Obama’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative giving millions to abortion giant Planned Parenthood

When President Obama said that he did not want his daughters punished with a pregnancy- he wasn’t kidding.

Perhaps that was the motivation behind his creation of the The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) a government agency and division of the Health and Human Services Department.

Capture

According to Siecus, the OAH is part of President Obama’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative (TPPI), first funded in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 at $110 million, in public and private grants. The Initiative funds programs that “reduce teen pregnancy”.

TPPI is administered by the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), in cooperation with the Administration for Children and Families and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In 2012, OAH or TPPI was funded at $105 million.

OAH Initiatives

Planned Parenthood’s research arm, the Guttmacher Institute describes OAH this way, “The program emerged during final negotiations over the health care reform legislation enacted in March 2010. As partisans argued over provisions to prohibit insurance coverage of abortion when government funds are involved,Sen.BobCasey(D-PA)and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops pressed for the fund’s inclusion as part of the final legislation, characterizing it as a way to make it easier for vulnerable women to decide to carry their pregnancies to term.”

Guttmacher’s continues, they write, “Melinda Delahoyde, president of Care Net, a network of crisis pregnancy centers, in an article published by the Christian News Service. “Our hope is that the White House will be true to its word and use this money to reduce abortion by giving it to those organizations that truly help women choose life.”The Family Research Council’s criticism of the program was more direct: “How can [President Obama] find common ground on abortion if the Fund never mentions it?” Other activists, particularly in the antiabortion blogosphere, opposed the creation of the fund as a “social spending” program. Financial rewards, they say, incentivize the nation’s teens to have children.”

On the OAH website they claim to, “support and evaluate evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention (TPP) programs and implement the Pregnancy Assistance Fund.”

In addition the OAH coordinates HHS efforts related to adolescent health promotion and disease prevention; and communicates adolescent health information to health professionals and groups, those who serve youth, parents, grantees, and the general public. OAH is the convener and catalyst for the development of a national adolescent health agenda.

What is interesting are the goals that the Center for Disease Protection (CDC) lays out for OAH:

According to the CDC, “The purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching African American and Latino/Hispanic youth aged 15–19.

CDC
To achieve these goals for FY 2011–2015, nine state- and community-based organizations, including two Title X agencies, and five national organizations were funded through the cooperative agreement, Teenage Pregnancy Prevention: Integrating Services, Programs, and Strategies Through Communitywide Initiatives. These awards were made through two competitive funding opportunity announcements (FOA): one through a joint FOA from OAH and CDC, and one from a joint Office of Population Affairs and CDC FOA.

OAH seeks grantees to work in areas of high teenaged pregnancy and recently solicited applications to give away $890,000 in grant monies.

In addition, grantees of the OAH include….abortion giant Planned Parenthood, something the national office bragged about in 2010.

Although, it seems obvious that this initiative to assist women in pregnancy or prevent teenaged pregnancies is aligning with abortion promoters, we will surely discover more connections as this new government agency continues.

So, I will end with this tid-bit: A 2011 OAH Training Initiative included former Planned Parenthood and Siecus members. Hmmmm.

Chicago Billboards show pregnant teen boys – tax funded site lead teens to Planned Parenthood

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) –

Chicago Teen Pregnancy Billboards 2013

A new billboard aimed at preventing teen pregnancies is causing a bit of controversy.

The Chicago Department of Public Health is using billboards showing pregnant teen boys in their 2013 campaign to prevent teenage pregnancies.

BeyouBeHapyChicago

According to a public health department spokesperson, they want to impress upon the young public that teen pregnancy is not just the girl’s responsibility.

The ad campaign is being rolled out this week in the city and suburbs, on transit buses, trains and billboards. They are placed close to local high schools where the teen pregnancy rate has recently increased.

Good Day Chicago took to the streets to see if these spreads, intended to spark conversation, will get the message across. The reaction was mostly positive on Michigan Avenue Wednesday morning.

As expected Be You Be Happy website leads teens right to Planned Parenthood:

Safe Sex from Church? Why the Bible should replace Planned Parenthood’s sex ed curriculum in schools

Posted in Church, HPV, Planned Parenthood, Sex Ed with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2010 by saynsumthn

While Planned Parenthood and local Iowa and Massachusetts School boards face scrutiny for it’s pornographic sex-ed classes a new report from the CDC shows that most teens remain virgins because of their religious and moral beliefs.

