Parents across the United States pulled their children out of school Monday to protest the risky sex agenda being promoted in the name of sex education.
The SexEd Sit Out began with a group of concerned mothers on social media and grew into an international protest, with families in America, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom participating, according to Breitbart.
Families participating in the “Sex Ed Sit Out” kept their children home from school Monday to protest “the graphic nature of sex education” in many public schools. Some public schools rely on Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America, to teach children about sex.
“We are uniting with parents across the globe to demand that our rights as parents be respected regarding the teaching of sexuality and sexual orientation,” said Caryl Ayala, organizer of the Austin, Texas protest, in a statement. “Hands off our kids!”
Ayala said the program used in the San Antonio area, “Draw the Line, Respect the Line,” undercuts parental authority, and one study found the program had zero impact on reducing the sexually risky behaviors of middle school girls.
Organizers encouraged parents to send a letter to their children’s principal to explain why they are protesting. The letter reads, in part: “Pornographic sex ed is being implemented across our globe in an attempt to indoctrinate our children with ‘sexual rights.’ This is unacceptable and [I am] joining others both nationally and globally in taking a stand to say ‘enough!’”
Here’s more from the report:
“A few of us moms were disgusted by the evidence we were seeing on social media of graphic sex ed in the schools and the stories about gender transition parties and teaching kids to question their gender,” Sex Ed Sit Out organizer Elizabeth Johnston – the “Activist Mommy” – tells Breitbart News. “So we decided to stop griping about it and actually do something about it.”
The protest has taken off from Charlotte, North Carolina, to about 15 other cities, including Austin and San Antonio, Texas; Spokane, Washington; Garden Grove and Sacramento, California; Evansville, Bloomington, and Indianapolis, Indiana; Decorah, Iowa; and Martinsburg, West Virginia.
Internationally, protests are planned for London, Harrow, U.K.; Calgary, Alberta, Canada; Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; Victoria, British Columbia, Canada; and Mulgrave, Victoria, Australia.
Last year, President Donald Trump’s administration cut taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood’s sex education programs. HHS spokesman Mark Vafiades told the New York Times there is very little evidence that the program to prevent teen pregnancies was successful.

Recently, parents in Rocklin, California and Farifax County, Virginia have expressed concerns after discovering “gender-bending” and “graphic sex education” programs being taught to children as young as age 5, protest organizers noted.
LifeNews has reported similar concerns in other communities. In March, parents of Monrovia, California middle school students expressed concern after learning that the abortion chain Planned Parenthood was invited to a student health fair without their knowledge.
Similarly, in February, a North Carolina school board voted to cancel a Planned Parenthood sex education program for its middle school students after many parents raised concerns.
According to a CBS News report, the parents said 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.”
Something similar happened in Michigan in 2017 when parents found out the abortion chain was planning to teach sex education to their children.
Last August, a Pennsylvania school district also rejected a plan to put a Planned Parenthood-run facility inside Reading High School after massive public protests.
LifeNews recently discovered pro-abortion biases in a bestselling American government textbook as well.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion group in the United States, aborting more than 320,000 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.
