January-February 2018 – When the Cumberland County, North Carolina, school board approved a Planned Parenthood sex ed program for its middle schools, parents fought back. Hundreds of parents complained about the Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum that assumes all children are sexually active, and focuses on sexual preferences, LGBTQ education, and contraception. (See AFA Journal, 9/17.)
“I don’t need somebody else teaching my kids … the myths and facts about sexuality.” parent Nick Quello said. “That’s something the parents need to do. I just don’t think that’s appropriate for a 12-year-old, whether it be a boy or a girl. The school board needs to stay out of our homes.”
After the outpouring of parental complaints, the Cumberland County Board of Education decided to hold off implementing the program, pending review of the curriculum.
As the nation’s largest abortion provider, PP continues to face threats of taxpayer funding cuts and FBI investigation following years of numerous scandals, including Medicaid fraud, allegations of child sex abuse cover-up, and alleged profiting from the sale of aborted baby body parts.
