The Obama administration has handed over $5 million in taxpayers' dollars so Planned Parenthood can pump its version of sex education into children, some as young as five, in Southwest Iowa.

Ricky A. Rohrig of the Pregnancy Center of Southwest Iowa says Planned Parenthood was booted from Iowa schools many years ago when parents learned they were graphically teaching children about condom use and using stuffed animals to demonstrate sexual positions.

"And the parents were not informed prior to their youth being taught this," he tells OneNewsNow.

Rohrig says three small communities are being targeted this time by Planned Parenthood, and 120 residents attended an informational meeting recently in one of the communities. Most of them were opposed to Planned Parenthood's involvement, he says.

Iowa Right to Life has received communications as far away as Hawaii supporting the battle against Planned Parenthood's program.
