Sex Ed Programs Create Market for Abortion, Former Abortion Clinic Owner Tells Arkansans

A former abortion clinic owner recently explained to Arkansans how abortionists use sex-education and similar programs to create a market for abortion.

According to the Harrison Daily Times, Carol Everett, who ran an abortion facility for many years before becoming pro-life, recently spoke at an event for the Informed Choices pregnancy resource center.

She told the crowd,

“I sold abortions . . . I spoke in the schools to the fifth and sixth graders. My goal was to get them pregnant. We offered low-dose birth control pills for $45 a month which we knew she would get pregnant on. Abortion is a method of birth control for many and there is more than a 50 percent repeat rate.”

She went on to discuss how profitable abortion is, and how abortionists use sex-education programs to encourage students to have sex, become pregnant, and seek abortions.

Recently we learned that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is looking for someone to help operate sex-education programs in and around central Arkansas.

Planned Parenthood’s announcement implies that the group either is currently operating sex-education programs in Arkansas schools or wants to operate these programs in the future.

Carol Everett’s story further illustrates why Arkansans simply should not let abortionists anywhere near our children.

Arkansas A.G. Continues Fighting for Human Life in Court

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office recently asked the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals to let the state enforce some pro-life laws the legislature passed earlier this year.

In June abortionists sued the state over three new pro-life laws:

  • Act 493 of 2019, prohibiting abortion after the eighteenth week of pregnancy, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.
  • Act 619 of 2019, prohibiting abortion of an unborn baby solely because the child has Down Syndrome.
  • Act 700 of 2019, requiring abortion doctors to be board certified or board eligible OB/GYNs.

These laws are designed to do things like ensure abortion doctors are properly certified in obstetrics and gynecology and protect babies from being aborted simply because they have Down Syndrome.

Arkansas abortionists are challenging laws that hold abortion doctors to reasonable standards and prohibit abortion after the eighteenth week of pregnancy.

Over the summer U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker blocked the laws, preventing the state from enforcing them. Now the A.G. is appealing to a higher court.

U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker has consistently ruled in favor of abortionists like Planned Parenthood, and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has a history of overturning her bad rulings.

With that in mind, there’s a good possibility the Eighth Circuit could unblock all or most of the provisions in these pro-life laws.

There’s also the possibility that these laws could be appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which would offer us an opportunity for a good, pro-life ruling that would help undermine Roe v. Wade and shape pro-life laws nationwide.

As I have said before, I don’t know of any attorney general in America who is doing more to fight for the right to life than Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. Her team has won some major pro-life victories in the past, and I believe we will see others in the future.
