Parents of 13- and 14-year-old students at Acalanes High School in California were shocked to discover that not only had their children taken part in a sexual education class taught by Planned Parenthood, but it covered far more than they were told in advance.
The Layfayette, California, school had given parents an opt-out form. But the information they were given about what would be covered was a minimal and — according to the parents — an inaccurate representation of what the organization actually taught their children.
A few of the most upsetting “lessons”:
- Using a “Genderbread Person,” students were taught they could choose their gender, rather than it being assigned at birth.
- Using a “Are You Ready for Sex” checklist, the students were taught how to prepare for sex. This included questions about condoms and water-based lubricant.
- Using a “Making Consent Clear” sheet, students were taught how to get “clear consent” by saying things like “Do you want to go back to my place?” and “Is it okay if I take off my pants?”
Reportedly, some of the children were 'distracted' due to the material being very different from what they had been taught at home about sex and relationships.
Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, told Fox News:
“[Parents] are very concerned. Planned Parenthood is not exactly the best when it comes to putting young people first.
They get more grants from the promiscuity of children.
The material they have provided was material that mirrored their agenda.
In response to the situation, some of the parents requested a live session be presented to parents before it is taught to students. They argue this would give parents the opportunity to be fully informed before opting their children into or out of the class.
The district has not yet responded to the request at the time of this report.
