    Thank you, Dr. Hunnell, for being a champion of truth and life! We are in a battle against Comprehensive Sex Ed and need more doctors like you telling the truth and sharing it! Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE) is harming our society. It is telling our kids, “abstinence is the only fool-proof method for not getting an infection or getting pregnant but if you’re going to have sex, wear a condom.” That is a lie from the pit of hell. The CSE crowd does not tell children about the emotional, spiritual and even all the physical damage of casual, premarital sex. It does not tell all the risks of contraception. It does not clearly outline all the emotional damage done by CSE. They hide it. They want to sell birth control (even though the World Health Organization classifies birth control pills as a Class 1 Carcinogen), condoms and abortions. Planned Parenthood underwrites the teaching of CSE through grants and partner/affiliate programs. Trust us when we say Planned Parenthood has no business teaching abstinence to our children! Thank you for being a light in the darkness, for encouraging families to raise their children and not the government and thank you for being a faithful doctor who cares about the health of our children!
