A Sarasota County School District is taking heat from parents after a sexually graphic Planned Parenthood video was shown to teens at one of the schools. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions nationwide and has been exposed for covering up child sexual abuse in several states.

According to MySuncoast.Com, sex-ed instructor from  SPARCC, the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center broke protocol by not having the video, called ‘When Someone Doesn’t Want to Have Sex: What is Consent? vetted first at Pine View High School. The incident was allegedly reported to school administration by two teachers and at least one parent, the paper noted.

District spokeswoman Tracey Beeker, told the paper that SPARCC “did not follow the correct process for guest speakers” by allowing the counselor into the school before their scheduled time and by “showing materials that had not been approved.”

A report by WFLA states that, “The video [seen below and different from the one shown at MySuncoast.com] was produced by Planned Parenthood and included footage of several couples, including men making out with other men and women kissing other women.”

In response, Board member, Bridget Ziegler Tweeted, “What do parental rights matter in K-12 ed? This video was shown to students during an AP Literature class. No parents were notified in advance. It was only after a student complained that parents & our board became aware. Warning: Mature Content.”

School board member Eric Robinson found the video uncomfortable, according to the interview he conducted with WFLA,“Its just unfortunate that they decided to use Planned Parenthood to get their message out,” said Robinson. “If parents had been notified about this, this could’ve been stopped off at the pass.”

An apology published by SPARCC on the school board’s website reads in part:

On November 7, an unsuitable video was shown to Pine View students that was not approved by the school district. After observing the video in class, a teacher notified school administration of their concern about the contents of the video, and an investigation was conducted. Previously, SPARCC had used an approved video to teach this coursework. After an initial investigation, it was discovered that a SPARCC counselor took it upon herself to show this video, knowing it had not been previously vetted, and broke curriculum protocol. In addition, school staff at Pine View did not follow the correct process for guest speakers by admitting this counselor in the school in advance of their appointment and showing materials that had not been approved.

In a statement from SPARCC, President and CEO, Jessica Hays wrote, “We sincerely apologize for the incident last Wednesday at Pine View. The staff member did not follow established protocol regarding the programming presented, and the organization has acted to ensure that this does not happen again. SPARCC has had a positive relationship with Sarasota County Schools that has spanned more than 15 years and we take the trust placed in our organization very seriously. Preventing domestic/dating violence and sexual assault is central to our mission and SPARCC aims to be a trusted resource for our community.”

“We appreciate SPARCC’s shared concerns regarding this incident,” noted Dr. Stephen Covert, principal at Pine View School. “I am thankful for their swift review of the events and apology to our students, staff, school leaders and families. Until now, SPARCC has been a trusted resource for our students and school community, however, I am disappointed that the action of one resulted in an unacceptable situation for our students. I want to assure our school community that we will follow district guidelines and will take extra precautions in the future to ensure only pre-approved materials are used in the classroom.”

Until a complete review is conducted, the school district has suspended SPARCC from presenting programming in Sarasota County schools. The district has also reinforced guest speaker protocols with school leaders and staff to ensure anyone presenting to students has a pre-approved set of curricula that is reviewed and accepted by the school principal.

 

Because a little old lady held a graphic abortion image…read to find out what happened

Posted in Students for Life with tags , , , , , on April 4, 2016 by saynsumthn

The debate over whether abortion victim images are effective has been going on inside the pro-life movement for years. But today, more and more proof is emerging that shows the images are having a lasting impact on society. This was never more evident than when a pro-life activist discovered why he received an invitation to speak on a college campus.

Blythe campus prolife ministry

Don Blythe refers to himself as a Christian Abolitionist, and founded At the Well Ministries. He has been involved in pro-life ministry work for over 32 years and has rescued thousands of preborn babies from the grip of death. He regularly witnesses outside abortion clinics. In addition, his Project Truth outreach has handed out tens of thousands of brochures in front of high schools. And, that campus outreach has taken his team to over a hundred colleges: from Stanford to UC Berkeley, Santa Barbara City College to Shasta College, UNLV to Oregon State to Laney College Oakland.

It was such an outreach that led Blythe to discover that something seemingly insignificant that took place years before would create a wide open door for him to testify about the truth of abortion at a Northern California campus. If the name Blythe sounds familiar it should. He is the uncle of a special young woman whose short life on this earth changed many during her service in pro-life movement. Blythe’s niece, Kortney was introduced to the reality of abortion as a young girl and dedicated her life to seeing it abolished. But, in 2011, after years speaking the truth of abortion in various ministries, Kortney was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident.

