“Proud and Responsible” Redefined…Really?

MPC Protest InfoGraphicWhat does “proud” and “responsible” look like in your home? You may be surprised to learn that your child’s sex class teaches that being “proud” and “responsible” has everything to do with their “reproductive rights” to have sex whenever and with whomever they wish.

Plus, with “rights” come “responsibility” and that means making the “proud” decision to use condoms with every act of vaginal, oral and anal sex. Is that what you teach your child about acting “responsibly” and taking “pride” in their in their accomplishments?

(Did you also know that condoms have never ever been FDA approved for oral or anal sex? Yet, sex ed is all about teaching minors, who cannot legally consent to sex, how to have “fun and pleasurable” sex – as long as they use condoms?)

Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of sex ed in America, and their National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education must stop transforming generations into their own image with our tax money.

Making Proud Choices!, listed on the Planned Parenthood website, is a sexually explicit, even erotic, program targeting 11-14 year old minors. SexPerts across the nation say whatever it takes to get into school districts. They claim that Making Proud Choices! is abstinence-based, that anything offensive will be edited, that adaptations are made consistent with local community standards, and that they will even rename the program!

Why make all of these concessions if the original version is so perfect in every way? It isn’t and they know it! None of their “smoke and mirror” promises change the intent of Making Proud Choices!, which is to groom minors for the sex.

Making Proud Choices! teaches minors that they can still be “proud and responsible” while engaging in sexual activity contrary to the standards taught at home, in their churches, and in a healthy society.

Charleston Parents Outraged: Making Proud Choices!

AAmind-in-the-gutterWhile children are out of school and many families are away this summer, the Sexual Rights Agenda presses on to advance yet another sex program for approval in our schools. This time, it is Making Proud Choices! which we have covered many times.

Last week, a public hearing was held by the Charleston County School Board to discuss and vote on the adoption of Making Proud Choices! sex education program. Local and state SexPerts packed the room to support their program. These SexPerts included PhDs from Medical University – Department of Psychiatry, Planned Parenthood, New Morning Foundation, ACLU, and other advocates of Sexual Rights indoctrination in public schools.

Only 1-minute speeches were allowed. The SexPerts spouted typical Planned Parenthood/Sexual Rights talking points, revealing that many had never seen the curriculum in question. They accused protestors of “having their heads in the sand” or “living in a bubble,” while they are the ones living in their ivory towers with their minds in the gutter! They claimed that the program teaches abstinence without revealing that abstinence to them has no timeframe and is nothing more than “avoiding unprotected sex.”

The protestors of Making Proud Choices!, many of whom had spent days researching and reviewing the curriculum, voiced factual opposition based on obscene content, violation of SC Law and common decency standards, and a gross lack of any real prevention education. Most of these protestors actually work in the trenches with real people suffering the consequences of our sexualized culture. They have done their homework.

Ironically, the proponents in the school district used the term “Reproductive Health Education,” instead of the oft criticized term “Comprehensive” or “Sex Education.” Ironic because Making Proud Choices! is void of any education about “Reproduction.” Shouldn’t that be basic?  

“Reproductive Health Education” is about Rights, not Reproduction!

Making Proud Choices! does not teach students the skills to avoid sexual activity, nor does it teach them how to form a future healthy family within marriage. The content and activities clearly intend to encourage and normalize sex among and with minors.

We know that kids are targeted every day with porn on the streets and through media, internet, and smart phones. Why do the SexPerts want to reinforce the exploitation and saturate kids’ minds with even more sex in schools? Schools should be a safe zone for academics, not sexual indoctrination. 

These Sexual Rights Advocates cannot seem to get their “minds out of the gutter” as they create future customers for lucrative sex industries.

Thankfully, the Trustees decided to postpone a vote until the next meeting on Tuesday, August 4th at 9 AM at the School District. They had not seen the curriculum either! They requested a final version with all edits and adaptations. We will see if that happens.

Decent citizens of Charleston County need to speak out against Making Proud Choices!, which is targeting 11-14 year old minor children for a Medical University Psychiatry research project.

Email the Charleston County School Trustees and tell them to VOTE NO! to Making Proud Choices!

Go to the meeting on Tuesday, August 4th to protest this porno-graphic program.

Statesville, NC: Making Poor Choices?

MPC CurriculumParents, if you have children enrolled in the 9th grade in Statesville-Iredell School District (NC), you need to know that your child (a minor) is targeted with one of the worst Safer Sex/Sexual Foreplay curricula in the nation.

Making Proud Choices!, A Safer-Sex Approach to Teen Pregnancy, STD, & HIV Prevention, is also listed on the Planned Parenthood Sex Education website and is part of the SIECUS agenda to change America one school district at a time.

Making Proud Choices! is on the fast track for approval in your school district either on January 6th or 13th , 2014. This sexually explicit curriculum was tabled by the Board early this month due to questions and concerns. At that time, the Board requested copies of the curriculum and any videos or DVDs that go with it.

To date, none of the School Board members have received copies of anything, yet they are expected to approve Making Proud Choices! next month and then find out what is in it. We have heard of this strategy before: “We have to pass the bill, so that you can find out what is in it.”

Unless you, the parents, say NO! to Making Proud Choices! on January 6th, 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 list is from page 150 of Making Proud Choices! in a module entitled “How to Make Condoms Fun and Pleasurable.” While Making Proud Choices! is used as contraception education, in reality it goes beyond contraception instruction 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 how to abstain from sex, although “abstinence” is mentioned beginning on page 60 and afterwards as a disclaimer in some of the lessons.

