North Carolina parents expressed outrage this week after learning that the abortion chain Planned Parenthood was scheduled to teach sex education their middle school children.
WRAL News reports Cumberland County middle schools put the program on hold this month after hundreds of parents voiced their concerns about the program and the abortion business that is teaching it.
Planned Parenthood’s sex education program “Get Real” was to be taught to six-, seventh- and eighth-grade students over a 10-day period, according to the report.
School officials said parents and students may opt out of the program or specific lessons. However, after receiving so many comments from concerned parents, they agreed to halt the program, and the school board is reviewing the curriculum, according to the report.
Here’s more from the local news:
Hundreds of parents packed an informational meeting Monday night to get an outline of the “Get Real” program. …
“I don’t need somebody else teaching my kids, as they put it in there, ‘the myths and facts about your sexuality.’ That’s something the parents need to do,” parent Nick Quello said. “I just don’t think that’s appropriate for a 12-year-old, whether it be a boy or a girl, to be teaching them that.”
Quello and other parents expressed concern about some of the language and items used to teach the course, such as discussions on sexual preference and demonstrations of how to use a condom. They’re also concerned that it comes from Planned Parenthood.
Pro-life evangelical leader Franklin Graham praised the parents for their involvement, CBN News reports.
“Good for these parents!” Graham wrote on his Facebook page. “Parents were rightly concerned. In the program, students were supposed to learn how to use a condom, review the use of contraception, and even the use of what they call ’emergency’ contraception after sexual intercourse. The program also includes LGBTQ issues and students discuss sexual identity and ‘examine the myths and facts about sexual orientation.’”
Something similar happened in Michigan earlier this year when parents found out the abortion chain was planning to teach sex education to their children. Leaders of the Salien Area Schools said they will not use a Planned Parenthood sex education program for students after its plan to work with the abortion chain sparked a strong public outcry.
And in August, a Pennsylvania school district rejected a plan to put a Planned Parenthood-run facility inside Reading High School after massive public protests.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States, aborting more than 300,000 unborn babies every year. The abortion chain also teaches sex education in public schools across the country, and promotes risky sexual behavior to vulnerable young teens at its clinics.
In 2014, Live Action release an undercover video series showing Planned Parenthood employees encouraging young teens to participate in sado-masochistic sexual activities, including gagging, whipping, asphyxiation, shopping at sex stores and viewing pornography.
The abortion giant also publishes multiple “resources” for children and teenagers concerning sexual activity. These materials claim to provide “age appropriate” sex education to children starting at age 4.
Planned Parenthood justifies starting sex-education at such a young age by stating, “Ideally, medical accurate sexuality education would be taught each year in our schools from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade.”
