What is CSE?is is what comprehensive sex education is: Your child can have any kind of sex anywhere, anytime, with anybody, at any age, and it’s perfectly normal.
- CSE removes all natural and protective boundaries for children and teens, encouraging early sexual exploration in graphic detail.
- CSE uses porn-like images and graphic descriptions to teach children as young as 10 that all “consensual” sexual activity is their “right”. Example: It’s Perfectly Normal
- CSE teaches kids how to:
- “consent” to sex
- to masturbate
- experience climax
- claim bodily autonomy for abortion rights
- promote multiple sexual orientations and gender identities
- get referrals for abortion and gender counseling with no parental involvement or notification
- have “safe” vaginal, oral and anal sex
- CSE allows unlicensed Planned Parenthood and gender activists into your child’s classroom to teach these dangerous and unhealthy practices.
- CSE grooms children for early sexual activity making them vulnerable targets for sexual abuse, experimentation and trafficking.

SIECUS, Planned Parenthood and Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE): What’s the connection?
SIECUS (Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States) is the umbrella organization of Planned Parenthood and together have launched a national movement to advance Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) in every state and in every school in the nation. SIECUS and Planned Parenthood are the key proponents and lobbyists/activists for CSE.
The SIECUS curriculum goes beyond teaching sexual health education. In their own words, “Sex ed is a vehicle for social change. Full stop.” The goal is to build a foundation for a long-term culture shift. “SIECUS Guidelines for CSE calls for expanding comprehensive sexuality education programs to children as young as five years old….. It should also be noted that according to SIECUS’s own position statements, they believe that sexually explicit visual, printed, or online materials can be valuable educational or personal aids…”

Is Comprehensive Sex Ed on the Map?
The language in 2019 of the CSE mandate, HF1414, was added into the education omnibus bill. It was never taken up in the Senate and the Senate refused to include it in the conference committee. Therefore, the bill never went farther from that point for the year.
In 2021, essentially the same CSE language was introduced as a new bill, HF358, that passed in two committees in the House, always on strictly party line votes. As in 2019, the Senate didn’t schedule a hearing on it. The only way to get it through to the Governor to sign would be to again insert the language into the House education omnibus bill and then hope that the Senate would keep it in the final conference committee negotiations.
Because the Democrats knew the HF358 bill would be another public display with a roll call vote for which every one of their members would be held accountable in the 2022 election, they did not include the language in their education conference committee. This victory is the result of the controversy that all of us created the last time and for all the people who showed up this year to testify against the bill in committee!
We know this issue is not going away because CSE is a high priority issue for the left. HF358 could also be added into next year’s omnibus education bill. However, the left is using a new strategy by going school district by school district to get CSE into the local curriculum. The majority of parents are unaware. Once CSE is in most districts, the legislators can get it passed at the state level without too much opposition.
We need your help especially at the local level! Refer to Ways to Help Stop CSE and get engaged!
On April 23, 2019, a majority of State Representatives in the MN House voted to mandate every Pre K-12 public/charter school to teach “Comprehensive” Sex Ed (CSE). It was never taken up in the Senate.
On September 22, 2019, CPL held a Protect Kids Rally (PDF) to send a message to legislators to protect our children from this forced school mandate! We had nearly 800 concerned parents and citizens from throughout the state including some of our MN legislators.
