Planned Parenthood. Depending on if an individual is liberal or conservative, the company started by Margaret Sanger either provides a civil service or masqueraded eugenics. The Inquisitr reported numerous times on Planned Parenthood, that latest being the company's ads that directly attack Republicans and their view on over-the-counter birth control. In retaliation, many registered Republicans -- who are pro-life -- have organized. However, one Planned Parenthood clinic in Dallas halted pro-lifers in their city by building a concrete wall preventing protesters from infiltrating their grounds.
Now, the most recent news on Planned Parenthood comes from California. Reports show that a school has Planned Parenthood teaching sex education. Because of what is being taught, there are parents who are now irate.
According to Fox News, students in Acalanes High School in Lafayette, California, are being taught sex education by employees of Planned Parenthood. What is peculiar are what and how they are teaching. This includes a checklist asking students inappropriate questions on their readiness to have sex. Questions include if they are ready to have sex, if they have water-based lubricants and condoms, or if they can handle possible infection or pregnancy. The second page of the checklist provides how students can make consent clear for sex.
Not only is Planned Parenthood assisting students in their pursuit of sex, they are also stepping into their identities as well -- as in their gender identities. This is done through the "Genderbread Person," a name parodied off the holiday cookie. It teaches students to identify their gender identity, gender expression, biological sex, and attraction.
Many of the parents who have children exposed to this method of teaching are taking offense. According to Newsmax, the outcry began when students told them about the material, a possible divergence to what is taught at home. John Lyons, a parent of two children who attend Acalanes High School, gave a statement on his experiences with the teaching criteria.
"Our daughter took this course two years ago, after being provided the opportunity to opt out of the class. The opt-out form provided a handful of bullet points about what the course would cover. After completing the course, it was apparent that some of what was 'taught' went beyond what was represented on the opt-out form."
Parents have now launched a petition, in which they want Acalanes High School to give them a preview of the sex education classes before their children are subjected to it. This is so they can decide whether or not they want their children to attend.
After reading the situation with Planned Parenthood teaching Acalanes High School students sex education, what are your thoughts? For the parents out there, do you agree with Planned Parenthood in their method of teaching, or with the parents who stand against them?
