Planned Parenthood Now Defining "Good Parenting" For Preschoolers

Summer isn't gone, but a new school year is looming---and kids and parents are getting ready.

Planned Parenthood has already begun. And they're in the news again. This time because their website is giving "guidelines" that instruct parents to teach their children, beginning with preschoolers, that "your genitals don't make you a boy or a girl."

Franklin Graham is upset. Very upset. Hopefully, so will every other parent and grandparent.

Franklin posted on Facebook this week, "Planned Parenthood's true colors are showing. They're in the news because their website gives 'guidelines' that instruct parents to teach their children, even preschoolers, that 'genitals don't make you a boy or a girl.' They want to introduce the concept of transgender identity to a younger and younger audience---pushing the LGBTQ agenda."

He's right.

Planned Parenthood's web site is instructing parents how to introduce your children to this insanity at the earliest possible age, because they say, "Putting daughters in pink princess rooms and boys in blue sports rooms before they are old enough to choose for themselves can send the message that they have to like certain things because of their gender."

Following the link above see #2 "How Do I Talk With My Preschooler About Their Body," and #3 "How Do I Talk To My Preschooler About Identity?"

From their site:

Who has what? A note about gender.
It’s common for preschoolers to have questions about genitals and how bodies look different for boys and girls. (It’s even common for preschoolers to show each other what parts they have when left alone. That’s totally normal, but you may want to have a conversation about healthy boundaries.)
While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.
You can say that most girls have vulvas and most boys have penises/testicles. You may want to emphasize that it doesn’t matter too much what parts someone has — that doesn’t tell you much about them. But you can make that decision based on your values and how you plan to talk with your kid about gender as they grow up.

There's much more of this "parental guidance" on the site, and unfortunately, millions of parents may be influenced by this attempt to indoctrinate even preschoolers using the uninformed or misled parents of the children.

This is an expansion of Planned Parenthood's influence in the public school classroom which cannot be overstated.

Planned Parenthood is so pervasive in the classroom that the nation's largest organization for pro-life millennials---Students for Life of America---launched an education initiative last summer focused on middle school age students whose public schools Planned Parenthood to access the kids through "comprehensive" sex education programs that is nothing more than indoctrination of little kids barely going through puberty.

Kristan Hawkins, president of SFLA, said, "Years ago this program wasn't necessary but, sadly, today it is."

She said, "Planned Parenthood and their allies are relentless in their pursuit to talk to students in all grade levels because they are recruiting long term clients. But we are pushing back."

She explained that they are now talking to the same kids Planned Parenthood is, except SFLA is trying to keep the kids "from becoming clients of the largest abortion vendor in the country."

Cross Walk published an article yesterday written by a pastor with young children. It's titled, "5 Things I've Learned From Talking About Sex With My Kids." It could be helpful.

Ultimately parents (and grandparents) are responsible for the children---not the school, not the church, although it can and should be a great support for parents, and certainly not the government.

Scripture has much to say about the family's responsibility to shape the life of the children.

There is no greater example of this than Moses speaking to God's people just prior to entering the Promised Land: (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).

"Hear O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, when rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on your doorposts of your house and on your gates."

And remember, "No weapon formed against you [or your children] shall prosper..."
