Here is the template letter which you can send out:
Dear CO State Senate Health Committee:
My name is ______, and I am a Colorado Resident and member of MassResistance.
We are the international pro-family group that makes the difference.
Our Colorado Chapter has informed us of grave concerns regarding a bill which will be brought before your committee tomorrow afternoon.
I am urging each of you to reject HB19-1032, legislation which has been termed "comprehensive sex-ed" and which would overrule the right of individual school districts to teach only abstinence to their students.
Here are the reasons why:
1. It erodes local control for city and county school boards.
2. It infringes on parental rights.
3. The legislation will teach students that they can engage in high-risk, deviant behaviors without consequence, when such pronouncements are patently false.
4. This sex-ed will normalize deviant behaviors which will short the lifespan of young people and harm them mental as well as physically.
Please vote no. This bill should not even leave committee at 1:30pm on February 28th, 2019.
Please contact me for more information.
