Newspeak in North Carolina: the "Healthy Youth Act"
Will they, one wonders, teach the kids that chlamydia, one of the most pervasive STDs among teens, is passed by skin to skin contact. Condoms, spermicides, pills, shots, patches, diaphragms, vaginal rings, the morning after pill, etc. do not protect against it. No doubt they will tell the kids they need not talk to their parents but can visit their friendly school counselor or local PP office to get whatever they need including STD treatments and AIDS tests...oh, and abortions when their birth control method fails. All of these sex ed programs increase the level of sexual activity among kids. Duh! That's what it's all about. PP doesn't make a cent off of chastity. These kids are sex consumers.
Orwell was a novice when it came to describing the language of the lie. Planned Parenthood has it down to a science. Reproductive "health" is all about encouraging behavior that causes disease and makes its victims unhealthy and even sterile. The legislation would be more accurately described as the "Corrupting Youth Act." That it is described as "healthy" is a classic example of Orwell's "newspeak."