Parents in Iowa are outraged after Planned Parenthood personnel used stuffed animals to simulate sex acts in a sex education class at a Shenandoah high school. Students as young as eighth graders were in attendance at the class.
A mother of one of the eighth grade boys reported to Fox News that the stuffed animals were used to teach sexual positions to the young teens. In addition, the teens were taught how to “perform female exams” and were taught how to use a condom via an anatomically correct model of the male sex organ. She also told Fox Radio News that she believed some of the pictures used were pornographic, and that the class included both male and female students.

In addition a New England school district has approved a measure that will provide free condoms to elementary school students and direct teachers not to comply with parental wishes to the contrary. The policy, unanimously approved by the Provincetown School Committee does not include an age limit — meaning children of any age ask for — and receive — free condoms. The committee also directed school leaders not to honor requests from any parent who might object to their child receiving condoms. In other words mommy and daddy — you don’t have a right to prevent your 7-year-old from getting a contraceptive device.

WHY?????????

Because Planned Parenthood the nation’s largest and most profitable abortion provider has convinced the media and elites that their sex-ed is needed because the kids are all having sex at all ages with everyone.

But the truth has been exposed in a recent CDC Report which reveals that most teens are virgins despite Planned Parenthood’s claims. (analysis from STOPP)

In 2006-2008, 58% of never married teen girls and 57% of never married teen boys between the ages of 15-19 had never had sexual intercourse, according to the CDC report released this month. The numbers did not change substantially since a similar report was released in 2002.

And what was the reason kids were remaining virgins? Was it because Planned Parenthood taught them how to use a condom? NO ! The reason most often cited for abstaining was that it is “against religion or morals,” which was also the most common reason in 2002. So, instead of Planned Parenthood in the schools, how about we encourage kids to go to church, Sunday School, read their Bibles and have morals? That is, if we REALLY want to stop teen pregnancies !

Entitled Teenagers in the United States: Sexual Activity, Contraceptive Use, and Child Bearing, National Survey of Family Growth, (NSFG) the report debunks Planned Parenthood’s constant mantra that most teens will not abstain. In the words of Planned Parenthood Federation of America vice president of medical affairs, Vanessa Cullins from a YouTube video directed toward teens: “…admit that you are a sexually active individual like most of us, and that you are going to have sex and that you need to take precautions in order to stay healthy.”

The report also builds a solid case against Planned Parenthood’s promotion of sex education that is devoid of morality or religious influence – except for the secular humanism espoused by PP.

The report also revealed that “the vast majority of never married teenagers had not had intercourse in the month before the survey (76% of females and 79% of males, unchanged from 2002.)”

The number of “sexually experienced” teens peaked in 1988 at 51%. The steady decline in sexually active teens coincides with the popularity and availability of abstinence education in the 1990’s and into the 2000’s.

Similarly, the report shows that the U.S. teen birthrate is 31% lower than the peak rate in 1991. There was a slight increase in the teen birth rate from 2005 to 2007. The CDC report says that the increase in the teen birth rate from 2005 to 2007 was so modest that it was not statistically significant, yet Planned Parenthood seized on that modest increase to demand that abstinence programs that do not promote contraception be defunded, and that Planned Parenthood’s anything-goes “comprehensive” sex ed funding be increased. You can view the full National Survey of Family Growth here. It should be cited widely in your work to defund Planned Parenthood and in keeping PP away from our children.

And another Reason for defuning Planned Parenthood is their link to eugenics, racism, and Black Genocide. For information on this – watch the film: Maafa21

Demographics or targeted Black Genocide?

According to Planned Parenthood’s Research Arm – The Guttmacher Institute’s Report from Jan. 2010
U.S. Teenage Pregnancies, Births and Abortions:National and State Trends and Trends by Race and Ethnicity

Teenage abortion rates were highest in New York (41 per 1,000), New Jersey, Nevada,Delaware and Connecticut.
• By contrast, teenagers in South Dakota (6 per 1,000), Utah, Kentucky, Nebraska and North
Dakota all had abortion rates of eight or fewer per 1,000 women aged 15–19.
More than half of teenage pregnancies ended in abortion in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
• In five states, 15% or fewer teenage pregnancies ended in abortion: Kentucky, Arkansas, South Dakota, Oklahoma and Utah.


What was the reason given for these high rates of abortions in New York:


New York has had high rates of abortion for a long time,” noted Elizabeth Nash, of Guttmacher. “The demographic makeup in New York probably plays a role. There are significant populations of African-Americans and Latinos. Both groups tend to have higher rates of pregnancy and abortion.”

Perhaps the abortion rate among this group has something to due with the fact that Planned Parenthood targets Black and Hispanic Communities to make sure they have easy access to abortion.

And why would they do such a noble thing: EUGENICS?

Don’t believe me?
