'High-risk' sex-ed behind the veneer, says activist

sex educationNumerous school districts in Ohio have adopted a comprehensive sex-ed program called "Healthy Bodies/Healthy Futures" – a title one family values advocate says is clearly misleading.

Ohio-based Syntero says its comprehensive sex education (CSE) program is designed to "empower teens." It claims to do that with "curriculum that aligns with the National Sex Education Standards to teach age-appropriate, medically accurate information and skills needed to face tough issues, make sound choices, and practice healthy behaviors."

But Linda Harvey of Mission: America points out the lessons produced by the Syntero group, which are aimed at middle schoolers, promote many deviant techniques employed by pedophiles to "groom" children for the sex trade.

"These CSE programs, comprehensive sex ed programs, are now willing to normalize bondage and sadomasochism, group sex, and every other high-risk behavior out there as if this is written by the pornography industry," she tells OneNewsNow.

In a recent column, Harvey describes the contents of the Syntero program as "deeply disturbing, dangerous, even possibly criminal." Among the online resources recommended by Healthy Bodies/Healthy Futures, she explains, are two specific websites that promote "high-risk, promiscuous sex in explicit posts."

"Any wise parent with a child in public school has already figured out that sometimes you are being deceived," she writes – arguing that's the case with the Syntero curriculum. As she points out, Ohio has a law mandating that abstinence be encouraged until marriage – a law that leftists largely ignore, she adds.

"But one of the problems is that you get activist teachers and administrators in schools and they partner with these outside groups, like Syntero – and what you get is a witch's brew of very dangerous and high-risk messages to kids," she describes.

Harvey urges parents to contact their schools to find out exactly what their children are being taught.
