Planned Parenthood Report Oversexualizes Ten-Year-Olds, Undermines Parental Authority
Written By David E. Smith   |   02.12.10

International Planned Parenthood Foundation’s recently released report, “Stand and Deliver: Sex, Health and Young People in the 21st Century,” advocates policies that jeopardize the well-being of children’s health, the importance of parents and the moral values of our society, says Family Research Council.

The report promotes contraceptive sex education for children as young as ten years old. Most disturbingly, the report advocates that children as young as ten be “empowered” to “develop satisfying and pleasurable sexual lives.” The report demands that children 10 and older be given a “comprehensive sexuality education” by governments, aid organizations and other groups, and that young people should be seen as “sexual beings.”

This report represents an ideological point of view that over sexualizes children and attempts to remove parents from being the primary conveyor of what their child learns and from whom. Illinois citizens will be shocked and outraged by what this report recommends. Parents should find out what is being taught in their child’s school and understand their rights under the law.

Moreover, polls show parents overwhelmingly believe that sex education should reflect the values taught at home. Contrary to parental desires, Planned Parenthood seeks to undermine parental and religious influence by advocating for a ‘human right’ to unlimited contraception and mandating so-called comprehensive sex education for children as young as ten.
