ACLU video a how-to guide to keep parents in dark

CA ACLU meetingLeaked video from a public school seminar in California shows an ACLU attorney coaching teachers about helping students hide abortions from their parents.

The video, recorded in June, also shows the attorney and school staff discussing explicit sex-ed lessons and how California law ensures students must sit through them without parental involvement. 

Our Watch, a conservative watchdog group led by Pastor Tim Thompson, released the video (see below) as part of its stated mission to wake up parents and churches about the far-left effort to influence their children. 

Thompson tells OneNewsNow the video shows Ruth Dawson, the ACLU attorney, training teachers on how to help students sneakily leave campus to obtain an abortion, or even transgender therapy, without a record of the absence. 

The public schools must mark them as present, he says, to ensure they receive public funding.  

“They’re talking to the districts on how to implement policies that would mark students as meeting with an administrator,” Thompson advises, “when in fact they've left campus for things like abortion.”

The Daily Caller, which obtained a copy of the video from Our Watch, reports that a member of Thompson’s team filmed the public meeting that was advertised as a curriculum discussion in Riverside County.

“In reality,” The Daily Caller reported, citing the video, “the meeting consisted of Cardea Services, a developmental and research group, and the ACLU teaching school districts how to keep parents unaware of subjects such as whether their children received abortions.”

In the video, the ACLU attorney advises the school staff that California law allows students to obtain service such as contraception, emergency contraception, and abortions without parental consent.

Elsewhere in the video, in a discussion about “gender theory,” teachers are advised by Dawson that students attempting to opt out of “LGBTQ stuff” is illegal and “should be impossible.”

The attorney's comment is likely a refence to the California Healthy Youth Act, passed in 2015, which required controversial sex-ed lessons now showing up in public school classrooms from kindergarten to high school.

OneNewsNow reported in an April story that parents were angered after learning their public school children are required to sit through lessons on "sexual orientation" and "gender identity."

For its story, The Daily Caller obtained a comment from the ACLU that stated Dawson’s presentation was “in accord with California law” and also claimed her remarks were “doctored” but did state what was distorted.

Thompson points out to OneNewsNow that the left-wing push for transgender ideology is appearing in more than just sex-ed curriculum.

“They've put it into things like language arts, history,” he says. “They put it in their school assemblies.”

The objective is obviously indoctrination, Thomson adds, but now it appears a second objective is to create a wall between impressionable children and unknowing parents.

And what happens when the parents find out? Very few respond to the indoctrination, he warns.

“Well, that's a problem,” Thompson says. “The parents need to engage.”
