Early Childhood Sex Training Bill Needs to be Defeated

In other legislative news...As predicted in this post, Early Childhood Sex Training is coming Washington if people don't call their legislators and tell them to keep this garbage out of our schools.

Call your legislators and tell them to STRONGLY OPPOSE HB 1855 & SB 5297 - SEX EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS -- 1 (800) 562-6000 or on the web.

Here's the link to Planned Parenthood of Southwest Oregon's "comprehensive sex education" web site for a taste of what our children would be forced to learn if this gets through the legislature.

You can also Google Planned Parenthood's "Teen Wire" site if you really want the hard truth on what's behind these bills.

Home SCHOOL!!!! I tell ya, if one thinks that their child/ren will be educated in the public schools, or even the private schools in the US, they are sadly mistaken.

Home schoolers have a lot of social skills - they have more time to socialize as their work is done in two to three hours - and they are highly regarded by college and universities as well as employers. They have one on one teaching, or perhaps one on nine teaching and they can follow their interests as well as develop learning styles that are not all cookie cutter.

Send our child/ren to a school that takes away parental rights in teaching? Not on your life -

Have our child/ren taught by planned deathhood? Not on your life -

Home SCHOOL!!!

Here is some text from the substitute House bill:

"Abstinence may not be taught to the exclusion of other materials and instruction on contraceptives and disease prevention."

"Any parent or legal guardian who wishes to have his or her child excused from any planned instruction in sexual health education may do so upon filing a written request with the school district board of directors or its designee."

A written request only! This is YOUR child and you can only protect them with a formal request in writing.

"In addition, any parent or legal guardian may review the sexual health education curriculum offered in his or her child's school by filing a written request with the school district board of directors, etc..."

No 'please could I see what you're teaching my children'!

Glad to see that one of my reps, Brian Sullivan, is NOT cosponsoring the bill. Mary Helen Roberts, who hung up the phone on me, is a cosponsor.

There will soon be a chance for folks living in the 21st district to discuss this bill w/ their reps:

"OLYMPIA – State legislators for the 21st District will field questions and concerns from area residents Feb. 18 at town hall meetings in Edmonds and Mukilteo.

Sen. Paull Shin, D-Edmonds, and Reps. Brian Sullivan, D-Mukilteo, and Mary Helen Roberts, D-Edmonds, will discuss Paine Field, aerospace development, the Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL), sex offenders and other public safety issues, and other topics of concern to constituents.

The meetings are scheduled for:
10 a.m. at Edmonds Woodway High School, 7600 212th St. S.W., in Edmonds
1 p.m. at Harbour Pointe Middle School, 5000 Harbour Pointe Blvd., in Mukilteo"

The basic idea is that they want to own our kids. Rather than the school getting our permission to teach what they are going to teach, we have to get THEIR permission and kneel at their feet. It terrible. I do think home schooling is the best solution. Who knows how long it is before they ban that!

"Who knows how long it is before they ban that!" - well, it will be a long time IF good people do not stand by and do nothing. It will be in short order if good people stand back and let the government take more control than they already have.

There are many wonderfully home educated young men and women out in the world and the numbers are growing. They are the future of our country. I doubt they will be silent (hurray!)

I am reading a book right now - Public Education Against America, the Hidden Agenda, by Marlin Maddoux (rip). If that book does not make you decide to pull your children out of school and educate them, then nothing will.

I am fortunate, I am able to stay home with our sons, but even if I had to work outside the home, I would still home educate.

I was told that I had to get permission to go into a classroom where my fourth grade son spent hours upon hours. I was told it was in the 'contract.' I didn't sign no stinkin' contract! Ah, yes, but the stinkin' NEA did!

Wake Up America - our children are our future.
