URGENT ACTION ALERT!
We Must Act
to Keep Planned Parenthood from Infiltrating Our Schools
Below to Learn More
Parents send their daughters to school to get an education, not to get an abortion. Our children are being targeted by the abortion industry, which is now aggressively expanding beyond their sexuality education curriculum in schools. The abortion industry now seeks to become abortion service providers in our schools. Their goals are to provide abortion referrals, tele-abortion, publicly funded transportation to and from "pregnancy related appointments" (abortions) during the school day, and even establish Planned Parenthood clinics on site.
MDRTL supports policies that create an environment that supports students who parent their children, but we cannot support any policy or programs that allows the abortion business to peddle their deadly ware to vulnerable school girls.
We must do all we can to protect our children from this radical abortion agenda.
MDRTL NEEDS YOUR HELP.
Bills which place our Maryland school children in harms way and are OPPOSED by MDRTL include:
Public Schools - Pregnant and Parenting Students
- Policies and Reports (Click bill number to read bill language)
State Department of Education and Maryland Department of Health - Maryland School-Based Health Center Standards - Telehealth
Nonpublic Schools - Adequate Health Services - Eligibility for Reimbursement
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO
1)Watch the video below as Legislative Director, Laura Bogley explains why these bills are dangerous and must be opposed.
2)Go to the
