The following comes from an Oct. 26 email by Camille Giglio, veteran Bay Area pro-lifer.
During the first week of October I was informed by a mother, that her daughter’s high school freshman class of students at Acalanes High would, between October 6-10, be subjected to a week-long presentation of sexual health services, events and activities, during their PE classes by Planned Parenthood.
The mother’s several attempts to obtain information about these classes either from the PE teacher who invited Planned Parenthood into the classes or the high school principal were met with obstruction, paternalistic behavior, and obstructionism.
The parents took their daughter out of the PE class for that period of time and instructed her in health matters at home basing their instruction on the state education health code requirements.. The mother said that she was able to instruct her daughter thoroughly in one class time frame. She wonders why Planned Parenthood felt it needed a week.
As a result of this the parents and a other parents will be appearing before the Acalanes High School governing board’s November 5 meeting to demand that this event be put on the next meeting’s agenda.
They will be demanding that all the high schools in the Acalanes district (Lafayette CA– about 15 miles east of Oakland) – Acalanes, Las Lomas, Campolindo and Miramonte) put a moratorium on any appearance of Planned Parenthood in the schools until this issue is settled. Since then several things have come to light.
- On October 16, one week following Planned Parenthood’s attendance at the school, the school principal, a Mrs. Silvestri, along with a member of Planned Parenthood Northern California, signed a Memorandum of Understanding – MOU – forming a partnership or contract between the two entities for Planned Parenthood to have access to the students throughout the year .
- The MOU states that the school is required to provide classroom space for Planned Parenthood to conduct any further “clinics” it so chooses and provide all equipment and utilities that Planned Parenthood feels is necessary for them to conduct business.
- There is even a reference to payments for services provided by Planned Parenthood.
Considerations #2 and #3 fly in the face of recent newspaper notices that the governing board recently sued the taxpaying citizens of the school district to wrestle more money out of the residents for so-called academic and scholastic needs.
An Opt-out form had, so the PE teacher claims, been sent to parents two weeks prior to the class. However, this was a general opt-out form such as those passed out at the beginning of school, carrying no details as to what Planned Parenthood would be discussing with students.
After several requests from the mother, the PE teacher admitted that, very likely, Planned Parenthood would be discussing the use of and procurement of condoms, making referrals to Planned Parenthood external offices, discussing alternate life styles and all pertinent minors reproductive rights issues.
Please attend the next board meeting or communicate with letters and phone calls to the governing board.
Phone: 925-280-3900, fax 925-935-5872 https://www.acalanes.k12.ca.us/page/17.
The board meeting will take place on November 5, 7:30 PM – 1212 Pleasant Hill Rd, Lafayette, Ca. Governing Board Conference room, Acalanes High School Campus.
Did Planned Parenthood teach students that the best way to avoid sexually transmitted Disease is for ABSTINENCE from sexual activity according to the Center for Disease Control ?
” Abstinence: The most reliable way to avoid infection is to not have sex (i.e., anal, vaginal or oral).”
Did PP give a copy of this FACT SHEET to students from the CDC that states there are approx. 20 MILLION NEW cases of STDs each year in the USA.
And that there are approx. 110 MILLION cases of STD’s treated each year in the USA (due to cases that have not been cured the previous years).
And that there are approx. 16 Billion dollars in direct medical costs each year in the USA due to STDs ?
Did PP have the students watch the videos with the latest scientific medical information on Human Development ? Including when unborn babies start to feel pain ?
(This is what PP tries to hide from pregnant women.)
Since the 1960’s, Catholic schools have been in trouble. Slowly but surely they have lost their precious Catholic identity, and today they promote immorality and heresy probably more than other schools. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen advised parents in the 1960’s NOT to send their children to Catholic colleges as the students would lose their faith. Christ instructed His disciples to proclaim and teach all nations. The TRUTH is what is supposed to be taught, but mainly falsehoods and half truths have been substituted for the truth. Because of this, home schooling has gained many followers, and the positive influence of our Catholic schools has waned, while ignorance of God and all that is good and true. has increased.
The aggression by Planned Parenthood, and its success, given the moral-less leadership of people like the principal, Mrs. Silvestri, means that public school should be a non-choice by Catholic parents. Instead, all Catholic children should vacate public schools.
Alternatively, all Catholic parents must: (1) opt-out their kids from any PP contact; and (2) raise Holy Hell against the school and school board. Yes, CA parents, you must now stand up and demand that PP contacts be ended and that compliant staff be terminated (or “re-educated” anyway).
Evil looks for a vacuum. And, most Catholic parents, at least in CA, no longer care much about abortion. Certainly, no one wants to raise a fuss about it, as that would be mean being unpopular and subject to criticism.