Don Blythe on Campus

Kortney would often join her uncle during his campus outreach programs. It was during one such event that a College professor approached Kortney and asked her which one of them wanted to come and take on his sociology class. Courtney told the professor that either she or her “Uncle Don” would go and according to Blythe, she gave him her uncle’s phone number.

“Hey uncle Don here is a speaking engagement for you,” Blythe recalled her telling him.

Don Blythe Project Truth abortion prolife

Blythe told Saynsumthn that he vividly remembered the precise way the professor extended the invitation.

    “He said how about next Wednesday you come to the class. Don you come to the class and raise your flag and see if anyone will salute. You have an hour and a half.”

So, the Christian Abolitionist said he went home and put together a powerpoint presentation. He showed up at the class prepared to speak and show the students a video which contained images of abortion in graphic detail.

    “I tell the students ahead of time, during my presentation I won’t show you disturbing pictures of injustice. I won’t spring it on you – but at some point in my presentation I will have a 7 minute video to show. If you choose to leave or close your eyes you can do that.

    I have never seen one person close their eyes but two or three have walked out.”

According to Blythe, after he shows the video of the abortion victims, he has documented that the class generally changes their view on abortion from 80% pro-choice to about 30%. In addition, he has had students who watched the video now call abortion murder!

Blythe said that although he has asked several professors to allow him to speak to their class, no one ever responded before until this the professor stepped forward. So, when the professor invited Blythe back for the second semester, it peaked Blythe’s curiosity, prompting him to ask:

    “I appreciate you having me in the class – but what promoted you to allow me to come into your classroom?”

The professor’s response surprised even Blythe and has convinced him all the more that the use of abortion victim imagery will leave a long lasting positive impression on many people. Below is what Blythe recalled the professor telling him was his reason for the invitation:

    “Let me tell you, I think probably the reason is that when I was in elementary school, I was getting ready to go into my mom’s car after school and I saw this old woman holding a graphic picture of an abortion.

    “That had a very real influence on me, without giving away my views it had an influence to allow you to come in to give your presentation.”

So, because a little old lady stood on street corner holding a graphic image to a bunch of elementary schools students at a school in Ohio, Blythe has been enabled to share the truth with many students today. And, that was not the end of the story. According to Blythe, the professor said that after he speaks there are students that keep their babies.

Blythe recalled his words:

    “Let me tell you something Don, just between you and me, I want you to know there are a number of students who have come up and talked to me over the years after the class. Your presentation has influenced them to not have an abortion. One young lady even skipped her class to sit in on your class because she heard you were going to be speaking.”

Blythe ended his account of this story by paying honor to the old lady who once held a graphic abortion image on a sidewalk, noting that it opened up doors to share life and save babies years later. But Blythe also observed that the woman probably never knew the profound impact that she had on that once young elementary school boy who lived in Ohio at the time. And, such is the work every pro-life activist.

Students supporting abortion hold offensive signs mocking Jesus and praising Satan

Posted in Abortion and Satanism, AHA, Satanists with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2015 by saynsumthn

This school semester, groups of Abolitionist Societies participating in their Project Front Lines campaign are confronting High Schools students to educate them on the reality of abortion.

During their campaign in 2014, parents contacted the news media saying that they were upset that the group, Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) was holding the graphic abortion signs outside Norman High School, in Norman, Ok.

Some parents went to the school and held up sheets to block the abortion images and then accused members of AHA of being, “pretty Westboro Baptist like.”

2014 parents angry AHA abortion

This year, it appears the students were ready for AHA’s campaign.

A group of pictures posted on Facebook today by T Russell Hunter, who took part in this year’s campaign, showed pro-abortion students holding some shocking signs.

I contacted Hunter and asked his permission to post them on my blog.

The image above shows a home school abortion opponent speaking with an abortion supporter holding a sign that reads: SATAN!

As a person who has been in the pro-life movement for many years, I am often rarely shocked.

But, seeing the signs these students held outside Norman High School were beyond shocking – they were vile and offensive, especially this one mocking Jesus:

Hunter and I dialogued online about the sickening messages these students wrote on their signs and tragically, Hunter correctly summarized it as, “the state of our culture put on display.”

