Lawmakers dangle deceptive 'carrot' in MD

pregnant and in schoolThe major pro-life organization in Maryland sees abortion-minded legislators in the state working to influence children by assaulting their innocence and allowing Planned Parenthood to "infiltrate" schools.

Several abortion-related bills are under consideration in Annapolis, and according to Laura Bogley of Maryland Right to Life (MDRTL), one of special concern (HB0401/SB0438) is to develop a policy and reporting system for pregnant or parenting students.

"The bill would authorize the state to develop a model policy regarding pregnant students and require county school systems to implement that policy, which … will involve collaboration and contracts with third-party organizations that promote abortion through curriculum, provider training, and school-based health clinic practices," Bogley explains.

That could place Planned Parenthood types and pro-aborts in the position to do the teaching and the training. MDRTL says it cannot support any policy or programs that allow the abortion business to "peddle their deadly ware to vulnerable school girls."

Another measure (HB1056/SB0827) would provide incentive for private schools to adopt the same programs.

"It's a big carrot and even a bigger stick," the pro-lifer asserts. "What they're doing is they're offering financial inducements to private schools to allow the state to define and operate, or help them to operate, define the terms to operate health clinics, health services within private schools."

Religious schools are also defined as private and will be denied state funds unless they implement the pro-abortion policies.

Bogley stresses that at no stage has the state education agency permitted any pro-life input in developing the legislation.
