The Alaska Division of Public Health is helping organize a health conference in February that includes Planned Parenthood abortion activists and at least one radical youth educator who pushes drag-queen themes, gender confusion and explicit sexual instruction to Alaska Native youth and their parents.
Co-organized with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, the virtual conference targets rural and urban Alaska health professionals with the aim of instilling “best practices” and tools for addressing “maternal, child and family health issues.” The conference also provides recommendations to health professionals and policy makers in rural and urban Alaska.
Set for Feb. 22-24, the conference is financially backed in part by Bartlett Regional Hospital, Children’s Hospital at Providence and the Mat-Su Health Foundation.
According to the conference program, it begins with a welcome address from Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer Anne Zink, followed by Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium President Valerie Davidson.
During the three-day conference registrants will hear from dozens of speakers on a variety of topics that include health equity, fetal alcohol syndrome, childbirth experiences during COVID, suicide prevention, telehealth, children’s health and vaccines. At least two of the talks, however, promote explicit sex-ed programming for youth and/or those with disabilities.
One breakout talk features Planned Parenthood officials Hannah Guzzi and Nicole Mortenson. Guzzi serves as the Planned Parenthood’s education manager in Alaska, and Mortenson is the abortion business’s community outreach educator.
According to the conference schedule, Guzzi and Mortenson will introduce conference attendees to Planned Parenthood’s sex-ed curriculum, called “Linking Families and Teens” – or LiFT.
Geared for middle and high school students, the curriculum is designed specifically for youth who live in rural communities. One aspect of the course teaches youth, as young as 13, how to procure and use condoms or access abortion services without their parents’ knowledge.
The curriculum emphasizes acceptance of gender-fluid notions about sexuality and is filled with references to multiple gender identities and sexual orientations.
At one point, the curriculum instructs teachers to give students a “wooden penis or other condom demonstration tool” so they can demonstrate proper application of a condom.
“Remind them that now is a great time to practice so that they will feel comfortable in the future if they use condoms or need to share this info with their friends,” the instructor guide states. “Guide them through the activity by reading the steps aloud while teens practice by rolling their condom over their fingers.”
Additionally, the LiFT curriculum points teens to free and confidential sexual healthcare services which they can access without their parents’ knowledge.
At several points in the LiFT curriculum, youth read about sexual relationships between same-sex partners, before being asked to role play how they would interact with their lover, whether they would notify their parents, and how to test for STDs. The curriculum suggests that contacting a “family planning clinic” like Planned Parenthood might be best before teens involve their parents.
Later during the conference, Hannah Warren will provide strategies on how to instruct “caring adults” to interact with Native youth regarding “sensitive topics.” Warren oversees youth programming for the Alaska Native Tribal Heath Consortium. Under her direction, ANTHC has a placed a heavy emphasis on promoting gender fluidity, LGBTQ identity, explicit sex education and abortion, while encouraging elders and parents to accept these ideas. ANTHC programming also provides Alaska Native youth with tips on how to engage in sanitized anal sex, while safely using sex toys with their partners.
The Alaska Watchman reached out to the Alaska Department of Health, asking for comment on why these three individuals were invited to speak at the upcoming conference. There was no response.
