Young Kim on Families & Children

 

 


Don't teach about relationship violence in sex ed class

Legislative Summary: AB 329, the California Healthy Youth Act, would require school districts to ensure that all pupils in grades 7 to 12 receive comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education.

Pro-teaching argument by the CPEDV (California Partnership to End Domestic Violence): By addressing dating and sexual violence through a school-wide, coordinated policy response, we can create a safe space for students. AB 329 ensures that pupils gain the "knowledge and skills they need to form healthy relationships that are based on mutual respect and affection, and are free from violence, coercion, and intimidation." Dating abuse and sexual violence prevention can be addressed throughout sex education instruction.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 26-14-0 on Sept/10/15; Passed Assembly 51-26-3 on Sept/11/15; State Rep. Young Kim voted NO; Signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Oct/1/15.

Opposed assisted suicide law

Legislative Summary: AB-15 End of Life Option Act: This bill authorizes an adult who has been determined by his or her attending physician to be suffering from a terminal disease, to make a request for a drug prescribed for the purpose of ending his or her life.

Analysis by DeathWithDignity.org: California's physician-assisted dying law took effect on June 9, 2016. Patients may request and physicians may prescribe life-ending medications under the law. The End of Life Option Act closely follows the model of the Oregon Death with Dignity Act with some modifications, most of which are required to comply with the California statute.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Assembly 44-35-1 on Sep/05/2015; State Rep. Young Kim voted NO; Passed Senate 23-15-2 on Sep/11/2015; Signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Oct/15/2015

Against requiring car seats for children under 2

Legislative Summary: AB 53 Vehicles: This bill would require a parent, legal guardian, or the driver of a motor vehicle to properly secure a child who is under 2 years of age in an appropriate rear-facing child passenger restraint system, unless the child weighs 40 or more pounds or is 40 or more inches in height. A violation of these requirements would be a crime.

Pro-car seat argument by CSFTL (Car Seats For The Littles): Rear facing is 5 times safer for children who are between 1 and 2 years old. When children ride rear facing, instead of their head flying forward in a crash, the child's head, neck, and back will be supported by the car seat, reducing the amount of pressure put on the child's undeveloped spine.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Assembly 65-13-2 on May/11/15; State Rep. Young Kim voted NO; Passed Senate 32-7-1 on Aug/24/15; Signed by Governor Jerry Brown on Sept/21/15
