40 SALVO Issue 23which urged all 50 states to viewour sex laws as “outdated andcontrary to human nature.” Con-versely, the institute report spurredlawyerly claims that “sex educa-tion” would reduce sex crimes anddiseases.Sexual libertinism becamethe leading scholarly opinion. In1964, as New York University be-gan awarding degrees in “sexualhealth,” “brave pioneers”
met atthe Kinsey Institute to allot “sexeducation” to the newly ormedSex Inormation and EducationCouncil o the U.S. (SIECUS). Thisorganization joined with PlannedParenthood in attacking sexualmorality on a global scale. Bothgroups were unded by the Play-boy Foundation to train childrenabout sexual “health.”In 1968, a book by Kinsey’s co-author and sometime lover WardellPomeroy,
Boys and Sex,
appearedas a school sex-ed text nationwide,normalizing sodomy, prostitution,sadomasochism, and homosexual-ity. It even described bestiality as“a loving sexual relationship withan animal.” Pomeroy advised chil-dren that “premarital intercoursedoes have its denite values as atraining ground.”
By the 1970s, public schools in theU.S. were fooded with radical sex“education.” Thomas Sowell andothers have noted that teen “preg-nancies soared as ‘sex education’spread pervasively throughout thepublic schools.”
This all helped to erode thebarriers to legalized abortion, un-til
Roe v. Wade
wiped them outin 1973. That same year, PlannedParenthood’s president, Alan Gutt-macher, noted, “The only avenuethe International Planned Parent-hood Federation and its alliescould travel to win the battle orabortion on demand is through sexeducation.”
At that time, “sex positive” ed-ucation rarely mentioned condoms,an omission that likely helped leadto an increase in teen pregnanciesthat ended in abortion—which inturn increased the “need” or moreschool sex education.By 1974, Planned Parenthoodwas mass-distributing a bookletcalled “You’ve Changed the Com-bination.” It was a ull-blown,rontal assault on traditionalAmerican sexual morality, includ-ing marriage. The authors toldour children, “Sex is best betweenriends. . . . Have sexual relation-ships only with riends. . . . I she’syoung, always ask.” The bookletalso normalized homosexualityand ridiculed marriage: “Do youwant a virgin to marry? Buy one.There are girls in that business,too. Marriage is the price you’llpay, and you’ll get the virgin. Verytemporarily.”Today, Planned Parenthooddominates public-school sex edu-cation. It battles every attemptat abstinence education, or aresurgence in teen chastity wouldreduce teen pregnancies andthreaten Planned Parenthood’slucrative abortion business and itspharmaceutical prots.
Today, the United Kingdom seemsto have run ahead o the U.S. insex education, as evidenced bya new program orced on Brit-ish schoolchildren. It starts withseven-year-olds, despite parents’protests. One reporter tried to puta light spin on his description o an

Andthey will continue to suffer the consequences. Aslong ago as 1994, even the Guttmacher Instituteacknowledged that approximately one in foursexually active teens were contracting a sexuallytransmitted disease each year.
