Letter to the Editor

There are many good reasons to vote for Referendum 90. 

These include: (1) Affirmative consent will be an integral part of comprehensive safe sexual health education for students in grades 4 through 12. They we will be taught that they can say no to any unwanted sexual advances and also how to recognize and resist abusive or coercive behavior; (2) local school boards must approve the curriculum content thereby ensuring that the content is appropriate for each grade level and schools must make course materials available to parents; (3) schools must notify parents in advance that sexual health is going to be taught so that patents can opt out their children for any part or all of the content; (4) the content is based on medically accurate factual information; (5) where comprehensive sexual health education is taught there are fewer incidences of unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases and youth are shown to delay sexual activity. 

For additional factual information please go to approve90wa.org and r90inthecommunity.com.

Reject. Say No. The Comprehensive means all the tendrils are woven through multiple subjects and start in kindergarten. The approved materials are neither appropriate nor positive. Reject. Say No...if....you really want choice.
