Sexual Rights Agenda: Confuse the Masses

Featured

by Mary McLellan and Robert Swain

Sexual Rights Advocates claim victory for the lowest teen birth rates in decades. But, why are the rates at an all-time low? Is it really due to “safe sex” education in the schools and the push to get all girls on birth control?

Or, are teens making better decisions and refusing to engage in sex, so that they can focus on their future?

It is laughable that Sexual Rights Advocates claim responsibility for the majority of teens delaying sex! Their programs do not teach Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) skills to abstain from sex. In fact, most of their sex programs teach Sexual Risk Reduction (SRR) skills to “avoid unprotected sex” and “to enjoy the pleasures of “safe sex.”

How can teens focus on their future in such a sexually charged climate?

The goal of the Sexual Rights Agenda is to confuse the uninformed public. They do this by masking the content of most sex programs, keeping the media hype going, and demanding that hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars continue to flow in their direction.

It is true that teen pregnancy and birth rates are at their lowest in decades. Yet, the Sex Cartels demand that “more taxpayer money is needed, state laws must be changed, and more must be done, because one unplanned pregnancy is just too many.”

This false narrative convinces school districts and legislators that only SRR (“safe sex”) programs will work, because “all teens will have sex.” These programs are pushed by the Sex Cartels, including Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, LGBTQ, Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, Advocates for Youth, and the CDC.

However, if one really looks at the data a different narrative emerges. In South Carolina (SC), SRR advocates receive millions in taxpayer dollars annually to expand into more and more schools. And, they claim that they are responsible for the dramatic 68% decrease in pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and 80% decrease for adolescents (10-14). (SC DHEC 2015)

This decline is not a phenomenon, but consistent with national trends. Plus, the CDC’s YRBS (Youth Risk Behavior Survey) for SC reveals that for almost 20-years, most sexually experienced teens have NOT used contraception. They are not practicing “safe-sex.” There has been a:

  •  26% increase (2005-2013) in teens who did not use a condom during last sexual intercourse.
  • 83% of girls did not use birth control pills to prevent pregnancy before last sexual intercourse. (UNCHANGED since 1995)
  • 97% of girls did not use an IUD before last sexual intercourse.

The SC YRBS also reveals that only 32% of high school teens were sexually active at the time of the survey. In addition, there was a:

  • 28% decrease in high school teens who have EVER had sex. (1995-2013)
  • 49% decrease in 9th grade teens who have EVER had sex. (1995-2013)
  • 30% decrease in high school teens who are sexually active. (1995-2013)

In other words, over the past 18 years:

  • Sexually active SC high school teens have not been practicing “safe-sex.” (SRR education has failed in SC for decades and  they don’t want you to know it!)
  • The majority of SC high school teens were not having sex and/or have NEVER had sex!
  • The percentage of sexually experienced high school teens has decreased steadily since 1995.

Most SC students are not duped by the “all teens are having sex, so you better protect yourself” mantras that are chanted in sex classes. Rather, smart teens embrace the SRA (abstinence) messages promoted by their parents, churches, and agencies that teach Evidence-based Abstinence Education.

Teens will live up to high standards! So, we should set high standards for them and for ourselves.

Such progress bodes well for SC, but only if the current trend continues. SRA (abstinence) should be taught as a separate component for all school age children. To omit this vital perspective from schools is censorship.

 

“Safe Sex” education sets our kids up for failure and it defeats the purpose of quality education.

 

 

Making Proud Choices! “I was appalled…”

Featured

By Pastor Gordon Cashwell, Without Walls Ministry

Charleston, South Carolina

 

Making Proud ChoicesRecently, I became aware that Charleston County School District is considering offering a sex education course called Making Proud Choices (MPC) in the schools. I am concerned about this because 2 of my 3 girls are in a public middle school, and because I work with youth in “high risk” neighborhoods.

My first contact with MPC was as a pastor. A lady from our church wanted to recruit youth to attend a YWCA MPC seminar at which they would be given $50 gift certificates. After researching and reading some excerpts from the curriculum, I was appalled and I requested that she not recruit from the church youth.

When I discovered that our local school board was considering offering this program (designed for 11-14 year olds), I had to put effort into fighting it. After reading the entire curriculum, I became even more fervent in my protest. The unedited version of MPC contains no instruction on abstinence skills, but it contains plenty of instruction on how to engage in pleasurable sex, how to purchase condoms, the joys of “safe” oral and anal sex, and the proper use of condoms, dental dams, pills, sponges, patches, rings, shots, diaphragms and more.

The question of offering MPC should not even be entertained considering that no consistent school- based studies exist which demonstrate that MPC makes a long- term positive impact. In addition, this curriculum which is posted on Planned Parenthood’s websites was tested on particular races in “at risk” neighborhoods (a racial issue if you ask me).

