Back in March, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) signed the controversial Parental Rights in Education bill, the chief tenet in hte measure was the prohibition of inappropriate sexual material in classrooms for young children.
Nearly nine months later, Congressman-elect Cory Mills (R-FL-7) is proposing the next step. Mills intends to make publishing or distributing such material by educational publishers a federal felony.
In a recent appearance on Just the News, Mills says he intends to introduce the bill upon being sworn in. "This bill will actually make any type of publication; or any type of distribution; of inappropriate, pornographic materials by publishing houses like Scholastic or McGraw-Hill or anything like that, a federal felony," he says.
The Parents' Rights in Education organization details numerous instances of inappropriate material shown to children. A chief offender is the way sex ed is set up, essentially promoting kids to be sexually active. Specifically, the site describes how consent is taught. In a nutshell, it is taught that "so long as it is consensual, it is okay."
Additionally, they tell of the harms and fallout of exposure. The most harrowing instance is that of Jeannette Cooper, a mother who cannot speak to her daughter for insisting her child is not transgender. Even more tragically, not only are STD rates rising among adolescents due to the way sex ed is taught, but also suicide rates, even if there is not a direct connection.
Unsurprisingly, 87% of Floridians agree that parents should be allowed to have a say in their children's education.
At the end of the clip, Mills puts it best when he says, "we have to stop the indoctrination, we have to stop the sexualization, we have to empower parental rights, and that's what this is about."
Real America's Voice tweeted the clip, saying that "Congressman-elect @CoryMillsFL talks about his upcoming legislation that would bring felony charges against publishing houses caught distributing pornographic material aimed at children."
