Wisconsin Sex Education Bill Now Law Thanks To Governor Doyle

February 24, 2010

Good news that promotes smarter and more healthy youth.  I am pleased that this bill was signed into law by Democratic Governor Jim Doyle as abstinence programs are outdated, and do not work.  They never did.

All Republicans voted against the bill when it passed the Assembly in November and the Senate last month. They said the bill infringed on local officials to set standards in their schools.

Democrats argued the abstinence-only program have caused high rates of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

Sex education courses will now have to include information about how to use condoms and other forms of birth control and describe their benefits and side effects. They will also have to tell students how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

    Jim Doyle claims to be a catholic man. I don’t think so Jim! Do we have a problem with teens having sex? Of course. But to create an enviornment of so called safe sex will definetely encourage the kids to have sex. We need to allow christianity back into the public square so we can have the children focus on the family again. Let’s face it, having sex according to God’s plan is a about procreation. We can’t give in to a pro-death agenda. We have to fight for these kids who don’t have the proper family structure in place at home and speak the truth to them about having sex. And just in case Jim doesn’t know, it’s in the bible he reads that fornicators have no place in the kingdom of God!

    Parents who have a good relationship with their children do not feel threatened with this. I have been grateful that mine have received the “science” end of it at school – this then lead to a discussion at home about the more personal “self-respect” portion. Years ago when I worked in an elementary school, only one parent removed their daughter from the 4th/5th grade human development study. I didn’t think much of it until a few years later when she got pregnant and became a single mom as a minor. It seems that life for young adults is hard enough without complicating it with unplanned parenthood.

    Governor Jim Doyle should keep his hands out of our kids sex lives. My kids will be removed from these classes. Jim Doyle is an idiot and so are all the liberal legislators who passed this bill.

    I see–so if you are going to teach sex ed, they want you to do it right? Well isn’t this piece of legislation a real eye opener!
