Nevada Bill Would Have Schools Promote Abortion, Sex-Ed to Kids

A hearing for the radical, explicit K-12 statewide abortion promoting sexual education bill is this Monday May 6th.
After passing the Nevada Assembly on a straight party line vote in which all Democrats voted for and all Republicans voted against it, a Senate Education Committee hearing for AB230-the radical, explicit, statewide K-12 abortion promoting sexual education bill is this Monday May 6 at 3:30. Pro-life groups do not normally involve themselves in sexual education issues except when abortion is involved. Unless abortion is excluded from this bill, it will allow those teaching sex education in NV schools to provide identification of abortion counseling and how and where to get an abortion.
The text of the bill says that ”
“(h) The identification and explanation of available counseling and legal and medical information concerning health services, including, without limitation…” (Section 1.1 (h)).
Previously we were concerned about the term “reproductive health services.” The word “reproductive” has been dropped, but the remaining words “concerning health services, including, without limitation…” still leave the door wide open for abortion. Unless the bill is amended to exclude abortion, this bill will allow those teaching sex education to provide identification of abortion counseling and how and where to get an abortion.
Here is further commentary and contact and action information on this bill from our colleague Nevada Families for Freedom founder Janine Hansen. Please let our legislators know that you oppose AB230. Email addresses are below.

AB230: Planned Parenthood Sex Ed Advocacy Program
Takes Away Rights of Parents and Local Communities
We desperately need people to attend the hearing and oppose this bill. Please arrive early so you can get a seat.
HEARING: Monday, May 6, 3:30pm,Senate Education Committee Rm 2149 Videoconferenced to Room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV.
MESSAGE:Vote NO on AB230 Planned Parenthood’s Sex Education Advocacy Program. This bill takes away the authority of the local committees and parents and places Planned Parenthood’s Agenda in the State Law. It creates a bonanza for Planned Parenthood placing them into the classroom to mine our schools for new clients. Nevada’s schools already have sex education programs that have been designed by local parents and communities to meet the needs of their county. Planned Parenthood’s so called “comprehensive” explicit sex education includes the promotion of abortion, contraception and homosexuality. It relegates abstinence to an afterthought. It takes away the presumption of parental rights by making it an “opt out” instead of “opt in” program. It makes available counseling for health services including abortion and contraception, without parental knowledge or consent. (You may want to write your own message.)
