Calvary Chapel pastor Frank Ramseur on Thursday afternoon asked the County School Board not to use the Planned Parenthood sex education program.
Noting that Planned Parenthood was attempting to make a "re-emergence" in Chattanooga, he said the local schools should continue to use state programs that focus on abstinence instead.
Ann Roth, who was with him, said Planned Parenthood had hired a life educator in Chattanooga.
She said under current programs that teen pregnancies and teen birth rates had fallen sharply.
Board members made no comment.
