Until the adults in the room decide to stand up and demand that sex education should be restricted to the biology of reproduction and not the teaching of sexual pleasures, our vulnerable children will continue to be exposed to sexually explicit curricula disquised as "reproductive health education."

Today's newsletter focuses on the New Morning Foundation's supposed "authoritative" document, based on outdated surveys and FOIA requests, which claims to expose whether school districts are complying with SC Law regarding "reproductive health education." The report attempts to build a case that a majority of school districts are not following the Law and should be held accountable, while at the same time ignoring parts of SC Law that the Planned Parenthood Network is violating.

Fifty years of training and indoctrinating the American people that sexual pleasures are an entitlement, sexual boundaries are arbitrary, marriage and fidelity are an alternative lifestyle, and that sexual exploitation is normal and expected has weakened every segment of our society. We must seriously look at what is happening during the eighteen years prior to legal adulthood, when future leaders are being parented, educated and trained. Waiting until they are adults is disregarding future generations.

The Contraception Mandate under Obamacare claims to insure the health and welfare of women, children, and families by offering a "full range of preventive services" at "no charge" through employee health insurance plans. However, it only covers FDA approved contraception and their services. Any female with 'reproductive capacity' can receive "FREE" "contraception," counseling, and education without parental knowledge or consent. Could the Mandate violate civil rights by marginalizing and disenfranchising a segment of the population - women, children, families, men and taxpayers - who want Abstinence Education taught and do not want to be forced to pay for something that violates their religion, liberty or conscience? They are being denied access to Abstinence Education and services which would surely benefit their family's health and safety?

American parents of 9-16 year olds, who were also likely voters in the national elections last week, overwhelmingly want Abstinence Education taught to their children. When parents across race, gender, and political affiliation are asked about the content of authentic Abstinence Education they want it. They also strongly oppose the defunding of Abstinence Education in public schools.

We all need to be reminded that a huge part of fighting the US HSS mandates for contraception, sterilization and abortion begins in the local school districts. Planned Parenthood Sex Education, which is Sex-only education to our minor children, fuels the sexual activity that has driven the demand for these entitlements. The answer is quite simple; teach abstinence. The farther away we get from this basic human life skill, abstaining from all sexual activity until marriage, the worse it gets.

Summary: The failure of Comprehensive Sex Education is obvious in New York City's agenda to reduce teen pregnancies. Continuing a failed ideology of teaching children the pleasures of sex and then expecting them not to participate in sex is insane. And, then to cover-up these failures by dispensing emergency contraception so that pregnancies are not recorded is unconscionable.

If parents want to hang onto their rights to protect and provide for their children, rather than let the government take over, they need to pay attention to all of that paperwork that is sent home when school starts. Permission forms to teach your child about sexual activity may or may not be in the stack. Don't let your child be exposed to unacceptable sexual ideology just because you never knew about the sex education in your schools.

The National Abstinence Education Association released Part 1 of a report exposing the hypocrisy of Comprehensive Sex Education in America. Not only has Comprehensive Sex Education failed to increase abstinence and decrease sexual activity among teens, it has apparently hidden their lack of results behind questionable research. Now, generations have been duped into thinking that sex is just sport and condoms can protect them.

Summary: One would think that science trumps ideology, especially where the lives of children are concerned. However, some are so bent on sexual freedom that they will reject any and all scientific conclusions to justify their lifestyle. When all in favor of really protecting children from sexual exploitation take a proactive stand, perhaps science and reason will prevail.

After 17 years and three studies reaffirming the success of the Heritage Keepers® Abstinence Education Program, US Health and Human Services added it to the Federal list of evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs. What does that mean? It means that for the first time (ever) there is now a proven-effective, evidence-based authentic abstinence-until-marriage education program qualified to receive Federal support and funding. This is earth shattering news! The so-called Safe Sex-perts are livid, demanding an explanation from HHS and have kept the blogosphere busy with such exclamations as, "Heritage Keepers® has cracked the holy grail".

The Teen Birth Rate in America has declined since the 1950's to the point that it is at an all time low. Yet, the "Safe Sex-only" Cartels, including Planned Parenthood, SIECUS, Advocates for Youth, Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and the ACLU, are determined to fabricate a crisis so that they can justify mandating "Safe Sex-only" Education to all school age children. "Safe Sex-only" propaganda is the norm, but CDC data paints another picture…abstinence education works and this fact is creating hope for future generations.

Telling the truth is always the best policy. Authentic Abstinence Education programs like Heritage Community Services tell the truth about sexual activity outside of marriage and should be required in at least all middle and high schools. Heritage KeepersŪ; is one of over twenty proven and effective abstinence education programs in the US, many of which have had to close their doors and/or lay off passionate educators due to the elimination of funds and the transfer of those funds to the Planned parenthood networks of pro-teen sex, "contraception"-only programs. "Safe Sex" programs do not typically operate under the same level of transparency and accountability as Abstinence Education programs. What do they have to hide? More than you can imagine.

Summary: Minors are sexually exploited when taught "Safe Sex" because they cannot legally consent to sex with anyone. Why is "Safe Sex" or Comprehensive Sex Education mandated for our minor children? "Safe Sex" has been shown for 40 years to increase sex and therefore chaotic family formation driving up entitlements and healthcare cost. This is insane!

Obama and Sebelius administration redefines Abstinence Education so that the Planned Parenthood Network has access to all Teen Pregnancy Prevention funding. If successful, Abstinence Education Programs will disappear.

Many in America have never known a day without contraception, abortion, sexual freedom and the more than 70 different welfare programs it takes to subsidize the consequences. And, many still don't know that Planned Parenthood has never been about 'choice', but rather preying on, grooming and developing a client base that needs their services. It's never really been about mammograms, STD testing and taking care of poor women. It's always been about money, power and creating dependent generations that seek sexual pleasures to their own peril. Since 1970, single-parent families have tripled, births to unmarried women have doubled, and there has been no net increase in the number of married families with children.
