A North Carolina school committee recently voted to stop providing a Planned Parenthood sex education program to middle school students.
Cumberland County Schools parents have been expressing outrage for months after learning that the abortion chain Planned Parenthood was scheduled to teach sex education their middle school children.
Last week, a committee assigned to the issue voted to stop using the Planned Parenthood program in the Cumberland public schools and return to a curriculum approved in 2009, according to the News Observer. The school board also has to approve the measure; a vote is scheduled for Tuesday.
Planned Parenthood’s sex education program “Get Real” was to be taught to six-, seventh- and eighth-grade students over a 10-day period, WRAL News previously reported. However, the school district put the program on hold last fall after parents raised concerns.
“It’s morally, ethically and spiritually wrong on all accounts,” concerned parent Rob Wingo told the local news.
Here’s more from the report:
In a letter sent to parents in 2016 to introduce them to the program, former Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Frank Till told parents they could review the lessons two weeks before instruction and that students could opt out and take an alternative assignment.
Rob Wingo, another parent, told The Fayetteville Observer that the program was morally, ethically and spiritually wrong.
The nonprofit Sexual Health Initiatives for Teens (SHIFT NC) recommended “Get Real” to the school system, ABC11 reported in October.
“There’s not a lot of information about LGBTQ youth or different types of sex,” SHIFT NC spokesperson Elizabeth Finley told the TV news station in October.
Something similar happened in Michigan in 2017 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.”