11156411_10153125786921832_7726626356646606422_n

According to a post on the Abolish Human Abortion Facebook Page:

    These students came out to tell us that we were wrong to stand up for pre-born human beings outside of their school. We didn’t hold any signs depicting victims of abortion today (we just held pictures of ultrasounds, prenatal photographs, etc, and passed out pamphlets), but they told us that our pictures of pre-born human beings were pornographic and not welcome at their school where innocent children might see them.

Sadly, AHA Supporters who were at the school said that some of the teachers actually stood with these students.

11167661_10153125786576832_4196264613843640432_n

If the parents in 2014 were shocked enough to speak out about the message that AHA displayed, I hope they speak out about this as well, but, somehow I doubt they will.

Tragically this is the result of a culture that allows the exaltation of sexual promiscuity and the ultimate devaluing of life.

I am beyond disgusted !

“Hate and war” how intolerant abortion advocates described pro-life crosses

Posted in Pro-choice People, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2015 by saynsumthn

Apparently today’s pro-choicers are a little soft and very easily offended!

Case in point, when a pro-life cross display representing children killed from legal abortion went up on a college campus, pro-choicers had a tizzy.

A video uploaded to YouTube shows the abortion supporters protesting the display at the Central Library Mall of the University of Texas-Arlington.

The 2,900 pro-life crosses were put up by the group, Pro-Life Mavericks.

Prolife Maverick Signs

Now, I have been in this movement a very long time and I have witnessed pro-choicers get upset about a lot of things before….but…crosses?

Apparently, as abortion advocate Olivia Frost explains – the crosses tell abortion supporters “we can go to hell.”

Olivia Frost

Then there was pro-choicer Cody Needham and he “just wants to have a discussion.

Really?

Cody Needham abortion disciussion

If you’re going to hate,” Cody said, “at least tell us why you hate. That way we can at least have this general forum without just yelling at each other. That’s what starts wars- that’s what starts fights.”

Hate? Pro-life crosses are hate?

Get a spine man!!!

So – what was the group’s solution?

Get the pro-life display taken down- removed- censored from their campus.

And when campus admin wouldn’t do it – someone did:

Prolife Maverick crosses stolen

Thankfully, the group later found them hidden behind some walls on the other side of the street.

Please fill me in, just who is hating here again?

Son of PP Director: Pro-choice activists would rather destroy pro-life property than abide by constitution

Posted in free speech, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

A video recorded by University of Oregon Young Americans for Liberty President Thomas Tullis and Vice President Brandon Clements shows pro-choice advocates verbally and physically assaulting pro-life protesters.

Thomas Tullis 9_2458613631776024782_n

Tullis explains on his Facebook page, “On Tuesday, I got this video of our campus reaction to free speech. I dont agree with this campus protester/preacher and I don’t think it is cool to hold a sign with a baby fetus on it in a protest effort, but I am even more upset that the student body is incapable of engaging in rational dialogue- instead, students thought it was necessary to call the police and to steal the mans property and try to destroy his sign. Brandon and I are trying to get an opinion piece in the Emerald published that outlines our concerns with the campus community’s childish reaction.”

Most of the news reports so far are centered around the campuses free speech policy and the way campus police attempted to censor the pro-life protesters.

See here , here , here.

Police corrected the officer and rightfully allowed protesters to stay.

Sadly, arguments made by abortion advocates show a real lack of education.

Examples:

Pro-choicer #1

prochoice dick lady

“You’re a man – you have no say what happens in my body…you have nothing to say about it because you have a dick.”

______________________________________

Pro-choicer #2:

Capture

This is obscene, this is not part of your first amendment rights.”

Really? Don’t they teach the Constitution at this University?

____________________________________________

Pro-choicer #3:

prochoice vagina

“Can you get an abortion- do you have a vagina?”

______________________________________________________

Pro-choicer #4

“Do you have a vagina?”

Prochoice vagina 2

_____________________________________________________

These arguments are really dumb. It would be like saying you have no right to speak out on slavery unless you are black, on Rape or Human Trafficking unless you are a woman, and animals rights unless you are an animal.

Not to mention that they each fail to chastise the pro-choice “vagina-less” men that support their position including the one that destroys the pro-life signs (below).

They also seem rather ignorant to the fact that it was male justices on the Supreme Court which legalized abortion to begin with.

Of course, because of their ignorance, instead of intelligently arguing the issue- they resorted to violence.

First- by stepping on the sign:

Prochoice prolife oregon

Prochoice prolife oregon 2

Prochoice prolife oregon 3

___________________________________

Then- by attacking it:

prochioce destroys prolife sign oregon

prochioce destroys prolife sign oregon 2

prochioce destroys prolife sign oregon 3

prochioce destroys prolife sign oregon 4

______________________________________________

But, I was not the only one that caught this, even pro-choice advocates agreed that the conduct of these pro-choice students was appalling.

