Dear Rep Lifferth, I am writing to encourage you to support Brian King’s HB 246. It is vital to offer our young people comprehensive sex education as a means of preventing disease, and teen pregnancy and the information they need to understand the difference between a healthy relationship and an unhealthy one. HB 246 is meant to offer parents the ability to allow their children to receive this information at school. It does not in any way restrict a parent from choosing to opt out of these presentations. With teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease rates on the rise in our state, this is a reasonable and responsible bill to get those statistics heading in the right direction again. Thank you, Karri Schlegel
