Skip to comments.Sex Ed for Kindergarteners 'Right Thing to Do,' Says Obama
Posted on 07/31/2008 4:21:28 PM PDT by Right_Wing_Madman
ABC News' Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is "age-appropriate," is "the right thing to do."
"I remember Alan Keyes . . . I remember him using this in his campaign against me," Obama said in reference to the conservative firebrand who ran against him for the U.S. Senate in 2004. Sex education for kindergarteners had become an issue in his race against Keyes because of Obamas work on the issue as chairman of the health committee in the Illinois state Senate.
"'Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergarteners,'" said Obama mimicking Keyes' distinctive style of speech. "Which -- I didnt know what to tell him (laughter)."
"But its the right thing to do," Obama continued, "to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools."

Great catch! Keep ‘em coming!
“sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is “age-appropriate,”
What, he’s going to allow showing them how to have it with stuffed animals?
Sex education in public schools is the wrong thing to do no matter what age the students are. It is not up to the state to educate our children on matters other the tradional subjects, such as math, history, english, civics(which they don’t want to teach). Sex education is for parents. We need to stop this BS immediately if not sooner.
“But its the right thing to do,” Obama continued, “to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools.”
*Right thing to do*....implies a moral philosophy. I wonder what *moral* philosophy provides the basis for Obama’s choices? I wonder why he would choose to leave a newborn infant to die....and attempt to pass legislation to that effect?
Does this mean that storks will start appearing at show and tell sessions?
Obama thinks the nation must all be like the south side of Chicago.
Well, this will lose him a whole bunch more voters!
Hmmm... There are so many things wrong with this I don’t even know where to begin.
Hurray for the wonderful public school system. 3 cheers for indoctrination!
The “age appropriate” amount of sex education for five years olds is zero, senator. But maybe the Big O would like to “refine” this position, too.
The only way kids there would know the difference between sexes is that the girls aren’t allowed in the boys restroom. That’s how they know they’re girls and not boys. Other than that they know no distinction ....
5-year olds, 10-year olds, 15-year olds, those not yet born make no difference to BHO, they are all tools of the morality of the liberal left.
Hey Barry, what does science say about when LIFE begins?
This is about pushing the sex positive agenda. Get them to accept that there are no moral judgements to be made over any pairings regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s).
It is about subverting the culture and overriding the morals of the parents “what your parents say is ‘wrong’”.
But they have to read about Heather’s two mommies. So that they can accept the “normalcy” of this as they grow up.
Alan Keyes is so much better than Obama on every issue.
Sounds as though the guy with the Muslim sounding name is planning on get a little of the “young stuff” once he gets elected.
It’d be very hard to find ANY candidate at any point who is worse on all issues than Obama.
