Obama’s infamous sex/teen pregnancy/sex before marriage program is being terminated by President Trump which social conservatives have advocated for, according to Life Site News — keeping his promise to the American parents who openly questioned the previous president’s administration decision in 2010 to allocate $100 million annually to promote sex before wedlock, Trump scores a win for Christian values.
Obama entered the White House with an open hostility to morality and Christian principles which support the value of abstinence education. In fact, Obama administration officials had led efforts to eliminate all funding for abstinence education from the previous president’s final 2017 budget.
The message was crystal clear to parents in the nation’s heartland. The anti-moral administration would dramatically increase “safe sex” messaging and resources targeted at adolescents between 10- and 19-years-old. Simultaneously, Obama and his wife Michelle, advocated lowering the age of access to tax-funded condoms, IUDs. And other contraception devices.
What was equally fundamentally appalling is how the former first lady and her liberal posse of wrong-headed activists worked tirelessly to increase public school, elementary and junior high programs which taught condom use and pushed kids to have LARCs (Long Acting Reversible Contraception) implants, abortifacient IUDs, and controversial chemical release implants, reported Life Site News.
Of course, the liberals in congress along with their mainstream media cohorts tried to minimize the public outcry against these efforts to strip parents of their right to not expose their young children to the lock-step pro-sexual activism promoted by the anti-Christian cartel. They assured that the recipient programs of the federal funding would be closely monitored to prove that their funded efforts were reducing teen programs.
Predictably, that was not the case. They only reduction that occurred was a diminishing of parental rights and an increase in staffing up local jobs for anti-abortion alarmists who headed up these programs. The evidence is in. According to the recent U.S. Office of Adolescent Health Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs report the Obama initiated program was failing.
Not only was the program an absolute waste of public taxpayer dollars, some of the organizations that were funded still had their hands out demanding more money, while not even submitting any reports. For many that did submit reports, the program officials admitted there was actually no difference in teen pregnancy rates and for others the pregnancy rates increased.
Like so many other liberal programs that were launched by the Obama administration, the only goal that they pursued was to undermine the fabric and structure of American society. The so-called evidence-based reporting was only followed by 40 percent of the program grantees. Even more appalling was the fact that. “Of those grantees continuing past programs, only four of more than 75 reported effective results, and those results were short-lived. Of the grantees trying “new” ideas, only eight of 27 showed the slightest effectiveness,” reported Life Site News.
Predictably the bastions of abortion zealotry were quick to the trigger to attack the Trump administration for ending the unproductive and ineffective program. Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, railed against the president by saying to Healthline, “This is yet another anti-women policy that kills women.”
Democrats in the senate chimed in by stating in a letter to HHS Secretary Tom Price, that the budget cut to the program was “short-sighted” while not ever mentioning how the program had failed in its stated efforts.
American Christian Civil Rights Movement Executive Director Judi Lake called President Trump’s move to end the ineffective Obama era program a move toward protecting children and adolescents’ rights.
Forcing and pressuring parents and children as young as ten to deal with LARCs (Long Acting Reversible Contraception) implants, abortifacient IUDs, and controversial chemical release implants is bottom line wrong. Parents, not the government should be able to determine as well as protect as well as educate their children concerning teen pregnancy prevention.
