Massresistance Update Public hearing on David Parker Parents Rights bill this Tuesday Oct. 13 at MA State House! [NOTE: The public hearing before the Education Committee on these bills is Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 1:00 pm in Room A1 as the State House. Please contact us if you can come and testify!]
Massachusetts is the country's "ground zero" of homosexual activism targeting public school children. The first "gay straight alliance" clubs in schools were here. Homosexual activist Kevin Jennings (now working in Obama's Dept. of Education) started teaching and founded GLSEN here. The infamous "fistgate" conference was here. The "Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century" was handed out to kids here. The Youth Pride parade and GLBT prom take place every May in Boston.
Massachusetts schools have more "gay clubs" and more gay/transgender assemblies, programs, and activities than any other state. Our Legislature has budgeted more taxpayer dollars for homosexual activism than all 49 other states combined, according to estimates.
The state-funded "Commission on Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Youth" consists of radical homosexual and transgender adult activists (including men in dresses and women with beards) who go into schools, use taxpayer money to set up programs, counsel schoolchildren unsupervised, and run Youth Pride Day with kids from across the state.
Planned Parenthood's radical bill on compulsory sex-ed, abortion counseling, homosexuality in schools also being heard that day! Planned Parenthood's compulsory sex-ed bill is also being heard that day. It's back again!
In 2005, Planned Parenthood published a 5-year plan that included the goal of passing a "comprehensive sex education" law that would mandate their sex education / abortion / homosexuality approach in the public schools.
Their vehicle for doing this was to the "Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum Frameworks", an extremely radical document which was written in 1999 as an "optional guide" for schools. Their plan is to pass a law making this document mandatory to all schools. Among the topics it would require for kids: homosexual "identity", abortion counseling, and gender issues. It would be used as a requirement for passing to higher grades and even graduation.
In 2005 they introduced it as bill H1641 which was pretty blunt about what it wanted to do. We rallied hundreds of parents and it got stopped in committee.
In 2007 they re-introduced it as H597, with softer language but the same basic effect. We rallied hundreds of people and got it stopped in committee then, also.
This year they've re-introduced it again as H3434, with an identical Senate version introduced as H218. Again, it's couched in soft language but it basically does two things: (1) mandates "health education" as a required course [NOTE: MassResistance got it removed as "required" back in the 1990s by intense lobbying the State Board of Education.] and (2) mandates the Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum Frameworks as the official guide that schools must use.
Rep. Mary Grant has introduced a corollary bill, H402, that sneaks "health" and "emotional development" into the list of required topics in schools, which fits into their general scheme.
All three of these bills must be stopped:
Bill H3434 Sponsored by: Rep. Alice Wolf (D-Cambridge) Bill S218 Sponsored by: Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester) (Both of these are the same bill -- the main Planned Parenthood bill -- but introduced separately in each branch.)
Bill H402 Presented by: Rep. Mary Grant (D-Beverly) A corrolary bill to require "health" and "emotional development" be required topics in schools.
As usual, Planned Parenthood is pouring enormous resources into this and has a large number of sponsors. They are teaming up with the homosexual lobby and are putting some big muscle to get this passed. This will NOT be easy, but it must be stopped again.
We'll be needing everyone's help to stop this again! Please submit your testimony to the Committee!
