Gov. Doyle signs Sex Ed Bill into law TODAY - Grothman blasts DOYLE

Grothman Blasts Governor Doyle for Signing Bill to Sexualize Wisconsin’s Minor Children

Planned Parenthood Stands to Profit

Madison: Today, Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) blasted Governor Doyle for signing Planned Parenthood’s Sex Ed Bill, Assembly Bill 458, into law.

“I would think the vast majority of Wisconsin parents would not approve of their children’s friends being sexually active in middle school,” said Grothman.

“Sadly, Governor Doyle today signed a bill requiring Wisconsin’s school districts to teach sex education without showing any bias toward sexually active pupils,” said Grothman. “While this non-judgmentalism may be typical of Planned Parenthood which currently supplies contraceptives to 15 year old girls and boys without their parents’ knowledge or consent, it is scandalous to impose their libertine values on other people’s youth.”

The bill also continues the recent trend to centralize local K-12 school curriculums. “Parents must re-double their efforts to monitor what their children are taught in the government schools as the government attack on religious values continues,” advised Grothman. “State law permits parents to opt their children out of offensive classes and local citizens to serve on their school’s Advisory Committees.”

Grothman did get a minor victory by amending the bill to force local school districts to instruct students about the criminal consequences of early sexual activity. Planned Parenthood had tried to keep local school districts from informing Wisconsin’s children that it is a felony to have sex with someone under the age of 16.
