Va. Family Life Education SB967 - #2598 - ALERT: Planned Parenthood Attacks Abstinence Education

Legislation cleverly designed by Planned Parenthood to attack abstinence centered education programs yesterday passed the Senate Education and Health committee and will be voted on early next week in the state Senate. Please contact your Senator and urge them to vote NO on SB 967.  The annual assault by the abortion industry on abstinence education comes to us this year in a bill introduced by Senator Ralph Northam (D-6, Norfolk). For years Planned Parenthood has sought to advance legislation that would require sex education curriculum to be, in their words, “medically accurate.” Of course, it’s difficult to argue against such a concept because all of us want our children to be given accurate information in school (if we allow the state to educate them about sex). Legislators that vote against the bill could be criticized by abortion advocates as being against “medically accurate” information, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Planned Parenthood and their allies at the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) have made it their national agenda to stop abstinence education and they consistently assail abstinence programs as being medically inaccurate. Unfortunately, even the medical community differs on what is accurate and Senator Northam’s bill would force the Department of Education and local schools to make the decision about what is correct (of course, I’m sure Planned Parenthood and NARAL will joyfully help them make these decisions).  Link to contact your Senator on this bill below... Senator Creigh Deeds 804-698-7525.
ACTION: Please contact your Senator today and urge them to vote NO on SB 967!
