The RH Bill will mandate comprehensive sex education for all children starting at fifth grade. Parents need to understand what this bill will mean for their children. Take into consideration that our children’s morality, their physical, psychological, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being are all at stake here. International organizations that do not have our children’s best interests in mind are colluding to develop and disseminate this curriculum they call “comprehensive sexual education” worldwide, and they will not stop until that goal is achieved. It’s already happening in many countries; let’s not make the mistake of thinking, “It’s not going to happen here.” Our best weapon is to educate ourselves now and investigate options that will prevent the corruption of our children’s minds and bodies.
Examining the evidence:
In the expo hall, there were dozens of booths with pornographic or sexually explicit materials or presentations.
At the Fundacion Collectivo de Mujeres Jovenes booth,which was staffed by two middle-aged men, the presentation largely consisted of a collection of thong underwear hung up around the booth, as well as a “snakes and ladders” floor game with puffy dice.
Other highlights of the expo included a live demonstration showing how to put a condom onto a phallus, an organization whose only “literature” consisted of pornographic post cards, and a booth with a large Twister-like floor pad, with cartoonish depictions of human genitals replacing the familiar colored circles of the classic game.
Four goals: universal education; gender equality; maternal health; and HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases were analyzed from a youth, sexual and reproductive health and rights perspective.
This comprehensive guide is a useful tool for young activists to understand the MDGs in a broad development framework, and also for individuals and organizations who work within the MDG context to incorporate a youth perspective.
– Youth Coalition
The Millennium Development Goal (MDG) framework, which currently drives the development agenda, lacks an important youth analysis and perspective, even though young people are disproportionately affected by many of the development issues addressed by the goals. – p. 7
Primary education is a crucial stage when children and adolescents begin to form attitudes about sex, gender roles, and sexual identity. As such, it is also an opportunity for change in social attitudes and norms to occur. – p. 11
Education is incomplete without sexual and reproductive health and rights information and education. Education is incomplete if children and adolescents do not learn about gender equality and human rights. Incomplete or inaccurate education, such as promo- tion of abstinence only education, violates young people’s human rights and can negatively impact their ability to make informed decisions about all aspects of their lives. – p. 12
Full access to sexual and reproductive health information and services is also considered critical (Millennium Project – Child and Maternal Health). This includes having access to comprehensive SRH education that enables her to make informed decisions about all as- pects of her sexual and reproductive lives and access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services, including modern, safe contraceptives, the means to protect herself from STIs/HIV and safe abortion services. – p. 16
All that may sound noble, until you look at the bigger picture.
From Sex in the Classroom:
Miami Psychiatrist James Parsons, for example, actively opposes any sex education in primary schools because “there is a latency period, between the age of six and the time of puberty, of sexual interest.” Forcing sex education on children in this period can cause them to “become overstimulated and obsessed” and can “produce perversion in adults.”
The Planned Parenthood educators are silent on the tremendous danger of venereal disease and death. Dr. Rhoda Lorand, a New York city psychotherapist has written a fierce indictment of modern sex education for their silence on the growing problem of cancer of the cervix among sexually active girls, and Planned Parenthood material, as Mary Calderone says, promotes this activity or experimentation.
Dr. Lorand stated in “Betrayal of Youth”:
One does not have to be a religious fanatic to recognize nature’s message; the vulnerable, immature reproductive system of the pubescent and adolescent girls is at risk of being prematurely damaged by prematurely engaging in the adult sexual activity of coitus.
Statistical studies showed that sex programs actually increased adolescent pregnancy, and mostly in the areas receiving the most lavish expenditures. As expected, promiscuity, so-called unwanted pregnancy and the need for abortion increased too. Studies showed that youngsters who received the new instruction were more likely to engage in sexual activity at early ages, but the promoters were undeterred.
Even organizations as supposedly “benign” as the Girl Scouts of America have been part of this worldwide push to promote promiscuity.
The excerpts above and below came from a Planned Parenthood booklet distributed by the Girl Scouts of America at a United Nations meeting last year.
More to come.
