RE: Barack Obama And Sex Education
DATE: September 13, 2008
In recent days, questions have arisen concerning Barack Obama's support for sex education for Kindergarteners. This is a true statement that the Obama campaign has never disputed. Not only did Barack Obama vote for a sex education bill in the Illinois State Legislature, but four years later, he said again that he supported sex education for Kindergarteners. This is a record that establishes his clear support for expanding sex education to Kindergarteners.
Please find the facts below:
* In the Illinois State Legislature, Barack Obama voted for legislation to alter Illinois' Sex Education standards to include instruction in any grade from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The legislation passed Barack Obama's Illinois Senate Health and Human Services Committee that he chaired. As the Chicago Daily Herald stated, "the legislation included a provision to allow students from kindergarten through fifth grade to be added to the middle and high school students receiving sex education."
* Despite the Obama campaign's claims, this bill was intended to provide children as young as Kindergarten with sex education. According to the legislation itself, "Each class or course in comprehensive sex education offered in any of grades K through 12 shall include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread of HIV." This legislation stated expressly that children in grade 12 were to be education about sexually transmitted diseases.
* In 2007, Barack Obama told Planned Parenthood that he supported sex education for Kindergarteners as long as it was "age-appropriate." Thus on two separate occasions we have Barack Obama supporting the expansion of sex education to Kindergarteners.
* Defending Barack Obama's statement, the Obama campaign cited far-reaching SIECUS curriculum as the model. The SIECUS curriculum goes far beyond appropriate touching. The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) supports a comprehensive approach to sex education, beginning as early as ages 5-8. For Level 1 sex education (ages 5 through 8), the guidelines include much more than appropriate touching. The curriculum includes lines that are not appropriate for us to state here but please see the link to the guidelines here: http://www.siecus.org/_data/global/images/guidelines.pdf. This is the model provided by the Obama campaign and no one else. Continue reading...
Although the McCain-Palin camp won't state the guidelines for Level 1 sex education (ages 5 through 8) I have no such hesitation. Voters need to know what Barack Obama stands for and supports. Here is a sample of the SIECUS curriculum - passed in the Illinois Senate and recommended by a committee chaired by Obama). Some of the rest of it is too sick to even put up on a blog.
Level 1; Developmental Messages:
• Each body part has a correct name and a specific function.Do read the rest if you have the stomach for it. While some of it is acceptable for a child, age 5-8, there is much that isn't.
• A person's genitals, reproductive organs, and genes determine whether the person is male or female.
• A boy/man has nipples, a penis, a scrotum, and testicles.
• A girl/woman has breasts, nipples, a vulva, a clitoris, a vagina, a uterus, and ovaries.
• Some sexual or reproductive organs, such as penises and vulvas, are external or on the outside of the body while others, such as ovaries and testicles, are internal or inside the body.
• Both boys and girls have body parts that feel good when touched.
• Bodies change as children grow older.
• Puberty is a time of physical and emotional change that happens as children become teenagers.
• People are able to have children only after they have reached puberty.
• Human beings can love people of the same gender and people of another gender.
• Some people are heterosexual, which means they can be attracted to and fall in love with someone
of another gender.
• Some people are homosexual, which means they can be attracted to and fall in love with someone
of the same gender.
• Homosexual men and women are also known as gay men and lesbians.
• People deserve respect regardless of who they are attracted to.
• Making fun of people by calling them gay (e.g. "homo," "fag," "queer") is disrespectful and hurtful.
Barack Obama is lying, once again, believing that American voters are stupid.