Most importantly, however, MPC is ILLEGAL in SC.

SC Code of Law Section 59-32-10 states that any sex education offered in public schools must emphasize the benefit and importance of abstinence until marriage, strong family and marriage life, and support the development of responsible personal values and relationships.   It is not to include instruction about sexual activity outside of marriage or practices unrelated to reproduction.

MPC breaks this law.

If you are not convinced, I would challenge you to contact the Charleston County School Board so that you can set up a time to read the original curriculum for yourself.  Here are some sample quotes from the curriculum for our middle schoolers:

  • “Girls who carry condoms are smart, responsible, proud and safe”
  • “Condoms can be fun and pleasurable if you know the skills to make them that way…. Sex can still feel great with condoms. You can also make sex fun with condoms.”
  • “Keep a supply of condoms on hand… Get used to condoms so they are natural and fun.”
  • If erection is lost… “Have partner take off condom, continue playing and stimulating one another, relax and enjoy the fun”.
  • “…do something positive and fun. Go to the store together. Buy lots of brands and colors (of condoms). Plan a special day when you can experiment. Just talking about how you’ll use the condoms can be a turn on.”

 I hope this shocks you into action.

If we do not stand up for our kids, who will?

Charleston, SC: Bogus CRISIS! in Teen Pregnancy

Featured

don-t-believe-the-hype-t-shirts_design

Sexual Rights Advocates claim the victory for the lowest teen pregnancy rates in decades. They even claim responsibility for the majority of teens choosing to abstain from sex, yet none of their programs promote sexual abstinence or teach the skills to do so.

In order to keep the media hype going and millions of taxpayer dollars flowing in their direction, these teen sex advocates must claim victory where there is none. They use these bogus claims to convince school districts that all teens will have sex so that they will adopt their Planned Parenthood Sex Programs, exclusively, for middle and high school students.

Teen pregnancy rates have been trending downward for well over two decades. In SC, abstinence-until-marriage education was first funded in 1996 under Welfare Reform. Until then, condoms-only programs were the norm, resulting in skyrocketing teen pregnancy rates. Since 1996, pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and adolescents (10-14) have dramatically decreased by 60% and 80%, respectively.

SC 10-14 Preg Rate

Heritage Keepers® is the predominant Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education program used in South Carolina schools over the past two decades. It is the only abstinence-until-marriage program in the nation listed by U.S. HHS as an Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program.(2012) This list of 35 programs is used by school districts to select sex education programs for their students. 

Independent evaluation of Heritage Keepers® in SC public schools reveals that a year after the program, Heritage Keepers® students initiated sexual activity at a rate that is 67% lower than non-program students.

This evaluation included 2,215 sexually experienced and inexperienced students in 7th, 8th, and 9th grade, with 63% of the students African-American.

Heritage Keepers® was shown to be effective across age, gender, and race.

These are amazing behavioral outcomes in the science of teen pregnancy prevention.

In Charleston County, Heritage Keepers® is the only Abstinence-Until-Marriage Education program approved for the public schools, while “safe sex” condom programs are also on the list. When Heritage Keepers® Certified Educators arrive on campus, the sexual climate of the entire school changes. 

Students choosing to abstain feel validated, and those contemplating a return to abstinence are empowered to follow through on their goals.

Pregnancy rates in Charleston have declined even more dramatically than the state, with pregnancy rates for teens (15-17) and adolescents (10-14) decreasing by 72% and 90%, respectively.

So, is contraception use driving down pregnancy rates? Not according to the most recent CDC Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) for SC released in 2014.

According to the YRBS, only 32% of SC high school teens were currently sexually active at the time of the survey. That means that almost 70% of high school teens in SC were not having sex! Who knew?

The survey also showed that there was a:

  • 26% increase (2005-2013) in teens who DID NOT USE a condom during last sexual intercourse.
  • 80% of girls DID NOT USE birth control pills to prevent pregnancy before last sexual intercourse. (UNCHANGED since 1995), and
  • 95% of girls DID NOT USE an IUD before last sexual intercourse.

The YRBS further reveals that between 1995 and 2013 more teens abstained from sexual activity. There was a:

  • 28% decrease in high school teens who have EVER had sex.
  • 49% decrease in 9th grade teens who have EVER had sex.
  • 46% decrease in 4 or more life time partners.
  • 30% decrease in high school teens who are sexually active.

Clearly, contraception is not the only reason that pregnancy rates have decreased, since their use has flat lined. The facts show that sexually active teens are not increasing contraception use! And, more teens are abstaining from sex.

Since “safe sex” condom programs used in SC do not teach teens how to abstain from sexual activity or teach about the benefits of abstinence and marriage, how can they take credit for any increases in abstinent behaviors?

They can’t, but they do!

