim that they DO teach abstinence in their programs. That they teach it at the beginning of every sex class!  Just before they teach minors that it is healthy and normal for kids their age to know how to sexually stimulate each others genitals.

Safe Sex-only programs like Making a Difference!, Making Proud Choices!, Pono Choices!, Be Proud! Be Responsible!, It’s Your Game, and Teen Outreach Program, are creating chaos, not only in AZ, CAHI, OH, OR, KS, MS, NC, ND, NY, SC, TN, TX, UT, but in the lives of our children and their families across the nation. Many of these programs have been in our schools for decades. However, under the Obama administration, they have been given unfettered access and funding, which is now increasing public exposure and scrutiny.

The basic premise of Safe Sex-only Education is that sexual activity, exploration and engagement is a Human Right from birth. (Reisman, Grossman) Sexual relationships are not to be controlled, but to be hotly pursued, because they are part of being human. In their minds, to do otherwise would hinder “healthy” human growth and development. Sex is a human right, and anything goes, at any age, with anyone, with anything, and with any gender. Whatever.

With this extreme Safe Sex ideology in mind, is it any wonder that proponents of Safe Sex for minors and school age teens, are lobbying state legislators to mandate Safe Sex-only education? And, they are demanding that taxpayers fund the government infrastructure, public school systems and universities that will further institutionalize it in our culture.

Is it any wonder that these same Safe Sex advocates view abstinence-until-marriage education programs as outdated, discriminatory, and a violation of the Sexual Rights every human should be entitled? This is why evidence-based abstinence-until-marriage programs, like Heritage Keepers®, are demonized and outlawed in many states.

Teaching kids to abstain from sexual activity, to wait until marriage, and to form their families within a life-long, mutually monogamous, faithful relationship, commonly known as marriage, is just ridiculous in their minds. Sex is considered a “sacred” Human Rights issue worthy of Laws and Regulations to protect it.

Unless parents and faith leaders stand up to stop this, our children and our nation are racing towards absolute chaos.

To postpone some of the chaos, Planned Parenthood and Obamacare have teamed up, again, to control any pesky pregnancies that might result from all of the Safe Sex being taught. This is why taxpayers are now forced to fund contraception, hormonal birth control, and abortions as yet, another  entitlement program.

But, hormones and abortion cannot stop STDs and HIV. In fact, there is evidence that hormonal birth control makes it easier for women to contract STDs! Other than abstinence, correct and consistent condom use is the only method that has been effective at reducing, but not eliminating, the transmission of HIV and some STDs. Even then, there is no way to measure correct and consistent condom use on a large scale. Therefore, there is no real way to prove, or disprove, whether a Safe Sex program really works, or not.

But that doesn’t matter, as long as access to students is not denied.

Sex education is no longer about teaching reproductive health so that teens understand their bodies. It is not really about teaching kids how to use contraception and birth control anymore, either. It is about how to reduce HIV/STDs by teaching kids how to have fun and pleasurable safe sex experiences while using condoms and dental dams. Otherwise, the masses (our children and grandchildren) that they say must be taught about their Sexual Rights, will not use condoms to keep HIV/STDs under control.

What about the STDs that condoms are less effective at preventing, like HPV, Herpes, and Syphilis? Those are considered normal, acceptable risks. Besides, more government entitlements are available through Big Pharma for the HPV vaccine, Herpes drugs and antibiotics. Forget the cervical cancer and the infertility that results from these normal STDs.

If we the people, do not stop this madness, then America is over. There has never been a culture that thrived under these circumstances. They have all fallen and disappeared.

It only takes one person in each school district, community, state, or church to stand up and expose the Safe Sex agenda. Even normal liberals do not want their children exposed to this kind of pornographic indoctrination.

Most of us are in denial or blind, until we see it for ourselves. Find out what is in your child’s school. Show it to other parents. Read it out loud to elected officials.

Ask them if this is good enough for their children and their friends.

 

Real Sex Ed Debate: “Contraception” is Sexual Foreplay

Featured

Stop_SignYear 2014 will usher in new Sex Ed Laws in many states, requiring that “contraception” be taught in middle and high school. But, is it “contraception” or sexual foreplay?

Most mandated Sex Ed today reads more like steamy sex therapy sessions than teen pregnancy and STD prevention education. Under the guise of “safe sex,” many curricula teach that as long as condoms are used, consensual sex is the “new standard” for sexual activity, not marriage.  

Sex Ed curricula, such as Making A Difference!, Making Proud Choices!, Be Proud! Be Responsible!, Safer Choices, Teen Outreach Program (TOP), Wise Guys! and others can be found on the Planned Parenthood and SIECUS websites. They have very little verbiage, if any, about the benefits of abstaining from sexual activity and do not mention marriage as the ideal context for sexual activity.

Consensual sex is the “new norm.”

These curricula teach students how to engage in “safe” sexual foreplay including oral sex and intercourse, how to experience the pleasures of sex, and about ways to eroticize sex, all while purportedly teaching condom skills to prevent STD transmission. 

Sex, and more sex, is the goal and “safety” is the Trojan Horse.

The problem is, sex outside of marriage can never be as safe as sex within a healthy, faithful marriage. This vital message is being censored from our teens.

The current Sex Ed debate is no longer about whether to teach Abstinence or Contraception. It is about whether to explain about methods of “contraception” or to teach “hands on” sexual foreplay skills under the guise of “contraception” education. 

