An Alaska lawmaker wants to stop abortion groups from teaching sexual education to public school students in his state.
Alaska state Sen. Mike Dunleavy, R-Wasilla, introduced a bill this week to prohibit school districts from contracting with abortion groups or accepting instruction or materials from them, the Associated Press reports. The bill also includes penalties for school employees and abortion group employees who knowingly violate the measure, the report states.
“Our schools are evolving into indoctrination centers. They’re evolving more away from the basic intent of education, which is to give kids skills and knowledge,” Dunleavy said.

Dunleavy said sexual education and other values training should come from parents first. A companion bill that he recently introduced would have school districts adopt policies promoting parental involvement and allow parents to withdraw a child from a school program if they have concerns about content involving sexual matters or privacy, the report states.
Planned Parenthood officials fired back at Dunleavy’s bills, claiming they are unconstitutional. However, Erik Houser, a spokesman for the abortion giant, said Planned Parenthood is the largest nonprofit provider of sexual health education in Alaska. Houser said his abortion affiliate provides direct sex ed to more than 2,000 Alaska students each year.
Like Dunleavy, many parents across America have expressed concern about Planned Parenthood’s influence on young students. The group, which aborts more babies than any other group in the U.S., openly opposes abstinence education programs. Instead, the group lobbies to teach its own sex education programs in schools.
In 2014, LifeNews reported that Hawaii state Rep. Bob McDermott tried to get copies of Planned Parenthood’s sex education curriculum after hearing complaints from parents about what was being taught in Hawaii public schools. The state department of education denied his request, saying “the curriculum is sensitive in nature and can be misinterpreted.”
Some pro-lifers oppose the abortion group’s sex ed program because they say Planned Parenthood uses it to gain students’ trust and sell more abortions. Others oppose it because they say Planned Parenthood promotes risky sexual behavior to vulnerable young teens.
In 2014, Live Action release a video of Planned Parenthood employees telling girls that “stop,” really doesn’t always mean, “stop” and encouraging young teen females to participate in sado-masochistic sexual activities, including gagging, whipping, asphyxiation, shopping at sex stores and viewing pornography.
LifeNews also recently reported that Planned Parenthood’s booklet for HIV-positive youth, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” tells young people that it is their “human right” to not tell their partner that they have HIV.
