No doubt, you’ve heard by now that SB 5395, the SeXXX Education Bill, was amended and passed last week in the wee hours of the morning by the House Majority Democrats and then swiftly adopted and passed by Senate Majority Democrats. As the process goes, this triggered the bill’s journey to Governor Inslee’s desk for a decision. The governor can sign the legislation into law, allow it to become law without his signature, or veto the legislation in part or entirely.
The Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW), alongside its policy allies and thousands of concerned Washington parents, has been advocating against this legislation because it requires schools to begin teaching sex education to children as young as 5-years old. The content of the sex education curricula is presumed to be progressive in nature; it contains elements of pornography, and is wrought with indoctrinating themes about “gender identity,” human sexuality, and sexual orientation.

The bill was originally requested by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Chris Reykdal, who has displayed a strong disdain for religious freedom and the rights of parents to be involved in public education.
The OSPI’s proposed sex education standards that will be enforced through SB 5395, should the governor sign it into law, will be used to sexualize our children. Children should be focusing on learning how to read, write, add, and subtract – not being advised how to have sex and who to have sex with.
This is our last stand on the issue of passage for the SeXXX Education Bill. Please make plans to join FPIW at Informed Parents of Washington’s rally at the Washington State Capitol tomorrow, Wednesday, March 11, at 12pm. Here’s more information about the rally.
Whether you can or cannot attend, please take a few moments to contact Governor Inslee to ask him to VETO SB 5395; you can call his office at 360-902-4111 and/or send him an email by clicking this link.
If the governor approves this law, we will continue to battle on this issue after the legislative session ends and throughout the implementation process.
