A BILL

To determine if Alfred Kinsey’s ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Male’ and/or ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Female’ are the result of any fraud or criminal wrongdoing.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ‘Child Protection and Ethics I Education Act of 1995’.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds the following:

      ‘Table 34’ in Alfred Kinsey’s ‘Sexuality in the Human Male’ provides significant reason for the Congress to require an in-depth study be performed to determine if Kinsey and his fellow researchers employed systematic sexual abuse of children to obtain the data tabulated in ‘Table 34’ and other portions of the study.

SEC. 3. STUDY BY GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE (GAO) OF WRONGFUL USE BY AGENCIES AND SCHOOLS OF TAX MONIES TO PROMOTE ERRONEOUS, FRAUDULENT INFORMATION ON SEXUAL BEHAVIOR BASED UPON THE KINSEY REPORTS AND ITS DERIVATIVES.

    (a) IN GENERAL- With respect to agencies, universities, or elementary and secondary schools that receive Federal funds for educational purposes, the Comptroller General of the United States shall conduct a study for the purpose of determining the following:

      (1) Whether programs, lectures, texts, or other pedagogical materials involving sexuality (e.g., AIDS Prevention, Family Life Education, Diversity Education, Sex Education) used by such institutions significantly or particularly rely on the scholarship of, directly or indirectly consisting of, or based on the studies entitled ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Male’ and ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Female’ authored by Alfred Kinsey and his team of researchers and published in 1948 and 1953 (‘Kinsey Reports’).

      (2) The GAO may evaluate whether the contents of the Kinsey Reports are erroneous and/or wrongfully obtained by reason of fraud or criminal wrongdoing (i.e., systematic sexual abuse of children).

    (b) REPORT TO CONGRESS- Not later than May 1, 1996, the Comptroller General of the United States shall complete the study under subsection 1 and submit to the Congress a report describing the findings made in the study.

SEC. 4. KINSEY REPORTS; CONTINGENT PROHIBITION REGARDING FEDERAL FUNDING FOR IMPLICATED UNIVERSITY, COLLEGE, ELEMENTARY, AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS AND RELEVANT AGENCIES.

    (a) If the determination made by the Comptroller General of the United States under paragraph 3(a)(2) is in the affirmative, the Secretary of Education shall ensure that, for fiscal year 1997, and subsequent fiscal years, no Federal funds are provided to any agencies, persons, universities, or elementary and secondary schools for any educational purpose which instruct in Kinsey’s work, and/or derivative Kinseyan scholars and/or scholarship without indicating the unethical and tainted nature of the Kinsey reports. The chief executive officer of the State involved shall certify to the Secretary which such agencies or school programs cite said materials.
