California MassResistance helping parents stop extremely graphic sex-ed program being taught by Planned Parenthood in junior high schools
Up against deceitful school officials who flout the law and push extreme agendas on young students.
Parents confronting the School Board!
April 30, 2019
California MassResistance is helping parents get Planned Parenthood (and its VERY graphic sex-ed) thrown out of the junior high schools in the Anaheim Union High School District, despite hostility from politicians and a campaign of deception and misinformation by school administrators.
Our previous success inspires parents!
This began with a previous success in that district. As we recently reported, California MassResistance put a stop to a planned week-long program of transgender indoctrination in the Anaheim Elementary School District. Its 23 schools (with students aged from 4 to 12) are in the Anaheim Union High School District.
Since that report went public, the CA MassResistance team has been getting lots of support – and inquiries from parents across California about how to stop this agenda in their children’s local schools.
Shanda, one of our CA MassResistance leaders, started receiving calls and texts from several parents with children at a nearby junior high school in that same Anaheim Union High School District. The parents told Shanda that Planned Parenthood representatives were in the school teaching the “comprehensive sex-ed” classes. They said their children were coming home with lurid descriptions of graphic homosexual sex, pro-abortion counseling, and other explicit and distressing “instructions.” The school administration had apparently brought Planned Parenthood into every junior high school in the district.
It’s easy for the district to use the schools to push these radical agendas on young children. The majority of parents in this school district are immigrants, and most don’t speak English as their first language. Many work long hours to make ends meet. The schools were taking advantage of this by pushing the most explicit sexuality programs they could, and making things confusing and difficult for parents. The parents complained to Shanda that, among other things, they were not given proper instructions how to opt-out their children if they wished, or descriptions of the sex-ed courses that they could understand. When they tried to talk to the school administrators, they were given the run-around.
According to Shanda, schools are blatantly not following the California state law, AB329, passed in 2015, which “authorizes” school districts to provide “comprehensive sex-ed” in public schools. Administrators have been telling parents that schools are “required” to include very graphic, explicit, and controversial material. The school districts are making it difficult for them to opt-out or view the coursework. Although “HIV education” is required, and the law is unquestionably written as pro-LGBT and anti-Christian, school districts have much more latitude than they tell parents.
On March 5, 2019, several dozen outraged parents came to a meeting at that junior high school, called by the principal. At that meeting, the Planned Parenthood content the parents complained about was so repulsive that the principal immediately decided to remove Planned Parenthood from that school entirely.
Shanda was also at that meeting. She spoke with several of the parents who had come to object to the curriculum. "We all know that Planned Parenthood is in every other school in the district doing the same thing," she said, "and other parents and children are being victimized by it. Something must be done."
There was a meeting of the Anaheim Union High School Board that same evening. Shanda encouraged the parents to attend that meeting and demand that the School Board remove Planned Parenthood from all the schools in the district. The parents agreed!
Confronting the Anaheim School Board
That evening about 20 parents came to the Anaheim Union School Board meeting along with Shanda. Six of them testified – very strongly – during the public comments section. The Board clearly wasn't ready for that!
One mother who has a daughter in the 7th grade (in photo above, next in line to speak) told the Board:
My daughter came to me and asked “What is oral sex?” She said she learned it from a guest speaker from Planned Parenthood. The speaker explained what oral sex is – mouth to penis and mouth to vagina. The students were told how to use a condom. And that they could have an operation without parental consent. The guest speakers brought weird things to the class and said kids could put them on their private parts and kiss them there. And if they don’t like the flavors, there are other flavors.
The teacher told us this is based on California’s education law. But this is not the way to prevent STDs or STIs.
The school has sent a very casual flyer regarding the sex education to parents at the beginning of the semester. But the flyer included only brief information without any details. So parents don’t know what’s being taught.
