The Teenage Communication Theatre (TACT) is a project run by Planned Parenthood of North Texas. Founded by community health educator Beth Farmer in 1984, the group consists of of Dallas-area high-schoolers between 13 and 17 who perform “original, interactive theatre pieces about issues that affect today’s youth.” The concept for the project comes from the “Theatre Prevention Program,” initiated by a New York Family Planning center in 1973. Planned Parenthood has several of “theaters” throughout the U.S.
Planned Parenthood of North Texas have stated that TACT “is a vital part of [their] Education Department.” And a report prepared by Susan M. Wolfe, and Kathryn Allen (PPNT) stated that TACT “remains a primary piece of [PPNT]’s community education.” It is clear therefore that this project is a key component of PPNT’s plan to target youth in this area. It is also important to note that this is very much a “top-down” project whereby board members of PPNT determine the agenda, and where adults involved in Planned Parenthood coordinate and lead the kids in their “theactivism”.
Today at a busy intersection in Dallas, the group was in action, promoting greater access to sex-education. I stopped to speak with one of the groups of 3 – 4 teens which were located on each corner.
The point of this article is not to demonize these kids for standing on a street corner to promote Planned Parenthood services and political agenda.
The thing I found interesting was that Planned Parenthood is not only sending their people into schools to teach kids that having sex is ok so long as they “use protection” – but they are also training kids to teach other kids their values.
Remember that telling kids that its ok to become sexually active & providing them with the tools for “safe sex” virtually guarantees that kids who would otherwise have steered clear of sex until they were older will feel more confident, and will “get into it.” And Planned Parenthood knows just as well as you and I do that kids are even less likely than adults to use contraception correctly every time. Which means these kids are 100% more likely to end up pregnant than if they’d waited, because contraception fails, and because you damn sure can’t get pregnant if you don’t have sex. Oh but if you do kids – we’re always here for you, and we won’t tell your parents either…
Remember that Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the United States. In 2008 Planned Parenthood committed 305,310 abortions, netting $137,389,500; 36.7% of the income from their health centers.
That’s all – no huge conspiracy uncovered here – just an update on Planned Parenthood’s tactics of influencing the next generation with their anti-life agenda.
