An upcoming Texas sex education conference is targeting teens with a radical pro-abortion agenda.
According to the Dallas Voice, the “The Queer Not Fear — Sex Ed Advocacy for LGBTQ+” virtual conference is geared toward teens and young adults. Along with LGBTQ issues, the conference also will promote abortions through a series of sessions hosted by pro-abortion groups.
One session, “Abortion Access for Young People in Texas,” will be taught by Jane’s Due Process, a pro-abortion legal group that helps teens get secret abortions without their parents’ knowledge or consent.
Another session will be hosted by the Texas Freedom Network, a group that recruits pro-abortion clergy to hold special services to “bless” abortion facilities. It uses religion to try to justify the killing of unborn babies.
The organization hosting the conference, the National LGBTQ Task Force, also supports abortions.
“The National LGBTQ Task Force recognizes that everyone has a fundamental right to sexual and bodily autonomy, which includes the right to decide whether or when to become a parent, parent the children we have, and to do so with dignity and free from violence and discrimination,” its website states.
The conference organizers also criticized abstinence-only sex education programs that teach young people responsibility and self-control.
Organizer Taissa Morimoto told the Dallas Voice:
Mentioning abstinence is the surest way to get young people to tune the instructor out, she said. It doesn’t work, and young people don’t believe it. And that teacher loses credibility for any accurate information that may be included.

Many sex education programs today push an unsafe, unhealthy agenda on teens and even younger students. Planned Parenthood, the billion-dollar abortion chain, brags that it is the largest provider of sex education in the U.S. It also does more abortions than any other group in the country.
Among its worst teaching points, Planned Parenthood tells children that promiscuity is ok. “There’s nothing bad or unhealthy about having a big number of sexual partners,” it tells students on its Tumbler page. 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 sexual partner that they have HIV.
Numerous communities have rejected Planned Parenthood as a sex education teacher. The whole Massachusetts legislature rejected a bill in 2017 that recommended Planned Parenthood’s middle school sex education curriculum. The program teaches children as young as 12 “how to perform oral and anal sex.”
Concerned parents in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, California, Washington state, New York, North Carolina and other parts of the country also have protested Planned Parenthood’s involvement in their students’ education in the past several years.
In another recent case, parents at a Pennsylvania school said a Planned Parenthood partner group taught seventh-grade students graphic details about oral sex during a science class.
