When you hear the term “comprehensive” as a way to describe legislation, you can be sure the government has big plans to invade a new corner of your life. “Comprehensive sex education” for public schools is no exception. That’s why it’s critical HB 2675 be stopped!
HB 2675 would mandate that highly objectionable sex ed material be forced on our public schools and into the impressionable minds of our children. HB 2675 has already passed in the Illinois House and has moved to the Illinois Senate. Lawmakers must fully understand the type of curriculum this bill would mandate.
And we need your help to inform them and to safeguard children’s innocent minds!
For an good exposé of what our children are being taught and the rationale behind these types of curricula, which often come from organizations like Planned Parenthood, watch this video from American Life League:
**WARNING: the content of this video is not suitable for children.**
We know for certainty that one of the books mentioned in the video, It’s Perfectly Normal, is being used in Illinois schools. It’s Perfectly Normal is written with 10-yr-old children in mind. If the “comprehensive” sex education bill, HB 2675, is passed, it will establish a one-size-fits-all approach to sex education and remove local community control over choosing true “age- appropriate” curriculum, another term used in the bill. (See what the national organization for “comprehensive” sex ed curricula, SEICUS, deems as “age-appropriate.”)
If HB 2675 is passed, young children will be exposed to graphic sexual information to which most parents would find highly objectionable and inappropriate. And teaching books like It’s Perfectly Normal will become more prevalent state-wide.
According to HB 2675, children as young as eleven years old would be required to define sexual orientation using the so-called ‘correct’ terminology, such as ‘heterosexual, gay, and lesbian.’ Masturbation would be taught as normal and that everyone does it, with step-by-step instruction. Not just the biology of sexual reproduction would be presented, but explicit details of sexual intercourse. Slightly older children would be ‘educated’ on how to use condoms, obtain contraceptives or even an abortion without parental consent or knowledge, and would be encouraged to experiment with ‘alternative’ sexual behaviors.
This bill has already passed the Illinois House and is now being considered by the entire Senate. Please join us in trying to stop this bill! This sensitive topic should be controlled by parents and teachers, not groups who are in the business of selling sex to make a profit.
