This week he became aware that the textbook, "It's Perfectly Normal," is available to his middle school daughter.
He is angry.
And he should be.
The textbook has been around for about 20 years, but each school year parents often become aware of it for the first time.
Public schools use it---or have it available.
Planned Parenthood promotes and places it.
Most school libraries have it.
Planned Parenthood and the book publisher claim it is "age appropriate" for children as young as 10.
It isn't. It isn't appropriate for children of any age, because it isn't educational.
It is an enticement for young children who are not sexually active to become so. For children who are sexually active, it is a enticement to sexual addition.
Parents and grandparents, beware.
Here's what you should know.
Russ is looking into how he and other concerned parents can remove the book from the Vancouver school or at least keep it from young children.
They are checking out their options this week.
Planned Parenthood is a strong advocate of the book. Here is a part of what Cecile Richards, President of PP says on the Planned Parenthood website:
“How can a book be 15 years old and be as fresh as a newborn baby? The answer is simple. When it is brilliant! In 1994, Robie Harris and Michael Emberley gave the world’s families an awesome gift — It’s Perfectly Normal. Never before or since have we had such a clear and concise guide for family discussions about sex and sexuality. It’s Perfectly Normal is also kind, informative, positive, witty, wise, charming, and, most important of all, helpful. What our kids want most as they learn about themselves and their sexuality is to be normal. With Robie and Michael on our home team, it is easy to assure our kids that it is just what each of them is — perfectly normal.”
- Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
Note her line, "What our kids want most as they learn about themselves and their sexuality is to be normal."
In a moment I will show you how they define "normal."
This textbook is not kind, witty, informative, positive, wise or charming.
I believe it is destructive to children.
Children are to be taught about sexuality, but this is not the message or the method.
Parts of the pictures and text are so graphic that I am not going to put it on this website, however, I am giving you a couple of links. Please do not share this with your young child until you have viewed it yourself. And keep in mind this is available to 10 year-old children in public school.
The America Life League has developed two video reports for parents. Please take a few minutes and watch both of the links below.
This is a report titled, "Sex Book for Children". It is specifically about the book. It is 2 minutes, 44 seconds.
This report is titled, "Hooking Kids on Sex". It shows parents how this book is used by Planned Parenthood in a broader agenda to lead kids into sexual addiction. It shows how this "new normal" is established in public education. It is 6 minutes, 35 seconds.
Please take a moment to be informed.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Pro-Active. Be Blessed.
