A southern California school board is set to vote Monday on a proposal that would bring a Planned Parenthood center to a high school campus. Click here to join Todd’s private Facebook page for conservatives.
If approved, the Norwalk-LaMirada Unified School District’s proposal will allow the clinic to open on John Glenn High School’s campus in Norwalk, per Fox News.
While the item does not allow the Planned Parenthood to perform abortions or gender transitioning services, it does permit the clinic to “make referrals to other health centers operated by Provider for services not offered at the Schools.”
Additionally, under California law, the Planned Parenthood will be able to provide contraceptive’s and STD treatment along with referrals for abortions and gender transitioning services without parental consent or notification.
“Provider and District acknowledge that under California law minors have the right to consent to reproductive health services without parental consent or notification,” the proposal reads. “Provider will encourage Students to involve their families in decision making regarding the Services, as appropriate.”
Conservatives are outraged that school board members would put forth an item of this nature.
“The problem is that sex education classes in public schools are ‘how-to’ not ‘don’t do’ classes,” said national radio host Todd Starnes. “Californians should be enraged that their tax dollars are being used to turn classrooms into abortion mills.”
“Families and taxpayers should be horrified that the Norwalk-La Mirada USD is considering a partnership with Planned Parenthood,” Nicole Neily, the president and founder of Parents Defending Education, told Fox.
Further, citing the breach of parental rights threatened by the proposal, Neily continued, “Other Planned Parenthood clinics do provide gender-affirming hormone therapy, so there is a very real possibility students will be referred off-campus to receive this treatment – again, with zero parental notification,”
Fox also reported that partnerships between public schools and Planned Parenthood have already cost Los Angeles County taxpayers $10 million.
