Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Early Human Life Development Education
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that requires early human life development instruction in schools.

The utilization of technology has become commonplace in our schools over the past few years. My legislation aims to incorporate technological advancements with existing State Academic Standards to provide students with a more immersive learning experience.

Specifically, my legislation would require such instruction to include an ultrasound video showing development of vital organs at specified gestational ages, as well as a computer-generated interactive rendering of the weekly stages of human development, beginning with fertilization.

It is important to ensure that our students are learning medically and scientifically accurate information about the full scope of human development from its earliest stages. It is my hope that this legislation equips students with a deeper understanding of human development, reproduction, pregnancy, and life. Please join me in cosponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB2080
