(ABC 6 NEWS)--A comprehensive sex education bill, that didn't make it through the last legislative session, is back up again. 

The bill includes language that supporters think teaches more diverse topics so that LGBTQ students can better relate. However, opponents insist that the bill is opening a door between morality and education.

The bill's author, democratic representative, Todd Lippert, is a pastor of the Northfield United Church of Christ. Representative Lippert said his church provides this type of comprehensive instruction and his own children have taken part. 

Republican lawmaker, Peggy Bennett, is against the bill and thinks it would sexualize children. Representative Bennett goes in-depth with Betsy Singer on the partisan issue.
