sex educationDespite the loud vocal opposition at a hearing in Denver, a controversial sex education bill continues to make its way through various committees of the Colorado state government.

According to Denver7, House Bill 19-1032 would add more "human sexuality" curriculum on topics such as consent, birth control, abstinence, STD prevention, LGBTQ inclusion, and healthy relationships. Described as "a serious overreach" by opponents but as "age-appropriate ... information" by supporters, a summary of the bill says it:

"... clarifies content requirements for public schools that offer comprehensive human sexuality education and prohibits instruction from explicitly or implicitly teaching or endorsing religious ideology or sectarian tenets or doctrines, using shame-based or stigmatizing language or instructional tools, employing gender norms or gender stereotypes, or excluding the relational or sexual experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender individuals.”

Jeff Hunt is director of Colorado Christian University's Centennial Institute, the school's public policy think tank. Hunt says under such a law, religious views on sexuality would be suppressed.

"This is really a special interest effort to force out any opposition to the work of Planned Parenthood and the ACLU when it comes to their definition in curriculum on human sexuality," he tells OneNewsNow.

Hunt says in this Democrat-controlled legislature, the leftist, liberal agenda would take precedence over traditional family values.

"It's very clear from the Democrats in this legislature that they want the schools to replace the parents," he argues. "And it's their vision, it's their curriculum, it's their values that are going to be forced upon the children of Colorado."

According to Hunt, only a handful of citizens typically show up to testify before a legislative committee – but he reports that around 300 people showed up to testify at last week's hearing on the measure. Afterwards, the bill passed out of committee on a 7-4 party-line vote. Democrat Susan Lontine, one of the bill's prime sponsors, sits on that committee; so does Democrat Brianna Titone, Colorado's first transgender lawmaker.
