Skip to comments.Major parents' rights bill in public hearing Tuesday (Massachusetts)

This Tuesday, September 20, the Joint Education Committee of the Massachusetts Legislature is holding a public hearing on critical bills regarding the sex-education agenda and homosexual agenda in the public schools.
The bills we are concerned with all aim to change two things that MassResistance accomplished several years ago:
1. In 1996 we wrote, lobbied and got passed the current Parental Notification Law (Ch 71, Sec. 32A) which is still state law. It allows parents to "opt-out" their kids on "human sexuality issues". At the time it seemed reasonably sufficient. But it's terribly out of date, the text allows for many unforeseen loopholes.
2. Before 1998, "health" (sex ed, homosexuality, etc.) was required by the Department of Education's as part of every school's curriculum. But in 1998 we worked with the State Board of Education, particularly Chairman John Silber, and got that requirement removed. The liberals were livid. It's currently optional. Now the sex-ed and homosexual lobby want to get it back by pushing it through the Legislature. They've files several bills to do that - and more.
The Planned Parenthood sex-ed and homosexual lobbies have filed several bills to force their brand of "comprehensive sexuality education" and homosexual programs even further into the public schools than they already are.
In the past three Legislative sessions the Planned Parenthood and homosexual lobby have attempted to push two basic goals into the state's school system. All three times they have been defeated by an outcry from parents generated largely by MassResistance. Now they're back for a fourth try, apparently stronger than ever.
The basic goals of these bills are:
Make sexuality/homosexuality education mandatory.
Force the radical Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum to be written into law as the official guide for teaching "health".

Why can’t they let kids be kids?
It will be very interesting how they turn out
with all this interference in their carefree kiddy days.
I was a happy- go- lucky kid until I was old enough to vote.
Will these kids have the same opportunity? I feel sorry for them.
