Alliance Defending Freedom Attorney Natalie Decker is concerned about a Tempe Union High School Districts Sex Education Curriculum Committee meeting Tuesday. Planned Parenthood of Arizona is scheduled to advocate for representatives to present sex education to students, which may violate state law requiring preference be given to childbirth and adoption, not abortion. Alliance Defending Freedom sent the district a letter Monday requesting the committee allot time during its meeting to speakers to present alternative programs that encourage and support childbirth and adoption as preferred options to elective abortion. According to the committees published agenda, Planned Parenthood of Arizona has one-and-a-half hours to promote its abortion-promoting sex education program while citizens will have less than 15 minutes to express their views on this issue.
Schoolchildren have the right to a positive education that is not dictated by Planned Parenthoods abortion marketing campaign, said Decker. It would be a terrible mistake for the district to allow Planned Parenthood to teach sex education to students. Students and parents deserve better. This is a very important issue which requires much more time to present and consider than has been allotted to the public. There are many viable alternative programs available at no cost to the district that support abstinence, childbirth, and adoption instead of abortion.
The Alliance Defending Freedom letter explains that Arizona Senate Bill 1009 was enacted in April 2012 and mandates that no Arizona school district may allow any presentation during instructional time or furnish any materials to pupils as part of any instruction that does not give preference, encouragement and support to childbirth and adoption as preferred options to elective abortion. Planned Parenthood should not be allowed access to public school classrooms to promote its pro-abortion message and to advocate for dangerous sexual behavior to Tempe schoolchildren, added Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. We hope the committee and the district will reevaluate their decision and provide students with a curriculum that promotes life, human dignity, and is truthful about the dangers of sexual promiscuity.
Teaching children this stuff can be traumatizing.
This is normal for them, not just in Arizona
It’s normal for them but according to the article not normal for Arizona.
do we let coke come into schools and teach kids about how soda rounds out a nutritious daily meal plan?
do we let drug dealers talk to classes about the joys of getting hooked on drugs?
do we let thieves come and teach kids pickpocketing and how to identify easy targets for scams?
then why the hell are we letting planned eugenics in to drum up potential future clients and corrupt tose kids who aren’t yet corrupted, as well as giving more info to those already dabbling in premarital sex?
