California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a new law last week allowing Planned Parenthood to push its risky sex education program on charter school students as young as 12.
The legislation (AB 2601), promoted by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California and the ACLU, will require charter schools to provide “comprehensive sexual health education” to pupils in seventh to 12th grades, Breitbart reports. Public schools already are required to do so.
The abortion chain celebrated the news in a statement, saying the new law will impact hundreds of thousands of young students.
“Comprehensive sexual health education promotes healthy relationships, gender equality, safer sex, and bodily autonomy,” said Crystal Strait, CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California. “With the signing of AB 2601, hundreds of thousands of additional young Californians will have access to the curriculum to help keep them healthy and safe.”
California mandated that public school students receive “science-based sexual health education” once in middle school and once in high school in 2015, according to the Visalia Times Delta. The new law, signed Sept. 18, expands that mandate to charter schools.
Advocates of the law said the percentage of sexually active students who use birth control has increased in California since the 2015 law went into effect. However, they did not mention that STD rates also have skyrocketed in the state in the past few years.
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S., also touts itself as the largest sex education provider — at a time when STD rates are at a record high.

The abortion chain pushes a risky sex agenda on impressionable young students, and many parents have protested Planned Parenthood’s involvement in their children’s education.
Among their concerns is that the abortion chain tells children that promiscuity is not a bad thing. “There’s nothing bad or unhealthy about having a big number of sexual partners,” Planned Parenthood tells students on its Tumbler page.
According to a CBS News report, Planned Parenthood’s “Get Real” curriculum “encourages sixth graders to feel ‘comfortable and ready’ for sex. … 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 2015, pro-lifers discovered a Planned Parenthood booklet telling patients that it is their “human right” not to tell their sexual partner that they have HIV.
Live Action also released an undercover video series in 2014 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.
These and other concerns have prompted parents in dozens of communities across the U.S. to protest Planned Parenthood’s sex education programs in their schools.
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.
