Virginia High School Opens Planned Parenthood Club

Will be "LGBTQ inclusive"

Abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood has moved beyond pushing their death agenda on Girl Scouts and college students, and have now begun phase 1 of their incursion into high schools. 

According to LifeSiteNews, Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School for Government and International Studies in Virginia, a public high school, has allowed students to form the “Planned Parenthood Generation Action” club, whose stated purpose is to evangelize the organization's cause. 

"The purpose of this club is to provide education, outreach, and advocacy opportunities at Maggie Walker to support the goals of Planned Parenthood," says the club's constitution and bylaws. "It is meant to let students learn more about the issues that affect their lives, create a network with other students who support Planned Parenthood, and engage in the political process to win elections and pass pro reproductive freedom legislation."

Employing a regular round table, the new club comes with three vice presidents — one for education, one for advocacy and the third for outreach – and faculty monitor Janet Spencer, an English teacher at the school. Seniors Kiera Goddu, Amanda Mier, and Naomi Vickers advocated the club's founding

The school has also gotten in on the action of promoting the club as well, posting on their Facebook page: "Whether you are interested in health, education, or getting community service hours this election season this club is for you."

From the school student news website:

Goddu, Mier, and Vickers are more than enthused to bring a new experience to the student body of Maggie Walker. Goddu explained that Generation Action chapters operate by advocating for reproductive rights, keeping Planned Parenthood clinics open, offering a wide range of publicly available education services, and lobbying to remove targeted restrictions such as those imposed on abortion providers. Maggie Walker’s Generation Action club plans to meet the goals of its founders and of the Planned Parenthood organization through three primary branches.

Senior Goddu has worked with Planned Parenthood in the past and rejects all abstinence-only sex education, which she said was useless at her middle-school.

"They said that the only definition of abstinence was that it was abstaining from sex until marriage between a man and a woman," she said. "And I was like — abstinence can be applied to many things — like abstaining from doing basically anything!”

Mier promised the new club will also be "LGBTQ inclusive" beyond "what’s between a man and a woman."

Vickers just threw around the word choice a lot when referring to abortion as she promised to make that one of the club's cornerstones.

"A choice in any type of good society should be … the choice to abort if she wants to or [the woman] should have the choice to have the child if she wants to and feel like the government places enough value on the life of all people that they will support her and her child in every way possible," she stated. "That is a choice, and that’s what I want people to know."
