Pro abortion advocates Lena Taylor and Tamara Grigsby introduced legislation in Wisconsin AB-458 and SB-324 regarding many changes in the instruction of human growth and development in Wisconsin Schools.
This legislation would require that there not be any bias or any instruction against any sexual orientation or against sexually active pupils.
The legislation removes from the state statues the schools mission “to support and enhance the efforts of parents to provide moral guidance to their children”.
The legislation requires schools teach “the health benefits, side effects and proper use of contraceptives”.
While the course will still mention abstinence it will remove the requirement that the school “present abstinence from sexual activity as the preferred choice of behavior in relationship to all sexual activity for unmarried pupils”.
This legislation also will allow groups like Planned Parenthood to conduct the Human Growth and Development course in any given school district.
