Sex Ed in MA

MFI believes that the best place for youth to learn about sex is in the home, within the context of a loving and trusting parent-child relationship. Parents are the primary teachers of their children and as such, they are uniquely qualified to provide the moral framework needed for healthy sex education. In our hyper-sexualized culture, students receive many negative messages about sex. Meaningful conversations with parents are the most effective way to counteract these destructive messages and to equip and empower young people to remain abstinent until marriage.

We do acknowledge that not every student has the support they need at home and some students might benefit from biologically based sex education in school. Research has shown that Sexual Risk Avoidance programs produce the best outcomes by encouraging youth to avoid risky behaviors that lead to emotional, physical, and spiritual harm. SRA programs emphasize developing healthy relationships and delaying sexual activity until marriage, communicating the clear message that sexual delay is the only 100% effective way to avoid pregnancy, STIs and other negative consequences of teen sex.

Unfortunately, instead of implementing a healthy SRA approach to sex ed in our public schools, our state legislature, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), Planned Parenthood, and others are pushing to mandate a much different approach to sex ed through the use of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curriculum. CSE is a specific type of graphic sexuality education that promotes sexual rights for children and serves as a how-to manual, encouraging teens to become sexually active. In fact, nearly 1 in 4 teens who receive this type of sex ed say that it makes them feel like having sex is an expectation. Equally concerning is that CSE is designed to change the sexual and gender norms of society by promoting diverse sexualities and perpetuating the dangerous transgender trend affecting our youth.

Currently in the Commonwealth, teaching sex ed is at the discretion of local school districts and those that do choose to teach it have full control over what curriculum they use. If our legislators and Planned Parenthood have their way though, local control will be taken away and put into the hands of bureaucrats. The Sex-Ed Mandate, SB 2459 and HB 410, give full authority to DESE to dictate the use of only CSE curriculum for those districts who decide to include sex ed in their health lessons. The MA State Senate passed this legislation with a 33-2 vote on January 16, 2020. The House version of the bill has not yet been brought for a vote.

In an effort to mobilize a grassroots movement of parents and concerned citizens to sound the alarm about the implementation of CSE in our schools and to push back against the loss of local control over educational decisions, the Massachusetts Informed Parents (MIP) initiative was launched in the fall of 2019 as an outreach of MFI. MIP endeavors to equip parents to protect their kids through the sharing of relevant information, including articles, research, and exhibits from the curriculum, and by providing tools and strategies for helping parents to effect change in their local communities. MIP is growing a large coalition of parents and faith and community leaders by leveraging the power of social media and by fostering one on one relationships through parent forums being held across the state. To stay informed on issues related to sex education and for updates on the Sex-Ed Mandate legislation, join the MIP group on FB. Contact Mary Ellen Siegler if you would like to schedule a parent forum for your church or community group.

Think proponents of graphic Comprehensive Sexuality Education have been deterred by virtual education, think again. AfY is a leading producer of CSE and works very closely with Planned Parenthood, AMAZE, SIECUS, and other groups who are pushing unhealthy and explicit sexual content on kids under the guise of "education." All of these organizations are in MA schools.

AMAZE is hosting a free virtual conference for educators. Is your child’s teacher participating? Find out!

Search prior posts for Advocates for Youth, Planned Parenthood, Amaze, and SIECUS to learn more about these groups or take a look at the Harm Analysis document found in the files section for AfY’s Rights, Respect, and Responsibility curriculum to see the kind of extreme content that is included in CSE.

‼️ 🔥 Attention Parents – Beware of Planned Parenthood and Social Emotional Learning 🔥 ‼️

Planned Parenthood gains access to students in MA schools in multiple ways, through their Comprehensive Sexuality Education curriculum taught in about 150 schools across the state, by partnering with organizations like Girls Inc. and Advocates for Youth who also push CSE curriculum, by recruiting students to become peer sex educators in the schools through their Get Real Teen Council program, and by offering training and classes for teachers, just to name a few.

See the training they are offering to educators below. This webinar will help teachers learn how to incorporate Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into sex education classes.

