Obamacare Funding Planned Parenthood Sex Education Program
Taxpayers — through Obamacare — are funding Planned Parenthood to allow the organization to expand its sexual education and “risk reduction” program for ninth graders in places like southeastern Virginia.
Critics say the program does more to glorify and encourage sex than educate about its risks, even though Planned Parenthood has insisted the program teaches that “abstinence is the best and safest choice.”
Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia has received money from a $75 million pool set aside as part of Obamacare to teach the “Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP).
The introductory lesson, written by ETR Associations, teaches ninth graders that abstinence “means choosing not to do any sexual activity that carries a risk for pregnancy or STD/HIV” instead of abstaining from sexual acts.
The lessons also teach students how to “avert pregnancy and STDs in situations ranging from drinking and going for a ride with one’s boyfriend, to being alone at your boyfriend’s house in the absence of parents for several hours, and when your ‘boyfriend begins to kiss you and tries to take off your clothes.’”
