Planned Parenthood has posted a job opening for a Sexual Health Education Intern in Little Rock.
According to the job listing, the intern’s responsibilities will include assisting “with the development and implementation of sexual health education programs for students” in Little Rock and the surrounding area and helping out with sex-education programs in schools and at other organizations.
Presumably this means Planned Parenthood wants to teach sex-education in public schools in or around Little Rock, if they are not already doing so.
Under Arkansas law, comprehensive sex-education is not mandated statewide, and schools are encouraged to teach abstinence to students. However, individual public schools have a certain amount of leeway when it comes to partnering with individuals and organizations to teach classes and conduct programs on campus.
Last spring the Arkansas Legislature narrowly defeated a measure that would have opened our public schools to Planned Parenthood-type sex-education.
Simply put, we don’t need Planned Parenthood teaching sex-education in our public schools.
In the Pacific Northwest, the Obama Administration gave Planned Parenthood millions of dollars to teach a teen pregnancy prevention curriculum to students. After going through the program, students actually were more likely to become pregnant or cause a pregnancy — not less.
We have analyzed data that demonstrates the kinds of sex-education programs Planned Parenthood promotes aren’t good for students.
Our public schools need to think twice before letting Planned Parenthood through their doors.