Of course, one must ask, where is the bishop here? Is he reaching out to the public school to challenge the MOU? Funny how dopey bishops feel authorized to speak on national issues like immigration, economic injustice, racism, sexism, elitism, “disrespect” against homosexual sexualist, and all that, but are SILENT regarding true evil in their backyard. Better to issue yet more incomprehensible papers on, well, anything, than stand up again and again and fight against fornication, contraception and abortion (and homosexual marriage).
Stop paying for these Catholic clergy. Stop, stop, stop putting your hard earned dollars into the coffers of these sycophants. Find a true Catholic charity, a faithful parish, and Traditional orders and give them your money. Demand the Christ be considered when educating children.
Parents must demand the state of California pass a law providing school vouchers for all students. The vouchers, ALL OF THE SAME DOLLAR VALUE, then the parents can use them to pay the public school or private school of their choice. Otherwise, vouchers given only for private schools would be much less dollar value. The argument is that this would reduce the money that the public schools need if there were fewer pupils. True, but if there were fewer pupils in the public schools they would not need as many teachers, supplies, etc.
I think MORE, not less, sex ed should be taught in our high schools. You can talk about abstinence all you want, but reality happens in the back seat of a car. Sex ed should start at home and be reinforced in the classroom. Planned Parenthood has a excellent curriculum that includes abstinence and reality. Good for Acalanes.
Planned Parenthood kills babies.
They do not allow people to view scientific ultrasounds of their baby prior to an abortion unless specifically required by State law, and then they fight the legislation.
Any organization that fights transparency and truth is not to be trusted.
“Panthermom”: Too bad your child gets sex education in the back seat of a car. Planned Parenthood is, in reality, “Murder Incorporated” and must be defeated. It would be interesting to see what response your views bring from your parish priest. Perhaps you should ask him.
As to the notion of “MORE” sex ed in schools, that is simply stunningly foolish. Children are bombarded by sex messaging all day, every day. The only source of “sex” ed needed is from the home, with reinforcement from the Church. Unfortunately, most parents do not say much of anything to kids, particularly about the hard issues of contraception, abortion, abstinence, marriage, pornography, and the like.
Planned Parenthood wants kids to have sex — lots of it — and to feel fine about getting an abortion if pregnancy results. It is one of the biggest frauds in American history that PP teaches anything useful or helpful to teens (do they teach abstinence, for example?). All the stuff about doing providing various health services is a scam, serving only to gain credibility. And, what is a “for profit” organization doing teaching anything in public school?
The Business of Abortion is the Agenda of PP – the only question is which of us posting here is deemed unfit (by the Gaystapo Thought Police) to exist.
SEE: Planned Parenthood – Eugenic Roots
“Planned Parenthood is not a name people normally associate with racist or eugenic organizations.
But in this article, I will present some chilling, documented evidence that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was an avowed racist and eugenicist, and that her organizations had several ties to modern history’s most devastating experiment in eugenics: the Third Reich.
The Eugenics Movement of the 19th Century
Thomas R. Malthus was a leading thinker in the eugenics movement of the 19th century.
he movement warned that overpopulation was a dire problem for the future well-being of the human race, that it was a prime cause of poverty, and that the only solution was a purification of the race through a purging of the “unfit” from the gene pool.
Malthus’s best known work was “An Essay on the Principle of Population”, first published in 1798, and in it he said that “all children born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room is made for them by the deaths of grown persons.
We should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality.” He went on to strongly discourage the acts of charity that impede nature’s normal process of weeding out the weak.

I urge Conscientious Voters to review their website for information Censored by the bought and paid for ‘Free Press’ – who can and pretty much exclusively endorse the Demicrat Party Line – and have Manipulated Elections – like the Kolakowski 4 Judge Scam. by withholding important information from the voters in the past.
In the Kolakowski Scam the ‘Trying Times’ (Formerly the Singleton Propaganda empire, now ‘Digital First media’) actually ran endorsements for their candidate in certain parts of the district where it was likely to help him…
And Deliberately Censored the Same Information in other parts of the Same Electoral District (like Eastern Alameda County) – so as hide politically Un-Good information to Favor their Candidate. Such Selective Censorship hat may well have swung elections such as this in favor of their ideological fellow travelers, not that they will ever talk about it – until after their stooges have won..

A principle to remember every election on local taxes, bonds, fees, and assessments: Graphic Money HouseSaveCalifornia.com knows that big government often robs people of personal responsibility and saddles working families, property owners, and small business owners with greater financial burdens. It’s all because big government refuses to investigate and slash its own waste. Because of the influence of government unions and bureaucracy, independent, tough audits are simply not seen.
