According to the Education Action Group, a horrific sex education bill has been passed in Massachusetts. The bill purportedly puts forth that schools have medically accurate and age appropriate sex education curriculum. Unless a legislator digs deeper, they will miss the fact that the curriculum is created by none other than Planned Parenthood. A newspaper (innocently) said the legislation would require schools “to teach about both abstinence and contraception, as well as healthy relationships.” That’s not the kind of language that is going to stir a great deal of opposition, among citizens or their elected representatives.
But one sex education guide getting the thumbs up from the state is titled, “Get Real: Comprehensive Sex Education That Works,” published by Planned Parenthood. Here are a few examples of its lessons:
- A dental dam is “placed over the vulva or anus during oral sex. It says people can also use non-microwavable saran wrap.” (Author’s note: WHAT?! Sixth-graders need to know that for what reason, exactly?)
- A scenario is offered in which “Brittany’s girlfriend wants to have oral sex with her. Brittany really likes her girlfriend, and her friends say that having oral sex will bring them closer together.”
- Another tells about how “Erika and Cameron use condoms as their method of birth control. So far, they’ve used a condom every time they’ve had vaginal intercourse, but Cameron wants to see what it feels like without a condom. He asks Erika if they can try it just once without a condom and says he can pull out before he comes.”
- Yet another lesson “discusses the use of an internal condom that is inserted into the anus. It is said to act as a barrier, but warns that it may slip out of place during vaginal or anal intercourse. It warns that it may be difficult to insert.”
- (Other outrageous topics of discussion are outlined at EAG.)
Not only are they replacing medically accurate terms like “ejaculation” with the crasser “cum,” but they are putting situations in the spotlight that some parents would rather discuss at home with their children. For example, issues like homosexuality, as in the case of “Brittany and her girlfriend.”
It seems as though Planned Parenthood is putting out dangerous information to kids to desensitize them as well as to almost guarantee that the kids will remember the “lessons” and possibly try them. Perhaps this will lead to these same students needing to be “rescued” by Planned Parenthood when they later get a sexually transmitted disease or pregnant…
The school board members and parents who will deal with the fallout of this controversial curriculum would probably like to have a heads up that it’s happening beforehand so that they can keep it from entering their schools in the first place.
What’s most disturbing, to me as a mom, is the thought that abstinence or saying NO isn’t even an option. It’s just a forgone conclusion that the kids are going to be trying this stuff.
I urge you to check your own state’s sex education plan. Here in Oregon, Planned Parenthood plays a large part, and you might be surprised to find them in your school’s classrooms as well.
