Excerpt from STOPP International, 12.2.09:
“Champion of Sexual Literacy” choking every nickel out of abstinence education
Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards was presented the Champion of Sexual Literacy Award by the National Sexuality Resource Center in October, and she took advantage of the occasion by giving a talk laced with contempt for pro-life advocates and chastity education.
First, she told the crowd that she had worked to sign up one million PP activists to campaign for Barack Obama, then applauded Dr. Ruth’s plan for getting people to sign onto the campaign by saying, “Tell everyone, sign this card and you will have better sex for the rest of your life.”
She accepted the award on behalf of all the PP sex educators and peer educators, and said PP is working to build the most sexually healthy generation ever, “something which [she thinks] is actually within our reach.”
She then told a story – a big story – about a man named Irwin Royster, who converted an old sporting goods store, put it together with “baling wire and duct tape,” furnished it with couches, decorated it with art, and made a place for boys and girls to hang out after school and learn from Irwin about their bodies and “healthy sexuality.” Many of these poor kids, she said, didn’t have any other place to go after school, and good old Irwin was watching out for them, even though “he didn’t have two nickels to rub together.”
What she didn’t say is that Irwin, whom Richards refers to as a Pied Piper of children, is the director of “community education” for none other than PP of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., where he focuses on African American youth. PPMW had an income of over $7.6 million in 2007 and assets totaling over $3.9 million dollars. But according to Richards, poor Irwin didn’t have two nickels to rub together.
Richards’ talk then flashed back to the person she has referred to as her “strongest weapon” – Barack Obama. The highlight of Barack Obama’s campaign, Richards said, was when he met with Irwin’s kids. And this all happened in the shadow of the Capitol, she said, where a billion and a half dollars was spent on abstinence-only education.
What Irwin could have done with even a drop of that money, Richards whined.
So that’s why Richards wants us to believe that Irwin didn’t have two nickels to rub together! PP’s millions are not enough; it wants all of the tax money that was being directed toward abstinence education so that poor old Irwin can instruct more kids in the ways of immorality via PP sex indoctrination!
She then proclaimed that the greatest thing that has happened since the Obama administration’s takeover is that the federal budget eliminated abstinence-only education funding in America.
