Why Are Our Country’s Sexual Ethics So Bad? Planned Parenthood & Convicted Prostitutes Are in Charge of Public School Sex Education

When children are given age-inappropriate or poor information about sex, it’s no wonder that they’ll experience hardships from putting those harmful ideas into practice — hence why one in five Americans now has a sexually transmitted disease. For a host of other reasons as well (such as irresponsible sex leading to becoming pregnant with a partner whom you don’t want to parent with), this is why it’s important to safeguard kids from predators and sources of bad guidance…but sadly, those sources are often held up as “experts” in the public school system.  

Planned Parenthood is one of the top offenders, as the abortion giant is unfortunately allowed to play a wide role in public sex education. Their curriculum certainly does fair damage, exposing and desensitizing young children to pornographic materials and perverse sexual behaviors, and it’s not been shown to decrease teen pregnancy, either. In fact, almost 100 studies have found that their curriculum either has no effect or even negative effects, such as a decrease in condom use and an increase in sexual activity, STDs, and teen pregnancy. 

What a surprise, huh? Planned Parenthood, which makes its big bucks off women in vulnerable situations, is using the classroom to create a more those situations. It’s quite the marketing strategy.

And apparently, Planned Parenthood isn’t the only one we shouldn’t want in our kids’ classrooms. Fox News recently reported that just until recently, a convicted prostitute in Texas was “helping” making decisions for local public school sex education. How on earth did that happen?  

According to local school officials, it was a mistake — no kidding.  

The Red Light District

The Godley Independent School District in Texas spoke out about the situation, claiming to be unaware of the history of Ashley Ketcherside, the convict who was serving on the School Health Advisory Council. Required by state law, this council provides recommendations to school boards on a variety of issues, including “appropriate grade levels and curriculum for instruction regarding […] sex trafficking,” of which Ketcherside had found herself on the wrong side.  

Court records show Ketcherside was twice convicted of prostitution (in both 2012 and 2016), and in another 2016 case, she also had an injunction put against her to prohibit specific children from visiting her due to her being “a known prostitute.” But it gets worse. The alias which she was formerly convicted under — “Lola Brea”— appears to still be in use. Ketcherside allegedly also advertises herself online as an escort (for clarity, escorting for companionship is legal in Texas; trading sex for money is not), and the persona “Lola Brea” was allegedly active just last month.  

A stellar example for our children, right?  

The school district has since let her go since the information became public, but this remains a warning to parents with children in public schools. Ask yourself: do you really know and are you fully comfortable with the people who are talking to your children about sex and making decisions about their curriculum? Once investigated, it’s likely that the answer is no.  

And for those without children but who see the incredible mess many Millennials and Gen Z have made of their dating life due to poor sexual advice (leading to many pregnancies which get aborted), when are we going to speak up about the root cause? This is why the Pro-Life Generation is pushing a culture change, as well as life-affirming laws, because our institutions are a huge part of the problem.
