Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is directly involved. According to the report, “schools do not have to pay for condoms, they are provided by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.”
Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that performs approximately 40% of all abortions in the United States.
The Vermont Right to Life Committee has expressed concern that the new program has the “potential to increase abortion rates in Vermont,” reports the local CBS News station. This is not without foundation, as the following will show.
Vermont is the first US state to require the distribution of free condoms to all public colleges and high schools. Lawmakers have said the program will help prevent and reduce rates of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.
The law requires school district officials and school nurses to determine “the best manner in which to make condoms available to students. At a minimum, condoms should be placed in locations that are safe and readily accessible to students, including the school nurse’s office.”
The Vermont Agency of Education has issued guidelines that exclude parental involvement, according to CBS News.
“No secondary student will be refused access to condoms through this program. Minors in Vermont have the legal right to access a full range of reproductive and sexual health services without parental permission. Minors are provided access to condoms in a variety of settings and may purchase them without parental consent.”
Former abortion workers warn that the industry is using these programs to build up trust while encouraging young people to engage in risky sexual behavior. Then, when the young women get pregnant, they turn to the abortion group for help and are sold abortions.
Monica Cline, who worked with Planned Parenthood in Texas for ten years, has repeatedly stated that the abortion chain’s sex education materials are designed to “teach children about sexuality in order for them to become sexually active,” and that their programs are a “marketing tool to lead to abortion.”
Recently, parents in Tacoma, Washington were outraged after their middle school students received a flyer from Planned Parenthood promoting sex to 11-year-olds and telling them they could get an abortion without a parent’s knowledge.
On its website, Planned Parenthood boasts of being the single largest provider of sex education in the United States, reaching approximately 1.5 million people each year.
Among its worst teaching points, Planned Parenthood tells students that promiscuity is ok. “There is nothing bad or unhealthy about having a large number of sexual partners.” Planned Parenthood’s booklet for young people living with HIV, entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” tells young people that it is their “human right” not to tell their sexual partner that they have HIV.
And it’s not just Planned Parenthood. Carol Everett, who owned and operated a group of independent abortion clinics for many years before she became pro-life, said she did the same.
“I sold abortions,” Everett said during a speech in 2019. “How do you do that? It’s called sex education.”
A new Vermont law just coming into effect requires all public high schools to provide condoms to any student who requests them, even as young as 12 – even if their parents object. Governor Phil Scott, a pro-abortion Republican, signed the law late last year.
