Planned Parenthood still in schools, compliments of the feds

sex educationA pro-life organization is voicing concerns over how the Trump administration has spent federal tax dollars in a grant for Planned Parenthood-based sex education.

Health and Human Services' Office of Population Affairs has announced a three-year grant of a little over $2 million to Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, which covers Iowa and Nebraska and as far north as Minnesota and North Dakota. Jim Sedlak of the American Life League (ALL) explains that the grant is for sex education for public schools in those areas.

Sedlak claims the sex-ed curriculum produced by Planned Parenthood promotes the agenda that one would expect from the nation's largest abortion provider.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)"First it wants to get sex education into the schools to turn kids onto sex and to get them involved in sex – and then it sells them contraceptives while they're having sex," says the ALL spokesman. "And then when the contraceptives fail, because they all fail a percentage of the time, they sell them abortions."

He contends this isn't the only questionable action of the money-minded organization, as Planned Parenthood has been known to harvest body parts and tissue from aborted babies to sell for a profit. Sedlak also they're also guilty of violating laws in numerous states by supplying abortions for underaged girls without parental consent.

"The fact that this administration would see fit to send $2 million over three years to Planned Parenthood of the Heartlands to implement their outrageous version of sex education is absolutely horrible," Sedlak exclaims.

The pro-life group Live Action points out federal funding streams to the abortion giant are "extremely widespread and varied," so defunding Planned Parenthood isn't as simple as passing one law or issuing one executive order. Still, says Live Action, removing Planned Parenthood from any sex-ed programs would be one step toward defunding.
