Sex Toys Demonstration To Fund Planned Parenthood
Sounding the alarm to get Planned Parenthood out of our schools.
(Portland, Ore) Should a sex toy demonstration be the main feature at a Planned Parenthood fund raiser, an organization that has access to schools? The March 26, 2013 fund raiser is for Planned Parenthood of the Columbia-Willamette (PPCW). The sex toy business is named She Bop, located in North Portland.
Planned Parenthood’s local fund raiser is called “Sexy Tuesdays” and will be hosted at a wine bar known as Shaker and Vine, 2929 SE Powell Blvd. in Portland. According to PPCW’s website, one purpose of Sexy Tuesdays is “to raise funds for PPCW’s health center services and education programs.”
PPCW’s fund raiser advertisement on their website reads, “In this class, you will learn about the origin of sex toys and their evolution throughout history. She Bop’s very own AJ (aka Amory Jane) will explain the different types of toys, what they are used for, what they are made from, as well as certain ingredients to be aware of when selecting the best product for you. She will also address how to maintain and store your toys so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible. Sipping vino and studying sex toys… who knew Tuesdays could be so sexy? We can’t wait to see you there!”
It’s obvious that this sex toy workshop is for adults, we get it. We are not accusing PPCW of sex toy demos in schools. This workshop is another example why we’re sounding the alarm that Planned Parenthood poses a clear danger to our school children! PPCW’s public image as a benevolent bunch of folks who provide health care services is an illusion. PPCW is in our schools to sexualize and desensitize children! Legislators and parents need to wake up to that fact. Planned Parenthood is dangerously inappropriate in schools.
I’m not alone in that regard. Last week, PPCW’s influential lobbying with the Portland Public School District and School Board has resulted in a Benson High School math and electronics teacher subjected to administrative leave for his objections to Planned Parenthood’s “sexologists” invading his classroom. Article. He will probably be fired. (Sexologist is a sex educator.)
The teacher, Bill Diss, was attempting to protect his students from the degrading topics that Planned Parenthood’s curriculum includes: masturbation, how to put on a condom, anal sex is acceptable, get an abortion when birth control fails, or get sterilized.
Planned Parenthood’s sexuality programs do not teach human fetal development or that risky sex is deadly. Rather, these programs teach school children that sex is pleasurable and a right, a social justice. In fact, “reproductive justice” is the current mission of the reproductive rights movement.
Dr. Miriam Grossman in her October 2009 talk at the Heritage Foundation about her book, “You’re Teaching My Child What?” notes that, “The principles of sexual health education are not based on hard science. Sex education is animated by a vision of how society must change, and because of this, sex ed curricula omit critical biological truths and endorse high-risk behaviors.” [http://report.heritage.org/hl1161]
Planned Parenthood’s K-12 sexuality curricula are their guaranteed access to future clients. Their revolving door marketing plan is brilliant: teach that sex is fun, sex is their right at any age, ignore the state’s age of consent law (Oregon’s is 18), give them contraceptives; and when these fail, get an abortion at Planned Parenthood. Most importantly, PPCW repeats the propaganda to legislators that the services they provide will prevent teen pregnancy. The opposite is true: more teens engage in underage sex due to these programs. It’s a clever ruse to gain access to schools and children.
Another strong objection is that PPCW receives revenue from our taxes to destroy the souls of children. Their 2010-2011 Annual Report shows tax revenue at $1.2 million, while donor contributions was a whopping $3.3 million. Clearly, the abortion and sex training corporation does not need our taxes.
One of these days Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, and Advocates for Youth — the principal federally funded sexuality trainers who all share the same ideology — will be kicked out of our schools. Until that time, I advise that parents either get an opt-out form for your child; or, better yet, send your child to a parochial school or home school them yourself.
