    The ad might be a bit misleading but I don't like to give teachers any more power over discussing sex of any kind with my kid.

    Here is the bill, from the Illinois General Assemblyís website:

    Full Text of SB0099

    093_SB0099 LRB093 05269 NHT 05359 b

    AN ACT concerning education.

    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly:

    Section 5. The School Code is amended by changing Sections 27-9.1 and 27-9.2 as follows:

    (105 ILCS 5/27-9.1) (from Ch. 122, par. 27-9.1) Sec. 27-9.1. Sex Education.

    (a) No pupil shall be required to take or participate in any class or course in comprehensive sex education if the pupilís his parent or guardian submits written objection thereto, and refusal to take or participate in such course or program shall not be reason for suspension or expulsion of such pupil. Each class or course in comprehensive sex education offered in any of grades K 6 through 12 shall include instruction on the prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including the prevention, transmission and spread of HIV AIDS. Nothing in this Section prohibits instruction in sanitation, hygiene or traditional courses in biology. (b) All public elementary, junior high, and senior high school classes that teach sex education and discuss sexual activity or behavior intercourse shall emphasize that abstinence is an effective method of preventing unintended is the expected norm in that abstinence from sexual intercourse is the only protection that is 100% effective against unwanted teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and HIV acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) when transmitted sexually.

    Note that the crossed out language was dropped from the bill and the underlined words were added.

    So this bill specifically amended the school code to change sex education from including sixth grade through twelfth grade ó to including kindergartners.

    (The other emendations are pretty telling, too.)

    So, no, Mr. Obama has no grounds for complaint.

    Though we sure do.

    If your dem buddies were more interested in victims than they are in making new victims - they would lock these SOB's up and never EVER let them see the light of day again. THAT's how you protect kids from predators. Not sex ed.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
