.A. School District pushes kids to Planned Parenthood Qpid website: 12-year-olds don’t need parental consent for STD tests

The following comes from a June 1 story in the Christian Post.

A first of its kind sex education program is being taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District, in which students as young as 12 are encouraged to share their HIV and STD status with their sexual partners by way of a text message that reveals they were tested for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The text message also includes a disclaimer which reads: “This person MAY have had sex since being tested. Always be safe, use condoms.”

In their heath classes, students in the seventh through 12th grades will watch a three-minute YouTube video created by the company Qpid, pronounced cupid, which tells students to go to the nearest Planned Parenthood clinic, or HIV testing center to be tested, and to then register at the qpid.me website to share their results online or by phone. The test, however, doesn’t confirm a diagnosis of HPV or herpes.
