A pro-family organization is raising awareness that a teachers’ union has drifted so far left it now supports aborting future students.
The liberal National Education Association, already no stranger to far-left causes, drew the attention of the Mississippi-based American Family Association after approving a pro-abortion resolution at its annual convention last week.
“The NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person's right to control their own body, especially for women, youth and sexually marginalized people,” the resolution states in part.
“As if that wasn't bad enough, the NEA went on to suggest that pro-lifers are 'misogynistic forces' who 'want to abolish the gains of women's right movement,'" Tim Wildmon, AFA’s president, says of the controversial resolution.
"Reading these quotes,” he continues, “I have to ask myself how an organization charged with making school a safe haven for kids, and a good workplace for teachers, can be so anti-children in its beliefs?”
The answer, he concludes, is that the NEA has “morphed” into a far-left special interest group with an “extreme” agenda.
An AFA “Action Alert” urges the public to contact the NEA, both the national headquarters and state offices, and urge its leaders to drop the pro-abortion stand.
The NEA resolution is "way out of line" even for an organization that has followed liberal politics for years, says Walker Wildmon, AFA vice president.
“Abortion is nothing more than a culture of death,” the AFA alert states. “The NEA should rethink its support of it.”
