Social change Planned-Parenthood-style: Marketing sex ed for babies

CNS News broke the story last week about Planned Parenthood Federation of America's latest push of its perverted agenda, openly calling for sex education for children from birth. "Real Life. Real Talk.® is a bold, nationwide, social change effort," says Planned Parenthood's web site realiferealtalk.org.

Just as the abortionist feels uneasy when he first begins ripping preborn children apart but becomes more hardened as he kills more and more, Planned Parenthood's sex ed program seeks to desensitize parents to the irreparable harm inappropriate sex talk causes children, by encouraging them to talk in front of and to the children about sex often, and without waiting for the children to ask questions.

"As examples from social movements show, getting people to talk openly and publicly about an issue - particularly a sensitive or stigmatized issue - is a critical step in making social change happen," the web site says.

This effort to change societal thinking is in keeping with Planned Parenthood's long-term efforts to duplicate the European model where they succeeded in getting the community to believe that sex between unmarried young people was not only inevitable but perfectly normal - and even necessary for healthy maturation!

Just to cite one example, Planned Parenthood's Oregon Team Report looks at what the organization considers a successful effort in France, Germany and the Netherlands. According to this report, "Success doesn't really rest on programs and services alone. It is the societal thinking-the norms-that make the Dutch, German and French successes possible. It is the openness and the acceptance that young people will have intimate sexual relationships without being married and that these relationships are natural and contribute to maturing into a sexually healthy adult."

According to an article published in Social Marketing Quarterly about early trials of the program, "Real Life. Real Talk.® combined community organizing and collaboration, education, community events, and promotion in an intervention that addressed the entire marketing mix. Through building local grassroots partnerships and providing a host of coordinated local educational events, including repeated offerings of Sex Ed for Parents™, Real Life. Real Talk.® sought to reduce the public's level of shame, intolerance, and avoidance and, subsequently, to increase openness, acceptance, and engagement about issues of sexual health... Real Life. Real Talk.® is an example of community-level social marketing that evolved for continual improvement."

The program is hosted in communities by local schools, libraries, churches and temples.

Links to "Tools for Talking" from the Real Life. Real Talk® web site are shocking, even by Planned Parenthood standards. One of the handouts goes into detail encouraging and describing perverse sex acts, including masturbation and perverse intercourse. It encourages parents to ask their children the question: "How do you know when you like a person enough to have sex?"

Among the other alarming advice in the handouts:

* A child's...sexual feelings...develop from the moment of birth - even before a child can speak.

* Talk about sexual issues with other adults in your children's presence. This can give your children the message that it's an "okay" subject to discuss in your household.

* Treat sex like any other topic

* Give short, simple, but specific and complete answers. Don't leave out important information. Information will not hurt your child or promote sexual behavior.

* Use proper terms for body parts and sexual activities.

* Tell your child stories about your own experiences.

* Take your child to the drugstore and point out the pads, tampons, condoms, etc. Take your teen to a clinic for contraception and exams, or let your teen know where to go for help to prepare to be sexually active.

* Arm your child with knowledge, skills, supplies, and self-confidence. These are the best protectors against risky behavior.

Planned Parenthood intends to promote this program nationwide.
