Colorado Springs, Colo., Mar 16, 2005 / 22:00 pm
After months of heated debate, a Colorado Springs school district has decided to ban Planned Parenthood from speaking in their schools.
The debate began six months ago when Mike Gamble, a Colorado Springs man became “fed up with what he had learned about Planned Parenthood and their widely accepted sex education classes that have been taught in the public schools over the past 30 years.”
Enlisting the help of a small group of dedicated Christians and utilizing the Freedom of Information Act, which requires disclosure of information about groups who use federal funds, Gamble began a campaign of displaying what he calls “the graphic horrors of abortion” outside three area high schools where the group was scheduled to speak.
Though some, Christians and non-Christians alike, have criticized his use of graphic images to spread his message, the strategy eventually worked and the school district opted to cease the invitations to Planned Parenthood.