The complicit media will not report the good news from the YRBS, because it does not fit the Sexual Rights narrative. They continue the drum beat demanding that abstinence-until-marriage education programs have failed and must be kicked out of schools in favor of Planned Parenthood Sex Programs.

Don’t believe the hype about a teen pregnancy crisis in need of the Planned Parenthood solution.

It is only a distraction to hide the Sexual Rights Agenda, which has nothing to do with health. It has everything to do with recruiting adolescents and teens into a sexual lifestyle that benefits their business model.

It’s all about the money.

 

 

 

“Fun and Pleasurable Sex…” Really?

MPC Protest InfoGraphicMaking Proud Choices!, a Sexual Rights curriculum, is listed on the Planned Parenthood website. Making Proud Choices! is under consideration for all schools in Charleston, South Carolina. 

There will be a public hearing August 4th, next Tuesday 9 AM at the District offices 75 Calhoun Street in downtown Charleston.

We urge parents, faith leaders, and taxpayers to attend this meeting in protest of Making Proud Choices! It sends wrong messages to our children that sex at their age is normal, healthy and safe; that abstinence and “protected sex” are equally protective; and how to have “Fun and Pleasurable Sex” with condoms.

The fact that condoms are not 100% protective against pregnancy and STDs is not taught throughout. Even GAY PRIDE groups are waking up to the fact that the FDA has never approved condoms for anal sex. 

Therefore, Making Proud Choices! may contain medically inaccurate information.

Proponents of Making Proud Choices! from EMPOWERR – MUSC Dept. of Psychiatry, made some changes, but ONLY to the Facilitator Manual. 

If Making Proud Choices! is such a wonderful program, why the need to make any changes to get it into the schools?

After spending hours reviewing the final version of the program content, the obvious intent has not changed. That is, to teach students how to have sex. Refusal skills to abstain from all sexual activity are not taught. Nothing was changed in the DVDs and student workbooks, which contain sexually obscene, graphic, and explicit information about how to use condoms for “fun and pleasurable” sex. 

Do you want Charleston’s middle and high school students to learn about any of the information on this flyer?

Take Action! Making Proud Choices! needs to be BANNED, once and for all, by the Charleston County School Trustees.

  • Read and print the flyer and share it with others.
  • Write the School Trustees and tell them that Making Proud Choices! is not appropriate for Charleston’s adolescents and teens. 
  • Show up at the public hearing on Tuesday, August 4th 9AM at 75 Calhoun Street.

 

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

“Abstinence” Redefined…Really?

MPC Protest InfoGraphicMost parents, faith leaders, taxpayers, and school board members have no idea what is in the sex programs offered in their schools. They just believe and rubber stamp whatever the SexPerts tell them. This must end. We can no longer hide our heads in the sand or pretend to live in Mayberry.

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

Making Proud Choices!, is a vile sex program targeting 11-14 year old minors. SexPerts and their disciples across the nation will say and do anything to get these programs into schools. No amount of editing, adapting, or renaming programs changes the intent, which is to groom kids for the sex.

It isn’t until the actual content of programs like Making Proud Choices! is revealed that one begins to realize how deceived we are. Look at the definition of “abstinence” in this flyer about Making Proud Choices!

“The curriculum is intended to reduce the incidence of unprotected sexual behavior… and help them make a difference in their lives by making proud and intelligent choices about their sexual behavior.” p2

What? Yes!

Once “abstinence” is redefined on page 2 it is then chanted a gazillion times throughout the program to brainwash children. No wonder many adults 40 and under believe that having sex with condoms is equal to abstinence, just more fun!

Read and print the flyer, share it with others.

If you don’t, no one else will.

Charleston, SC: Letter Exposing Sex Program Censored!

 censorshipThe Charleston Post and Courier only printed parts of a letter submitted about a recent sex ed meeting where Making Proud Choices! was recommended for the public schools.

See below. The RED is the texts that was censored!

June 2 2015

Last week, [May 21st] the Health Advisory Committee (HAC) for Charleston County School District voted unanimously (9 present out of 13) to recommend Making Proud Choices!, a Safer-Sex program for 11-13 year old middle school minors. This program is promoted and funded by Sexual Rights agencies on the federal and state level.  Abstinence is presented to children as equal to “avoiding unprotected sex.”

A similar action failed 2 years ago when Trustees on the Strategic Education Committee actually read some of the sexually explicit and titillating pages in the curriculum.

However, it made no difference to the HAC that a dozen parents, grandparents, medical and education professionals testified against Making Proud Choices! It made no difference that this program violates SC Law by emphasizing sexual activities, rather than abstinence until marriage. Their main concern was getting out within an hour!

