Pro-Family Group in This 'Deep Blue State' Fights to Protect Children

Did you know Planned Parenthood is attempting to reach your children by infiltrating their schools, not through clubs and one-time speeches, but by taking control of the curricula from which they are being taught?

The Get Real series of classroom materials produced by Planned Parenthood is meant to teach children as young as kindergarten-age about human sexuality. It also teaches children as young as 12 how to use Saran Wrap for non-reproductive sexual acts that most adults would find offensive.

So, to make his point in opposition to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's efforts to push through a new curriculum bill aimed at adding the "Get Real" series to the state's mandatory course work, Massachusetts Family Institute President Andrew Beckwith brought along a few boxes of the plastic wrap. He called it a "visual reminder of what this bill would force on our schools and children."

"This bill takes control over sex education of out the hands of local school districts and gives it to state bureaucrats," he said. "Parents and teachers should be able to decide for themselves what is best for the students in their own community."

A version of this same bill passed the state senate last year, but was stalled in the House of Representatives. This year's version, Beckwith said, contains a number of very disturbing additions, including:

  • local schools would be required to teach about abortion as one of the "options for pregnancy," and
  • teachers would be forced to give an "affirmative representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, relationships and families."

"When I ask legislators or concerned parents how they would define a 'bisexual relationship' as required by these bills, I am usually met with confused looks," Beckwith said. "This begs the question: Exactly what type of discussion is that going to be for school children as young as kindergarten?"
