Vote Yes to HB 3027!
Posted on March 30
CWHC attended a lobby day in Springfield this past Wednesday with Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health (ICAH) to encourage State Representatives to vote yes to the sex ed bill currently on the floor. HB 3027 would require schools to provide information this is supported by accepted scientific methods and published in peer-reviewed journals as accurate, objective, and complete. The material would need to be suitable to particular ages or age groups of children and adolescents based on their developing cognitive, emotional, and behavioral capacity. And finally, instructions on both abstinence and contraception for the prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections will be included.
