How Easy it was…

[Note: Priests for Life coordinates the "Child Protection Project," which brings to school districts the concerns of taxpayers that referral to family planning services, like Planned Parenthood, is a legal liability, and asks those districts how they are protecting themselves. The project is explained on our website. Here is a helpful testimony from an activist, demonstrating just how easy the project is.]

I felt I must write to reassure others of how easy it was to present the case against Planned Parenthood at my school district’s September board meeting. I strongly encourage others to do the same.

It was such a simple, straightforward business matter that I wondered, afterward, why I had felt so intimidated by the prospect of addressing the board. I simply presented the LDI legal notification and my written questions, introducing the materials as I distributed them. No one interrupted or challenged me, or even asked for clarification. The materials were self-explanatory, so my remarks were minimal.

The whole "presentation" lasted no more than three minutes and consisted mainly of passing out copies. I read question #8 as an example of the kinds of questions I was asking as a citizen taxpayer.

I requested written responses from the school board, suggested a two-month time frame for their response, and asked to receive the answers at a November board meeting, to which they agreed.

I was calm, polite, and matter-of-fact in my presentation, and I was treated respectfully in return.

I may not like the answers I get at the November board meeting, or I may be pleasantly surprised, but in any event, I will have gotten my school board and the school’s administrative staff to acknowledge the clear evidence against Planned Parenthood in the matter of its violation of mandatory reporting laws. That, in itself, is a victory, and will surely cause the district to have second thoughts about the "wisdom" of inviting PP to present to its students in future.
