(Breitbart) School officials in the Spokane, Washington school district have halted a vote on a Planned Parenthood-designed middle school sex education curriculum that includes teaching children about LGBTQ sexuality and gender ideology.
The curriculum, titled Get Real, teaches children about LGBTQ issues and terminology, and meets the state of Washington’s new sex education requirements. The program was developed by Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts (PPLM) and published by ETR.
Get Real is a Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) program that assumes young people will be sexually active.
In Grade 6, the Get Real curriculum says it introduces students to the “key Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills” they will supposedly need to be able to discuss sexual relationships and how to avoid pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
According to the program’s table of contents, in Grade 7, students also discuss sexual identity and “examine the myths and facts about sexual orientation.” They also learn how to use a condom and review the use of hormonal contraception, including emergency contraception after sexual intercourse.
In Grade 8, one of the Get Real activities is a presentation by someone who is living with HIV, and students are asked to write a thank-you letter to the speaker.
In a press release in 2014, Planned Parenthood announced that Get Real “helps kids wait until they are older to have sex.”
“We are extremely proud the research shows our Get Real curriculum works,” said Jen Slonaker, vice president of education and training at PPLM. “Among students who received Get Real, 16% fewer boys and 15% fewer girls had sex compared to their peers who did not take Get Real.”
While Planned Parenthood touts the program has a focus on abstinence from sex and parental involvement, the abortion giant’s many other endeavors have been inconsistent with those stated aims….
