Vermont public schools, in partnership with the largest abortion chain in America, are required to provide free condoms to students as young as 12 – even if their parents object.
WCAX 3 reported in November, 2021 of a Vermont law going into effect requires all public middle and high schools to provide condoms to any student who asks for one. Gov. Phil Scott, a pro-abortion Republican, signed the bill law.
The abortion giant Planned Parenthood is directly involved. According to the report, “Schools don’t have to pay for the condoms, they are provided by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.” Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that does about 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S.
The Vermont Right to Life Committee expressed concerns that the new program has the “potential to increase abortion rates in Vermont,” CBN News reports.
Vermont is the first state to mandate free condom distribution in all public middle and high schools. Lawmakers who support the legislation said the program will help prevent and reduce unintended pregnancy rates and sexually transmitted diseases.
The law charges school district leaders and school nurses with determining “the best manner in which to make condoms available to students. At a minimum, condoms shall be placed in locations that are safe and readily accessible to students, including the school nurse’s office.”
However, the Vermont Agency of Education published guidelines for the program that exclude parental consent.
“No secondary student will be refused access to condoms through this program,” according to the guidelines. “Minors in Vermont have a legal right to access a full range of reproductive and sexual health services without parent permission. Minors are provided access to condoms in variety of settings and may purchase them without parental consent.”
The abortion industry is heavily involved in sex education programs. Former abortion workers warn that the industry uses these programs to build up trust while encouraging young people to engage in risky sexual behavior. Then, when young women become pregnant, they turn to the abortion group for help and are sold abortions.
Monica Cline, a former sex education instructor who worked with Planned Parenthood in Texas for ten years, repeatedly has said the abortion chain’s sex education materials are designed “to teach children about sexuality in order for them to become sexually active,” and its programs are a “marketing tool to lead to abortion.”
Earlier this summer, parents in Tacoma, Washington were outraged after their middle school students received a Planned Parenthood flyer that promoted sex to 11-year-olds and told them that 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 U.S., reaching about 1.5 million people each year.
Also, Planned Parenthood tells children that promiscuity is ok. “There’s nothing bad or unhealthy about having a big number of sexual partners,” it tells students on its Tumbler page. Planned Parenthood’s booklet for HIV-positive youth, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” tells young people that it is their “human right” to not tell their sexual partner that they have HIV.
And it’s not just Planned Parenthood. Carol Everett, who owned and ran a group of independent abortion clinics for many years before she became pro-life, said she did the same thing.
“I sold abortions,” Everett said during a 2019 speech. “How do you do that? It’s called sex education.”
