Cleveland, We Have a Problem
Linda Harvey, Mission America
An obscene, pro-abortion site, 216Teens, is being managed by the health department
One of many explicit posts from 216Teens
The city of Cleveland Ohio is putting the lives of its children at risk. And they are receiving federal taxpayer funds to do so.
No, it’s not COVID. For that low risk disease, children are sheltered, masked, kept away from many schools, and scared to death by the hovering, helicopter government bureaucracy.
But what about advice to teens that leads to lifelong complications from underage sexual promiscuity, along with the high likelihood of emotional disaster? And may cause the death of a child through abortion?
Who will be held accountable for this?
Cleveland is not alone, but let’s look specifically at what Cuyahoga County, Ohio communicates to teens on a website the health department operates, www.216Teens.org (216 is the Cleveland area code).
It’s funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and claims to tell the truth about sexuality for adolescents. But very quickly the extreme bias is evident. The site includes zero pro-life or abstinence-focused resources. There is a nominal page on abstinence which dismisses it quickly as almost impossible. Adolescents who visit the site will read biased, X-rated, high-risk, pro-abortion and pro-homosexual advice encouraging early experimental sex.
216Teens is NOT “medically accurate” and “evidence-based” as it claims to be. All the best medicine and evidence points to providing youth with an unequivocal message that delaying sex until marriage is positively correlated with life success and healthy outcomes. Premature sexuality leads to the opposite result.
A YouTube video produced by Protect Ohio Children lays out the irresponsible, dangerous messages of 216Teens and its pro-abortion, pro-“LGBTQ,” condom-obsessed, anti-abstinence advice.
For instance, the 216Teens Facebook page included a recent post from NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) that trashes authentic abstinence. “Say it with us. Abstinence only programs don’t work. No matter how many times the anti-choice movement pushes its lies about sex ed, science isn’t on their side. EVERY young person deserves inclusive, evidence-based sex ed at school. ”
Ohio parents need to recognize that this is open defiance of an Ohio law mandating that sexuality education shall emphasize abstinence until marriage. Where are Ohio lawmakers and the Ohio State Board of Education to hold the Cuyahoga County Board of Health accountable for this illegal, child-endangering action?

No revised history, speech codes in Ohio schools
The Ohio State Board of Education recently passed a resolution which is more than disturbing. They are going to evaluate Ohio schools for bias, hate speech, white privilege and white supremacy. Conservative members tried to talk sense into the foolish liberals on the board, but to no avail.
Also, the head of the Ohio Department of Education, Paulo DeMaria, has expressed interest in the radical "1619 Project" which takes an axe to American history and presents a deeply divisive, inaccurate picture of our country's founding.
