Radical Planned Parenthood sex-ed school bill -- being voted in Mass. Senate tomorrow, Wednesday Nov. 18!
You can still take action NOW (see below)
POSTED: Nov 17 2015
Planned Parenthood’s radical “comprehensive sex ed” bill, S2048, which has outraged parents across the state, will be before the full Massachusetts Senate tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 18. There is a separate House version that has not been voted on yet.
Wednesday is the last day of “full formal” sessions of the Massachusetts Legislature until January, when it continues its 2-year session. Bills not passed this week – including the House version of this bill -- will still be active until December 31, 2016.
Push for radical “comprehensive sex education”
Making their version of “comprehensive sexuality education” mandatory in all Massachusetts schools has been a major goal of Planned Parenthood in every legislative session since at least 2006. In every session (so far), MassResistance and others have been able to successfully lobby to get the bill stopped in committee. But this year they are pushing extraordinarily hard.
A major part of that objective has been to mandate the use of the Department of Education’s odious “Comprehensive Health Curriculum Frameworks” document, written in 1999, which outlines objectives for teaching in grades K-12 about sexuality, broad homosexual issues, “family life”, mental health, birth control, abortion, and other controversial topics. Currently, the document is optional.
What this bill does
Planned Parenthood’s goal was clearly stated during their testimony at the June 3, 2015 public hearing. They want to require that any school in Massachusetts that offers sex education at all, would have no choice but to do the full Planned Parenthood approach. The school would not legally have the option of offering a lesser version of sex-ed that the parents might be more comfortable with.
The Senate bill, S2048, “An Act Relative to Healthy Youth” does some very disturbing things:
Amendments to bill being offered by Republican Senator
Sen. Bruce Tarr, (R-Gloucester) has offered several pro-family-oriented amendments to S2048. These will be taken up on Wednesday when the Senate debates the bill.
The amendments include:
Unfortunately, Republican amendments to Democrat-sponsored bills do not have a history of success in the State House. But we applaud Sen. Tarr for his efforts and hope for the best.
What you must do RIGHT NOW:
This bill needs to be stopped. Planned Parenthood knows exactly what it wants to do with your children. If they get this passed, they will move their sexual, homosexual, and pro-abortion agenda as deep as possible into the schools.
Bill 2048 will be taken up by the State Senate on 11:00 am on Wednesday morning. If possible, make calls before then.
Tell them: We don’t want Planned Parenthood’s radical agenda in our schools at all. At a minimum, it should be “opt-in” for parents. DO NOT pass S2048.
We will let you know what happens!
