Planned Parenthood held a conference for children, without their parents, that included distribution of a book deemed pornography by critics.
The "Nobody's Fool" 2004 conference in Waco, Texas, this week was from start to finish a "thinly veiled attack on parental rights, public morality and the health and well-being of our children," asserted Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International, a group that monitors Planned Parenthood.
Parents were not permitted to attend the conference, which was limited to children in the fifth through ninth grades, ages 10-14, Sedlak said.
"Planned Parenthood barred mothers and fathers from attending the actual sessions because Planned Parenthood knows that parental participation would have hampered its efforts to indoctrinate these children into its world of lies and propaganda," he contended.
Children in grades seven through nine received a free copy of the book, "It's Perfectly Normal."
The controversial sex-ed primer contains detailed explanations on how to perform sexual acts and masturbation, accompanied by sexually explicit line drawings.
"This so-called 'educational text' is nothing more than pornography in comic book form," stated Sedlak.
This is irresponsible at best and child abuse at worst," he added.
On its website, Planned Parenthood of Central Texas says the purpose of the conference is "to provide teens and pre-teens with factual information about growing up, puberty, dating, relationships, sexual issues and sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS."
The group says, "We hope this education will encourage better communication between teens and their parents. Most of all, we want your teen or pre-teen to learn how to make the most of his or her strengths and approach relationships of all kinds responsibly."
One year ago, John Pisciotta, a Baylor University economics professor, led a successful boycott of the Bluebonnet Council of the Girl Scouts in Waco because of its co-sponsorship of last year's "Nobody's Fool" conference.
Planned Parenthood passed out a book, that included the Girl Scouts logo and chapters on masturbation and homosexuality, to young girls. The book also had images of couples having sex and a boy wearing a condom.
Pisciotta took action after the council named Texas Planned Parenthood Executive Director Pam Smallwood its 2003 "Woman of Distinction."
As a result of national attention gained by the boycott, parents began removing their girls from the Scouts, leading to the closure of several troops and a decision by the council to not sponsor future conferences.
In an editorial in the Waco Tribune-Herald, Smallwood responded: "The children of Central Texas now have been given the clear message that the bullying tactics of a few are more successful than an informed democracy."
STOPP International has worked closely over the past several years with Pro-Life Waco to reduce Planned Parenthood's influence on their community, notes Sedlak.
But the problems will persist, he says, "until parents and all people of good will across the nation stand together to oppose Planned Parenthood's continued assault on our families and children."
Planned Parenthood is one of the most left-wing, Marxist group ever to gain widespread acceptance in America. Unfortunately, the public completely unaware of how insidious this group is.
|And whose fault is that?|
Someone needs to take out the garbage in this country. Let's start with these folks.
More crap from Eugenics-R-Us...
The govt should NOT interfere ....
.... when the parents decide to take matters in their own hands and rif their schools of the immoral radicals.
The Second Amendment is a good deterent for all kinds of TYRANICAL govt bodies.
You are about as full of shiite, as one can be... go take a dump!
OK, but the parents sent their children to this conference, right? Why did they do it?
Sounds like a story referenced in Sean Hannity's new book Deliver Us From Evil. There was this priest Robert Burkholder that molested 20 boys when he was young. He was now 82 years old being prosecuted for his crimes. Here is the priests claims,"The boys work in the rectory with the priest and you just get friendly." Also referring to oral sex the priest goes on, "It's a friendship between 2 people that has been made into something horrible, rotten."
It's amazing how someone can distort sexual abuse and try to justify it, just like Planned Parenthood is doing.
Planned Parenthoods have so many different names now. I drive around my city and see them. You can spot them a mile away. They all do the same thing.
Last year alone, they lost 170,000 voters in the future. Disgusting.
One thing I fail to comprehend, the "doctors" that do this. Sorry, I don't get it considering their oath.
I presume that most of these parents are early "post baby boomers" who grew up with legal abortion and were taught sex education in school in the 70s and 80s. In short, they are already as brainwashed as the left wants to make their children.
What did I say to offend you?
I have a habit of tapping my keys when I get annoyed. I have been tapping.
These are kids ages 10-14. They have no driver's license. How do they get to this conference unless their parents allow them to attend and drive them there?
Did parents actually take their daughters to this????
No kidding. Any parent who would let their kids go to an event where they are forbidden is an idiot.
I am not a big L libertairian, but have had enough of being abused by W (whom I will vote for in Nov...). What gets me is your attitude that lumps people...that is called bigotry!
Have you seen the way parents allow their daughters to dress these days?
I admit it, I'm a bigot. All libertarians are sissies.
Isn't parental PERMISSION REQUIRED?
LIBERALtarians are something to be ashamed of. They have NO moral boundaries.
