This is scary…people getting into fights over abstinence vs. condom use in teaching childern sex ed…
Here is why i have to rant!
GLENVIEW, Ill., Nov. 3 /U.S. Newswire/ – In the midst of a national Abstinence Education Evaluation Conference being sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services this week, abstinence educators are calling for an investigation of the questionable content and ethical concerns with comprehensive sex education programs being supported with government money. Rather than allowing abstinence educators to follow the conference agenda, an organization called Housing Works sabotaged this morning’s session with a 10-minute demonstration attacking abstinence education and Claude Allen, the deputy secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, to the point that security needed to be called to restore order. In addition, it has been revealed that individuals representing the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) and other nationally known abstinence education opponents, are present at the meeting.
SIECUS and the CDC have a record of recommending curricula with extremely graphic content such as the use of grocery items like grape jelly being used as lubricants (Becoming a Responsible Teen), condom relay races, condom practice and fantasizing during classroom time, a homework assignment to go shopping for condoms, and how-to instructions for oral sex (Becoming a Responsible Teen, Be Proud! Be Responsible!, Get Real About AIDS). Focus on Kids, a curriculum for 9-15-year-olds, assigns teens to create a list of ways to be close to a person without having intercourse, including, “body massage, bathing together, masturbation, sensuous feeding, fantasizing, watching erotic movies, reading erotic books and magazines.”
“The content of these programs and exposing children as young as age nine to studies on sexual practices calls into question who authorized and recommended these programs in the first place,” stated Libby Gray Macke, director of Project Reality. “Once again, SIECUS and other comprehensive sex ed advocates prefer to attack successful programs rather than have the content of their own recommended programs exposed. We hope that the GAO will investigate these programs to ensure that children are not exposed to these dangerous programs.”

Grape jelly??Condoms??? 9 year olds???Public Education??? My tax money??? :mad: UGH!!!
