Washington state parents expressed outrage earlier this month after their middle school students brought home a flyer explaining that 11-year-olds may have sex with a person up to two years old than them and may get abortions without their parents’ knowledge.
The Post Millennial reports the flyer came from the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood, which boasts of being the largest sex education provider in the United States.
According to the report, a teacher at Stewart Middle School in Tacoma distributed the flyer to eighth grade students earlier this month.
Among other things, the flyer explained that the age of consent to have sex in Washington state is 11 as long as the child has sex with someone less than two years older than them.
It also told students that they do not need permission from a parent to get tested for HIV or STDs if they are at least 14, and they do not need permission from a parent to get an abortion or prescription birth control under state law, no matter what age they are. The flyer also included information about sexting.In response to parents’ outrage, the school district conducted an investigation and issued an apology, according to the report.

In a letter obtained by The Post Millennial, Eric Hogan, assistant director of secondary education at Tacoma Public Schools, “sincerely apologize[d] for the error.”
Hogan said the flyer was not approved and should not have been given to students. He said Planned Parenthood no longer provides presentations at the school, but it left a folder with some of its materials at the school. Earlier this month, he said a teacher took the flyer from the packet and distributed it to students.
“Corrective action has been taken with this employee,” Hogan stated in the letter.
But Planned Parenthood and its radical abortion advocacy are not entirely gone from the school.
According to the report:
In the last election cycle, Washington voters approved Referendum 90, a graphic state-wide, sex ed curriculum created and endorsed by Planned Parenthood and radical activist organizations.
Informed Parents of Washington, objected to the early sexualization of children in the curriculum, as well as the graphic material and warned of the possibility of grooming young children for early sexual experiences.
Planned Parenthood boasts of being “the single largest provider of sex education in the United States.” It aborts more unborn babies than any other group in the U.S. and reports billion-dollar revenues. Troubling for many Americans, its annual budget also includes about half a billion tax dollars.
Many believe it uses its sex education programs to groom children for sex and abortions.
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 its 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 one 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.