Therefore, we encourage you to vote NO on ANY AND ALL tax increases, bonds (which is borrowing money, and always more expensive than a direct tax because you must also pay back interest), fees, and assessments. It’s pro-family to keep more of your hard-earned money, so it’s pro-family to oppose wasteful government taking more money from your family. They like to take it incrementally, so you must consistently oppose even the smallest tax/bond/fee/assessment increases in order to inhibit the government from taking more and more and more from your family.
There’s Always De La Salle and Carondelet. Public schools are doing their best to educate against STDs and unwanted pregnancy. As someone that went to a public school, I can tell you that the majority of the student body was sexually active. We were told that the only way to be 100% safe from STD and Pregnancy was through abstinence. However that did not stop teenagers from having sex. The next logical step is to ensure that that have the means and education to be as safe as possible.
So what, “Anton”: Your views, which are just like those of “Panthermom” are nothing more than a green-light for kids to let their hormones free and go at it. The point of “sex education” is not the biology, but the morality. And the problem with schools, and most homes, are that the latter is not taught.
Kids need to know why they are here (as in, created), what is expected of them by God, why they should not have sex, and how to resist the normal, and good, physical demands of their young bodies. Of course there will be sex, even in the best of circumstances, but the victory of Satan is that he has caused most people to throw up their hands and say, “who can control these kids today, go ahead and enjoy, little ones, but be sure that you use condoms, and other birth control, and don’t worry, you sillies, if you ever get preggers, why, we can take care of this (and you don’t ever have to tell Mom and Dad — thanks, judges and legislators).
Your comment, and that of “Panthermom” is madness. Logic is not the issue here, devotion and Faith trump the fallacy of your thinking process. The problem is that no one — no one — instructs kids against sex at their age. Oh, a Catholic instructor or priest might say, “don’t do it now” but then say, “but, if you are going to, here is how you do it”.
Teach the real rules and expectations. And teach real responsibility. What a simply crazy time this is, when what should be seen as a criminal organization is invited into public schools to poison our children.
So, you think Planned Parenthood teaches abstinence?
Planned Parenthood website under Implementing Sex Education says this:
What Are Abstinence-Only Programs and Why Don’t They Work?
Abstinence-only programs (also called abstinence-only-until-marriage programs) promote abstinence from sexual behavior. They strictly exclude discussion of other important sex ed topics, especially those concerned with birth control, safer sex, and sexual orientation. In fact, abstinence-only programs often provide inaccurate and alarmist misinformation about the effectiveness of condoms, contraception, and safer sex.
Advocates for Youth is a not-for-profit organization that champions efforts to help young people make informed and responsible decisions about their reproductive and sexual health. It posts helpful online information about the scientific evaluation of abstinence-only programs and how they fail our children.
and then they go to the reader and say this: Abstinence-only-until marriage programs are unethical, harmful, and stigmatizing. Young people deserve better.
please see for yourself: https://www.advocatesforyouth.org/abstinence-only-programs-home\
It is my understanding that a district on the peninsula, has on one of their campus’, a Planned Parenthood clinic, and that any student from the particular district can go there, without parent’s knowledge of course, and get whatever they need!!!
It’s mom’s like Panthermom that aid and abet the moral degeneracy and ill health of the young who choose to sin by sexual acts outside of marriage. Planned Parenthood is run by sexual deviates who only know one thing: how to do it without getting pregnant. No “Parenthood” and “no Planning” just get a condom and play “safe sex”. What cruelty! What hatred they have for the young!
C-Da-Gigilo sez” Abstinence-only-until marriage programs are unethical, harmful, and stigmatizing.”
You forgot to mention that they cause foot odor and poor gas mileage, AND Also are Punishable Offenses by the Government; who want to make an example of severely Punishing anyone who actually practices abstinence – so others don’t get any Un-Good Ideas they too can be exempt from Mau Mauing by the Twysted Sisterhood….
Been there, Done That – and although it took getting fired in order to finally get copies of the ‘Official State Secret’ convictions for practicing abstinence (publicly Terminated for 1 count of “Insubordination” – In that I would not allow myself to be fired in retaliation for such Thought Crime without seeing the actual charges,
Indeed – demanding to know what you are convicted of in Secret is in itself punishable – as the reasoning says that termination for Abstinence (based on Thought Crime like “Writing letters to the editor expressing negative views on current women’s issues” – which was one of the Official Secret convictions) – Is Not a Punishable Offense, and although you will lose your job for it you have no rights to see the charges because you are Not Being Punished for Wrongdoing, and therefore have No Rights under the Constitution – even though you are going to be fired for it anyway.
While part of the pogrom against me was to simply retaliation for standing up to and exposing MIsandry (Hatred of Men & Boys, Masculinity & Normal Heterosexuality) – it was important to the Twysted Sisterhood that I be punished for unashamedly abstaining from physical relations too.
