PARENTS:
WHAT YOU MUST KNOW TO PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN

Do you know ...

What your child’s school is teaching? Offensive materials that conflict with your values and
beliefs? Condom demonstrations? Same-sex unions as marriage?

That your child can …
  • Leave school without your knowledge?
  • Get birth control confidentially?
  • Be referred for abortion without consent?
  • Have a judge approve her abortion without your knowledge or consent?

About Planned Parenthood’s teen website? This website states that lesbian, gay, bisexual,
and straight sexual orientations “are perfectly normal.” Kids are invited “behind the fig leaf” to
view explicit drawings of genitalia, an erection, and a “how-to” use a condom animated video.
Planned Parenthood also promotes It’s Perfectly Normal, a book for children as young as nine
with explicit cartoon-like drawings, e.g., a young boy masturbating, a couple engaged in sex, and
nude people of all ages, races, and sizes.

About the sex education-abortion connection?
