No Planned Parenthood in Knox County Schools
Below is a statement from Lisa Morris of the Pro Life Coalition of East Tennessee (ProCET). Note meeting on January 27.
Planned Parenthood has been given access to Knox County students, and at least one presentation has been done without parental knowledge or consent. Beyond the fact that Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, their “wellness education” includes elements that many parents would consider unacceptable, if not pornographic. We have attached a flyer with excerpts from their Teen Wire website as well as a link to video selections from their “Take Care Down There” website. [FAB note: If you want to see the depravity of PP materials, go to www.TakeCareDownThere.org and watch the “I didn’t spew” video.]
We are asking for every concerned leader and parent to take a clear and immediate stand against this effort to corrupt our students and degrade the gift of human sexuality with their unacceptable materials.
Please attend an informational meeting:
January 27, 2011
The Chancery Office
805 Northshore Drive, SW
Knoxville, TN 37919
We will present additional information on Planned Parenthood’s agenda and history along with our strategy for action to remove Planned Parenthood and any of their endorsed materials from our schools. Our unity in this effort will be critical for success, so please share this information with other concerned friends and family and invite them to join you for this important meeting.
In addition please call or write Governor-Elect Haslam, 615.254.4799, Superintendent of Schools, Dr. McIntyre, 865-594-1620, and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, 865-215-2005, to express your outrage.
Here are some additional points you may want to include:
- Planned Parenthood has already presented their materials to students at Hardin Valley Academy without parental knowledge or consent.
- Planned Parenthood is the world’s biggest abortion provider; their graphic websites target teens with obscene material that encourages risky sexual behavior and they are under investigation in a number of states for violations of state laws regarding mandatory reporting laws for sexual abuse of minors.
- Please remove Planned Parenthood from the list of approved guest speakers in our schools.
For any questions or to request digital copies of this material, contact Lisa Morris, 865-567-1245.
Please feel free to copy and distribute this information.
Note: Keep up with the latest on the No Planned Parenthood-Knox County Schools Facebook page.
