Halt! sign STOP!Thanks to the efforts of a Pennsylvania pro-family organization, an affiliate of Planned Parenthood was banned from opening a "health resource center" in a local high school.

AccessMatters, a Philadelphia-based partner of Planned Parenthood, petitioned the Valley Grove School Board to let them establish a clinic in the high school. Once she learned that, Diane Gramley of American Family Association of Pennsylvania went into action and helped halt the proposal.

"The Valley Grove School District, on the 11th of February, decided that there were just too many unanswered questions and concerns of privacy – and they decided not to give the green light for the establishment of those clinics in the high school," Gramley informs. (See earlier story)

A major concern with having AccessMatters in high schools, she says, is that parents wouldn't be told of their child's visit to the resource center.

Gramley, Diane (AFA of Pennsylvania)"Parents would not know what takes place within these centers," she emphasizes. "They would be completely in the dark as to what information was given their child and what products were given [to their child]. All of that would be top-secret information."

AFA of Pennsylvania also expresses its concern that AccessMatters claims to promote "safer sexual behavior, including access to and correct use of condoms and other safer sex options."

Gramley says the Cranberry and Oil City School Districts have not yet been approached – but that her organization is working to make sure those school boards have the truth about AccessMatters when they are approached.
