Graphic Sex Ed for Ten Year Olds - Not on Our Watch!
February 11, 2010
SIOUX FALLS, SD, (christiansunite.com) -- A new report by the International Planned Parenthood Federation is recommending that children as young as 10 years old receive mandatory graphic sex education, which includes teaching them the "pleasures of sex."
The report, "Stand and Deliver" recommends -- in fact, demands -- that children as young as 10 should be seen as "sexual beings." Further, the report criticizes religious institutions such as Catholicism and Islam for placing tremendous barriers on the ability of young people to receive information and services related to sex and that these teachings "deny the pleasurable and positive aspects of sex."
Leslee Unruh, spokesperson for the Abstinence Clearinghouse, said, "They are intentionally ignoring the role of parents in this report. Parents have and should always be the primary sex educators of their children. However, Planned Parenthood knows that the earlier they capture the children's minds, the greater the odds the children will adopt their secular world view. Further, coming from a group whose future relies on funding from failed contraception and abortions, the connection isn't hard to make," she said. "This is an aggressive political agenda, meant to make Planned Parenthood a lot more money."
Lastly, Unruh stated, "Early graphic sex education is a proven failed strategy that only molests the minds of the children who experience it. We are committed to ensuring our nation's greatest resource, our youth, is protected. Parents, will you stand with us to prevent this sexualization of our children from happening?"
The Abstinence Clearinghouse, with offices in Sioux Falls, SD and Washington, DC, was built on the foundation that parents are the primary sex educators of their children. The mission of the Abstinence Clearinghouse is to promote the appreciation for and practice of sexual abstinence until marriage through the distribution of age appropriate, factual and medically-referenced materials.
