School district lies, says teachers are not Planned Parenthood employees

Even though school authorities in Salem, Oregon, promised parents Planned Parenthood staff would not be teaching in the Salem-Keizer schools, they are. And they have been doing so since at least 2010. The school district recently signed a contract expanding Planned Parenthood’s presence from two high schools to throughout the district.

Even though Planned Parenthood hired and trained the teachers to teach in its Teen Outreach Program (TOP), the school district is denying that the teachers are Planned Parenthood employees.

Even though the school district provided a standard-looking health curriculum to appease a concerned parent who objected to the sex-belching organization’s involvement in the schools, a different curriculum that contains material credited to Planned Parenthood has surfaced. It also refers students to Planned Parenthood for “services.”

The TOP program is one of many insidious programs being promoted across the nation via huge federal government grants that super-fund Planned Parenthood in its bid to stealthily override parents and gain access to children both on and off campus, as it adds things like after-school programs and grant money to schools in order to bolster its acceptance.

Disguised as teen pregnancy prevention initiatives, these programs spell disaster for our nation’s children. The huge government grants and the impact they are already beginning to have on communities are driving an impending moral crisis the likes of which our spiraling nation has yet to face.

We recently reported that the TOP program is recruiting children in Portland, Oregon, schools, and that Planned Parenthood is paying children cash incentives to participate.

Parents in Oregon and throughout the nation are organizing resistance to Planned Parenthood’s onslaught into schools via church and other networks. Christian News Northwest reports that “about 60 people attended an Aug. 28 meeting at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Salem that was called by Doug Muravez, a parishioner at the church and parent of two students at North Salem High School.” As a result of that meeting, parents have set out to organize resistance across a broad range of denominations in the local communities.
