WI Assembly Passes “Promiscuity for Youth” Bill

Last evening the Wisconsin Assembly passed AB-458.  The vote was rather partisan with every Democrat but one (Rep. Ziegelbauer) voting in favor of  the legislation to forbid schools which have Human Growth and Development to have an abstinence only education.  Every Republican voted against AB-458.  The legislation also opens the door for Planned Parenthood to teach the curriculum.  The measure now moves to the Wisconsin State Senate which will likely take up the issue in 2010 when their floor period resumes.
