This is how we break their backs: How one woman’s testimony got a sexual foreplay curriculum for middle schools tabled

“Safer sex curriculum” is a very inaccurate term for the salacious instructional fare promoted and taught by Planned Parenthood. A simple reading of the instructional materials shows that these programs are all about sexually stimulating even very young students—teaching them, in embarrassing graphic detail, and in mixed gender groups, the fun of sexual foreplay and sexual intercourse while attempting to persuade them to use condoms.

One woman is standing up to fight Making Proud Choices!—one of the most graphic sexual foreplay curricula—and making a huge difference by doing so. Mary McLellan is fighting the implementation of this program in Charleston, South Carolina, middle schools and across the state. She coined the astutely descriptive term “sexual foreplay curriculum” after examining the content.

Making Proud Choices! successfully passed through the Charleston County School District’s Health Advisory Committee (HAC), then moved on to the CCSD Education Committee, comprised of four school board members.

“I was the only person in the room that opposed Making Proud Choices!” Mary reported. “Everyone else present were either supporters or CCSD personnel. Representation included the New Morning Foundation, Tell Them SC, ACLU, SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy (exclusive trainers for Making Proud Choices!), Florence Crittendon, and MUSC Empower, the program seeking expedited approval so that they could get a federal grant to push safe sex onto our children.”

Mary brought the best evidence possible with her: the curriculum itself.

In her words, “I basically provided a reading lesson for the board members.”

McLellan instructed the education committee members: “Turn to page 86 and you will find a lesson on Condom Use Skills with a list of teacher supplies to include lubricated condoms, lubricants, and penis model(s). If this lesson is not depicting a sex act, then what is?”

She continued reading as the board members followed along.

The result was immediate. “One board member moved to table the curriculum until the Education Committee had time to review the content,” McLellan stated. “The motion passed 4-0.”

She continued,

Making Proud Choices! resides in the CCSD Education Committee until it is brought forth again. This could be any day and without notice if Planned Parenthood has the influence in the district that I suspect.

Not bragging, but it only took one person (me) to stand up and read facts to get this nasty program tabled. Unlike the Health Advisory Committee, all four of the school board members were open to hearing facts and seeing the evidence for themselves and considering what is really best for the children of Charleston County.

You really should have been there. I hope you will be, next time.

Mary is right. If you are in the Charleston County School District, you should have been there. According to McLellan, “Making Proud Choices! is already in Anderson 3, Barnwell/Blackville-Hilda, Dorchester 2, Richland County 1, and Spartanburg 3.”

McLellan warns parents that, unless they stand up and say NO to this curriculum, their children will be learning how to:

• make condoms fun and pleasurable,
• use condoms as a method of foreplay,
• act sexy/sensual when putting condoms on,
• hide [a] condom on your body and ask your partner to find it,
• tease each other sexually while putting on a condom,
• have fun putting one on your partner, while pretending you are different people or in different situations,
• feel more relaxed and really enjoy yourself, and
• use condoms to make erections last longer!

Mary was able to get the curriculum tabled in the schools expected to approve the program just by speaking up. If hundreds, or even dozens—or maybe even just a handful of parents—will speak up, the curriculum can be permanently removed, and the children of the district will be one step further removed from Planned Parenthood’s evil influence.

This is how we break the back of Planned Parenthood and its allies who have evil designs on our children. Don’t rely on someone else to speak up. If you want the children to be protected from this filth, you must speak up now!

Board chair Michael Miller, and board members Tom Ducker, Rev. Chris Collins, and Craig Ascue unanimously voted to table this program. Let them know how you feel about Making Proud Choices! getting another hearing.
