Here’s the ad that has Obama defenders crying foul:
It’s all true. Fact Check.org needs to do a little more fact checking. They could start by going to John McCain’s website which provides a link to the PDF of the sex ed program the Obama campaign sent to MSNBC when asked about this issue last year.:
The SEICUS Guidelines For Children Between The Ages Of 5 And 8: http://www.siecus.org/_data/global/images/guidelines.pdf
Amy Proctor did a lot of work transcribing the content from the PDF to her site so I don’t want to grab too much, but here is a small part of what was being considered appropriate for 5 – 8 year olds, (level 1):
Topic 3: Reproduction
- Men and women have reproductive organs that enable them to have a child.
- Men and women have specific cells in their bodies (sperm cells and egg cells) that enable them to reproduce.
- Reproduction requires that a sperm and egg join.
- Vaginal intercourse – when a penis is placed inside a vagina – is the most common way for a sperm and egg to join.
- When a woman is pregnant, the fetus grows inside her body in her uterus.
- A woman can be pregnant with more than one fetus at a time.
- Babies usually come out of a woman’s body through an opening called a vagina.
- Some babies are born by an operation called a Caesarian Section.
- A woman’s breasts can provide milk for a baby.
- Not all men and women have children.
- People who cannot have children may choose to adopt.
Topic 1: Sexuality Throughout Life
- Most children are curious about their bodies.
- Bodies can feel good when touched.
Topic 2: Masturbation
- Touching and rubbing one’s own genitals to feel good is called masturbation.
- Some boys and girls masturbate and others do not.
- Masturbation should be done in a private place.
So much more than “Good touch, bad touch”, as Obama has been claiming.
There’s more at Amy Proctor’s. She says the curriculum gets even worse for the older grades.
Here’s Obama bragging about his vote in front of Planned Parenthood, mocking his former rival Alan Keyes, July 17, 2007:
“It’s the right thing to do”.
Yes, it’s true that parents were given the option to have their children pulled from class, but many parents are fairly trusting of the schools, and yes, the bill from the IL General Assembly, includes the caveat that an “age appropriate” curriculum would be imposed.
Apparently, many people find the above curriculum “age appropriate” for kindergarteners.
Luckily, the bill was killed in the IL Senate.
