Outcry From Parents Forces School to Scrap Sex-Ed Plans and Keep Abstinence Program

Planned Parenthood’s basic operating plan is very straightforward.

1. It installs sex education programs in schools.

2. These sex ed programs then create a demand for birth control among teens.

3. The birth control fails, which then leads to abortions.

Planned Parenthood makes money at each step in this process.

Planned Parenthood and its cohorts have developed a document called the National Sexuality Education Standards. These “standards” are not part of Common Core or any other national program. Rather, they are a horrible set of ideas intended to teach youth about sex, and are being pushed throughout the country. It is not surprising that responsible parents throughout the United States are fighting to keep these sex ed programs out of schools.

One such battle is currently raging in Reno, Nevada, where a document put together by Advocates for Youth (an organization originally called the Center for Population Options) was used to create a new sex program called SHARE. The proposed SHARE program is intended to replace an abstinence-only program in the schools and has met heavy resistance. The Washoe County School District formed a committee to recommend a new program and SHARE was its recommendation.

According to reports in the Reno Gazette-Journal, the committee’s proposed curriculum, which covered a wide array of topics ranging from respect to safe sex practices, was criticized for straying from the currently taught abstinence-only curriculum and interjecting “progressive ideals” surrounding a person’s sexuality, among other things. Major sticking points centered around topics that some community members felt were broached too early in a child’s life or should be left to a parent’s discretion. For instance, drafts of the proposed curriculum referenced vaginal, anal, and oral sex as early as the 6th grade.

The outcry from parents and other members of the community was so strong that the school district had no choice but to cancel plans to implement the SHARE program. The current abstinence-only program will continue being presented for the 2017–2018 school year.

The director of curriculum for the school district said: “We hoped for lots of input and we hoped for community involvement, but we didn’t anticipate the anger that we saw.”

Congratulations to the parents in the Washoe County School District for getting angry. As Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, SIECUS, and others try to push these National Sexuality Education Standards on our children across the country, we must all get angry.

Our children’s lives, health, and souls are at stake. Let us all emulate the parents in Reno and refuse to allow these programs anywhere near our children.
