SPRINGFIELD - "Comprehensive sex ed" is a term that is circulating around the Illinois Capitol these days, and normal, self-respecting adults - like those that work and are elected to serve the Illinois public - may have difficulty understanding what that really means.
Indeed, those Illinois lawmakers that voted last week to move Illinois sex education away from the "birds and bees" to more "medically-accurate" and "age-appropriate" taxpayer-funded sex information may be shocked to learn exactly what those terms mean in the context of 21st century sex education. Maybe State Rep Kay Hatcher (R-) who normally votes fairly conservative wasn't fully aware of what she was advocating when she stood on the House floor and said Illinois' sex education should be updated from its last update in the 1980s.
In the 1980s, Illinois promoted abstinence first. It gave public school high schoolers basic anatomical information and then gave them reason after reason to wait until marriage to experiment with sex and encouraged them to pursue education, sports and other extra-curricular activities rather than sex. But Planned Parenthood and the sex-obsessed culture mocked and ridiculed that "marriage first" sex ed, and experimentation took over. Planned Parenthood became a billion dollar industry marketing contraceptives, HIV testing, sex information and abortion.
The sex education "update" that Rep. Hatcher was advocating Illinois may turn our readers' cheeks pink - and we're fairly certain that when they see what Planned Parenthood is doing around the nation under the guise of "medically accurate" and "age appropriate," at least some of those that voted for "comprehensive sex education" programs in Illinois may hang their red faces in shame.
Here's the truth about what Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and other "liberated" organizations are advocating taxpayers fund. It pains and embarrasses us to have to share with Illinois Review readers, but this is what the Illinois Senate may very well approve and pass on to Governor Quinn under the guise of "updated" sex ed.
Call us prudes, but we suggest you do not allow your children to watch this video produced by American Life League because, well, what Illinois children will be learning if HB 2675 is passed would be considered pornograhic, illicit and contributing to the deliquency of a minor in any other circumstance. God's gift of sex perverted and demeaned and used as a gateway drug to creating a generation of depressed, distressed and obsessed sex addicts.
HB 2675 House sponsors were Rep. Camille Y. Lilly - Robyn Gabel - Elaine Nekritz - Naomi D. Jakobsson - Sara Feigenholtz, Laura Fine, Marcus C. Evans, Jr., Elgie R. Sims, Jr., Cynthia Soto, Emanuel Chris Welch, Kelly M. Cassidy,Christian L Mitchell, Deborah Mell, Barbara Flynn Currie, Maria Antonia Berrios, William Davis, Lou Lang, Thaddeus Jones, Ann Williams, Deborah Conroy, Jehan A. Gordon-Booth, Carol A. Sente, Linda Chapa LaVia, Keith Farnham, Scott Drury, Esther Golar, Mike Smiddy, Elizabeth Hernandez and Kenneth Dunkin.
Only two Republicans - Minority Leader Tom Cross and Rep. Kay Hatcher supported HB 2675. Cross was endorsed by Planned Parenthood in the 2012 elections, and Planned Parenthood withheld endorsing in the 50th House District because Rep. Hatcher was unopposed.
HB 2675 is assigned to be heard in the Senate Executive Committee and Senate Sponsors are (Sen. Heather A. Steans - Linda Holmes, Emil Jones, III, Melinda Bush, Steven M. Landek, Iris Y. Martinez, Daniel Biss and Toi W. Hutchinson). A majority of the Illinois Senate Democrats' super-majority has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and they're likely to be calling in their campaign chits with HB 2675.
HB 2675 will leave taxpayers footing the bill - for the comprehensive sex education HB 2675 will unleash, for the health care - both physical and mental - the taxpayer-funded "education" will unleash as curious children experiment with their friends and family members, for the judiciary and criminal activity resulting from this perversion will cultivate, and for the destroyed lives in its wake.