SEL is the vehicle being used to psychologically prepare your students to accept sexual orientation and transgender identity lessons by focusing on feelings as facts and doing away with the notion of objective truth, like believing that there is such a thing as male and female and that no one is born in the wrong body.

SEL replaces parents and seeks to capture the heart and mind of your child. Parents don’t suspect a thing, because SEL teaches things like kindness, empathy, and compassion – all values that are important to all of us.

But, SEL uses these shared values to manipulate children into rejecting what their parents have taught them about sex and gender. SEL teaches that kindness, empathy, and compassion requires consensus on issues of sex and gender. SEL promotes group think. Disagreement = hate.

Is Planned Parenthood in your child’s district? Has your child’s health teacher ever attended a training by PP? Find out.

Opt your child out of CSE classes. Use the sample Opt Out form found in the files section of this group.

The SEL is running rampant on distance (virtual) "learning". It takes up the first hour of the day. It even includes yoga for mindfulness. I may be the only one here to say this, but I'm not a big fan of the teachers calling the children "my friends" . To me it seems like they're putting themselves at the same level as the children. When they should be at a level of mentorship.

Haven't seen anything on sex ed….. yet.

Thank you for all your work that reveals the agenda of SEL and sex Ed.

Wow it's crazy. We are new to public schools system. How do we find out b which schools have those program? Do we just ask the school we are in?

We know if our school is one that’s participating

When can we start the witch trials again?

Hey Mary, What grades are they presenting this to?

I was a teen advisory board member 30 years ago for PP and we only went to schools in which we were invited. Usually to help peers become better educated in safety regarding things they were already doing. We were invited by the schools that typically did not have the ability to teach safety because of some communities back then believing that abstinence only methods were the best. Which we knew then and definitely know now are not. The people we listened to and helped answer questions were in attendance because they wanted to be our their parents wanted them to be. Don't believe they are there to control kids minds, they are there to support and help those make safer and better decisions if the situations arise.

PARENTS BEWARE, is sex on the school calendar in your district?

All year long there is a day, week, or sometimes even month set aside to promote sexual ideology. Many public schools advertise and promote these national and international events.

When you look at these events listed together in the info graph posted below, the picture becomes very clear. There is a real and persistent agenda aimed at sexualizing our children and pushing dangerous and harmful transgender ideology on them.

Schools need to go back to teaching academics and stop inundating our children with sexual content.

Parents, it is time to show up and speak up to protect our kids. If we don’t, who will?

Special thanks to Linda Harvey of Mission America who gathered these dates. A link to her website is below in the comments.

This type of corrupt school board system should be dismantled.

The original source for this is our Mission America article from last September. We just updated all this information! www.missionamerica.com/article/school-corruption-propaganda-calendar/

Mary do you know what districts these are in MA?

Ugh

I don’t understand this was this document made by Massachusetts informed parents? Is it a mock document to point out what our children are being taught?

What ever happen to children learning Math History. Not sex let them make those choices on their own. When old Enough to do so. Don’t shove it down these throats . So grateful my grandchildren go to Catholic Schools. I have a boy genius. In school skipped a grade. Because his parents watch everything he does and gets reports. Thank God My son and daughter in law. Are wonderful Parents !!!!!what ever my grandkids choose is find with me. Love them to the moon and back ! School is not what it use to be , sad that today’s kids go threw this because someone wants to make a choose for them 😢

In our school in Winchester they are promoting this kind of crap.

While I understand that this should not be taught in such length I do however see ma ny closed minds after reading the article. For example "So, if the goal is to reduce harm, why not discourage prostitution among gender confused people (usually males posing as females)? There are other jobs out there, folks" a majority of people are not gender confused. This is who they are and should be embraced like every individual. Please be .sure to talk to your children regarding these differences in all people

This is so sick

Thank you!

My daughter has an SEL class. She is in the 8th grade. Do you know if I can have her opt out of this class? See MoreSee Less

Yes, you should be able to talk to school officials and get her opted out. Are they assigning a grade for this class? I am tagging another MIP mother here who successfully opted her child out of SEL. Michelle LaRowe Conover

It’s your child. You can do what you want. Talk to the principal. Tell them you want to examine the curriculum.

Yes! Don't let them intimidate you‼️

Thank you
