Parents fear likely results of PP's 'teen outreach'

Not many parents are aware that Planned Parenthood has secured millions in ObamaCare funding for its sex education course. But when parents do find out about it, their outrage changes things.

Without parents' knowledge, Planned Parenthood is being awarded $75 million annually to enter public schools in the nation's Northwest to teach its "Teen Outreach Program" to students. Jim Sedlak of the American Life League (ALL) describes the likely outcomes of this course.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)"The kids are going to get involved in sexual activities, there are going to be increases in teen pregnancies, there [are] going to be increases in sexually transmitted diseases and all other kinds of problems from this promiscuous sexual activity," he warns. "And the parents are going to be wondering what happened."

Sedlak recalls what happened when parents in Salem, Oregon, discovered the true nature of the course.

"They turned out in force at the school board meeting, insisting that a public hearing be held and that all of the facts about this be aired," he reports.

Likewise, when parents in Houston, Texas, discovered a similar program was going to be implemented, they rose up and forced the school district to cancel the course a week before it was to begin.

So the ALL spokesman encourages parents, grandparents, pastors, and "all those who care about children and the survival of our society" to find out what their schools are teaching children about sex and to take a stand against Planned Parenthood-style "comprehensive" curriculum.

An article featured on the ALL website insists that doing so "could be the key to saving hundreds of thousands of children from lives of sexual enslavement that prevents them from finding and living God's plan for their lives."
