Obama says sex education for kindergartners ‘right thing to do’

The Chicago Public Schools now mandate that the district’s kindergarten classes teach sex education, as BizPac Review reported Friday. A move that’s in line with a proposal President Obama supported in 2003 as an Illinois state senate and defended when he ran for president in the 2008, according to CNS News.

As can be seen in the video below, while speaking at a Planned Parenthood convention in Washington, D.C., in 2007, a teenage girl asked then-U.S. Sen. Obama what he would do to encourage the teaching of “medically accurate, age-appropriate, and responsible sex education.”

In responding to the planted question, Obama noted that he had worked with Planned Parenthood to push a sex education bill as a state legislator.

He added that his opponent, Alan Keyes, used this as a campaign issue against him, saying, ‘Barack Obama supports teaching sex education to kindergartners.

“And you know,” Obama responded, “I didn’t know what to tell him. But it is the right thing to do, to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in the schools.”

CNS News also reports that the new sex education program in Chicago will instruct kindergartners about same-sex relationships, according to a report published by the local CBS affiliate.

“Students will also take a look at the different family structures that exist in today’s society,” said the CBS report.

Stephanie Whyte, the chief health officer of the Chicago Public Schools, is then quoted: “Whether that means there’s two moms at home, everyone’s home life is different, and we introduce the fact that we all have a diverse background.”