The HAC Chair commented that teens from married families might not need Making Proud Choices!, but teens from single parent, urban families certainly need it. That smacks of profiling, discrimination, and bigotry! Low income African American, Hispanic, and white teens from single parent families deserve to learn the same optimal sexual health message – Abstinence-Until-Marriage – as those teens from married families. No wonder there is a caste system in our culture; the marrieds vs. the unmarrieds.

It is preposterous that the HAC is actually targeting specific groups of children in Charleston to receive sexually explicit condoms-only instruction. Are they also told that they cannot take AP classes or the SAT?  

Making Proud Choices! is a failed condom advocacy program that teaches minors how to have “fun and pleasurable,” “erotic” and “worry free” sex with condoms. Evaluations conducted in 1998, 2010, and 2015 showed “no effect” on condom use by the end of the program and even made things worse!

Just last month, a report on a 3-year project in Texas revealed that more of the 8th grade Making Proud Choices! students had sex for the first time, had sex within 3 months after the program, had unprotected sex, and were less likely to consistently use condoms compared to students taking a regular health program. The Making Proud Choices! students scored higher on knowledge, but were less confident that they could Say NO! to sex. (http://tinyurl.com/nh7vzhd)

Making Proud Choices! will be considered again soon by the Strategic Education Committee consisting of Trustees Chris Collins, Kate Darby and Chris Staubes. Making Proud Choices! needs to be stopped again, because all of our children deserve better than failed sex programs.

[End]

 So, the truth is once again censored. This is why we must get the word out through social media. There is no Freedom of the Press and protecting children is not on their agenda.

ACLU and Activist Judge Need Sex Ed Lesson

Activist JudgesDid you hear the one about the ACLU and the Activist Judge in California? They don’t understand human anatomy, reproduction, or adolescent brain development. Or, do they?

This week, an activist judge ruled that abstinence-only education is “medically inaccurate” and should be illegal in schools. Not only is the teaching of abstinence a state mandate, but abstinence must be taught as the only sure way to prevent pregnancies, HIV and other STDs.

That sounds “medically accurate” to me!

The ACLU is using an 8-year old complaint against the Clovis School District to assault abstinence education and pregnancy care centers who deal with the consequences of sex and unplanned pregnancies every day.

Now, it seems the plaintiffs want to be reimbursed their legal fees, so they are using an activist judge to get them money, while denigrating all abstinence education and smearing pregnancy care centers – at the expense of children.

In 2007, the Clovis School District received complaints from some parents that the abstinence lessons were shaming sexually active students. The school district corrected the issues. Now the ACLU and the parents that sued the district want reparations or restitution for the time that the school district was in the wrong.

While some “mom & pop” abstinence resources have used shame-based rhetoric to encourage delay of sex, it is certainly frowned upon by professional Evidence-based Abstinence Education programs. In fact, most such programs that we have studied encourage all students, regardless of sexual history, to consider abstinence. They explain in great detail the scientific benefits of not having sex until they are in a mutually faithful, monogamous relationship, like marriage. There is no shame; just hope for a better future.

The situation in Clovis sounds like it was a training issue, not a medical accuracy issue!

However, many if not most of the so-called “safe-sex” programs that the ACLU and others in the National Coalition to Support Sexuality Education , promote sexual activities without boundaries as the only normal, healthy, and expected behaviors for children, adolescents, teens and adults. Sex is forced as the only “choice” for young people.

Virgins and those who have decided to commit or recommit to an abstinent life-style are made to feel ashamed of their decision. And, many sexually active students, who do get to hear a strong science-based abstinence message, are relieved to know that they can say NO! to sex.

Girls will say, “No one ever told me that I didn’t have to put out.”

And, boys will comment that, “Now, I know that I don’t have to have babies all over town. I can finish school, get married, and then have children.”

These students, and millions like them, need to be validated and admired for their mature decisions to look beyond the orgasm to a future of real intimacy, health, and success!

One only has to review Making Proud Choices!, a popular sex program for 11-13 year old minors, to understand the extreme pressure that students are subjected to by their teachers and other authorities in the public schools. They are groomed to experiment with sex, delay marriage – if at all, and to engage in risky sexual behaviors. All, while taught that “abstinence” means “avoiding unprotected sex” and if they use condoms, they “do not have to worry.”

Clovis High School did their due diligence to correct their sexual health program years ago. We hope they fight this idiotic decision and win.

When are the Sexual Rights Activists going to take responsibility for the generations of chaotic families they have produced over the past decades? What about all those children who grow up in poverty and dependency on welfare checks with little hope of escape? They are given no “choice.”

It is the Sexual Rights Cartel that should be shamed for their legacy of lies built on the fraudulent science of Alfred Kinsey, and it is their brand of sex education that should be ruled illegal based on “medically fraudulent information” and obscenity statues.

They are the ones that need to pay restitution or reparations to the taxpayers and get kicked out of the schools!
