AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
February 20, 2019
Oppose AccessMatters Petition Deadline Extended and Now Online – If you live in the Valley Grove School District Thank Them!
The deadline for paper petitions opposing the establishment of Planned Parenthood partner AccessMatters “health resource centers/clinics’ in the four Venango County school districts has been extended to March 7th. Please mail back to AFA of PA, P.O. Box 1048, Franklin, PA 16323 by that date.
We also have now placed online petitions for each of the districts, so feel free to forward this email to others within the county who would consider signing the petition. On February 11th the Valley Grove school board decided not to partner with AccessMatters. However, we still want to present these petitions to let them know people do oppose, but more importantly they will be presented as a way of saying ‘thank you’ for making the right decision!
The Oil City school board will be voting on Monday, February 25th whether to allow AccessMatters to make a presentation or not.

Planned Parenthood Partner AccessMatters wants to establish ‘health resource centers/clinics’ in Venango County high schools. What we know: 1.) AccessMatters was formerly known as Family Planning Council. 2) They are financially supported by Planned Parenthood. 3.) Their goal is to increase access to “sexual and reproductive health” – meaning contraception, chemical or surgical abortion and condoms. 4.) The clinics function as confidential drop-in centers at the schools — meaning parents will not be informed as to what was discussed or distributed to their child. 5.) The counselors at the clinics are trained by AccessMatters.
