Senate Republicans Condemn University of Arizona Nursing School Curriculum Aimed at Stealing the Innocence of Young Children

PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senate Republicans are outraged over troubling curriculum being taught at the University of Arizona Nursing School, aiming to cater to the radical left agenda, and to steal the innocence of our young children through the next generation of medical professionals.

Senate Republicans reached out to UArizona, and it's our understanding an image shared by a whistleblower and posted to social media this week depicting a lesson plan on "asking pediatric patients about gender identity" is in fact from inside a classroom at UArizona Nursing School. The image reveals nursing students are being taught to start asking patients as young as three years of age if they "feel like a girl on the inside, feel like a boy on the inside, neither, or both."

"I'm absolutely sickened that this institution of higher learning is perpetuating the lie that a person's gender is based off feelings and not their God-given biological sex established upon conception," said Senator Janae Shamp (R-29), Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services. "This is completely groomer garbage that strives to confuse our kids in an effort to cater to the evil that is being accepted by today's society. As a nurse, I am so disheartened that the next generation of nurses are being hijacked of their capabilities to deliver ethical care."

"This is a disgusting use of your taxpayer dollars. Every single parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or anyone with a heart for children should be infuriated that this is happening at one of our prestigious universities," said Senator Justine Wadsack (R-17), Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Education. "No student seeking to become a medical professional should ever be taught to victimize our kids, and this is exactly what is happening here. UArizona is finding itself in hot water over a number of issues, but this is the straw that broke the camel's back. I'm a UArizona Wildcat. It's where I went to college. It's in my backyard. I'm not happy."

"It is our obligation as lawmakers to stop this extremist agenda that continues to target minors in a predatory fashion," said Senator Ken Bennett (R-1), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education. "I'm looking forward to seeing what action President Robbins takes to ensure that this immoral curriculum being taught, with the use of state funding, never reaches another classroom again."

"If this issue is not immediately resolved by the university, Senate Republicans will weigh all options to make certain tax dollars are no longer used in such an egregious fashion," said Senator T.J. Shope (R-16), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services. "The mental health of our children and the state of our health care industry our being threatened by this radical ideology."
