In other words, not a very nice wish for the new year. But that is exactly what Planned Parenthood is offering our children.
Not too long ago a mother wrote to me: “I am very concerned that, by using an abstinence-only approach to educating our young people, we are doing them an extreme disservice and they will be unprepared for the real world. How do you feel?”
My answer usually ruffles feathers, but it goes something like this:
The teaching of virtue in today’s society is rare but as we know, when purity is the cornerstone of a young person’s practices with himself or with others, there is no need to sink to the level of teaching sex in the classroom.
The problem is many parents sell their kids short, believing that a young person cannot practice self control, and thus on their behalf such parents fall into the Planned Parenthood trap. Shame on those parents who do this.
Planned Parenthood is, without a doubt, the single most threatening force in the nation today when it comes to family stability, sexual health, and self respect among young people. Take, for example, the Hawaiian Pono Choices curriculum, “a culturally responsive teen pregnancy and STI (sexually transmitted infection) program.”
This program is one of many Planned Parenthood-inspired school programs, yet it does anything but inspire healthy attitudes toward the sexual identity of the human being. Indeed, among the consultants working on the program with Planned Parenthood and the University of Hawaii is Making Proud Choices. According to the Wednesday STOPP Report, “Making Proud Choices is a curriculum that targets African American youth, ages 11 to 13, and pays them to participate in the program. Making Proud Choices teaches children that sex is ‘fun and pleasurable when a condom is used and [students] are taught how to incorporate this belief into role-play scenarios.’”
Tito Montes, president of the Hawaiian Republican Assembly, wrote this about Pono Choices:
Understanding the political agenda of the pushers of Pono Choices—the people and organizations behind this curriculum—explains everything. Adults who perceive themselves as “really sophisticated” will undoubtedly feel that abstinence-oriented sex education is naïve because “kids are going to have sex no matter what.” Hipster educators scoff at the notion that you can set clear, unmistakable boundaries for behavior. They laugh hysterically at the idea that parents can be trusted to raise children in modern society. The rallying cry of “government knows better” cuts across every department, agency, and program, whether county, state, or federal. But when the Democrat-run public education system gives multiple green lights to this Pono Choices program and dares to cite conformity with state law as justification for the program’s continuation and expansion, one must ask: Is there really a state law which legislates that it’s a great idea to maximize the sexual rights and activity of children? Of course not!
In other words, a filthy new year for the children of Hawaii IF Planned Parenthood gets its way.
As if this were not bad enough, we have learned of the Planned Parenthood cell phone app for 12-year-olds that sends the message that “having sex feels good.” If you don’t believe this incredible piece of news, go to the Planned Parenthood Facebook page and read about it for yourselves—that is if you can stand to wade through the stuff that I honestly think is Grade A pornography masquerading as education and humor.
So if you accept the argument that we are doing young people an “extreme disservice and they will be unprepared for the real world” if we demand an end to the perversions being taught as sex education, perhaps you should think again.
Do the children of this nation really deserve a filthy new year, or do they deserve instead the opportunity to experience the mental, spiritual, and physical benefits of a lifestyle based on virtue?
In my mind, the answer is a no-brainer.
