L.A. School District Partnering With Planned Parenthood in School Clinics

 Notorious abortion purveyor Planned Parenthood is partnering with the Los Angeles public school district to place school-based “health” clinics in the city’s high schools, reported the Los Angeles Times. While birth rates in Los Angeles have been falling over the past several years, mirroring the drop statewide, there are still areas in the county where teen birth rates are high, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “The heavily Latino and low-income neighborhood around Roosevelt High School is one of them,” reported the Times, which is why the Los Angeles Unified School District has invited Planned Parenthood to set up shop there.

Notorious abortion purveyor Planned Parenthood is partnering with the Los Angeles public school district to place school-based “health” clinics in the city’s high schools, reported the Los Angeles Times. While birth rates in Los Angeles have been falling over the past several years, mirroring the drop statewide, there are still areas in the county where teen birth rates are high, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “The heavily Latino and low-income neighborhood around Roosevelt High School is one of them,” reported the Times, which is why the Los Angeles Unified School District has invited Planned Parenthood to set up shop there.

“Throughout the school year, students visit the on-campus clinic to get birth control, pregnancy tests, counseling, and screening for sexually transmitted diseases,” noted the Times. The service is free and “confidential,” the Times pointed out — meaning teen girls can visit the clinic for pregnancy testing and birth control without their parents ever finding out. That can happen, noted the pro-life website LifeNews.com, “because California is one of about 20 states that still do not have any type of parental involvement law on abortion.” The “collaboration” between the school and the abortion giant is “designed to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies among teenagers” at Roosevelt High School, reported the Times.

Because Planned Parenthood derives a significant portion of its profits from performing abortions, it is reasonable to assume that its motive for the “partnership” extends beyond merely providing birth control and counseling.
