Planned Parenthood targets Hispanics with ‘East Los High’

HOLLYWOOD, August 7, 2013 (American Life League) - Planned Parenthood’s has its guns aimed squarely at Hispanic teens, as it continues its latest foray into eugenic targeting via an unbelievably salacious novella featuring an all-Latino/Latina cast.

Set in East Los Angeles, Episode 1 of East Los High (ELH) features Vanessa, who has just been crowned Winter Queen. She receives a text and, stopping mid-dance with her boyfriend, the Winter King, dashes to a car and has sex with the caller. The scene flashes from the dance floor to the car, where Vanessa is seen gyrating and moaning, while someone videotapes the sex scene with a cell phone.

This is Planned Parenthood’s avenue for curbing teen pregnancy?

A Hollywood Reporter headline proclaims: “How Hulu lured Latinos to East Los High” with a subtitle that says, “The streaming service’s racy soap, designed to curb teen pregnancy, uses ‘salacious’ storylines to lure kids to the message.”

Hulu streams video via the Internet, and is very popular among the teen population.

Population Media Center (PMC) is the creator of East Los High. PMC’s founder and president is William Ryerson, a former Planned Parenthood executive. Since 2008, he has also served as CEO of the Population Institute, which works in partnership with his social engineering organization Population Media Center.

The Hollywood Reporter article trumpeting East Los High continues:

It’s a hit drama set among Latino teens with themes of love, sex, violence and revenge—all the elements of a racy telenovela. But East Los High is designed to teach as much as titillate.

The first TV series exclusively on Hulu in English with a Latino cast, the show is the brainchild of the nonprofitPopulation Media Center, which creates serialized content to promote social change, and is designed as a PSA of sorts for the target Latino audience. Storylines have a moral, characters become role models, and viewers ultimately are directed to websites with resources on such issues as teen pregnancy.

Which begs the questions: What kind of public service is done by the airing of this trashy novella directed to Hispanic teens? And just what is the “moral” of Episode 1? Finish the dance with your boyfriend before dashing to the car to have sex with someone else? Watch out when you have sex in a car because someone may be videotaping you? Being voted Winter Queen will make you extremely popular on the hookup circuit?

How can anyone even use the word “moral” in connection with this series?

Vanessa does become a role model, however. Not one that parents would want their teens to emulate, but a role model nevertheless, as borne out by comments on the East Los High Facebook page, where a teen comments that Vanessa is “real,” but the girl who plays the role of a virgin is “annoying.” Getting her out of the “virgin’s club” is a recurring theme of the series.

A quick visit to EastLosHigh.com will show that the websites and resources offered are from Planned Parenthood and its cohorts. The trailer for the series on YouTube shows scene after scene of sex, dirty dancing, sex, violence, sex, foul language, and more sex.

The Reporter article continues describing the methodology of pulling Hispanic teens in to Planned Parenthood’s web with the soap opera:

“You start out with a very salacious soap opera and get them in,” says Evangeline Ordaz, who writes the show with creators Carlos Portugal and Kathleen Bedoya. “Then hit them up with, ‘If you’re going to have sex, be responsible.’”

After watching Episode 1, this author found no hint of a responsibility message connected to the sex taking place on camera or the sale of cocaine that is the subject of the last half of the episode.

A July 30 Huffington Post article pinpoints Planned Parenthood as an originating partner of the series: “The series grew out of partnerships with sexual health organizations and the Latino advocacy groups Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, Voto Latino and the California Family Health Council.”

The series shows teens putting themselves in inappropriate, dangerous situations—including drug sales, alcohol use, violent relationships, and engaging in sex—and having no regrets, except when they fail to use contraception or end up on the wrong end of a gun.

Some of the excerpts from the show are featured on the ELH Facebook page as memes, including: “Sexaholic and proud of it,” “You can’t get out of a DUI with a hand job,” and “You’re getting buried—I mean married.” Teens are also instructed on the Facebook site, “Watch Maya get personal—with a banana. You too might learn something.” Also included are tips on how to “pleasure your partner.” Remember, all this is supposedly presented by Planned Parenthood and friends to curb teen pregnancy. Vanessa’s Winter Queen sex video is also featured on the Facebook page.

How could Planned Parenthood orchestrate a more blatant attempt at targeting the Hispanic teen population to draw them into its facilities? The series hands teens the recipe for their demise on a platter via Hulu—which is owned by Walt Disney Co., News Corp. and Comcast, and claims a subscriber base of four million—and frames it to teens, to parents, and the public as education.

