Ohio Senate Bill 121

Ohio Senate Bill 121

Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom, other organizations, and many informed parents oppose the proposed legislative changes that would come with the passage of Ohio Senate Bill 121.

Current Ohio law prohibits the State Board of Education from adopting or revising any standards or curriculum in the area of health unless the standards, curriculum, or revisions are approved by both houses of the General Assembly through a concurrent resolution, except for venereal diseases. Currently, Ohio parents have an opportunity to hear and respond to proposed changes through the normal legislative hearing process in front of the House and Senate education committees.

According to an Ohio Legislative Service Commission analysis, if passed, Ohio SB121 would repeal this legislation and require the Ohio Department of Education to adopt health standards based on the existing CDC Healthy Schools National Health Education Standards and implement these standards by July 1st, 2020.

Who do you want directing your child’s health education (GMOs, food nutrition, alcohol and drug abuse, relationships, wellness, vaccine issues, abortion, and so on), a bureaucrat in Washington DC, influenced by special interest groups, or your local community?

Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom encourages parents to oppose this bill and to take action!
