Pabor si Dawn Chang, 31, na ipasok sa curriculum ang sex education.

Katwiran ng dancer-host, ang pagtuturo sa mga bata ng tamang impormasyon ukol sa sex ay isang paraan ng proteksiyon.

Si Dawn ay nakilala bilang dating miyembro ng It’s Showtime all-female goup na GirlTrends, at hinirang na fourth placer sa Pinoy Big Brother:737 noong 2015.

Bakas ang pagiging feminist ni Dawn at pagiging advocate ng women empowerment sa kanyang mga post.

Ngayong Biyernes, August 28, ni-repost ni Dawn ang headline ng ABS-CBN kaugnay sa pagpabor ng Commission on Higher Education (CHED) na i-integrate ang comprehensive sex education sa kasalukuyang curriculum.

Caption dito ni Dawn: “It’s about time we face the reality. Sex is part of life. Teach young children how to protect themselves instead of telling them NOT to have sex at all.”

Katwiran niya, ang topic ng sex ay higit pa sa usapin tungkol sa pagtatalik.

Ani Dawn: “Sex is not just having a sexual intercourse. It is also diacussing about proper hygiene and a lot more. Children must be taught so they grow up informed.”

Sumang-ayon ang isang netizen sa pagsasali ng sex education sa curriculum.

Dagdag ni Dawn, makatutulong ang tamang impormasyon para masupil ang “unplanned pregnancy.”

“Yup! I’m sure every single one of us has a friend who got or got someone pregnant unexpectedly,” tweet ng dancer.

“Protection is way better than abortion and/or dreams being shattered because of unplanned pregnancy.”

Pagsang-ayon ng isa pang netizen, mas lalong naiintriga ang mga kabataan kapag lalo silang pinipigilan tungkol dito.

Sagot ni Dawn: “Liberation with proper information and understanding is a good thing.”

proposed Prevention of Adolescent Pregnancy Act of 2020

Samantala, sa halip na karagdagang school subject, mas inirerekomenda ng CHED ang pag-i-integrate na lang ng birth-control discussion sa “existing subjects” sa higher education curriculum.

“If the addition is just to integrate it, that will be an easier thing to do,” ani CHED Chair Prospero De Vera noong August 27, Huwebes.

Magiging mas mahirap daw kung gagawa pa ng panibagong subject sa comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) na nakapaloob sa Senate Bill 1334 o ang Proposed Prevention of Adolescent Pregnancy Act of 2020.

Ani De Vera: “Mas mahirap iyan if you have a separate subject because the number of units and the curriculum in general education has already been decided and is already being implemented.

Noong August 25, Martes, inendorso ni Senator Risa Hontiveros ang Senate Bill 1334 sa Senado.

Layon ng proposed bill na mapigilan ang lumalalang kaso ng teenage pregnancy sa bansa.

Ayon kay Hontiveros, chair ng Senate Committee on Women, Children, Family Relations, and Gender Equality, may 24 sanggol ang isinisilang ng “young mothers” kada oras, noong January 2020.

Sa panukalang batas, ang CSE ay magiging “compulsory” sa mga edukasyon “with the end goal of normalizing discussion about adolescent sexuality and reproductive health to remove stigma from all levels.”
