Planned Parenthood says "Young People are Sexual Beings"

I first saw this article over at A Catholic View. It truly shows how the pro-death movement attempts to twist and pervert sexuality on a daily basis:
New York, NY ( -- In its new report "Stand and Deliver," the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) is demanding that governments, religious institutions and society at large provide "comprehensive sexuality education" for children as young as ten years old.

In a foreword, Bert Koenders of the Development Cooperation of the Netherlands, which helped fund the publication, asserts that, "Young people have the right to be fully informed about sexuality and to have access to contraceptives and other services. These rights are enshrined in various internationally agreed human rights convention and treaties, but – unfortunately – they are still not universally respected."

According to IPPF, as "young people are sexual beings," it should be self-evident that "sexuality education promotes individual well-being and the advancement of broader societal and public health goals." IPPF argues that "comprehensive sexuality education" must be mandatory in school, and governments must also ensure that this education is delivered to those young people who are out of school.

IPPF claims that "With young people as partners, today's adult decision-makers have the chance to recast sex and sexuality as a positive force for change and development, as a source of pleasure, an embodiment of human rights and an expression of self."

IPPF contends that comprehensive sexuality education is necessary to encourage young people's "self-esteem, thoughtful decision-making and negotiation skills and it helps them to develop satisfying and pleasurable sexual lives." Moreover, IPPF expounds that the "power" of comprehensive sexuality education "to challenge traditional gender roles" must not be underestimated.

This goes hand in hand with Education Czar Kevin Jennings ideas for "education" in our schools. So much for just letting kids be kids. I was still playing with dolls when I was ten!


  1. I admit I have mixed feelings on this one--I went to a school with comprehensive sexuality education at the high school level that covered pretty much everything. We had sex ed from the 5th grade on, but it mostly covered puberty and mandatory AIDS safety education. The education I got at 16 I wouldn't want taught to a 10 year old!

    Then again, I didn't get any kind of sex ed in the home. My parents figured the school would teach me what I needed to know.

  2. I'll tell you one thing. If I even hear an inkling of this idea being used at the school district we're planning on having our kids attend, I'll be homeschooling for sure.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
