Planned Parenthood the culprit behind radical sex-ed bill

sex educationA very aggressive bill – one that's almost "militant," by some accounts – would immerse public school students in Colorado into a radical LGBTQ sex-education curriculum.

The law governing the current sex-ed curriculum for Colorado public schools, first passed in 2013, made concessions for Christians and conservative parents who had concerns. But Stephanie Curry of the Colorado Springs-based Family Policy Alliance reports a new bill now in the legislature, HB 1032, would completely do away with those concessions.

"The 2013 law currently allows schools to stress abstinence – this new bill will no longer allow that," she explains. "The 2013 law also allows students to discuss moral, ethical, and religious beliefs on sex – and the new bill will no longer allow that."

The public policy manager for FPA also reports that principals, teachers, and school boards would no longer have a say in the sex-ed curriculum being taught – and that Planned Parenthood would be primarily involved under the new legislation.

"Planned Parenthood writes the vast majority of comprehensive sex-ed curriculum," she adds, "so Planned Parenthood will be in the classrooms in front of our children who do not have an option to opt out."

In a column about the sex-ed bill, Curry goes into more detail about Planned Parenthood's role:

"It probably comes as no surprise that Planned Parenthood lobbies across the nation for comprehensive sex education bills to be enacted, and Colorado was no exception.

"It certainly isn't coincidence that Planned Parenthood is one of the world's largest providers of comprehensive sex education materials in the world, peddling radical content that even the most liberal among us might find too shocking for our taste.

"Planned Parenthood's ready-made sex education curriculum just happens to fit the exact requirements HB 1032 would impose on local school districts. Its materials often promote virtually any type of sexual exploration and experimentation as a 'safe and healthy' part of any relationship, no matter the child's age or biological sex, just as long as you 'say yes.'"

HB 1032 continues to make its way through the legislature and appears on today's Senate docket for its second reading. Thus far it has passed through four committees: House Health & Insurance; House Appropriations; Senate Health & Human Services; and Senate Appropriations.

According to Curry, liberal legislators who control both the House and the Senate have blatantly ignored thousands of parents who have called or attended the public hearings to protest the proposal.
