Planned Parenthood (PP) is at it again! The organization offered to establish “Wellbeing Centers” within 50 Los Angles public schools and split the cost with the school board—and it’s a done deal! The ‘contract’ is good for three years at a cost of $6 million paid by PP (PP is funded largely by federal funds—taxpayer money) and $10 million footed by taxpayers of Los Angles County.
The Centers will provide sexually-transmitted disease testing and treatment, pregnancy counseling, and offer a range of birth control options to students. In addition, teens will be trained to become “peer advocates” to advocate for PP’s “safe sex.” No abortions will be performed on site, though it’s obvious that students who want an abortion will have ready referral to those services, as well.
On the surface, all sounds well. However, the ‘approval’ of sexual activity made ‘safe’ so there’s no disease transmitted or baby conceived only increases students’ comfort level with such behavior and actually approves it. Within the stated services being offered to students, there’s apparently no mention of the sanctity of marriage.
Speaking of parental rights or lack thereof, neither parents or school administrators will be permitted to access what occurs in appointments students make with Center personnel unless the student gives their permission (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/planned-parenthood-infiltrates-50-california-public-schools, Friday, December 13, 2019). So, minors have more rights than their parents on this front, though uninformed parents are held financially responsible if medical procedures incur expense.
Florida, on the other hand, just passed legislation that requires abortionists to have a “notarized written statement signed by a minor and either her mother, her father, or her legal guardian” agreeing that “the abortion is in the best interest of the minor.” According to ABC News, the legislation was passed the week of February 17, 2020 (http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/florida-senate-votes-to-force-abortionists-to-get-parental-consent, Friday, February 21, 2020.)
At their core, these are not political or economic issues. Sexual activity and abortion are moral issues, and our nation is being engulfed by immorality in many ‘costumes’ that hide its seriousness! Our children are being sexualized by our schools!
As parents and community leaders, we need to rise up and take a stand against this perversity of law! We need to protect our children and their innocence from being ravaged by legal voyeurism. Attend school board meetings and speak up about proposed policies that will harm your children. Contact your legislators at the state and federal levels and voice your opposition to bills that violate your moral standards. Wake up and take action before it’s too late!
