Los Angeles is contemplating where to place its next Planned Parenthood facility and appears to be landing on none other than a high school campus. Notably, the clinic’s website acknowledges that “under California law minors have the right to consent to reproductive health services without parental consent or notification.”

While the clinic would not be offering abortions, puberty blockers or hormone therapy to students at the school location; however, the staff would be allowed to refer students to off-campus Planned Parenthood sites for “services not offered.”

Families and taxpayers should be horrified that the Norwalk-La Mirada USD is considering a partnership with Planned Parenthood,” Parents Defending Education president and founder Nicole Neily told Fox News.

“The fact that the contract specifically notes that ‘under California law minors have the right to consent to reproductive heth services without parental consent or notification’ is appalling in and of itself.”al

Referring to the possibility of students being referred to off-campus clinics for “services not offered,” Neily continued, “Other Planned Parenthood clinics do provide gender-affirming hormone therapy, so there is a very real possibility students will be referred off-campus to receive this treatment – again, with zero parental notification.”

“To add insult to injury, there is no way for parents to EVER obtain this information, as the contract asserts that all medical records are to be maintained by Planned Parenthood,” Neily said.

Minneapolis teachers union will layoff white teachers before ‘educators of color’

White Minneapolis teachers will be laid off “or reassigned” before “educators of color” the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) declared.  In the event that layoffs need to occur, MPS created a contract that is designed “to remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination by the District” reports Alpha News.

“Past discrimination by the District disproportionately impacted the hiring of underrepresented teachers in the District, as compared to the relevant labor market and the community, and resulted in a lack of diversity of teachers,” the agreement states.

The Star Tribune reports that the “seniority-disrupting language” of the agreement is one of the first of its kind in the entire United States. Teachers are normally laid off or excessed based on seniority alone, but the new agreement adds a racial component as well.

James Dickey, senior trial counsel at the Upper Midwest Law Center (UMLC), says the racial component violates both the Minnesota and United States constitutions.

“The [collective bargaining agreement] … openly discriminates against white teachers based only on the color of their skin, and not their seniority or merit,” Dickey told Alpha News. “Minneapolis teachers and taxpayers who oppose government-sponsored racism like this should stand up against it.”

According to the Star Tribune, roughly 16% of MPS teachers with tenure and 27% of its probationary teachers are non-white, while more than 60% of students are non-white.

The agreement adds that non-white teachers, as well as those working in various programs, “may be exempted from district-wide layoff[s] outside seniority order.” The agreement also prioritizes the reinstatement of teachers from “underrepresented populations” over white teachers.
