When Will Wayne Sanstead Address The Planned Parenthood/DPI Scandal?

PlainsDaily.com broke the news that North Dakota’s Department of Public Instruction was partnering with abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood to put on a seminar about sex education for the state’s teachers.

Obviously, a group as polarizing and objectionable as Planned Parenthood participating in such an event is a controversial issue. I’ve encouraged readers of this blog to email Sanstead (you can still do so using the form below) and tell him to end his department’s relationship with Planned Parenthood.

Hundreds of emails have been sent, but not much has been heard out of DPI. Indeed, Scott Hennen’s producer has been trying to get Sanstead on the radio to talk about the issue with concerned citizens for over a week now, and Sanstead’s office is not responding.

At the very least, doesn’t Sanstead owe the public an explanation? Something beyond the (poorly written) email he sent one of the SAB readers who contacted him?

Use the form below to email Sanstead and demand a public explanation for his decision to work with Planned Parenthood.

    Sanstead reminds me of the Unholy Trio of DC in a way. He’s been in office so long he believes he owns it, and owes no explanations to anyone.

    The modern teaching methods are pure indoctrination into Pollitcal Correct Marxist cultural terrorism and collectivist revisionist brainwashing. Indoctrinate, re-enforce and role model the indoctrinations. Pure soviet marxist Freudian collectivist one worldism.

    In kindergarten and preschool classrooms all over America, tiny young humans are being taught to regiment each other’s behavior. Obedient little collectivists are learning to submit to group wishes in order to be judged “correct” — politically correct. Resistance is futile.

    They are indeed getting bolder…This is what I been trying to warn folks about for so long…

    Maybe Sanstead doesn’t want to answer the inevitable question of if an anti-abortion group would be given the same kind of access.

    Just because you demand a response on a faux scandal you are trying to create doesn’t mean he owes you an explanation.

      He owes the people of ND an explanation. That’s democracy.

      • Dakotacyr

        no, he doesn’t when it is a made up scandal.

  • Dakotacyr

    Democracy isn’t making a scandal up and then crying it’s not democracy cuz he won’t answer your questions about a made up scandal. What a bunch of hooey!

      Having an abortion provider provide seminars about what they do to the
      education establishment is a scandal.

    Maybe if there’s no scandal there’s no need for an explanation. Personally I want planned parenthood helping schools develop sex ed programs. You want abstinance only and we all saw how great that worked in Alaska……

      Like the sex education/promotion that the schools have been doing have done
      any better. As soon as they came out the teen pregnancy rate doubled.