Interestingly, Disney collaborated with the Population Council, founded by John D. Rockefeller, as early as 1968 to produce a “family planning” propaganda cartoon employing overpopulation scare tactics. The propaganda piece was translated into 25 languages. Rockefeller was an initial supporter and funder of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood. The Rockefeller Foundation continues to be a major funder of Planned Parenthood today. The Ford Foundation is another longtime supporter of Planned Parenthood, so it comes as no surprise that as the credits roll at the end of Episode 1 of East Los High, thanks is given to the Ford Foundation and Planned Parenthood supporters Fred and Alice Stanback. The Stanbacks gifted Planned Parenthood in North Carolina with $300,000 in 2012 alone for “affiliate-wide support.”

Parents and concerned citizens should contact Hulu’s corporate headquarters at 310-571-4700. Let them know that the targeting of Latino teens by Planned Parenthood is not acceptable, and request that the videos be removed and a second season contract not be extended.

For Hillary Clinton, abortion access trumps religious liberty

Dustin Siggins Dustin Siggins Follow Dustin
By Dustin Siggins

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 1, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- For Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, apparently abortion trumps religious liberty.

It may have gotten bipartisan support in the House of Representatives last night, but a spokesperson for the Democratic Party's leading presidential candidate says a resolution protecting religious liberty in the District of Columbia "overrule[s] the democratic process" and hurts women.

The vote, which saw three Democrats join the GOP majority and 13 Republicans stand with Democrats, was meant to protect pro-life and religious organizations in the District from the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act (RHNDA).

RHNDA was signed by the mayor of the District of Columbia, Muriel Bowser, in January, and makes it illegal for any employer, including religious and pro-life organizations, to use a person's belief or actions about abortion in employment considerations. It also requires employers to provide abortion coverage.

The resolution now goes to the Senate, where it is expected to fail due to the Senate being on recess. Under existing federal law, the measure has 30 legislative days to be disapproved by Congress and President Obama. If this does not happen, it becomes law.

The 30-day window ends on Saturday. President Obama promised a veto of the resolution on Thursday, even though RHNDA was opposed by former District mayor Vincent Gray. According to Gray, while he "applaud[s] the goals of this legislation," the former mayor believes RHNDA could violate the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal treatment under the law.

The statement by the Clinton campaign left no doubt that she stood with Obama and a majority of Democratic legislators. Spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri told CNN, "Hillary Clinton has fought for women and families and their right to access the full range of reproductive health care without interference from politicians or employers."

"Hillary will fight to make it easier, not more difficult, for women and families to get ahead and ensure that women are not discriminated against for personal medical decisions."

The remarks come a week after Clinton took criticism for saying that "religious beliefs" critical of "reproductive rights" must "be changed."

“Yes, we've cut the maternal mortality rate in half, but far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health,” she told the Women in the World Summit on April 23.

“Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper," said Clinton in her speech. "Laws have to be backed up with resources, and political will."

“Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed,” said the candidate.

Social conservatives may be funding the destruction of marriage: corporate watchdog

Dustin Siggins Dustin Siggins Follow Dustin
By Dustin Siggins

May 1, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- With over $55 million in annual revenue, the Human Rights Campaign may be America's most powerful LGBT activist group. And according to a conservative corporate watchdog, that's in part because social conservatives are funding it.

"Conservatives would be surprised to know that many of the dollars they spend every day are helping fund an agenda that seeks to destroy traditional marriage and undermine religious freedoms," said 2nd Vote National Outreach Director Robert Kuykendall. "Even when they purchase a beverage from a company like Coca-cola or Starbucks, their dollar is going to support HRC's liberal agenda to redefine marriage."

Less than 18 months old, 2nd Vote has graded hundreds of corporations on six issues -- corporate welfare, the environment, education, support for the Second Amendment, abortion, and as of two weeks ago, same-sex "marriage." Using their "scoring" system, 2nd Vote ranks corporations on their direct or indirect involvement with these hot-button public policy and cultural issues.

And according to them, some of America's favorite corporations are making the radical HRC agenda possible.

"HRC is the largest LGBT lobbying organization in the United States with reported revenues of over $55 million," Kuykendall told LifeSiteNews. "The redefinition of marriage and the undermining of religious freedom are major components of HRC’s policy agenda. To fund their policy goals, HRC has enlisted the help of many major corporations that we do business with every day to help fund. Over a third of the contributions received by HRC are listed as 'Corporate/Foundation Grants.'" 

Why should conservatives care about corporate donors to HRC? Kuykendall says the organization is both politically influential and publicly deceptive. "Last election cycle, HRC spent around a million dollars on electioneering activities and in support of liberal candidates willing to push their legislative agenda. HRC is responsible for spreading much of the misinformation regarding [Religious Freedom Restoration Act] laws and has also mischaracterized the protections provided by these laws."

