America's youth is at risk due to the irresponsible sexual education laws put into place in the mid 1990's, ditching comprehensive sex ed in favor of abstinence programs.
The comprehensive sexual education topics which vary by state and abstinence curriculums refuse to teach include:
- STD/I education & prevention
- Pregnancy prevention
- Human development
- Decision making
Instead, abstinence education programs teach one possible scenario: abstinence until marriage.
Any other circumstance involving sex or sex related outcomes is completely ignored or even denied. Which is not difficult to do considering that many states do not require sexual information to be medically accurate.