Unlike Abstinence-until-Marriage education, so-called “Safer Sex” programs are not strictly regulated by the federal government. They are given free rein to teach anything they can get away with.

“Safer Sex” programs are designed to make teens feel “proud,” “responsible,” and more comfortable about having consensual sex as long as they use condoms or dental dams. But, are “Safe Sex” programs safe? Unfortunately, many STDs, such as HPV, Herpes, and Syphilis are transmitted outside of the “protection” of condoms and dental dams. And, since condoms cannot be used unless the male is sexually stimulated, it is reasonable to think that there is a lot of skin-to-skin (STD transmission) contact prior to using a condom or dental dam.

Do “Safe Sex” programs delay sex initiation, as they claim? Under the influence of sexual stimulation, it is counter intuitive to expect sex to be delayed and for condoms to be used correctly and consistently even by adults, much less impulsive teens.

The most respected researcher in the field of teen sexual activity is Stan Weed, PhD of the Institute for Research and Evaluation. Weed’s report on Teen Pregnancy Prevention programs in 2010 revealed that very few “Safe Sex” condom programs were effective at increasing abstinence or condom use for any length of time. In “Federally Funded Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs: Not What They Claim to Be.”, Weed states that out of 28 programs approved in 2010,

“Only 2 TPP [Teen Pregnancy Prevention] programs demonstrated the ability to increase adolescents’ rate of consistent condom use for at least one year. Neither was a school-based program.”

Weed’s critique also calls out these TPP programs for their sexually explicit content, teaching “safe” alternative sexual behaviors (sexual foreplay), and that “Abstaining from sex is not a primary focus in the majority of TPP programs.”

Parents and elected officials need to study the Sex Ed Laws of their state, as well as all Sex Ed curricula approved under that Law. Afterwards, they may want to provide their own reading lessons for Legislators and School Board members.

In preparation, consider the following questions and decide whether instruction is being required or if, by default, “Safe(r) Sex” is allowed to slip in through the loopholes.

1.  Does your state’s Sex Ed Law include verbiage requiring the teaching of  “contraception” and/or “Safer Sex” for middle and high schools?

  • Does the Law define “contraception” or is “contraception” used broadly to include “birth control” hormones (Plan B, Emergency Contraception) and devices (Emergency IUDs) along with referrals to Planned Parenthood/Family Planning Clinics?
  • Does the Law define “Safe(r) Sex?”
  • Does the Law require that approved Sex Ed programs fulfill the Pregnancy Prevention Education and Reproductive Education requirements to be used in the schools? Programs like Making a Difference! and Making Proud Choices! do not fulfill all requirements of most state laws for Pregnancy Prevention or Reproductive Education, therefore other programs must be supplemented.

2. Does your Sex Ed Law include any verbiage requiring the teaching of sexual foreplay techniques including the use of dental dams for oral sex, eroticizing condom use with lubricants and detailed instructions for regaining erections? If not, is there any language to prevent such teaching?

3. Does your Sex Ed Law include any verbiage requiring teachers to use visual imagery or sexual fantasies to help students pretend they are somewhere else, or the opposite gender, or with someone else while engaging in sexual activity? Wouldn’t this require a license to practice psychotherapy in the classroom?

4. Does your Sex Ed Law require that abstinence until marriage be taught as the standard for all school age students? Does it loosely define abstinence, which allows “safe sex” curricula to claim that they are  abstinence-based or abstinence-first? If marriage is omitted as a cultural norm from the Law and also from the approved Sex Ed curricula, then there are no boundaries for sexual activity.

5. Who is in charge of making sure that all approved Sex Ed curricula comply with the state Sex Ed Law? Unaccountable bureaucrats?

6. Are there any approved Sex Ed curricula that have “Safe(r) Sex” in their title, on their cover, or part of their content? THIS IS A RED FLAG!

7. Are all approved Sex Ed curricula used in the schools the original evidence-based version evaluated for program effectiveness and listed on the US HHS website? Or, are they “adaptations” of the approved curricula, in order to gain approval? 

8. What are the behavioral outcomes for each approved Sex Ed curriculum used in your state?

  • Is each approved Sex Ed curriculum listed on the US HHS website as being proven effective and evidence-based for Teen Pregnancy Prevention?
    • If the curriculum is an abstinence-until-marriage program, does it significantly increase abstinent behaviors among participants, compared with non-program participants, as measured a year after the program?
    • If the curriculum is an abstinence-based “safer sex” program, does it significantly increase abstinent behaviors among participants, compared with non-program participants, as measured a year after the program?
    • If the curriculum is a “Safe Sex” condom program, does it significantly increase correct and consistent condom use for sexually active students, compared with sexually active non-program participants, as measured a year after the program?

9. Who trains the educators to teach approved Sex Ed curricula in your state?

10. Are there any abstinence-until-marriage curricula approved in your state/district that are listed on the US HHS website as being proven effective and evidence-based for Teen Pregnancy Prevention? If not, why not?

Getting answers to all of these questions will provide a much clearer picture of the sexual climate in your school, school district and state. Our schools should be promoting behaviors that are conducive to learning and achieving academic success. If this is not the case, then much work needs to be done quickly to protect children from sexual influences that can derail their futures.

Get busy!
