With lightening speed, Planned Parenthood's alleged advocate, Sen. Lena Taylor, had her hopes and dreams fulfilled yesterday as the Senate passed the UN"Healthy Youth Act" with one amendment, then shot it to the Assembly for a rapid response and quick passage. The bill is now on its way to Governor Doyle's office. He is expected to place his rubber stamp of approval.

"Everyone" who has sex has an STD......says Dr. Vanessa Cullins

AB458/SB324 UN"Healthy Youth Act" to be voted on in Senate this Wednesday


The Senate Education Committee in Madison is scheduled to vote on the Planned Parenthood’s Sex Education Bill – Senate Bill 324/Assembly Bill 458, this Wednesday, January 27th at 9:30 AM. The driving force behind the bill is America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, which operates 3 of the 4 largest abortion clinics in Wisconsin.

For an indication of how Planned Parenthood intends to discuss sex with our children and their expectations for young people, please see their website at Currently, Planned Parenthood is paid by the state of Wisconsin taxpayers to give free contraceptives to all adolescents above the age of 14 (However, they do not turn away younger boys and girls). SB 324/AB 458 is the most significant change to Wisconsin sex education that we’ve had in a generation and the bills clearly promote that young people are expected to be sexually active. These bills do this in the following way:

1. Currently, school districts can teach abstinence-centered instruction. While SB 324/AB 458 discusses abstinence, it will bar abstinence-only instruction. This bill will not let school districts teach abstinence without teaching condom and contraceptive use. ( SB 324 page 3, lines 14-17)

2. Current law dictates that local school districts have committees, which include members of clergy, to decide what is included in their school district’s sex ed curriculum. This bill will require the curriculum be recommended by national liberal groups including the American Public Health Association, which has taken the extreme position of being in favor of partial birth abortion.

3.SB 324/AB 458 requires sex ed instruction to not have a bias regarding sexual orientation/homosexuality or having sex before marriage. Therefore, any instruction that says homosexuality or sex before marriage is considered morally wrong would not be allowed under SB 324/AB 458. Proponents of the bill have indicated this curriculum is appropriate for 6th and 7th graders. (SB 324 page 3, lines 23-25)

4. Although parents are able to opt their children out, the instruction will influence the next generation of Wisconsin students' morality and lower the expectations for early sexual activity.

For the current law on sex ed, see the following link: Wisconsin Law 118.019

1. Call Senate Education Committee members and ask them to oppose AB 458 and SB 324. Contact information is listed below.

The National Popular Vote Bill was circulated for co-sponsorship today.

This is a direct attack on our U.S. Constitution. Long story short it would change the way we elect our President. It would create a situation in which a President could be elected with only 20% of the voting population instead of the current 51% of the electoral college. If there are 20 candidates running for president the winner would only need a majority (which could be 20% or less depending on how the votes are split up) in order to win. The candidates would only need to focus on the high populous areas in order to win, creating a VERY slanted playing field. How would you like CA, FL and NY being the biggest players in deciding who our President would be? For more information and talking points, click here.

Contact your WI State Legislators immediately and tell them NOT to support the National Popular Vote Bill.

Day at the Capitol Huge Success

Yesterday's "Day at the Capitol" held by Eagle Forum was met with huge success and the attendance of over 65 Eagle Forum supporters, youth to seniors. The morning began with a teaching session by Sen. Grothman's staff that walked the group through the different stages of a bill and explained the importance of lobbying. Sen. Grothman, 20th Senate District, surprised the group with his arms full of Racine Danish Kringles, and welcomed questions and answers before heading off to a Senate Education Committee hearing.

The group attended the same hearing which encompassed two bills, one of which was AB25. You can read about this hearing by CLICKING HERE. This was followed by a tour of the Capitol and a delicious lunch prepared by Eagle Forum vice president, Joan Tatarsky, and other EF leaders and attendees.

The afternoon session of the "Day at the Capitol" began with two informational sessions. Eagle Forum of Washington County president, Ginny Maziarka, discussed AB458/SB324, the Healthy Youth Act (sex ed bill), while Eagle Forum of Wisconsin president, Dottie Feder, shared information concerning opting out of the governmental health care reform.

Representative Rich Zipperer, 98th Assembly District, spoke to the group and fielded a large number of questions that ranged from financial issues to personal insight for the next year.

The afternoon was wrapped up with time spent writing letters of opinion concerning specific bills in the legislature, then hand-delivering to offices within the Capitol.
