Planned Parenthood and the “Comprehensive Sex Ed” crowd has launched a national effort to pass legislation that requires that what is taught in schools in our family life education programs is “medically accurate.” It’s a feeble attempt to undermine abstinence education programs, stating that they don’t talk enough about contraceptives, etc. The abstinence providers we’ve talked with know that they are fully medically accurate as they clearly state information about condoms, along with their accurate failure rate when used incorrectly. It’s a silly bill nonetheless.
Yesterday, The Family Foundation defeated Del. Hull’s HB 1789 to ensure that the information taught in FLE is “medically accurate.” Here’s a clip from the sub-committee hearing.
