Keep Planned Parenthood and abortion merchants away from our children
I attended the parent’s meeting at Sacred Heart last Thursday. A lot of good information was presented. The best speaker was Alaynna McCormick, the Hardin Valley Academy student who sparked the controversy by telling her mother what Planned Parenthood was teaching at her school.
So far, the school officials are mum. If they are getting the message, they aren’t letting on. They don’t seem to understand that their one-page curriculum is almost irrelevant. What matters is who is teaching and what they are saying. And in the age of the internet, what websites are associated with the speaker. It’s not just about what is said in class; inviting PP and the abortion industry into any school is an endorsement. I don’t care what the anti-smoking curriculum says, I still wouldn’t get Phillip Morris to present it.
Despite the good work done by all who presented, there are two key points that are not coming through, as yet. The parents are going to have to make policy makers and citizens alike more aware of two key points.
First, the PP websites contain much more debauchery than was exposed by any of the speakers on Thursday night. It’s just like trying to explain abortion. If you sanitize it, people don’t get it. To effectively rid the schools of PP, they need to be exposed. And they have published plenty of stuff that would make a sailor turn red. We just need to buck up and read this filth into the public record, no matter how dirty it makes us feel. Speakers need to blow up and hold up the pictures that are on PP websites and in their books. Otherwise, we look like a bunch of prudes. And it’s not just the description of the acts; it’s the encouragement of our teens to “experiment” and do whatever they feel like doing at the time.
Second, we need to expose the profit angle. In a previous post, FAB documented the amount of money that PP stands to make off marketing sex to our children. It is an outrageous conflict of interest, and it needs to be exposed.
