The National Education Association, a nationwide union that represents teachers, custodians, teacher aides, and the like, has officially come out in support of abortion on demand, further moving itself from a labor advocacy organization to just another leftist group that supports the wishes of Planned Parenthood.
Business Item #56 passed recently a national conference states, “Furthermore, the NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person’s right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people. The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade.”
When you think about it though, the NEA’s support for abortion actually aligns well with the interests of its members. Let me explain:
- Planned Parenthood and the NEA generally support the same pro-abortion Democratic candidates. So the more people that go to Planned Parenthood, the more money that goes to candidates who also support the labor goals of the NEA (*Students for Life isn’t taking a position on issues like wages, collective bargaining, or other issues that directly relate to a labor union).
- Planned Parenthood relies on young women to go there, and young men to pressure women into getting birth control and abortion. The best way to reach these people is through the public schools and through their sex ed programs, which are of course taught by NEA members.
- NEA members also need Planned Parenthood, because there is a history of public school teachers and public school employees sexually assaulting and committing statutory rape against students, which Planned Parenthood is all too keen to cover up for them (which makes the first half of the resolution ironic, since it says they support the #MeToo movement).
- Think we’re being over the top? Exhibit 1: Teacher unions in Rhode Island opposed a law to criminalize sex between teachers and students (i.e. 13-year-olds). Exhibit 2: The ACLU trained public school teachers on how to teach students to get an abortion without their parents knowing. Exhibit 3: Matt Walsh has documented just a handful of sexual abuse cases involving teachers, with links here. Walsh notes, “A study commissioned by the Department of Education found that 1 in 10 public school students are “targets of sexual misconduct” by teachers. That works out to over 4 million victims. Out of that number, 3 million have experienced actual sexual assault.
So let’s review: Planned Parenthood wants kids to get on birth control and have abortions as early and as often as possible (if that seems like a contradiction, remember that 50% of abortions were committed on women who were using contraception while having sex). Some public school teachers and employees, represented by the National Education Association and other unions, sexually abuse students, sometimes getting them pregnant. When a 40-year-old man brings a 15-year-old girl who does not share his last name into an abortion facility, alarms should be going off, but not for Planned Parenthood–remember, they oppose even letting parents know their child is getting an abortion. And teacher unions oppose efforts to criminalize sex between teachers and students (which by the way, even if charges ended up being dropped or pled down, would alert parents to their kids being abused).
All makes sense now, doesn’t it?
