Is Sex Ad by the McCain Campaign right? You be the Judge

Is Sex Ad by The McCain campaign right? You be the judge.

First, read the bill, especially line 14, and judge for yourself.

Now, read this excellent article in National Review Online by Byron York, who interviewed one of the bill’s sponsors.

After reading the bill and York’s article, it’s hard to disagree with York’s conclusion:

“[T]he bill’s intention was to mandate sex education, especially concerning contraception and the prevention of sexually-transmitted diseases, for children before the sixth grade and as early as kindergarten. Obama’s defenders may howl, but the bill is what it is.”

The condemnation has been so widespread that the Obama campaign has begun to sense success in placing the “McCain-is-a-liar” storyline in the press. But before accepting the story at face value, it might first be a good idea to examine the bill in question, look at the statements made by its supporters at the time it was introduced, talk to its sponsors today (at least the ones who will consent to speak), and find answers to a few basic questions. What were the bill’s provisions? Why was it written? Was it really just, or even mostly, about inappropriate advances? And the bottom-line question: Is McCain’s characterization of it unfair?

  1. We don’t need an article and all of the lamestream media to agree before we can comfortably assume the left all over the world are always yearning to foist sex-education upon toddlers. From La to Paris to Auckland, they are regularly trying to ‘educate’ our children all about sex.