"HRC organized a massive grassroots campaign in support of the legal battle to overturn state laws protecting marriage and influence the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges," said Kuykendall.

Marriage isn't the only issue on which conservatives may be at odds with HRC's corporate backers. "2nd Vote’s research into other issues such as life, the environment, and the 2nd Amendment shows that many of the companies supporting HRC have taken liberal stands on other issues as well,” he said. “For example, Apple, Citigroup, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola are Platinum Partners, the highest level of HRC’s National Corporate Partners, that have also funded the liberal Center for American Progress [CAP]."

"Bank of America, Google, Goldman Sachs, Starbucks, PepsiCo, and Morgan Stanley are also HRC Corporate Partners that have funded CAP. Furthermore, all of these companies signed the amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to overturn state marriage laws."

In Indiana, the state's religious liberty law was modified because of corporate pressure led by Tim Cook, Apple's gay CEO. Kuykendall says conservatives should not give up, though he acknowledges that "for too long, conservatives have let liberals and groups like HRC bully companies into not just going along with their agenda, but actively funding and promoting it."

"However, conservatives have also proven their ability to mobilize and use their dollars in support of traditional values as we’ve seen through the fundraising campaigns for the pizza parlor and wedding cake makers who have been attacked by liberals for their beliefs. Conservatives need to turn the tables on the left, and groups like HRC, and motivate companies to stop funding the liberal agenda through the power of their shopping habits."

Only nine companies have ranks of "five" or "four" on 2nd Vote's ranking system, indicating a pro-marriage perspective. They are outnumbered more than 10 to 1 by organizations that support redefining marriage.

First graders exposed to book about transgender boy—without parental notification

Fr. Mark Hodges
By Fr. Mark Hodges

KITTERY POINT, ME, May 1, 2015, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Parents at one Maine school are upset that children as young as six were exposed to a book promoting transgender issues, in the name of "acceptance."

Parents were not only not consulted, they were never even notified of their children's exposure to transgenderism.

Horace Mitchell Primary School read the book I Am Jazz to first-grade students. The book is about a boy who identifies as a girl from the age of two, "with a boy's body and a girl's brain." He eventually finds a doctor who tells his parents, "Jazz is transgender."

Parents began to inquire about what was being taught at Horace Mitchell Primary after children came home with questions about their own sex and wondering if they, too, might be transgender.

One mother, upset that teachers would broach the subject of transgenderism with her little boy, said the primary school ignored her complaint. "I feel like my thoughts, feelings and beliefs were completely ignored...My right as a parent to allow or not allow this discussion with my child was taken from me," she told Hannity.com.

"When I spoke with the principal he was very cold about it," the mother continued. "It's amazing how thoughtless the school has been with this whole thing."

Only after Sean Hannity made national inquiries did Horace Mitchell Primary School suggest that teachers should have told parents ahead of time.

Allyn Hutton, the superintendent of the local district, said she supported reading the book but admitted that parents should have been given advance warning about the subject matter. "We have a practice of – if a topic is considered sensitive – parents should be informed. In this situation, that didn't happen," she said. "We understand that toleration is tolerating people of all opinions."

Horace Mitchell Primary School sent an e-mail, after the fact, to concerned parents, including a link to a blog post of the school's guidance counselor, explaining their motivation was "cultivating respect."

"Some may think primary school students are too young to worry about addressing issues surrounding gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students. Not so, experts say,” the school's guidance counselor wrote. “It’s never too early to begin teaching children about respecting differences."

Homosexual activists say they support the teaching of transgenderism to first-graders, with or without parental notification. "The staff of Mitchell School is...shedding a light on [LGBTQ] issues,” said a column in Gay Star News.

The LGBT puublication goes even further, advocating homosexual propaganda be commonplace in elementary schools across the country. "LGBTQ issues should never be classified as a 'sensitive subject,' [because] there is nothing sensitive about the way we are born. Blonde hair, brown hair, gay, straight or somewhere in-between."

Brian Camenker of MassResistance commented on the infiltration of homosexual propaganda in children's schools. "We deal with parents and teachers a lot, and the idea that teachers would do this is unconscionable. It's like the people that promote this stuff are evil. It's demonic. You can't imagine adults that would do this to other people's children, and do it with such anger, and such vitrol.”

Camenker emphasized that this is “not an isolated incident with just one, rogue teacher. This happens because the whole administrative hierarchy buys into it.”

“The new generation of educators is very, very frightening,” he said.
