Planned Parenthood sex ed accused of “leading children to abortion”
Monica Cline, a former Planned Parenthood sex education volunteer says a program that Iowa recently banned from receiving taxpayer funding pushed materials that encouraged students to become sexually active, "leading them to abortion.” She was recently interviewed by the Catholic news outlet EWTN for a “Pro-Life Weekly” segment.
The interview came in response to a recent decision by the Iowa Supreme Court to uphold the right of the state to ban Planned Parenthood from participating in two federally-funded grant programs.
Cline expressed support for the decision, saying that Planned Parenthood’s educational materials are aimed at “pushing sexuality and sexualizing children.”
“I went ahead and looked into the programs they were implementing in Iowa,” said Cline. “I was looking at the research findings and all of them were shown that they had very little positive results or no effects or even at times adverse effects, due to these types of interventions on the children.”
According to Cline, the Planned Parenthood educational materials “did not promote abstinence at all,” but rather were meant “to teach children about sexuality in order for them to become sexually active.”