Immediately following her, another mother (in photo above, second in line to speak) didn't mince words with this chilling testimony:
I am the mother of a 7th grader. My son took health science last quarter and the guest speaker from Planned Parenthood taught inappropriate things to kids who are still too little to understand. My son learned from guest speaker:
- Oral sex is mouth to penis
- How to do oral sex
- Anal sex is penis to anal
- Masturbation; touch a certain place of your body that will give you pleasure
- When you do masturbation, use the lotion for better lubrication
- You move your penis back and forth when you have sex, at the end white liquid will come out from your penis, it is called semen and it is ejaculation.
- Flavors of condoms
What kind of parent teaches their own kids how to do oral sex and masturbation?
That mother went on to what say what she heard herself when she visited the class and sat in during the lesson:
They cover the LGBTQ [issues] on Lesson 5. I don't want my kids to be brainwashed and learn about those things. I heard the Lesson 5 guest speaker in the class say, “There is biological identity but it’s something from your heart and that’s how they feel. Do what makes you happy, you don’t have to be girly or boyish.
The Board members at first seemed unbelieving, even hostile. One said out loud that the second mother’s testimony is “Not true.” Another Board member asked the Superintendent to explain this but got no answer - and didn't press for one. They clearly weren’t interested in dealing with the parents’ distress and outrage, and seemed relieved when the meeting was finally over.
Back at the School Board the following month!
So at the following board meeting, on April 11, the parents came back – and brought even more outraged parents. The Board reacted by cutting each speaker's time from 5 minutes to just 2 minutes. That made the parents even angrier.
The parents described in detail how the Board and the schools purposefully keep them confused, frustrated, and in the dark.
Another mother was upset that the course’s claim that anal intercourse with a condom is “safe” (like normal sex) is medically inaccurate - and should not be taught.
One father berated the Board about the lack of transparency in the school district. He had asked multiple times for copies of the sex-ed curriculum that the school district had the teachers use.
Many parents struggle to make time to meet with their children’s teachers. This parent went out of his way three separate times, and only after the third visit did the school provide a copy of the lesson. Yet even then, the printing was so small that he could not read it! Most of the information was shoved onto other parents in different schools—500 pages!—with little time for the parents to review the material and object to its implementation.
A fight to the finish coming up
Through all this, the Board seemed … bored. It certainly reveals the perverse and bizarre mentality that elected school officials seem to have these days.
Most people have no idea what's really being taught to children in public schools today. And the schools like it that way.
But even more frightening: Too many parents don't realize how little their school board members even care that young schoolchildren are being exposed to the most graphic, destructive sexual and homosexual material in their schools. The politicians are much more interested in appeasing the special interests. We've seen that for decades.
But the Anaheim Union High School District Board hasn’t seen what Shanda, a room full of furious parents, and California MassResistance are capable of. More to come on this!
More successes from the Elementary School battle
In the months since Shanda and California MassResistance won the transgender indoctrination battle in the Anaheim Elementary School district that success has led directly to other notable victories:
- The Orange County (OC) LGBT Center’s coordinator, Laura Kanter, is no longer allowed on any Anaheim Elementary School District campuses. Leadership in Anaheim Elementary has indicated that they will not allow her to promote OC LGBT Events on the district’s campuses, either.
- As a result of our victory, parents in the neighboring Santa Ana Unified School District rose up. Thus, the OC LGBT Center is no longer holding “Color Me Boot Camp” events at any of those schools. This LGBT Event featured Drag Queens, transgender “role-models,” and different types of pro-gay role-playing and support groups for homosexuality – in middle schools. This was a regular occurrence for the past five years on Saturdays between March and May. Here’s an example of the LGBT promotional events which were taking place in public schools in Orange County.
- The fallout from this went even further! The Certification program at nearby Cal State Fullerton for Welcoming Schools program (another LGBT Agenda push tailored for elementary schools, from the Human Rights Campaign) is no longer happening. With no more certification programs available, the school districts can’t implement the program in their districts.
One success can cause a chain reaction. That’s why unrelenting pro-family engagement is so important!
