The bill was introduced by State Rep. Lisa Willner, (D) Louisville. It has 13 sponsors. Willner said to WLWT:

“The bill is as much about social, emotional and mental health education as it is about sex ed, and would focus on healthy relationships, consent, critical thinking, responsible decision-making and acceptance of differences. With Kentucky among the worst states for unintended adolescent pregnancies, teen dating violence and teen sexual assault, and with bullying a growing concern, the need for this bill is clear.” Read more.

DETAILS OF KENTUCKY’S PROPOSED K-12 SEX ED LAW: 

  • The bill would protect children beginning in kindergarten in their “gender expression”and “gender identity.”
  • The bill would require a sex ed  curriculum that is “Inclusive,” and “ensures that students from historically marginalized communities see themselves reflected in classroom materials.”
  • The bill would require sex ed to go beyond anatomy and biology, “clarifying values and attitudes.”
  • The bill would require that children be given “Information about local health services where students can obtain additional information and services related to sexual and reproductive health and other related care” – i.e., Planned Parenthood (see below).
  • A parent would be permitted to request that their child opt out, however “a school is encouraged to provide that student an alternate assignment on a related topic during the instructional time.”

The first measure the organization is behind is yet to be filed legislation that would require comprehensive sexual education in all public schools.

Louisville Democrat Lisa Willner plans to sponsor the legislation and believes it’s something that can gain bipartisanship.

Willner said:

“Comprehensive sex-ed is truly the most pro-life legislation we could propose, it ought to have strong bipartisan support and we already know it has very strong public support. I want to be really clear what comprehensive sexual education is, medically accurate, age-appropriate, inclusive sex ed is not just about sex. Comprehensive sex ed provides social and emotional tools for safe and healthy relationships.”

Another piece of legislation the organization is pushing is allowing women to obtain up to 12 months of birth control at a time. Rep. Chris Harris, D-Forest Hills, proposed similar legislation two years ago but it did not pass. 19 other states allow a year prescription of birth control.

Tamarra Weider, the public affairs and policy director for PPAIK, believes both of these measures could pass with support from pro-life lawmakers … Read more.
