Florida House Passes Expansions to Parental Rights Bill

Florida’s House of Representatives Friday passed, by a 77-35 vote, expansions to the state’s parental rights law that will tighten restrictions on public school lessons on human sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases, and other related topics. 

HB 1069, sponsored by state Rep. Stan McClain, R-Ocala, would restrict public school instruction on human sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases, and related topics to grades 6 through 12 only, reports NBC Miami.

The legislation also targets how teachers and students can use preferred pronouns, as well as lessons on sexual identity and gender orientation, and contains language that says a person’s sex “is an immutable biological trait and that it is false to ascribe to a person a pronoun” that does not correspond with that person’s person’s biological sex.
