Planned Parenthood Targets Children Just Like Big Tobacco

This is a rather timely piece given the recent dust up over the news that Elton John has become a father. The comments I have been getting over my view on this doubt there is any reason to be concerned about gay couples raising a child. We now have Planned Parenthood launching a "social justice initiative" that seeks to normalize sex among our children. From CNS News:
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is signaling its intention to dominate the national sex education agenda.

Specifically, Planned Parenthood's Web site announced the group is preparing to launch a nationwide “social change initiative” to end the “stigma and shame about sex” in American culture.

The project aims to teach parents and caregivers how to educate children about sex -- from birth. And it recommends telling teenagers about masturbation, oral sex and “where to go for help to prepare to be sexually active.”

The “Real Life. Real Talk” initiative began as a pilot program in communities in Maine, New York, Connecticut, and Arizona between 2004 and 2008, according to a report about the initiative that is for sale on the project’s Web site.

Now Planned Parenthood is preparing to launch the program nationwide, with funding from donors and private groups, including The Ford Foundation.

“Real Life. Real Talk" is based on the belief that reducing the shame and stigma attached to sex also reduces a barrier to sexual and reproductive health services, eventually reducing the rates of sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS, and unintended pregnancies.

The initiative is geared to parents and caregivers of children aged 8 to 18. In the four pilot states, parents were invited to attend workshops where they received Planned Parenthood’s guide to “Sex Ed for Parents, Real Life. Real Talk." The events were held at different community venues, including schools, churches, social services facilities and libraries.

The "Real Life. Real Talk" guide, offered in English and Spanish, is tailored to specific groups of parents and caregivers, including grandparents raising their grandchildren, “queer parents,” and parents of children in elementary school.”

A "Parent Tips" section of the "Real Life. Real Talk" Web site says children are never too young to learn about sex. It states, in part:

“A child’s sexuality, sexual feelings, and sexual attitudes develop from the moment of Birth -- even before a child can speak. In fact, children start learning about sexuality through observation of family interaction and surroundings. When you don’t talk with your children about sexuality, you may give them the message that there is something wrong with sexuality and that it is not a topic you’re willing to discuss.”
Planned Parenthood is concerned about social change are they? The kind of change that keeps their abortion dollars coming in is what they are really after. How better can they do that then getting your child to engage in sexual activity? Seems like they have taken a page out of the tobacco industry's playbook.

I want to draw specific attention to their understanding that a child forms sexual attitudes at an early age. So imagine how the normalization of homosexuality will be furthered by having more and more children raised by gay couples? Regardless of how these kids turn out later in life, they will likely be habituated to thinking that any form of sexual expression is normal and equally valid. Of course those advocating for gay adoption will appeal to pity and play on your emotions to get you to appease this radical agenda. But in the end the objective is always the same, total and unconditional acceptance and promotion of homosexuality.
