Law evicts Planned Parenthood from schools

July 11, 2007 09:00 AM

“We are ecstatic,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. “A new law just signed by Missouri’s governor will keep Planned Parenthood away from the children in that state, and that is a great victory for Missouri parents.”

Newly enacted legislation in Missouri says: “No school district or charter school, or its personnel or agents, shall provide abortion services, or permit a person or entity to offer, sponsor, or furnish in any manner any course materials or instruction relating to human sexuality or sexually transmitted diseases to its students if such person or entity is a provider of abortion services.”

“The elected officials in Missouri understood the conflict of interest that exists when Planned Parenthood is allowed to teach or provide material for sex education classes,” said Sedlak. “To have an entity that profits from the sale of birth control and abortion teaching our children about sex is ludicrous.

“We encourage every state in the nation to follow Missouri’s example and implement similar laws,” said Sedlak. “We look forward to the day when Planned Parenthood is not allowed access to the children in any school district in the nation.”

American Life League covers the Missouri law plus a number of other developments concerning Planned Parenthood and its sex education programs in today’s edition of the Wednesday STOPP Report.