A comment on Tullis’ FB page suggests the campus police officer should have addressed the yelling pro-choicers first:

Jim Beard to Tullis

Son of Planned Parenthood Director:

Another comment left by Sam Dotters-Katz reads, “This is shameful by the students. My mother was the medical director at planned parenthood and I am as pro choice as they come, but that has nothing to do with this mans free speech rights. Or generation can be so weak, they would rather steal and destroy this guys property than abide by the constitution and afford him his obvious free speech rights, because they don’t like what he is saying or those images. I think what he is advocating for is abhorrent, and holding up pictures of fetuses is disgusting and distorts the issue, but it is his right. Where the hell are student leaders and why aren’t they educating people, so sad.

Planned Parenthood son

Thomas Tullis praised the conduct of the anti-abortion demonstrator, “it’s truly a sad day when the campus preacher can remain composed and try to discuss things intelligently and the university educated students are only interested in a shouting match. I stood by and watched as this man calmly tried to encourage rational discussion and debate like asking students when they think life starts, etc. Instead the students thought it would be a better idea to harass him with profanity and insults. I wish I got more of it on video. One girl literally went up and yelled “Fuck you, fuck your god, fuck your sign” and that wasnt even the worst of it.

Another girl told him that she just came out of a first amendment law class and that his sign is obscene and not protected by the constitution.”

It is good to know that in the face of violence and censorship there are still some who will speak out in favor of free speech.

Group claiming they represented Planned Parenthood pelted pro-lifers with condoms! Shouting, “We love abortion!”

Posted in Planned Parenthood violence, pro-choice violence, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2014 by saynsumthn

The pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust claims that while protesting at Boise State University, they were pelted with condoms by a person claiming to represent a Planned Parenthood.

Survivors visits college campuses displaying abortion victim photography at various universities.

During their visit to Boise Secular the pro-lifers said it seemed like students at the university were just “flipping out!”

Boise 1

According to the pro-lifers a group claiming they represented Planned Parenthood, pelted the team with condoms! Shouting, “We love abortion!”

Later the group said they noticed a young man kneeling in front of one of the pro-life signs.

Sure enough!! He was vandalizing the sign!

According to Survivors, the vandal drew a mustache on the face of the aborted baby.

When one of the Survivors asked him, “Why would you do that to the picture of that little girl who was killed by abortion?

He just smirked and said, “Well it’s a boy now! I love abortion.”
Boise 2

According to the groups’ founder, Jeff White, “I tell you; if you are not afraid for the future of our country you would be after just spending a couple of days with the Survivors Campus Outreach Team, experiencing what they experience. Being hit with rocks or condoms, being spit on or mocked all comes with the privilege of being on campus and speaking out on the issue of their day. They represent the truth of abortion and go as ambassadors of Christ and their work is not in vain!”
Boise 3

Kristina, a member of the pro-life group summed it all up: “They like to call us crazy but at the end of the day…they are the ones who look crazy and it works to our advantage!”

Liberal Logic: Be Patriotic by Using a Condom

Posted in Advocates for Youth, Condom with tags , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2013 by saynsumthn

Advocates for Youth, a pro-abortion, pro-Planned Parenthood organization and they are looking for students to set up SAFESITES on campus to pass out condoms to students and you can “Do this for your country.” This is the group’s 5th year.

GreatAmericanCondomCampaign

According to Advocates for Youth, “The Great American Condom Campaign is a youth-led grassroots movement to reduce unintended pregnancies and the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections by normalizing condom use on college and university campuses. Students from across the country apply to become individual condom distribution points–AKA SafeSites– and upon selection receive a box of 500 Trojan condoms to distribute to their peers. SafeSites are also tasked with educating their peers about safer sex and advocating on campus and within their community for the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people.”

GACC AFY

Two current staff members for Advocates for Youth have affiliation with Planned Parenthood :

Laura Davis, AFY’s Director, Adolescent Sexual Health Services is the former manager of a mall-based family planning clinic for teens and has worked as a consultant with International Planned Parenthood Federation and the United States Agency for International Development in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Robyn Swirling, AFY’s Online Organizing & Outreach Coordinator, founded a chapter of VOX Voices for Planned Parenthood.

They work with Planned Parenthood in a variety of ways….such as (here)
