Planned Parenthood-backed leftists at the State House, led by Representative Jim O’Day, (D-West Boylston) and Senator Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) are boasting that they may finally be able to pass the radical, pornographic Sex Ed Mandate bill, HB544/SB268, titled An Act Relative to Healthy Youth.
They may be right!
That’s why your legislators must hear from you right away. Click here to send your legislator an email or make a phone call to ask them to oppose HB544/SB268, the Sex Ed Mandate bill.
Rep. O’Day has been doing Planned Parenthood’s bidding for ten years in his attempt to get this legislation passed. The election of pro-abortion Governor Healey has raised his hopes for passage.
During the past two legislative cycles, the State Senate has passed the Sex Ed Mandate, but it has always stalled in the House of Representatives.
Rep. O’Day recently projected in an article from the State House News, that since we now have a governor who likely won’t veto the bill, he only needs 81 votes to pass it.
If passed, the legislation in HB544/SB268 would allow the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to mandate a controversial sex education framework for public schools across the state.
Currently, local schools can decide for themselves what and when to teach the children in their community about sex, based on the unique needs of their student populations and the desires of their parents. This bill would eliminate that control.
Most concerning, the curriculum already approved by DESE would expose children to graphic content such as how to engage in high-risk sexual activities like anal and oral sex. It would also teach young girls how to get an abortion without parental knowledge or consent.
Visit the sex ed page of our website to learn more about the kind of sex ed content that would be mandated.
We expect a hearing to be called shortly. After the hearing, the Sex Ed Mandate could be brought for a vote at any time.
