Parents across the country have woken up to the reality that public education is attempting to replace parents and indoctrinate children at a young age. Look no further than protests in northern Virginia, where high school students staged a walkout to show solidarity for abortion.
At McLean High School, located in a posh Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C., multiple students held up signs and chanted pro-abortion slogans during school hours for about a half hour.
One senior student, Leah Siegel, told NBC Washington, “I wanted to organize this to remind people to continue to show up.”
Charlie Clayton, a high school senior, said, “I’ve always been passionate about women’s rights and gender equality. You gotta do what you gotta do. You have to speak out or you won’t be heard.”
Another senior, Atticus Gore, said, “As a cisgender male, it’s my responsibility to stand up and support the women who have done so much to support me.”
The term “cisgender” is defined by the Left as one’s biological birth gender, which means someone can be called a cisgender female or a cisgender male.
Yet not all students were in favor of the abortion protest or the issue at large. A pro-life activist with the Students for Life of America organization, Hannah Wolfe, said that pro-life students are “having conversations with our peers about the issue of abortion.”
The activist group called Generation Ratify Virginia was behind the walkout protests and claimed it helped organize 45 protests at Virginia schools. On its website, the group parroted many talking points from the Left. It claimed that the modern era is a “time of unprecedented attacks on our reproductive rights” and in 2022, “there have been more than 500 anti-abortion restrictions introduced across 41 state legislatures.”
The group cited the draft opinion leak from the Supreme Court and claimed that the current make-up of the court “will not protect young people’s reproductive freedoms.”
For the record, the phrase “reproductive freedom” is often used by the Left to describe abortion in neutral terms.
Generation Ratify Virginia falsely claimed that anti-abortion (or pro-life) legislation is “unconstitutional” because “young people are being stripped of their right to healthcare and bodily autonomy.” It called for “a mass youth mobilization to defend and expand our access to abortion.”
Interestingly enough, the group’s original purpose was to push Virginia to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment and not abortion. But its mission stated that it will lead “an intersectional feminist revolution that empowers and advocates for the full equality of young women, non-conforming, non-binary, femme, and Queer folx.”
In other words, it is a Leftist activist group, geared toward teenagers, to push LGBTQIA+ ideology, abortion, and other Leftist ideology into the mainstream American civil society.
