It raises an alarm over the Minnesota House of Representatives having just passed the Omnibus Education Finance bill (HF2400), which includes a Comprehensive Sex Ed Mandate.
The Planned Parenthood CSE mandate now moves on to the Senate, still tucked into the mammoth omnibus bill that funds every state education program for two years. A conference committee with the Senate in the coming days will determine the final content that will head to the Governor for his signature.
If the Planned Parenthood designed Sex Ed curriculum becomes required by law, all public schools in Minnesota will create a hostile environment for children of Catholics, Christians, and people of Faith.
Democrats Pass Comprehensive Sex Ed Mandate
Buried deep within the Omnibus Education Finance bill (HF2400) is a two-page mandate requiring a "Sexual Health Education" curriculum, aka Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE). The language in the bill mandates CSE must be taught in every Minnesota public and charter school beginning as young as kindergarten.
The news that this mandate is the work of Planned Parenthood came as a shock to many. Republican representatives revealed this ugly truth behind CSE and the graphic content of the curriculum on the House floor. No democrat argued against it.
Not only is PP the creator of CSE, they actively promote it, endorse books and curriculum that teach it, provide CSE training in schools wherever they’re allowed in, and lobby for it at legislatures and school districts across the nation. Children as young as kindergarten are taught that gender is "assigned at birth." CSE 4th grade "age appropriate" materials are so graphic and morally reprehensible, even the adults won't read them aloud.
The CSE mandate forces dangerous, gender-confused ideology on all K-12 schools. It promotes abortion ("bodily autonomy"), explicit and graphic sexual activities and step-by-step instructions on how to engage in vaginal, oral and anal sex with never a hint of disapproval or caution. The mandate throws in deliberately misleading cover language. It simultaneously requires teaching diverse sexual identities and orientations and how to "consent" to sexual activity, while requiring programs to "respect community values" and "encourage communication with parents." This legislation does neither! Hyper-sexualizing young children, teaching them how to consent and that their sexual pleasure is their human right are not community values.
Conveniently for PP and gender activist groups, the law also allows schools to bring outside "community organizations" with the "necessary content expertise" into the classroom to teach. PP brags on their website that they are "the largest provider of comprehensive sex education in Minnesota."
Senators take note. This CSE mandate is a wake-up call. Until that House vote came in, the very idea that lawmakers would force Planned Parenthood and its ideology on children was inconceivable.
Now it's not.
The history of comprehensive sexuality education is well documented in this Child Protection League video.
People all across MN have been alerted to the fact that Planned Parenthood intends to replace the role of parents and expose their children to sexual content they are unable to process and far too young to understand.
URGENT ACTION IS NEEDED!
If as few as TWO Republican Senators join with Democrat Senators, they could ADD the CSE Mandate to the Senate Omnibus Education Bill.
Since the Senate Education Omnibus bill (also now called HF2400) has been through all committees, it will be scheduled to be debated and passed on the Senate floor at any time.
From there it will go to a conference committee.

• You strongly oppose Planned Parenthood's Comprehensive Sex Education mandate in the House Education Omnibus bill.
• Vote NO on any amendment that would add the mandate into the Senate bill.
• Planned Parenthood K-12 Comprehensive Sex Education mandate is not simply the biology of reproduction. It is graphic and explicit sexualization of children.
• The CSE mandate requires every school to teach gender confusion to children from kindergarten and up.
• The CSE mandate requires promoting abortion as "bodily autonomy."
• The mandate violates local control of education curriculum.
Thank you! The time is very short!
