Iowa Bill Sexualizes Christian School Students

Sexual revolutionaries in the Iowa House of Representatives are pushing legislation that would require all schools, public and private, to drop abstinence-only education in favor of "comprehensive sex education beginning in kindergarten."

A bill introduced in the Iowa House would expand what’s required to be taught in schools to include “age-appropriate”, comprehensive sex education beginning in kindergarten. The legislation is being pushed by Mary Mascher, a Democrat from Iowa City, who is a longtime educator.

She says kids need more information than they get in schools where abstinence only is taught.
