Here is a copy of the Bill. The part in question is the K-12.
105 ILCS 5/27-9.1) (from Ch. 122, par. 27-9.1)
7 Sec. 27-9.1. Sex Education.
8 (a) No pupil shall be required to take or participate in
9 any class or course in comprehensive sex education if the
10 pupil’s his parent or guardian submits written objection
11 thereto, and refusal to take or participate in such course or
12 program shall not be reason for suspension or expulsion of
13 such pupil. Each class or course in comprehensive sex
14 education offered in any of grades K 6 through 12 shall
15 include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted
16 infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread
17 of HIV AIDS. Nothing in this Section prohibits instruction in
18 sanitation, hygiene or traditional courses in biology.
Ok, so let me ask, just how do you teach a five year old about AIDS. Or transmittable infections, unless you teach sex. To teach any five year old sex, is just wrong. Thankfully, this bill did not pass, but the attempt was there, by Obama. He did not sponcer it, but did vote for this bill.
I have always considered myself a liberal, but this election season, nothing surprises me anymore. I have a granddaughter who started kindergarten this year. The very thought of this kind of legislation, makes me sick. How anyone could think this is ok is beyond me. The Obama campaign would like everyone to think it is not true, but here is the bill, read it for yourself and decide.
