More than just teaching children and youth about sexual intercourse and human reproduction, Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) programs seek to change society by changing sexual and gender norms and teaching youth to advocate for their sexual rights.

Stop CSE!
STOP CSE PALM CARDComprehensive Sex Education is built on lies and crimes against children. Planned Parenthood and SEICUS continue to push this agenda into our classrooms. For a quick overview of the origins of CSE and what it looks like in our classrooms today, see our Comprehensive Sex Education Toolkit (PDF). Also available is our CPL Palmcard (PDF).

What is Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE)?

“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.

What’s the Connection? SIECUS, Planned Parenthood and Comprehensive Sex Education
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 CSE proponents and lobbyists/activists. SIECUS Strategic Framework (PDF)

The SIECUS curriculum goes beyond teaching sexual health education. In their own words, “Sex ed is a vehicle for social change. Full stop.” – now changed in 2022 to “Sex ed is a vehicle for racial justice.” 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…”

The month of May has been rebranded from Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month to Sex Ed for All. SIECUS reveals a list of the organizations that have signed on to promote the goals and ideals of CSE to children!

More about CSE

  • Comprehensive Sexual Health Education (CSE) Webinar (31 minutes)
    presented by Barb Anderson
    CSE is highly explicit and promotes promiscuity and high-risk sexual behaviors to children as healthy and normal. The ultimate goal of CSE is to change the sexual and gender norms of society.
  • Records Requests and Opt Outs
    Find information and forms on how to submit FOIA/record requests and how to opt your child out of CSE. Note that CSE may also be embedded in other subjects other than just health or sex ed.

History of CSE in MN

  • Protect Kids Rally

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 Minnesota legislators.

Planned Parenthood Sexualizes Children in Minnesota (5 minutes)

Karen Englans was the Keynote Speaker for the Protect Kids Rally (26 minutes)

The far-left and Planned Parenthood push progressive CSE that parents argue unnecessarily sexualizes their children through graphic content and detailed information such as how to masturbate, homosexuality, abortion, and gender fluidity. This issue is brought up in the legislature year after year.

Legislative Engagement to Stop CSE

  • Legislation 2021

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.

Is Comprehensive Sex Ed on the Map?

  • Legislation 2019

On April 23, 2019, a majority of State Representatives in the MN House voted to mandate every PreK-12 public/charter school to teach “Comprehensive” Sex Ed (CSE). It was never taken up in the Senate.

Download Roll Call Vote (PDF)
This is the MN House roll call vote for the April 23, 2019 Rep. Peggy Bennett amendment to delete the mandate to teach comprehensive sex education to all MN pre-k through 12th grade public/charter schools.

A YEA vote is a vote to delete comprehensive sex ed (HF1414) from the omnibus education bill HF2400.

A NO vote is a vote to keep mandated comprehensive sex ed in the education bill. The Bennett amendment failed 58-73. The four members not voting were not present at the time of the vote.

    • The Bennett amendment to delete the Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Mandate failed, 58 to 73.
    • The Scott amendment to allow school districts to opt out of the Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Mandate failed 55 to 74.
    • The Scott amendment to require licensed teachers to teach the Comprehensive Sexual Health Education Mandate failed 57 to 75.
