A Washington state mother recently was kicked out of her child’s sex education class after she raised concerns about the Planned Parenthood-based program.
According to the College Fix, Jill Sawicki asked her son’s teacher for permission to sit in on the class at Ferndale High School after receiving a letter about it in November.
The school told parents that a “peer education group” with Whatcom Teen Council would teach the students several lessons about sex; it did not mention that Whatcom is a part of Planned Parenthood.
Sawicki’s son’s teacher agreed to let her observe the class. As she watched, she said she quickly became concerned about the poor quality of the program.
While the student council covered topics like birth control, sexual orientation, and gender identity, Sawicki said they knew almost nothing about the subjects. Sawicki recounted that the students simply read off script cards, and when members of the class asked them questions, they could not answer competently.
The Whatcom council members also provided faulty information, including listing Natural Family Planning as having a low effectiveness rate, failing to classify which types of contraception protects against STDs and not explaining the risks of using hormonal contraception, according to Sawicki.
Sawicki said she decided to meet with a local Planned Parenthood representative to discuss her concerns. That was a mistake.
“After disagreeing about statistics and teaching methods, the representative successfully lobbied the teacher to get Sawicki kicked out of the classroom. Sawicki was barred from sitting in on subsequent sex education classes, according to Planned Parenthood employee Jill Sprouse,” according to the report.
Planned Parenthood teaches sex education to at least 221,000 students in 31 states, according to CBS News.
But it is losing ground. Earlier this month, parents’ massive protests prompted a North Carolina school board to reject Planned Parenthood’s sex education program in its middle schools.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in the United States, aborting more than 320,000 unborn babies every year. Its sex education programs have been criticized for promoting risky sexual behavior to vulnerable young teens and tweens.
According to CBS, Planned Parenthood’s “Get Real” curriculum “encourages sixth graders to feel ‘comfortable and ready’ for sex. The petition says the curriculum provides flash cards outlining proper condom usage, for ‘vaginal, oral or anal sex’ and recommends the usage of ‘non-microwavable saran wrap’ as a prophylactic for certain non-reproductive sex acts.”
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.
