Video: Calif. Teachers Won't Notify Parents If Student Leaves For Abortion


A leaked video provided by the conservative group, Our Watch, purports to show an ACLU attorney and Planned Parenthood representatives coaching teachers on sexual education.

This “education” went far beyond teaching kids safe sex. The video shows ALCU staff attorney Ruth Dawson explaining how California teachers can help students obtain abortions without parental consent or knowledge. “Regardless of how old the student is, they can walk into a doctor’s office and consent to these services without parental consent,” she stated. “Those services are pregnancy and prenatal care, contraception and emergency contraception, abortion — and for these there is no parental notification.”

The sex-ed curriculum portrayed describes oral and anal sex for students in middle school, in addition to multiple sexual fetishes.

In the video, Our Watch goes into how after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on the relationship between the California Board of Education, Planned Parenthood, and the ACLU, all ran through the for-profit company, Cardea. Cardea was reportedly provided a grant by the state in order to create the sex-ed curriculum for every school district to adhere to. 

Cardea was working with multiple LGBT activist groups, in addition to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, to shape sexual education throughout the state. The video even alleges that Cardea went as far as teaching educators to tell parents they were not allowed to opt out of anything LGBT or sex-ed related. This was all accomplished through the  bill AB-329, which is explained by The Daily Signal

Planned Parenthood was mentioned multiple times as a “community partner” in the creation of the curriculum and PowerPoints obtained by Our Watch's FOIA request.

Our Watch uncovered that Cardea was allegedly training teachers on how to subvert parental rights, allowing students of any age to be able to obtain an abortion without parental knowledge.  

As reported by One America News,

[Ruth] Dawson [ACLU staff attorney] then explained how teachers and administrators are not allowed to mark a child absent or out for a medical procedure, and should, instead, record students with an “excused absence” if they leave school campus for an abortion or other sexual health-related procedures. These laws apply to children from kindergarten through 12th grade, who are all required to participate in the mandatory sexual education classes.