To garner support for Making Proud Choices! proponents across the nation have 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, which includes SIECUS and the ACLU, wants you to focus on the Abstinence vs. Contraception debate, rather than the Contraception vs. Sexual Foreplay content they are teaching your child.
  3. North Carolina is going in the wrong direction. CDC data indicates that almost 75% 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. Reproductive Health is not taught in this curriculum. This is required under NC Law. Do they not want kids to know about when and where conception takes place?
  5. NC Law requires that abstinence from sexual activity outside of marriage be taught as the expected standard, but Making Proud Choices does not recognize marriage, therefore it cannot teach that marriage is the optimal context for sexual activity.
  6. Family life Education is barely discussed except in the context of how getting pregnancy would affect the parent.
  7. Under Pregnancy Prevention Education, the most effective means of preventing pregnancy, abstinence, is not even mentioned until page 60 as the very last choice. Benefits of condom use are explained but not the risks.
  8. STDs: MPC covers HIV/AIDs but does not promote abstinence as the best strategy to prevent HIV/AIDS. Other STDs such as HPV, Herpes, that are transmitted skin to skin, outside of the area a condom would cover, are barely discussed. HPV is missing from a poster listing STDs.
  9. Students are encouraged to “make proud choices” but discouraged from making “moral choices.”
  10. While NC Law allows for teaching about contraception, it does not appear to allow for teaching pleasurable and fun Safe Sex or Sexual Foreplay in the schools.

Based on the evaluations of Making Proud Choices! listed on the US HHS website, it is a questionable choice for the students of Iredell County, NC. Making Proud Choices! has only been evaluated for community and after school programs, not for school settings – yet it is being used in public schools across the nation! High risk teens that were part of the community and after school programs and already having sex used condoms more often, but virgin teens that had sex after participating in the program, did not use condoms.

How safe is that? I thought that was the whole idea behind teaching ALL children about “safe sex”! So they would be prepared in the heat of the moment!

So, if minors cannot legally consent to sex, why are we allowing US Health and Human Services, Planned Parenthood Zealots and some in the school district to exploit and seduce kids into having sex?

The Planned Parenthood Network will not stop pushing sexual foreplay education in your schools unless you, the parents and taxpayers, demand the best sexual health programs for their children.

Parents: Making a Real Difference!

Making a Differnce

A mother in Mt. Pleasant, SC (Charleston) took the time and effort to read the Making a Difference! sex education curriculum that her child was to receive in middle school. She wrote a very compelling letter to the editor which can be found here:

This mother says that no other reproductive health option was made available. Really?

Making A Difference! does not teach Reproductive Health Education as required by Law.

[If the school district wants a program that completely fulfills the SC Law for middle schools, the Heritage Community Services program, Heritage Keepers, has been approved for at least a decade by Charleston County School District for all middle schools and provides all except contraception for high schools. It is up to the Principal to request Heritage Keepers in a school. Parents need to ask for it by name.]

Making a Difference!, the curriculum exposed in this letter, does not fulfill the Reproductive Health requirements in the State Law, because it does not teach reproduction!!! If it did, by Law, genders would have to separated. They do not separate the boys and girls.

If Making a Difference! were to follow the Law and teach Reproductive Health Education then they have to teach “human physiology, conception, prenatal care and development, childbirth, and postnatal care” and “Abstinence and the risks associated with sexual activity outside of marriage must be strongly emphasized.” They are not teaching reproductive health as required by Law, therefore should not be touted as a reproductive health curriculum.

Teaching Pregnancy Prevention Education in middle schools is not mandated by Law. It is only at the discretion of the school board. Has the CCSD School Board voted to allow Pregnancy Prevention Education in middle schools? When? If so, then they should follow the Law.

Making a Difference! only says it is teaching “Pregnancy Prevention”, so that it can introduce condoms and contraception to middle schools as part of their STD prevention education. Yet, they do not fulfill the Pregnancy Prevention Education component of the Law either!

If it did follow the Law, teacher must:

“(a) stexplain methods of contraception and the risks and benefits of each method. Abortion must not be included as a method of birth control. Instruction explaining the methods of contraception must not be included in any education program for grades kindergarten through fifth. Contraceptive information must be given in the context of future family planning.”ress the importance of abstaining from sexual activity until marriage;
(b) help students develop skills to enable them to resist peer pressure and abstain from sexual activity;
(c) explain methods of contraception and the risks and benefits of each method. Abortion must not be included as a method of birth control. Instruction explaining the methods of contraception must not be included in any education program for grades kindergarten through fifth. Contraceptive information must be given in the context of future family planning.”

Making a Difference only teaches kids how to have fun with condoms by introducing sexual foreplay. They say their “goal” is to prevent the spread of STDs by encouraging kids to use condoms when having sex. Only problem is…it doesn’t work. Many STDs are spread skin to skin, outside the area covered by a condom.

Nothing in the Law requires that skills in sexual activity and sexual stimulation be taught to any school age child. In fact, it is a violation of the law to depict a sexual act.

Making a Difference is in at least 8 SC School Districts: Anderson 3, Barnwell/Blackville-Hilda, Charleston, Dorchester, Horry, Lancaster, Richland 1, and Spartanburg 3.

It targets 11-13 year old minors, who cannot legally consent to sex.

How can this be age appropriate if it breaks the Law?
