Pregnancy and Planned Parenthood news
Parents are standing up against Planned Parenthood infiltrating Iowa schools.
The Obama Administration has put forth more than $5 million towards Planned Parenthood providing sex education to the children, some as young as 5, but pro-lifers and concerned parents are working to keep the abortion giant away from Iowa children, according to One News Now.
According to Ricky A. Rohrig of the Pregnancy Center of Southwest Iowa, Planned Parenthood was already run out of their schools several years ago after the parents realized exactly what they were teaching their young children. One News Now reported that Planned Parenthood was “graphically teaching children about condom use and using stuffed animals to demonstrate sexual positions.” Rohrig went on to say the parents “were not informed prior to their youth being taught this.”
Rohrig explained that three Iowa communities are currently being targeted by the abortion corporation. An informational meeting recently was held by one of these communities with 120 concerned residents in attendance, according to the report.
Iowa Right to Life Executive Director Jenifer Bowen explained more in an email:
This is for the so-called “The President’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” This grant targets children from Kindergarten-12th grade in the following counties: Woodbury, Pottawattamie, Mills and Page Counties in Iowa and Dakota and Douglas Counties in Nebraska.
… Planned Parenthood made national news back in 2010 for getting kicked out of Shenandoah for the obscene things they were teaching in the classroom.
Stanton, Iowa, is one of the targeted cities. Concerned parents, Rod and Tricia Goodemote, became alarmed when they received notice that Stanton kindergartners-3rd graders were supposed to be taught about “sexual abuse” through a program called “Ready Set kNOw.”
Why the alarm? The teacher who plans to lead these classes is none other than Planned Parenthood staffer, Jennifer Horner!! She is the SAME woman who was kicked out of Shenandoah classrooms in 2010.
The class has indefinitely been postponed, as concerned parents continue to request that the Stanton school leadership stand against Planned Parenthood’s efforts to reach children as little as 5!!!
This isn’t the first time this year that Iowa has encountered a Planned Parenthood controversy. In April a measure that would have cut funding to the corporation was killed, LifeNews recently reported on the incident. The defunding measure was part of a health and human services budget bill, which passed the Iowa House. However, the state Senate removed the language to stop tax dollars from going to abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, and then passed the bill in a 27-23 vote, the Associated Press reports.
According to these recent incidents, the people of Iowa are largely against Planned Parenthood infiltrating their state. After the abortion business tried once again to influence their children, parents became rightly upset and are fighting against the new sex education.
