Keep Planned Parenthood out of Reading High School!
Thankfully, since the Center for Medical Progress began releasing undercover investigative videos in the summer of 2015, public opinion about Planned Parenthood has started to change.
Abortion reforms have swept across America. Nearly two-dozen states have defunded Planned Parenthood or are considering doing so. Late term abortions are likewise being banned, and in 2017 alone over 20 abortion clinics around the country have been shut down.
In addition, eight in ten Americans agree that abortion should have real legal limits. Only about one in ten Americans support unrestricted abortion.
Today, an overwhelming number of young people are passionate and pro-active about protecting the unborn—especially here in Pennsylvania!
Thanks to the efforts of pro-life students at Reading High School, the school board has pulled a proposal to set up a Planned Parenthood sexual counseling center at this Pennsylvania school. The school board will likely debate the proposal at a meeting in August. Please support the efforts of these pro-life students by telling the board to respect the wishes of the community and keep Planned Parenthood out of the high school!
Planned Parenthood counseling centers in high schools offer students “sexual counseling,” which is code for birth control and condoms, advice to have more irresponsible sex—not less, and funneling students to Planned Parenthood clinics where they can receive abortions.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, stated, "If Planned Parenthood is allowed to be inside Reading High School, they are going to replicate this model in high schools – and likely middle schools – across the country. They cannot be allowed prime access to our children.”
Through the efforts of pro-life young people, the school board has backed down until August. Among the protesters was 18-year-old Olivia Clark who gave birth to a son last year that she says was saved by the pro-life movement. Another protesters was 20-year-old Julia Coppa who says she thinks Planned Parenthood looks down on young people and doesn’t think young people know what is best for them.
Every day, Planned Parenthood callously takes the lives of 300 unborn babies. We simply cannot let them inside of our high schools. Please sign this petition now supporting the efforts of local pro-life students to keep Planned Parenthood out of Reading High School!

No Planned Parenthood at Reading High School!
