Planned Parenthood moves ahead with sex ed for 5-year-olds in New Zealand, supports China’s one child rules

The New Zealand Family Planning Association, part of the International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF] is moving ahead with educating younger and younger students on contraception, sterilization and abortion.

The NZFPA wants five-year-olds to be educated on what a condom is while lifting away many of the traditional boundaries on sexual education.

“A review earlier this year of sex education resources in New Zealand by groups such as Family Planning found that they are seriously flawed with both sins of commission and sins of omission, and that critical life and death information is distorted or ignored,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“Many schools and Boards of Trustees read this report and were horrified by what was exposed,” he added.

Dr Gill Greer, formerly the Executive Director of the New Zealand Family Planning Association and the previous Director General of the IPPF, in 2009 in an interview with Xinhua News Agency, praised China’s one child family policies saying that the policy helped China’s economy and alleviated problems of overpopulation.

Critics point to this stance as a double standard to Planned Parenthood’s motto of a woman’s right to choose. China has had several incidents of forced abortions, sterilizations and even imprisonment for those who violate this policy.

“We would encourage all parents to read our report “R18: Sexuality Education in New Zealand – A Critical Review” by US psychiatrist Dr Miriam Grossman, and judge for themselves whether groups like Family Planning and Planned Parenthood should be let anywhere near our children,” McCoskrie.

  1. UK Liberal Democrats call for sex education at age 7 to make ‘informed choices’ - The Global Dispatch says:

    […]   “The Liberal Democrats are committed to ensuring that children have access to age-appropriate sex and relationship education regardless of where they go to school,” the Aug. 25 article quotes.   The was already proposed by the Labour Party. We proposed this a year ago,” said a Labour source to the Guardian. “The Lib Dems have been dragging their feet.”   Domestic abuse activists hope that the new curriculum would have an effect on students’ relationships later in life.      Seema Malhotra, Labour’s shadow minister for preventing violence against women and girls, said, “Violence in young relationships is a huge issue, as is preventing violence in future relationships. Only through ideas like compulsory sex and relationship education can we tackle the root causes of domestic abuse and give young people the tools and support they need to make informed decisions about their own lives.”   English Conservative have spoken out against the young sex ed classes.    The overall plan is to begin at age seven with sex education, in citizenship and financial literacy. It should be a “curriculum for life”, Laws explained.   The movement is already underway in America, with Chicago rolling out a kindergartner sex ed program – more HERE. Planned Parenthood implemented a program in New Zealand beginning at age 5 – more HERE […]
