A group of Pennsylvania parents expressed outrage this week after learning that their seventh-grade students were taught a “graphic” sex education lesson by a group that partners with Planned Parenthood.
KDKA News reports parents at the Hazelwood location of Propel Charter School in Pittsburgh said their young students were told graphic details about oral sex during a recent science class. The parents recently met with the principal to discuss their concerns.
A parent who asked to remain anonymous told the news outlet what her daughter told her about the class: “‘We said we didn’t know what it meant, and he told us to look it up, but not on a school computer because they would be able to track it.’ So, a little boy looked it up on his phone, and she saw images and she was traumatized.”
John Mitchell, another parent, said he was extremely upset when he found out what his young daughter was exposed to.
“Now I gotta explain things to my child that she may or may not be ready for. But, guess what? She had to find out about it today,” he said.
A spokesperson for the school said they partner with Adagio Health to teach sexual health education. LifeNews learned that Adagio is a partner of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
Here’s more from the report:
“I protect her, and then she’s at school where she’s supposed to be protected, and there’s a grown male telling a 13-year-old girl to look it up, and once you see those images you can’t erase those images,” a concerned mother said of her daughter.
Propel Schools has launched a full investigation.
“To the best of my understanding, in this situation, parents raised some new concerns today with the principal,” said Toler. “So, at this point the principal is starting an investigation to determine the truth in the allegations.”
“I would like this guy to be removed. I would like for him to lose his clearances,” another parent said.
How closely the Adagio sex education program aligns with Planned Parenthood’s is not clear, but the Pittsburgh health group does promote the abortion chain to students. Several of the websites Adagio recommends for teens include sites that link to Planned Parenthood abortion facilities, and one encourages teens to chat online with Planned Parenthood about their sex-related questions.
Many parents become very upset when they learn Planned Parenthood teaches their students about sex. School districts in North Carolina and Michigan recently rejected Planned Parenthood sex education programs because of a strong public outcry.
According to a CBS report, the North Carolina 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.”
In 2017, another Pennsylvania school district also 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.
Planned Parenthood’s booklet for HIV-positive youth, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” tells young people that it is their “human right” to not tell their partner that they have HIV.
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.
In 2017, President Donald Trump’s administration cut taxpayer funding to one of Planned Parenthood’s sex education programs. HHS spokesman Mark Vafiades told the New York Times last year that there is very little evidence that the program to prevent teen pregnancies was successful. However, Planned Parenthood is suing to block the cuts.
