Did you see the front page of the Boston Globe? The cover story shined a light on the state of sex education in Massachusetts and described the overwhelming, broad support for the Healthy Youth Act. However, the same people that have waged a war on LGBTQ rights, women’s health, and protections for transgender people are trying to block the bill. We must drown out their voices.
The #MeToo movement ignited long overdue discussions about sexual assault and consent. The urgency for sex education and the role it can play in transforming culture has never been clearer. But a small, vocal minority wants to deny young people their right to consent education, medically accurate information, and STI prevention methods that work. One opponent asserted there should be no definition of “medical accuracy” and falsely claimed that parents don’t support comprehensive sex ed. We know these lies have no basis in reality and we need your help to spread the truth.
You’ve been in this fight with us for many years. It’s time to push the Healthy Youth Act over the finish line. Let’s silence the opposition and give young people the sex education they deserve.
Thank you.
