Shhh……Don’t Tell The Parents We Are Really Using Planned Parenthood……

We all know Planned Parenthood is in Tempe Union High School’s Sex Ed curriculum, despite the following email exchange with a citizen:


Date: Fri, 4 Sep 2015 13:31:10 -0700
Subject: Re: sex ed in TUHSD

Mr. ________,

The District’s sex education program does not use any curricula developed by Planned Parenthood. Furthermore, parents continue to have the choice of whether or not their children receive sex education. Tempe Union will not teach sex education to students without parent written permission. If parents choose to have their children participate in sex education, parents will have the option of choosing either the regular program or its alternative, Choosing the Best. 
That being the case, there is no need for the District to take any of the steps outlined in your letter. 
Thank you,

Good morning, Dr. Baca…

This memo is a follow up on the letter of 7-30-15 from _______________ re: the sex education program in your school district and its source of
teaching information.

Have you made progress in changing from the use of Planned Parenthood, or one
of its subsidiaries, as your source for the curriculum?

A copy of the letter is below for your reference.

Re: Planned Parenthood Sex Education Program

Dear Dr. Baca,

Considering the latest unfavorable news regarding the grotesque and inhumane use of fetal body parts by Planned Parenthood, the undersigned respectfully request the school district discontinues the use of Planned Parenthood as the source of its sex education program.

It would be appreciated if the matter would be addressed immediately with the proper steps taken to complete the procedure within fourteen days from receipt of this request.

The above email chain would have been well and good, and it mirrors TUHSD Board Member DeeAnne McClenahan’s similar story to this same individual when questioned at an event this summer.
The problem is the District IS using a Planned Parenthood FLASH teachers manual.  In fact, there was a link posted to this manual on the TUHSD website, but within a few days after the above email exchange with Dr. Baca and the curriculum director it was removed:

Just for fun, I tried this URL only to find the page is gone. The URL was taken from a Planned
Parenthood page as of 12/3/14. That’s when I printed my copy of the curriculum manual.__

This is another example of the cancer that is Planned Parenthood.  It changes people.  The lies snowball.  This behavior is top-down, with Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, as the expert snowball thrower.
(An upcoming post displays examples of Planned Parenthood’s connections to TUHSD’s curriculum.)
